Last call! This panel aims to use the framework of oceanic studies to interrogate Victorian sea fiction. We welcome work on nineteenth-century writers across the Anglophone world, though could be open to works in other languages. We are particularly looking for works that do not fall into traditional nationalist canons of literature or works that epitomize transnational networks of culture, empire, and economics.
