The Victorian Caribbean--EXTENDED DEADLINE: Oct. 7

deadline for submissions: 
September 30, 2019
full name / name of organization: 
NeMLA, March 5-8, 2020 (Roundtable)

This roundtable will convene at NeMLA in March of 2020 in Boston: 

Excellent work on African-American writing of the 19th century has appeared within Victorian studies in recent years and brought a new appreciation for the significance of contemporaneous transatlantic slave writing with the British novel. This roundtable hopes to extend that work by bringing the Caribbean slave narrative (and other aspects of Caribbean and Latin American writing and culture) into closer contact with Victorian studies and will also consider how we might re-examine the conventional canon in respect to these topics.

Note: Romanticist and Edwardian perspectives are, of course, welcome, too. 

If you would like to submit a proposal to participate in this roundtable, please do so through the NeMLA website:

The session is titled The Victorian Caribbean and is numbered 17955.
