The terms “community” and “immunity” on both local and global scales have become semantically interdependent with unparalleled currency. They have triggered debates about stopping the propelling cycle of immunization that claims to benefit the community and raised concerns about the pressing need to maintain naturally invulnerable societies. Prominent among the theorists who highlight the close and problematic connection between the two notions is Roberto Esposito (2012), who posits that “community” points to difference and that “immunity” designates relation/contagion.

The University of Calgary English Department’s Free Exchange Conference committee is excited to announce our annual conference will be taking place in person on August 25 and 26th, 2023! We invite applications from any graduate student to speak to this year’s theme, “This is Fine: Existentialism, Performance, Apocalypse.”

We invite applications that seek to engage with the theme in whatever sense feels appropriate to you. What does the future look like? What will happen to the earth? How do we make sense of our time? What does art do for us? How do we make meaningful art? How does climate change affect our art-making? How do we perform apocalypse? How do we perform care?

This collection aims to continue the work of diversifying the 19th-century British literary canon. Many authors who were revolutionary and popular during their time are now underrepresented in the current scholarly field. The essays in the collection will touch on underread texts and authors as well as underappreciated characters in more traditionally canonical works. We welcome essays using lenses such as disability studies, trauma theory, critical race theory, queer theory, postcolonial studies, and more.

Chapter proposals can include but are not limited to:

  • Underread 19th-century British authors

  • 19th-century diaries or letters that have been critically ignored
