Reminder: MVSA 2014 'Victorian Violence" (10/31/2013; 4/11-13/2014)

2014 MVSA Conference
The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan
April 11-13, 2014
Deadline: October 31, 2013

The deadline for proposals for Midwest Victorian Studies Association 2014, to be held on the campus of the University of Michigan this April 11th to 13th, is fast approaching. Proposals are due this Thursday, October 31, 2013.

Please see our conference website for more details about our 2014 conference theme of “Victorian Violence.”  We also welcome proposals for our "Victorian Pedagogy" roundtable.  Presenters will introduce innovative and successful strategies for teaching Victorian literature, history, music, and culture in the classroom.


The committee is excited to introduce seminars to this year’s conference format.  Participants will pre-circulate position papers and, through conversation, work to identify important points of intersection and divergence.  Seminars will be held on the topics of “Colonial Violence,” led by Dr. Richard Price (University of Maryland), “Political Violence At Home and Abroad,” led by Dr. Bill Meier (Texas Christian University), and “Sensational Violence: ‘The Mysteries Which Are At Our Own Doors,’” led by Dr. Lisa Surridge (University of Victoria).  Detailed seminar descriptions are available at the website; proposals for the seminars are also due this Thursday.

In addition, the committee would like to invite applicants to “like” our Facebook page so that they can keep track of events and discussions of interest to Victorianists across disciplines.
