“Arts and Activism”
2017 MMLA Conference’s MVSA-Affiliated Panel
Cincinnati, Ohio
November 9-12, 2017

In keeping with the MMLA conference theme, “Arts and Activism,” the Midwest Victorian Studies Association panel welcomes proposals that explore the intersections between literature, visual art, and activism in 19th century Britain.

Possible topics include:

  • Explorations of or debates around the artist’s role in social change.
  • Authors or artists who express support for or opposition to contemporary social movements through their work.
  • Artistic works that address the relationship between art and activism through their content, formal features, or both.
  • The organizers welcome papers about diverse genres and media and would particularly encourage proposals with significant interdisciplinary/cross-disciplinary engagement, highlighting varied aspects of nineteenth-century British history, literature, and culture.

    The deadline for proposals is April 5, 2017. Please submit a 250-word abstract and a 1-page vita (as Microsoft Word documents) for consideration to mvsaatmmla@gmail.com.
