VSAWC 2019 Conference
University of Calgary
May 2-3, 2019
VSAWC would like to invite you to submit abstracts on the theme of "Victorian Sociability" for the annual conference of the Victorian Studies Association of Western Canada, to be held at the University of Calgary on May 2nd and 3rd, 2019.
In additional to a traditional conference, VSAWC will be inviting delegates to participate in the creation of a digital humanities project. The "Map of Victorian Literary Sociability", co-sponsored by the Orlando Project and VSAWC, aims to uncover the spatial networks that allowed writers, artists, editors, and publishers to collaborate and sustain successful careers. No technical knowledge is necessary to participate in this project.
Our keynote speaker is Professor Alison Booth, and Professor Susan Brown will be holding a plenary workshop.
Early May is shoulder season in the Canadian Rockies, and this year's VSAWC could be a great opportunity for anyone looking to combine a holiday and a conference.
