CFP: NAVSA-ACCUTE Panel “Sustaining the Past, Predicting the Future” ACCUTE 2024 (Deadline 11/17/23)

Panel: "Sustaining the Past, Predicting the Future"
Association of Canadian College and University Teachers of English (ACCUTE)
McGill University, Montreal
June 12-25, 2024

Submission Deadline: November 17, 2023

The NAVSA-ACCUTE panel organizers are pleased to invite proposals from all NAVSA members to participate in the next conference organized by the Association of Canadian College and University Teachers of English (ACCUTE) to be held as part of the annual Congress for the Humanities and Social Sciences, in Montréal, at McGill University, 12-15 June 2024.

Inspired by this year's Congress Theme of “Sustaining Shared Futures” the NAVSA-ACCUTE 2024 panel theme as articulated in the title offers an array of intriguing keywords for presenters to explore in 20 minute papers. Proposals may focus on one or both sides of the comma, with ideas for papers that develop ideas about “sustaining the past” and/or “predicting the future” in Victorian literature and culture. Feel free to take these phrases in whatever directions you wish and frame your proposals accordingly. Some possible avenues and themes of exploration in line with our prompt might be (but are by no means limited to):

  • Victorian concepts, methods and actions for sustainability
  • Models of Victorian history and historiography
  • Victorian preservation projects
  • Victorian libraries, archives, and museums
  • Futures as imagined in Victorian literature
  • Predictable Victorian plots
  • The past and future of Victorian studies as a field of inquiry

Instructions for submission:


Joint-sponsored panels are held at the ACCUTE conference and are co-sponsored by another association and are intended to foster links between ACCUTE and other scholarly associations. Panelists are not required to be ACCUTE members so long as they are members of good standing in the co-sponsoring association, but only ACCUTE members will be eligible for travel funding. 300-500 word proposal, including a 100-word abstract and a brief biographical note using our Online Submission Form prior to November 17, 2023. Please ensure you include the title of the panel you are submitting to.
