CFP: NVSA 2016
Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ
April 8-10, 2016
The Northeast Victorian Studies Association invites papers for its annual conference; the topic this year is Victorian Outliers.
We welcome papers on any individual or type of Victorian Outlier, as well as theorizations of the outlier as a category in aesthetic, geological, historical, imperial, literary, mathematical, musical, natural historical, philosophical, psychological, and other domains.
Proposals (no more than 500 words) by Oct. 15, 2015 (email submissions only, in Word format), should be sent to: Jonathan Farina, Chair, NVSA Program Committee: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: all submissions to NVSA are evaluated anonymously. Successful proposals will stay within the 500-word limit and make a compelling case for the talk and its relation to the conference topic.
Please do not send complete papers, and do not include your name on the proposal. Please include your name, institutional and email addresses, and proposal title in a cover letter. Papers should take 15 minutes (20 minutes maximum) so as to provide ample time for discussion.
