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.
