2017 NAVSA/AVSA Conference
May 17-20, 2017
For the second time, NAVSA and AVSA will join forces for a conference in Italy. This time the event will occur at NYU’s La Pietra campus in Florence. The conference will run from May 17 to May 20, 2017 and will be run jointly by NYU and Purdue University.
There will be no specific theme—any topic of interest to Victorian scholars will be considered; however, given the location, the organizers would be particularly interested to see papers on topics such as: the Victorians in Italy, the representation of Italy in the nineteenth century, private collections, tourism, art, and garden design.
This is a reminder that proposals are due October 1, 2016. They should be two pages (500 words) with a one-page curriculum vitae and should be submitted electronically as an attachment in .pdf format at: http://www.navsa.org/submissions/conference-proposals/.
If a whole panel is proposed, please include a cover letter explaining the logic behind the panel. All participants must have paid 2017 dues to NAVSA or AVSA:
