Organization

The Northeast Victorian Studies Association has since 1975 brought together scholars specializing in nineteenth-century British literature, history, and the arts. Our annual conference, held in the spring at locations across the American northeast, invites submissions from graduate students, faculty, and independent scholars.

Registration is now live for our next conference, “Victorian Accidents,” to be held April 10-12, 2015, in Providence, Rhode Island.

This 40-year anniversary conference will feature plenary addresses by George Levine (Rutgers), Ross Hamilton (Barnard), and Jason Puskar (Wisconsin-Milwaukee), and five sessions: “Agency, Determinism, and Chance”; “Narrating Contingency”; “Accidents and Literary Form”; “Institutions and Accidents”; and “Disaster and Representation.” Please see our conference website for more details.
