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 and Canada, invites submissions from graduate students, faculty, and independent scholars.

Our next conference, “Recovery,” will be held April 8-10, 2022. We hope to return to Johns Hopkins University in person, if conditions permit doing so safely, but we are awaiting approval. 


Future Conferences:

2022: Johns Hopkins University (tentatively*), “Recovery,” April 8-10, 2022

     *If necessary, for safety or because of continuing University restrictions, the conference will be held remotely via      Zoom during the same dates.

Check out the CFP! Proposals of 500 words are due by October 15, 2021 to the Mimi Winick, Chair of the Program Committee, at
