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, “Oppression and Uprisings,” will be held virtually, April 9-10, 2021. It will include a Keynote Panel featuring Simon Gikandi (Princeton), Jed Esty (UPenn), and Helena Michie (Rice). Registration for “Oppression and Uprisings” is free for graduate students and retirees; we ask only that faculty donate to NVSA, if they can, in any amount, to support graduate mentorship and future in-person conferences.
