From emerging ideas about the perils of environmental degradation to the establishment of the National Trust, the concept of sustainability began to take on a new importance in the Victorian period that remains relevant in 21-st century modernity. The British Association of Victorian Studies welcomes proposals which address any aspect of Victorian sustainability and especially encourage interdisciplinary approaches.
Proposals (300 words max.) are due by March 31, 2014, and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Panel proposals (comprised of 3 paper proposals, plus an additional 300 words explaining how the papers are linked in addressing the theme) are also welcome.
