“Moving Forms: The Global Circulation of Victorian Narrative Innovations ,” NAVSA 2015

Deadline: November 21, 2014

Dates: July 9-12, 2015

Location: Hawaii

CFP from VICTORIA Listserv

A panel proposal for NAVSA (July 9-12, 2015, Hawaii)

Organizers:  Pablo Mukherjee (Warwick); John Plotz, (Brandeis)

Abstracts sought for a panel that will explore ways in which narrative innovations, or generic and formal variants, circulate globally between (an approximate date-range only) 1880-1900. The post-Darwin rise of Naturalist fiction under various names is one area of special interest; another is crime fiction’s global circulation; another is the debates on “diffusion” of folk-tales (e.g. Lang, Jacobs et. al.). But other instances are equally welcome.

Thanks in advance for reposting and circulating this CFP to relevant venues!

250-500 word abstract plus 1-page CV by November 21 to plotz@brandeis.edu
