MVSA 2017 Seminars Full CFPs and MVSA Conference Full CFP

We are excited to announce the call for seminar papers for the Midwest Victorian Studies Association 2017, with the theme of “Victorian Taste.”  Participants in MVSA seminars will write 5-7 page papers that will be pre-circulated to the other participants prior to the conference.  During the seminars, the seminar leader and participants will identify important points of intersection and divergence among the papers and consider future areas of inquiry and collaboration.  Seminars are limited to 12 participants. Proposals are due November 16, 2016.

This year’s seminars include:
“Victorian Poetry in Good and Bad Taste,” with Julie Carr, University of Colorado, Boulder
“Shopping for Taste: The Marketplace and Everyday Cultures of Distinction,” with Erika Rappaport, University of California, Santa Barbara
“Liberalism, Sociability and Musical/Literary Taste” with Phyllis Weliver, St. Louis University
