The Victorian Studies Association of Western Canada and the Victorian Interdisciplinary Studies Association of the Western United States invite proposals for their 2017 joint conference, “Victorian Education.” The conference will explore Victorian concepts, theories, and expressions of education, teaching, and learning. We welcome papers that examine the Victorian interest in education and its relationship with widespread concerns about personal development, progress, and improvement at the individual, spiritual, and national levels. We also invite proposals for papers, panels, or workshops that explore the teaching of Victorian literature and culture in today’s college and university environments. The conference will also include a publication workshop for graduate students and junior scholars.
