The Victorian Interdisciplinary Studies Association of the Western
United States (VISAWUS) announces its ninth annual conference, hosted by
the Department of English at the University of Washington in Seattle,
Washington, October 21-23, 2004
The focus of this year's conference is Victorian Innovations. We invite
proposals for 20 minute papers or full panels (three papers) addressing
the full range of the Victorians' innovations, both those still with us
(state financed education, manufactured traditions) and those that died
out. We ask that the papers and panels take an interdisciplinary
approach, or address issues that may be addressed by more than one
discipline. Paper proposals, a maximum of the equivalent of two
double-spaced pages, should be emailed to the enclosed address.
We are pleased to announce that the 2004 keynote speaker will be Susan
P. Casteras, professor of art history, University of Washington.
The conference hotel will be the Silver Cloud Inn University Village,
5036 25th Avenue NE, Seattle, WA 98105. For reservations or hotel
information, phone (206) 526-5200 and ask for VISAWUS rates for any or
all evenings from October 20-23. Sessions will be held on the UW
campus, about six blocks from the hotel. Further information concerning
fees, transportation, conference meals etc. will be available soon from
Conference Co-Chair Cara Lane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for proposals will be June 4, 2004.
