CALL FOR PAPERS
North American Society for the Study of Romanticism/
North American Victorian Studies Association
Purdue University, Lafayette, IN
31 August - 3 September 2006
For the first time, the two major conferences on the nineteenth century, the North American Victorian Studies Association and the North American Society for the Study of Romanticism, will join forces for a conference at Purdue
University, to be held August 31 to September 3, 2006 (Labor Day weekend). Featured presenters include Timothy Barringer, Alan Bewell, Ross Chambers, Anna Clark, Julie Codell, Tracy Davis, Mary Favret, Neil Fraistat, Catherine Gallagher, Regenia Gagnier, Elaine Hadley, Andrea Henderson, Sonia Hofkosh, John Kucich, Christopher Lane, Celeste Langan, Thomas Laqueur, Rosemary Lloyd, Deidre Lynch, Ghislaine McDayter, Andrew Miller, Timothy Morton, Daniel O¹Quinn, Thomas Pfau, Adela Pinch, and Martin Wiener.
NASSR traditionally has a conference theme, which this year is scientia and techne, by which we intend not only science and technology but also the etymological senses of knowledge and craft. There is no set theme for the NAVSA side of the conference: papers on all aspects of Victorian studies
will be accepted; however, we will be particularly interested in papers that speak to the NASSR theme.
Proposals will be due February 15, 2006. NASSR proposals should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or to one of the special-session organizers listed on the conference web site. NAVSA proposals should be sent to email@example.com
or to one of the special-session organizers listed on the conference web site. Papers rejected by special-session organizers will be given a second vetting by the general conference committee. Proposals should be two pages
(500 words) with a one-page curriculum vitae and should be submitted electronically as an attachment in .doc or .pdf format. All participants must have paid 2006 dues to either NASSR or NAVSA.
Questions should be directed to Dino Franco Felluga:
