We are looking for one more paper and a moderator to complete our panel for the PCCBS conference. The proposed theme is a fairly broad one - a discussion of visual images of the late 18th to early 20th century in Great Britain that either through the chosen medium or subject matter invoke the notion of change, progress, or modernity. A paper exploring new technologies that enabled the industrial/mechanical reproduction of the image - as in lithography, photography, cinema etc. - would be welcome, but you are also encourage to treat the theme more conceptually. We ask how people visualized and visually represented the age in which they lived as tilting toward the future. It is about the imagination behind the images; the message intrinsic to the new technical media. The deadline for submisssions is Nov. 14th so time is short, but all that would be required is a 200 word proprosal describing your project. Papers would be presented the weekend of March 14th in San Diego, CA at the Pacific Coast Conference on British Studies annual meeting.
