33rd ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE NINETEENTH CENTURY STUDIES ASSOCIATION
From Romanticism's spiritual resurgence to the interrogations of Darwinism and science, the nineteenth century was immersed in conversation about the place of spirituality and religion in society, politics, and the arts. Paper and panel proposals are welcome on all aspects of belief, religion, and spirituality in the long nineteenth century, from 1789 to 1914.
Papers might include, but are not limited to: retreats, communes and utopias; group spirit; altered states; awakenings, revivals and reforms; religious doctrines and dogmas; free spirits, lunatics, and addicts; acts of faith and interfaith; non-European spiritual traditions; emotions and the unconscious; revered commodities and capital; sacred texts, pictures, music and shrines; spiritual tours and monuments; shamans, mediums, and psychics; secular and aesthetic spirituality; spirituality of agnostics and atheists; fear of and reaction to spirituality and religion. Please e-mail abstracts (250 words) for 20-minute papers that provide the author's name and paper title in the heading, as well as a one-page c.v., to Phylis Floyd AND Michael Duffy by September 30, 2011.
