Registration is now open for the *Race, Nation and Empire on the Victorian Popular Stage* conference, to be held at the Storey Institute, Lancaster UK - 11-14 July 2012.

- childhood and youth
- actors on tour
- representations of the military in popular culture
- local and provincial performance culture
