Call for Papers
34th ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF
THE NINETEENTH CENTURY STUDIES ASSOCIATION
Fresno, California, March 7-9, 2013
The 19th century set the world on the move. Travel became increasingly important for business and pleasure, for war and peace. But motion wasnít purely spatial; new movements swept people into fresh vistas of thought and endeavor. We seek papers and panels that capture the sense of movement at work and at play during the long 19th century (1789-1914).
Suggested topics include: Gold Rushes (Mineral Manias and Speculative Destinations), Literature of the Sea, Maps and Cartography, The Science of Exploration, Narratives of Time Travel and Travel into Space, The West as Destination and Concept, Celebrity Performance Tours, Movement of Goods and Ideas, Migration and Relocation, Expeditions, New Forms of Creative Motion (Moving Pictures, Photography, Dance, Music). We also welcome other interpretations of the conference theme.
Please e-mail 250-word abstracts for 20-minute papers that provide the authorís name and paper title in the heading, as well as a one-page cv, to Prof. Toni Wein at
NCSAfirstname.lastname@example.org by 9/30/12 (submission of a proposal indicates intent to present). Presenters will be notified in Nov. 2012. Graduate students whose proposals are accepted may then submit complete papers in competition for a travel grant to help cover expenses.
