NEMLA: Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; April 3-6, 2014
Criminals and criminal society were an affront to Victorian sensibilities; however, certain Victorian writers risked opprobrium by depicting criminals and criminal life in their fiction. This panel invites submissions that explore Victorian writers and depictions of criminality. Topics might include, but are not limited to, the following: literary constructions of criminality; women and crime; the criminal child; literature as a means of social change; crime and punishment. Please send 250-300 word abstracts to Kristin.LeVeness@ncc.edu.
