NINES Workshop

NINES Workshop in Digital Scholarship

This is to announce a week-long workshop for scholars undertaking digital projects in nineteenth-century British and American literary and cultural studies. The workshop will be held at the University of Virginia, 18-22 July 2005, and will provide a practical setting where scholars can work at the development of their individual projects with other scholars who have shared interests, goals, and problems to be addressed. The theoretical, technical, administrative, and institutional issues connected to the development of digital scholarly work will focus the workshop's activities, which will be organized around and driven by the needs of the specific projects themselves.

The workshops will be run by faculty and staff at U. of Virginia involved with the NINES (Networked Infrastructure for Nineteenth-Century Electronic Scholarship) and ARP (Applied Research in Patacriticism) projects.

Call for Papers: BARS 2005

FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS
BARS: The British Association for Romantic Studies Biennial Conference
deadline October 15, 2004

ROMANTICISM'S DEBATABLE LANDS
http://www.ncl.ac.uk/bars2005/
28-31 July 2005
University of Newcastle
Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

The phrase 'Debatable Lands' has been used in reference to disputed parts of the Anglo-Scottish Border since at least the sixteenth century. Popularised by Walter Scott, the term was extended to other geographical areas and into metaphorical use in the nineteenth century. Macaulay in 1828 described history as the "debatable land" between Reason and Imagination. The BARS conference of 2005 invites an assessment of Romanticism's Debatable Lands in the fullest and broadest senses of the phrase.

SWIRL Symposium in Bristol

The first SWIRL symposium will be held in Bristol at the University of Bristol, on Friday 29 October 2004.

http://www.bris.ac.uk/romanticstudies/swirl

The South West Interdisciplinary Romanticism Link (SWIRL) has three aims: to strengthen a network of scholars working on different aspects of the period 1750-1850, to facilitate debate across the disciplines, and to boost the profile of Romantic studies in the region. We envisage a forum in which academics from the South West and beyond could explore the intellectual and professional challenges that currently energise our field.
