Keats-Shelley Association mentoring project

The Keats-Shelley Association of America announces the inauguration of a three-year Mentoring Project. This project is designed to aid younger members of the profession in the crucial early stages of their careers by increasing the exchange of scholarly expertise and practical professional information between junior and senior scholars. If a senior scholar (who has earned tenure) would like to be a mentor (for one protégé), he or she should notify the Mentoring Committee, outlining briefly for us his or her range of scholarly or professional areas of expertise (e.g., Charlotte Smith, grant writing). Junior scholars who have earned the Ph.D. but not yet received tenure can request a mentor by describing their own scholarly interests and professional concerns. In March, the Mentoring Committee of the KSAA will match prospective mentors with prospective protégés. Mentors and protégés commit to one year of conversation (vocal, written, and/or electronic).

NASSR 2005: Montreal

North American Society for the Study of Romanticism (NASSR), "Deviance and
Defiance," to be held in Montreal, Canada, 13-17 August 2005. Deadline: 15 January 2005.

The conference topic, “Deviance and Defiance," revisits Romantic transgressions and Romanticism as trangression, how Romanticism is a transgression, is transgressive, and transgresses itself. The topic engages notions of deviance and defiance from numerous perspectives, including the Romantics' defiance of and deviation from the norms of their own period, including questioning the legitimacy of what is "the norm" or "normal" in Romanticism, what is the norm of Romanticism.

POSSIBLE TOPICS for NASSR 2005:
- Political and aesthetic defiance
- Religious deviations and defiance
- Deviating world views at the turn of the eighteenth century
- Sexual deviance and transgression
- Textual deviants

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.
