(University of Sunderland), Tim Webb (University of Bristol)

A one-and-a-half-day conference organized by the Department of English, taking place in Bristol on Thursday 28th and Friday 29th September, 2006.

"Is there no stopping the eternal wheels of the Press for half a century or two, till the nation recover its senses? Must we magazine it and review [it] at this sickening rate for ever? Shall we never again read to be amused? but to judge, to criticise, to talk about it and about it": "Lepus" (Charles Lamb), "Readers Against the Grain," The New Times (January, 1825).

We welcome papers discussing any aspect of magazine publication during a period marked by a highly prolific, competitive, and innovative milieu.

CFP: "Up-To-Date With a Vengeance"


Inspired by Bram Stoker's innovative narrative forms and themes in Dracula--and in particular by Jonathan Harker's statement in his journal that he is witnessing the "nineteenth-century up-to-date with a vengeance"--this conference will explore the thoroughly modern forms of communication, technological development, and scientific discovery that emerged in the period.

This conference will explore the thoroughly modern forms of communication, technological development, and scientific discovery that emerged in the period. We also encourage investigations of twenty-first century scientific and technological legacies and media representations of nineteenth-century subjects.

Conference: Home and Abroad; Transnational England, 1750-1850

"Home and Abroad: Transnational England, 1750-1850," A One-Day, Summer Conference at Oxford University, Friday, 28 July 2006

Invited Speakers Include:
Fiona Stafford (Somerville College, Oxford University)
Michael Eberle-Sinatra (Université de Montréal)

This interdisciplinary conference aims to examine discourses between England and other countries from 1750-1850 through the lens of the national and the global. ‘Home and Abroad: Transnational England’ invites discussions concerning the formation of English identity or ‘Englishness’ through its distinction from and dialogue with other nations. In addition, it asks us to consider the role, influence, and representation of foreign cultures in England. Further, it offers the opportunity to understand how distinctions between England and other nations collapsed, as multinational cultural, ideological, political, and commercial trends merged, were filtered, and dispersed.
