CFP: Reading Love and Violence in Victorian Literature

Conference: 43rd Annual Convention of the Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
Place: Rochester, NY
Date: March 15-18, 2012
Submission deadline for proposals: September 30, 2011

Description: »This panel will explore the dynamics of love and violence in the British literature of the Victorian period, examining the question of why this fascination, why the rich and frequent presence of these sites of violence and love in an age that extolled the virtues of restraint, moderation, control. What can such an inquiry tell us about the age, its artists, and their audience?«
