Place: Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States
Date: April 11-13, 2014
Submission deadline for abstracts: October 31, 2013
More information: Midwest Victorian Studies Association

Description: »Papers are sought for topics related to the conference theme of "Victorian Violence." Contributions may consider any aspect of conflict or resistance and its representations in art, music, history, or literature: violence in the army, the colonies, the prisons, the streets, the workplace, the family, the home, and even the animal kingdom. Papers on resistance to violence – such as anti-vivisection or the British anti-war movement – are also welcome, as are talks on indirect and systemic forms of violence. We are planning a collection of essays based on the conference.«
