Calls for papers: a weekly round up


Victorian Hesitations: Indeterminacy in Language, Art, and Politics 28-31 May 2012

Victorian Studies Association of Ontario/ Assoc. of Canadian College and University Teachers of English - Joint Panel 

This conference will consider the  traces of equivocation, vacillation, and indecision that lie behind all the evidence of Victorian vim and vigour. It invites papers that explore suspended moments in Victorian culture – moments when a delay, however long, was of real consequence. How did the Victorians understand hesitation? How did they weigh the ethics of equivocation against the virtues of candor? How did their moments of uncertainty manifest themselves in movement? How was the difference between deliberation and doubt calibrated in this age of enterprise?

The deadline for submission is 15 November 2011. Abstracts should be sent to Constance Crompton at VSAOatACCUTE@gmail.com
. For further information, including submission details, see the NAVSA blog.
