Joint Meeting of MIVSS (Midlands Interdisciplinary Victorian Studies Seminar) and MRS (Midlands Romantic Seminar)
Friday 13 January 2012, 2pm–5pm (Loughborough University)
The next meeting of the Midlands Interdisciplinary Victorian Studies Seminar (MIVSS) will take place at Loughborough University on 13th January 2012 and will be held jointly with the Midlands Romantic Seminar. Our theme is ‘Borders’, which we hope to interpret broadly in both theoretical and practical terms, but with a particular focus on issues of periodicity, the borders between disciplines, and the many conceptual borders, boundaries, and thresholds that inform, challenge, and shape humanities research and teaching in the long nineteenth century. In addition to two keynote speakers, we would like to invite proposals for two additional papers on this theme. For further details, expressions of interest, or to offer a paper, please contact one of the MIVSS committee.
