I haven’t been to too many conferences yet, but I imagine that blithe comments about necrophilia and incest are relatively rare, and them being met with easy laughter is rarer still. Perhaps I shouldn’t have been surprised that this happened at the conference of the International Gothic Association (IGA), but I didn’t expect the atmosphere … Continue reading Report from the 12th Biennial IGA Conference: Gothic Migrations
NASSR-time is upon us, and I am very excited to see many of our Romanticist writers and readers in Winnipeg! Readers can expect an update on the conference — and particularly the sessions for graduate students — next week. But first, I’d like to give my report on The Dickens Universe 2015, which I attended … Continue reading Dickens in Eden, 2.0
The topic for this year’s conference, in Berkeley, CA, is “Romanticism and its Discontents.” See the full call for papers here: https://nassrberkeley2016.wordpress.com/call-for-papers/. Proposals for individual papers are due on February 8, 2016. Deadline for proposing an open-call session is November 2, 2015. Deadline for proposing a complete panel or roundtable is also February 8, 2016.
By Caitlin Rose Myers We would all agree that conferences are an essential part of the job of academic. However, I’ve recently discovered firsthand that fulfilling this part of our job is extremely difficult for those scholars and graduate students who have disabilities, in ways that are often overlooked – not out of malice, but … Continue reading Guest Post: Disability and Visibility at the Academic Conference
As I detailed in my first post this academic year, I am in Paris on a critical theory fellowship studying French philosophy and environmental history. This month, two particularly significant events took place: the first–as part of the “Make It Work” initiative at the Institut d’Études Politiques de Paris (« Sciences Po »)–was Forum COP21: Civil Society Committed to the Environment; the second … Continue reading « Make It Work » : Velocities of Engagement, The COP21 Forum and Nuit Blanche 2015
Dear Readers, We at the NGSC hope you are enjoying a pleasant and productive semester! A whole range of exciting calls for papers has just been announced for Spring and Summer 2016 — many of which celebrate Romantic bicentennials. Here’s a brief taste of some of what’s ahead — and which deadlines to note down. … Continue reading New Romantic CFPs!
Last month, I had the pleasure of attending the annual conference of the Canadian Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (CSECS), which was held from October 14–17 in Vancouver, BC. The theme of the conferences was “States of the Book.” Papers covered topics related to the long eighteenth century, and although most related to literature, there were … Continue reading Report from the Canadian Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (CSECS) Conference
Today marks the halfway point of the COP21 United Nations Climate Summit, a multinational effort–including some 30,000 delegates and diplomats from 195 countries–to produce a global accord to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, slow and eventually stop human-produced global warming, and begin to alleviate environmental problems associated with the industrial-scale burning of fossil fuels. Because the climate … Continue reading COP21: Halfway Through
With winter break almost now in full swing, we have to come to a frightening realization: MLA 2016 in Austin is just 3 weeks away! In preparation for this event, the largest of our academic yearly conferences, some of us might be sweating profusely over the idea of interviewing for those dearly coveted jobs, while … Continue reading Planning for MLA!
Introduction: It’s been two and a half weeks since the COP21 concluded, and it has taken as long for me to feel I could begin forming my own perspective on the events. In one of the last remaining assemblies where all nations are equitably represented, according to the aspirations of the mission, and progress is made only … Continue reading COP21: Opinion Piece

Over the course of the week, you’ll be hearing from Deven Parker, Cailey Hall, … Continue reading NASSR 2016 Rapid Response: Day One
Saturday’s tweets about NASSR 2016 via Storify Saturday at NASSR was a marathon day for me, starting with an 8:30 am seminar run by the brilliant Mary Favret. Cheekily titled “Affect: Enough Already!” the seminar examined the role affect studies has played in the field. Among other questions, Favret asked: What has a focus on affect taught … Continue reading NASSR 2016 Rapid Response: Day Three
Sunday’s Tweets about NASSR 2016 via Storify So here we are, at the end of NASSR 2016, with all of us likely traveling across the U.S. and Canada this evening, or on our way across the Atlantic or Pacific, heading back to our home institutions. Hopefully we’re re-invigorated with an exceptional amount of insight, inspiration, and innovation … Continue reading NASSR 2016 Rapid Response: Final Day!
One of the last panel slots of NASSR 2016 was reserved for a roundtable with contestants of the Romantic Circles‘s Pedagogy Contest, hosted by RC Pedagogies editor Kate Singer. This year’s competition featured these finalists: Simon Bainbridge (Lancaster University) – “Wordsworth Online and On Location: Teaching Romantic Writing Beyond the Literature Classroom” Michelle Levy (Simon … Continue reading NASSR 2016 – Progressive Pedagogies
I grew up in Toronto, but having lived on the west coast for the last five years, for me, one of the highlights of this year’s Canadian Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (CSECS-SCEDHS) conference was the chance to see snow! The conference was held in Kingston, Ontario, from October 26–30, 2016, and was sponsored by Queen’s … Continue reading Report from CSECS-SCEDHS 2016
Every day during this year’s conference, one or more NASSR grads will post a recap of the day’s events. Many delegates are livetweeting, so we’re also using Storify to capture each day’s highlights. Storify Recap https://storify.com/EditrixCaroline/nassr-2017-day-one Stephanie Edwards’ Recap As a NASSR conference newbie, my first day of this year’s conference was a haze of drinking … Continue reading NASSR 2017 Daily Recap: Thursday, Aug. 10
Storify Recap goo.gl/72nGe6 Caroline Winter’s Recap I started the day by chairing a wonderful panel on Affect and Economics. I was especially excited about this since I’m working on Romantic economics myself. It was lovely to hear about the work that others are doing in this area, and it made me wonder what became of … Continue reading NASSR 2017 Daily Recap: Friday, Aug. 11
Storify Recap goo.gl/vGGC8h Stephanie Edwards’ Recap Day three of the NASSR conference, for me, signaled the beginning of a shift in my conference-going interests. On Friday, I attended the roundtable on Romanticism after Black Lives Matter, a roundtable that I plan to discuss at length in my conference postmortem blog post. What is important in … Continue reading NASSR 2017 Daily Recap: Saturday, Aug. 12
Storify Recap goo.gl/i1AV1i Stephanie Edwards’s Recap Day four of the conference was, undoubtedly, the most exciting for me since it was the day of my own panel. Before my mid-morning panel, I heard some interesting and unique papers at “The Life of Things.” Brianna Beehler’s paper, “Frankenstein’s Doll: Production Narratives, Animation, and the Novel,” offered … Continue reading NASSR 2017 Daily Recap: Sunday, Aug. 13
