Call for Papers: Victorian Literature and Science
|Call for Papers Deadline:||2009-11-01|
|The second issue of Victorian Network, guest edited by Dr Ian Henderson (King’s College London), seeks to showcase new research into the connections between Victorian literature and the sciences. Since the publication of Gillian Beer’s seminal Darwin’s Plots(1983), the study of Victorian science and literature as interrelated cultural practices has risen to be one of the largest and most dynamic fields within Victorian Studies. We are inviting submissions of no more than 7000 words that investigate the ways in which scientific disciplines, debates, practices and venues shaped the Victorian cultural imagination. A prize of £50 will be awarded to the best paper submitted. We reserve the right to withhold the prize.
Topics might include but are not limited to:
The shared forms, aesthetics and poetics of literary and scientific discourses
All submissions should conform to MHRA style conventions and the in-house submission guidelines as set out here. The deadline for submissions to our next issue is November 1 2009.
