North American Victorian Studies Association Annual Meeting

Yale University, New Haven, CT
November 14-16, 2008

NAVSA 2008 will offer an interdisciplinary examination of the cultures of Victorian Britain: high and low, domestic and imperial, metropolitan and regional. The conference will welcome presentations on topics from the widest possible range of disciplines and interdisciplinary approaches, including those that define Victorian Britain broadly to encompass comparative perspectives on colonial and continental subjects.

In a series of special sessions called “Material Study,” conference participants will have opportunities to explore Yale’s nineteenth-century collections and resources in the areas of the fine arts, visual and material culture, the book as object, music, and the performing arts. Keynote speakers will be Catherine Hall (University College London) and Elizabeth Prettejohn (University of Bristol).

CONFERENCE REGISTRATION will take place on Friday, November 14th from 8:00am to 7:00pm; and on Saturday, November 15th from 8:00am to 4:00pm. The registration table will be located in the foyer of Linsly-Chittenden Hall, at 63 High Street, right off of Chapel Street. For further guidance, please see this interactive campus map:
