MLA 2016 logo

Now that all calls for papers for MLA 2016 sessions are available, here is our list of sessions related to British 19th-century studies. Click through to view the session’s complete details including deadline and contact information. The full list of calls for papers is available for searching and browsing by members and non-members.

For those keeping track of periodization and its terminology, the calls for special sessions this year include four that identify themselves with “Romantic”/”Romanticism,” three “nineteenth-century,” and just one “Victorian.” Adding in those that use date ranges or focus on authors (this year just Jane Austen and William Morris) brings the count up to 7 calls on Romantic/early-19th, 4 full-century, and 4 Victorian/later-19th.

This year’s list debuts the MLA’s new organizing structure, which now consists of allied organizations, forums (formerly divisions and discussion groups), and member-organized special sessions:
