The conference program for the Swinburne Centenary conference to be held July 10 and 11 at the University of London has been released. It looks like the entire Swinburnean world will be there.
Immediately following this will be the 2009 NAVSA/BAVS conference at Cambridge: the draft program is available on their site. Looks to be a terrific conference. A sample session that caught my eye:
‘Uses, Re-Uses and Disposals’ (Fellows’ Dining Room)
Chair – Simon Dentith ( Reading)
Herbert F. Tucker (Virginia), ‘Indisposed: Towards a Victorian Ecology of Junk’
Dino Franco Felluga (Purdue), ‘George Eliot, Lord Byron and What Must be Kept in the Act of Casting Away’
Nicholas Dames (Columbia), ‘Novel Uses for Biblical Form c. 1860’
