The Victorian Studies Association of Western Canada is excited to announce the theme for our 2016 conference, “Victorian Intimacies.” The conference will explore Victorian concepts, representations, and experiences of intimacy. We invite papers that examine Victorian studies’ enduring interest in the intimate relationships among bodies, things, environments, and practices. For further information about the conference, please check out the conference website:

We look forward to seeing everyone in April!
