12th Annual VPFA Conference
‘Victorian Encounters and Environments’
15-17th July 2020
University of Greenwich, London
The Victorian Popular Fiction Association is dedicated to fostering interest in understudied popular writers, literary genres and other cultural forms, and to facilitating the production of publishable research and academic collaborations amongst scholars of the popular.
We invite a broad, imaginative and interdisciplinary interpretation on the topic of ‘Victorian Encounters and Environments’ and its relation to any aspect of Victorian popular literature and culture which addresses literal or metaphorical representations of the theme. Inter- and multidisciplinary approaches are welcome, as are papers which address poetry, drama, global literature, non-fiction, visual arts, historical and social contexts. Papers addressing works from the “long Victorian period” (i.e. before 1837 and after 1901) are also welcome.
