CFP: Third Panel Member for SCBS Conference (Gender/Sexuality)


Our names are Kimberly Kent and Megan Groninger and we are both graduate students at Florida State University. We are currently looking for a third member to complete our prospective panel for the SCBS this year (Birmingham, Nov. 9-10); tentatively titled: Private Agency, Public Lives. The primary goal of our panel is to explore the diverse ways that English women at every class level negotiated public and private agency in the 18th and 19th century; in part through a manipulation of spaces they themselves constructed. 

CFP: NACBS panel on lecture culture

I would like to put together a panel on British lecture culture for the NACBS (deadline 3/30).  My paper is on attempts (which ultimately failed) to form a national lecture web in the 1850s through the General Union of Literary, Scientific, and Mechanics' Institutes (founded by the Royal Society of Arts).  Papers on anything related to lectures, audience formation, education, or working/middle class culture would be welcome.  Please contact Anne Rodrick at  Thanks!
