The Midwest Victorian Studies Association has extended the deadline to submit proposals to our 2022 conference to February 15.

MVSA is excited to hold a vibrant, in-person conference in May 2022 if conditions allow. Safety remains our top priority. The conference will have multiple COVID safety measures in place, including a vaccine requirement for in-person registration, and confining the conference to a private venue as much as possible. If public health conditions have not improved from their current state by March 15, the MVSA leadership will postpone the conference until Spring 2023 and notify participants immediately. All papers accepted for this year’s conference will automatically be included on the 2023 program, and we will offer instead some form of collaborative online programming.

Please consider submitting a proposal for this year’s conference, inspired around the theme of Sonorities and Stained Glass: Aestheticism, Sensation, and the Arts of Sensing in Victorian Britain, to be held in Richmond, Indiana on May 6-8, 2022. Please see our conference website for the full CFP and stay tuned for more details. For individual papers or panels, send a 300-word abstract and 1-page vita for each participant to

We invite you to follow MVSA on Facebook and Twitter so that you can keep track of events and discussions of interest to our members.

We hope to see many of you and your colleagues in Richmond in the spring. Please help us spread the word!

Best wishes,

Bill Meier
