2013 VISAWUS Panel Proposal (3/12/2013; 11/14-16/2013)

Panel Proposal 

2013 VISAWUS conference: Victorian Modernities
Courtyard by Marriott, Portland City Center, Portland, Oregon USA
November 14-16, 2013

Among the scientific discoveries and emerging new disciplines that contributed to a palpable sense of Victorian modernity, some of the most intriguing involved new understandings of the physical basis of mind as discoveries were made about the structure and operation of the nervous system and the brain. This proposed panel seeks papers that investigate how the emergence of new understandings and interpretations of the mind/body relationship manifested in Victorian fiction. Those interested should email Genie Babb (gbabb001@plattsburgh.edu) and Judy DeTar (jsdetar@sbcglobal.net) by March 12.
