The CUNY Annual Victorian Conference is happening next week, on Friday May 6th in New York. The theme is “Victorian Boyhood,” and at the risk of indulging in shameless self-promotion, I am putting up the program here on our blog. I’ll be speaking on “Tom Tulliver’s Schooldays,” and reading the schoolboy novel genre through a disability studies perspective. This is a great conference–one day long with everyone listening to the same papers, much like NVSA, and drawing scholars from the NYC area in a way that I imagine is similar to those one-day conferences in London where people are able to take the train in for the day. Wouldn’t it be nice if North America were smaller and we could go to more?
