Welcome to NAVSA 2014!
We look forward to seeing you in London, Ontario, Canada.
Our conference theme this year is “Victorian Classes & Classifications.” Our keynote speakers will be Gillian Beer (King Edward VII Professor of English Literature Emeritus, Cambridge), and Tim Barringer (Paul Mellon Professor of the History of Art, Yale). Other notable events include six seminar panels led by distinguished scholars on topics related to the conference theme, one of which will be co-hosted by the Rotman Institute of Philosophy, and six network lunches, each organized around issues related to the professionalization of graduate students.
We will also host a roundtable discussion featuring the winner of this year’s NAVSA Book Prize. The conference will conclude with a banquet on Saturday, November 15, at which the Donald Gray Prize for the best scholarly article in Victorian Studies published in an academic journal will be presented. The banquet will be held in the Great Hall at Western University.
