Call for Papers: Northern Nineteenth-Century Network Colloquium, ‘Tradition(s)/Innovation(s)’, University of Cergy-Pontoise, Friday 8 April 2016

The long nineteenth century was a period of major changes in all the fields of political, economic, intellectual and artistic activities. The object of the 4th of our one-day events will be to reflect on the manifestations of the spirit of the Victorian age and the possible persistence of traditions which the more radical thinkers opposed.

20 minute-long papers will be considered on the following topics, though not exclusively:

  • Political reforms
  • Economic changes
  • Artistic innovations
  • Means of information and communication
  • Conditions of life and work
  • Education
  • Women’s condition
  • Urban expansion
  • Transports

Please send a 300 word proposal and a short biography by January 31st 2016 to the organizing committee:

Stéphane GUY (civilization) mel: stephane.guy@u-cergy.fr
Françoise Baillet (art) mel: francoise.baillet@u-cergy.fr
Odile Boucher Rivalain (literature): odile.boucher-rivalain@u-cergy.fr
