VISTAS: 39th Annual Conference of the Nineteenth-Century Studies Association, March 15-18, 2018, Philadelphia, PA. In honor of the 100th anniversary of Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the NCSA committee invites proposals that explore the notion of the vista in the nineteenth century. From personal gardens to public parks, from the street level to the top of a skyscraper, or from the microscope to the panoramic photograph, the nineteenth century was a moment when the idea of the vista changed from a narrow sightline to a sweeping, expansive view. Send 250-word abstracts with one-page CV. Abstracts should include the author’s name, institutional affiliation, and paper title in the heading. Deadline: September 30, 2017.
