Two-Day Symposium to Launch GNCS
To celebrate the inaugural issue of Global Nineteenth-Century Studies (GNCS), the Society for Global Nineteenth-Century Studies (SGNCS) will host a two-day symposium on oceanic approaches to nineteenth-century culture, ecology, economics, history, and politics in a range of global contexts.
Intentionally broad in scope, the symposium seeks to cross-map nineteenth-century studies with key currents of the blue humanities, the Black and circum-Atlantic, Indian Ocean studies, oceanic ecologies, post- and decolonialism, maritime globalization, and beyond. We welcome participants from any discipline and at any stage of their scholarly career. Read the call for papers below and consider joining us in Los Angeles or at other sites around the world (details tba)
