Conference organisers are delighted to announce their receipt of funding from the British Association of Victorian Studies (BAVS) to cover the registration fees of ten postgraduate students.
How to apply: Home and International postgraduate students interested in presenting research at VPFA 2014 may apply for funding to cover the £30 registration fee by emailing organisers at firstname.lastname@example.org explaining (in fewer than 200 words) why you would like to attend the conference and how the topic of Victorian Treasures and Trash relates to your research. Please attach your conference proposal.
Application deadline: Friday 4th April 2014
Are you a postgraduate interested in attending VPFA 2014 but not ready to present your research? Priority will be given to postgraduate speakers, though if applicants can sufficiently show how the conference is relevant to their studies the organisers will also consider their application.
All delegates must also be VPFA members.
Building on VPFA’s fantastic achievements, at this year’s conference, Anna Brecke and Janine Hatter are launching the ‘Mary Elizabeth Braddon Association’. Braddon is now a staple author of sensation fiction, but as recent scholarship is demonstrating, her vast and versatile oeuvre is still under appreciated. The ‘Mary Elizabeth Braddon Association’ aims to consolidate Braddon’s recognition in Nineteenth Century studies by offering a central platform for Braddon studies. The Association will provide a forum for discussing Braddon issues; collate information on Braddon’s life and works; and identify and promote Braddon scholarship. To help launch this Association, VPFA will hold a meeting to discuss the Association’s aims and objectives at the conference, which will then feed into the next Study Day.
