INCS 2023: April 13-16, Knoxville, TN Nineteenth-Century Movement(s)

Call for Papers

Deadline: 7 October 2022

The nineteenth century was marked by accelerating movement(s): of peoples, commodities, ideas, technologies, and feelings. The period was characterized by the modernization of transportation, communication, and travel. Dance, theatre, sports, and literature flourished through new forms of physical movement that moved audiences in affectively novel ways. Political, social, and aesthetic movements reshaped culture and society. We welcome proposals on nineteenth-century movement and movements of all kinds.

INCS has a unique panel format to facilitate discussion and collaboration. Presenters pre-circulate written versions of their papers shortly before the conference and give 7-8 minute synopses during the panels, leaving ample time for dialogue and exchange. View the full call for papers here.

For paper proposals, upload a 200-word abstract and a one-page CV on this google form by 7 October 2022. For panel proposals, please provide a brief overview of the panel in an e-mail message and attach all paper proposals and CVs.
