Keynote: Ulrich Knoepflmacher, English, Princeton University.

Join us for the annual CUNY Victorian conference. Karen Bourrier (Boston), Oliver Buckton (Florida Atlantic), Kelly Hager (Simmons College), Jenny Holt (Meiji), Jongwoo Kim (Louisville), Claudia Nelson (Texas A & M), and Pamela Thurschwell (Sussex) will speak on the gendering of Victorian maleness. They will discuss its emergence through educational and familial norms, its enforcement and discipline through the institutions in which boys were trained, its accommodation or exclusion of homoerotic desires, and its construction in literature ranging from boys' adventure novels to elegiac poetry.
