We are so excited about the NCSA 2016 conference which is shaping up beautifully.  The hotel has added extra rooms to our block on Wednesday and Saturday, so if you had trouble recently getting conference rates on those days, please know that they are now available.  Please register as soon as you can and remember that if you register for the conference and the hotel by March 1, you will have a chance in the lottery for a marvelous suite upgrade at the Marriott.  Also, please do check the updated program to confirm your name, affiliation, and paper title, and let us know if there’s any needed correction (at ncsanebraska2016@gmail.com).  We are all very much looking forward to seeing everyone in April!

Attention NCSA Members

NCS Forum

Now that you've submitted your paper proposal for the upcoming conference in Lincoln, please consider writing a review for our online NCS forum. As we've done in the past, we’ve posted a list of possible review titles related to both our previous and our upcoming NCSA conference themes. If you are interested in reviewing a title to maintain momentum engaging with the topic of materiality, or if you want to start thinking about “the new,” check out http://english.selu.edu/ncs/online_reviews.php for guidelines and the review lists. Contact Jennifer Hayward (jhayward@wooster.edu) with ideas.

The Nineteenth Century on Film

Call for Reviews

  As scholars of the long nineteenth century, we benefit from a wealth of films about the people and places we study, from adaptations of novels to biographies of prominent figures, from exposés of crimes and scandals to epics treating historic events.  These films may present the era accurately or bring to life twentieth- and twenty-first-century misconceptions of the Romantic, Victorian, and Edwardian periods, anachronisms and all.  Like any interpretations of earlier historical periods, these films often tell us more about the moment of their creation than the nineteenth-century period in which their narratives take place.   

NCSA’s “The Nineteenth Century on Film” invites reviews and “think pieces” about cinematic representations of the long nineteenth century.  These might include new films currently in theatres, recent films from the past few years, or classic sound and pre-sound films from days gone by, whatever inspires thought and provokes conversation.  We invite writings, formal and informal, 900-1200 words, on a range of topics and approaches limited only by your imagination.  Below, you’ll find a few off-the-shelf lists of films set in the period.  If you’d like to compose something about any relevant film, please contact Arnold Anthony Schmidt at aschmidt@csustan.edu.
