Radicalism & Reform
The 41st Annual Conference
Nineteenth-Century Studies Association 
Rochester, New York
March 18-22, 2020 


CFP Deadline: October 14, 2019




Inspired by the history of radicalism and reform in Rochester, New York, the NCSA committee invites proposals exploring the radical possibilities of the nineteenth-century world. From the aftershocks of the French and American revolutions to mutinies and rebellion in colonies across the globe, the nineteenth century was a period of both unrest and possibility. Abolition, suffrage, and reform movements reshaped prisons, education, and housing, marking this century as a period of institutional making and unmaking: a reckoning with ills of the past that was also profoundly optimistic about a more just and prosperous future. 


Conference Funding: 1) Student Travel Grant, 2) International Travel Grant, 3) Faculty Development Travel Award. Click here to visit the NCSA website for additional requirements and due dates.
