Victorians in motion

VISAWUS, the Victorian Interdisciplinary Studies Association of the Western United States is holding its annual meeting 25-27 October 2007 in Boulder, Colorado, USA. The theme of the meeting this year is “Victorians in Motion”, and there is a call for papers whose broad range of topics includes not just travel and transportation but “vicarious motion: moving panoramas and other technologies that simulated travel”, “representing mobility” and “performative motion”, each of which seem to offer promise to someone interested in the motion picture in all its many forms in the nineteenth century. Proposals are invited for twenty-minute papers, deadline 8 May 2007.
