"William Gladstone, Victorioanism, and Nationalism in Historical and Literary Perspective"

CAS 30/03/2009

Conference dedicated to Gladstone Bicentenary

William Ewart Gladstone (1809-1898) was a most extraordinary figure in many respects. A potent symbol of the Victorian era, he was most unconventional and unorthodox Victorian. As national and world leader he left his impact on many sides of the life of the British society, from socio-economic and political system to university curricula, and on countries as distant as Bulgaria, South Africa and the United States. At the same time he was a scholar and author, whose vast intellectual interests ranged from the Homeric epics to Tennyson’s poetry.

The History Department of the New Bulgarian University and the Bulgarian Society for British Studies organize a conference to mark the Gladstone Bicentenary, to be held at the NBU on November 20-21, 2009.

Working languages: Bulgarian, English.

The panels at the conference will be centered on:

- Gladstone and Victorianism;
- European nationalism and self-determination;
- Language, and politics;
- The European concert and humanitarian intervention.

Proposals of papers with summaries (up to 200 words) should be sent to Assoc. Prof. Roumen Genov at: , by July 31, 2009.
