C19: The Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists is the first academic organization dedicated to nineteenth-century American studies. We are pleased to announce that “Dissent,” the sixth biennial conference of C19, will be hosted by the University of Miami and Florida International University from April 2-5th, 2020.

We invite individual paper, panel, and roundtable proposals on literature and culture in and beyond the United States during the long nineteenth century. For more information, please visit our Call for Papers.

For our 2020 gathering, the C19 conference will also offer ten seminars that emphasize conversation and interactive dialogue as an alternative to traditional paper and roundtable formats. Seminars will be capped at 15 participants and will be run by facilitators with expertise in the topics. Each participant will submit a five-page position paper before the conference to be read in advance by the other participants so that seminar time can be reserved for discussion. Seminar participants will be listed in the program. For more information, please see the seminar descriptions.

We are pleased to be able to offer travel grants to offset the cost of attending the conference. To apply and learn more, please see the travel grant application.  You are also welcome to contribute to this fund.
