>I am seeking abstracts for essays to be included in a proposed 
>collection on the topic of Victorian transformations. I wish to 
>construe this topic fairly generously at this stage, but I will 
>particularly value abstracts which look at form, its alterations, 
>and the effect of those alterations on culture, psychology, 
>literature, etc. For instance, papers might examine evolution's 
>threat to the notion of the human form as fixed and perfected or 
>offer explanations for the nineteenth century's fascination with the 
>deformed or explore the artistic theories leading Victorian writers 
>to create and revise literary forms. Cambridge Scholars Press has 
>solicited a proposal for this collection, and I will also send the 
>proposal to other scholarly presses. Abstracts should be one to two 
>pages long. Articles will likely range from fifteen to twenty pages 
>in length. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
>
>Monstrosity, deformation, shape shifting
>Constructing, reconstructing, deconstructing notions of identity
>Cultural, political, literary or generic sea changes
>Victorian rereadings, revisions or responses to literary forms
>Moments of intense change: birth, illness, death, etc.
>Transformative powers of art, religion, love, etc.
>Mutability
