Meeting Description:

William Gladstone, Victorianism and Nationalism in Historical and Literary
Perspective 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 and South Africa. At the same time he was a scholar and author,
whose vast intellectual interests ranged from the Homeric epic to Tennyson's

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

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: genovnbu.bg, by July 31, 2009.
