“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

It's the Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies association and it's happening next year. I suggest very strongly that you get it together and send us a paper. It's going to be amazing. We haven't yet unwrapped the theme but oh boy. Lynn Voskiul, Helena Michie, numerous excellent scholars and me.
