Dr. Mustafa Presents Paper at Victorian Studies Conference

Published: March 8, 2022.

Dr. Jamil Mustafa, professor of English Studies and director of Literature and Language, presented a paper at “Unsettling Victorians,” the annual North American Victorian Studies Association (NAVSA) conference, on March 3.

“Queer Orientalism: Arthur Conan Doyle’s Gothic Fiction” demonstrates how the author’s stories depict Englishmen who are queered and made nervous by encountering the East, and how late-Victorian constructions of sexuality and nervous disorders engage both Gothic fiction and Orientalism.

“Unsettling Victorians” focused on settler and colonial identities, cultures, environments, structures, and assumptions during the nineteenth century. Established in 2002, NAVSA provides a continental forum for scholars of the Victorian period.
