Transatlantic Gardens: Literary and Ecological Form in the Long 18th Century

updated: 
Monday, August 7, 2017 - 9:33am
Northeast Modern Language Association Convention (4/12-15/18)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Short form CFP:

This panel examines links between literary and ecological form across the Atlantic in the long eighteenth century. Formal experimentation is often taken as analogue for political critique, but in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, these critiques tend to be sited within specific locales.  What literary shifts are enabled or enforced by divergent ecological sites? What new perspectives on formal innovation become available when we view the plantation through the lens of the garden, and vice versa?

Send abstracts of 300 words to Kate McIntyre (krm2152@columbia.edu) and MC Hyland (mch454@nyu.edu) by September 30, 2017.

 

Literature and Generation

The term ‘generation’ has played a formative role in literary histories of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries to articulate notions of evolution, rupture, and continuity. Its use is, however, not uncontested and has been the subject of intense scholarly scrutiny in literary studies and cultural memory studies over the last two decades. As Astrid Erll has noted, the concept of ‘generation’ is marked by two dimensions: generationality and genealogy. The first term indicates how generations define themselves or are defined on the basis of a shared ‘space of experience’ (Koselleck); the second term points at the relation generations maintain to what or who precedes them.

Locating "Poetry of Resistance": Poetry and the Politics of Space

updated: 
Friday, August 4, 2017 - 2:24pm
Northeast Modern Language Association Convention (4/12-15/18)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

SHORT FORM CFP:

This panel examines the relationship between the contemporary poetry community’s call for “poetry of resistance” and the particular locations or spaces that such poems represent. Papers may examine how particular locations or spaces define the language of resistance or how poetic resistance defines particular locations or spaces. How is resistance defined locally, globally, geographically, environmentally, or personally in poetry? And how does poetry define the relationship between resistance and location?

Octavia E. Butler: Uniting the Academy and the Community

Octavia E. Butler Literary Society
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 2, 2017

The fiction of Octavia E. Butler has fired the imaginations of academics and activists alike. Quite often, however, these communities are walled off from one another. Butler’s explorations of the environment, sexuality, race, politics, and many other topics have established her legacy as a revolutionary, and her influence cannot be contained by the traditional categories and boundaries in which knowledge is typically organized. Her work is too vital to be put into any kind of box. For our second biennial conference, the Octavia E.
