This special issue will focus on ideas of reuse and recombination. How were bits and scraps of materials, textual and otherwise, reassembled into new forms in the nineteenth century? To what ends? Essays might consider these issues in relation to images, fabrics, texts, and more. Possible topics could include scrapbooks, patchwork, quotation, citation, illustration, and any and all forms of recombination. Approaches from all disciplines, including literature, art history, history, music, and the history of science and the social sciences, are welcome, as are submissions that cross national boundaries and/or range across the nineteenth century.

Nineteenth-Century Workshop 2018
War / After War: Memory, Fear, Indifference
Rutgers University; New Brunswick, NJ
War as memory. The fear of war. War as experience. How does culture mark its relationship to organized violent conflict?
In 2018, Rutgers’ Nineteenth Century Workshop will address the long-lasting effects of war on nineteenth-century literature and culture. It is a topic we take to be both urgent and of particular scholarly interest to students of the era.
Emmanuel Levinas writes extensively about the temptations of knowledge and the seductions of intelligibility and intentional consciousness as they enable a fascination for ontology, power, and war. For nearly 13 years, the North American Levinas Society has worked to preserve and focus this critique through social apertures that privilege questions of historical violence, transgenerational suffering, memory and repair.

“When the white men entered the camp, all the Inuit were inside one of the igloos; they started hearing people outside… Then a woman went out to see them. She comes back very shaky and says, ‘They’re not Inuit; they’re not human.’
The Centre for Textual Studies at De Montfort University in Leicester, England, is running a three-day international conference to showcase and explore the latest methods for analyzing literary and historical texts using computers. A particular focus will be the ways in which literary and historical scholarship will turn increasingly algorithmic in the future as we invent wholly new kinds of questions to ask of our texts because we have wholly new ways to investigate them. The conference will bring together, and put into fruitful dialogue, scholars using traditional literary and historical methods and those exploring and inventing new computational methods, to their mutual benefit.

The Parish Review: The Journal of the International Flann O’Brien Society 4.2
In her still influential Fantasy and Mimesis: Responses to Reality in Western Literature (1984), Kathryn Hume defines the literary fantastic as any departure from consensus reality, believing that it holds an equally significant position in literary history as mimesis. Rather than being a recent and sometimes academically marginalized genre, fantasy, for Hume, is integral to almost all literature.
