James Fenimore Cooper’s Cultural Dialogues

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 10, 2020

Throughout James Fenimore Cooper’s prolific writing career, his novels and non-fictional works have engaged with and revealed the complicated cultural dialogues of Antebellum America. Rich in multicultural and racial exchanges, his works, from the sea and frontier novels to his travel writing and political narratives, give readers a broad view of the many layered cultural contacts of the period, revealing a nation in continual ethnic, racial, and social interchanges. We invite papers that explore the works of James Fenimore Cooper from the perspective of cultural exchange broadly defined.

Whether they take place during abroad programs or locally, experiential learning projects add an element of authenticity and unpredictability that is especially important and often missing from conventional language learning courses. However, despite our ongoing efforts to teach language and culture in innovative and exciting ways, these experiences outside of the classroom often rely on clichés and stereotypes that are no more enriching than the cultural content found in the average industrial textbook.

Shakespeare and Dance

Dance is a prevalent art form in early modern culture, and an established part of Shakespeare’s oeuvre. From masques to interludes to comedy endings to courtly entertainments and weddings: dancing is frequently seen as a cross-class and cross-generic form of entertainment. From the early modern period onward, Shakespeare’s poetry and plays have been adapted into different art forms, including dance and music, which offer their own expressive repertoire to interpret Shakespeare’s works.

Despite our constant unraveling, humans are bound to each other and are continually finding ways of becoming entangled with one another. Our platonic, romantic, and paternal bonds of love cause us to belong to each other. This fierce intimacy has the potential to stretch physical, emotional, and spiritual boundaries.

 

How do humans currently become entangled with each other? How do we love each other? Hate each other? Cooperate with one another? What connections are condemned and stigmatized? Should they be? How do our shared experiences enhance our individual perceptions?

Spirituality recognises that there is more to reality than just the material world. The intuition that our lives have meaning and are part of something bigger is a powerful motivator for us to cultivate our spiritual side. The mystical experiences and beliefs that arise from this engagement can stimulate our imagination in unexpected ways. Feelings of transcendence and awe have inspired creative people, artists, writers and composers throughout the ages, and continue to influence cultures around the world. Spirituality has certainly not gone away in a hyper-connected age, but finds new modes of expression and practice.
