The death of a lover, child, spouse, partner, parent, friend is the loss of someone unique and irreplaceable – a presence in our lives never to be seen, held, heard or felt again. The tragic loss of familiar, iconic, well loved public figures and celebrities, the unexpected deaths of people through murder, violence or terrorism, heart rending loss through illness, disease or natural disasters all remind us of the fragility and vulnerability of our lives. In times like these music is often our companion providing comfort in the incomprehensibility of loss.

Socialist Side of World Literature

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 23, 2019

This proposal invites scholars to address the connection between Socialist Realism(s) and world literatures within and beyond the Soviet Union and the Cold War. As I. Anisimov stated in 1959 that, in the period following the October Revolution, the leading talents of world literature came to the side of the Socialist Revolution, since Socialist literatures associated with the new reality were rapidly developing not only in the Socialist world, but also in the capitalist world, where the best part of literature has joined battle to change reality. However, in the past decades the Socialist side of World Literature has not gotten the proper attention in World Literature studies.

Nineteenth-Century Formations

The University of Hong Kong

December 6-7

 

This interdisciplinary conference asks participants to rethink the nineteenth century and its social, aesthetic, and discursive formations. It brings together scholars from a variety of disciplines to consider the categories that inform and shape our various disciplinary approaches to the nineteenth century. In doing so, it invokes the term “formations” in a broad sense, to convey the processes by which concepts, categories, structures, systems, and institutions—many of which remain in place today—came into existence during this period.

Kalamazoo ICMS 2020: Medieval Representations of Scholarly Labor

updated: 
Monday, August 5, 2019 - 12:06pm
Program in Medieval Studies at Yale University
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 10, 2019

From the Codex Amiatinus’s depiction of Ezra writing in a book to that of Hildegard of Bingen receiving and dictating her supernatural visions in the frontispiece to the Scivias, interest in representing the labors of scholars spanned the length of the Middle Ages. Not only do depictions of scholarly labor such as these, whether visual or textual, shed light onto the material culture and historical practices of medieval scholarship, but they also reveal the ways in which medieval artists and writers sought to convey ideas about the work that they themselves performed and the functions they served in society.

Kalamazoo ICMS 2020: Migration, Exile, Displacement (roundtable)

Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Medieval refugees’ stories can be difficult to access, but our own encounters with contemporary refugee crises may hint at the disruption that accompanied mass displacement in the Middle Ages. As millions across the globe continue to be uprooted, what can we learn about the experience of displacement in the medieval world? Persecution, war, plague, poverty, and other factors all contributed to forced migration and exile, as seen in the expulsions of Jews from England and France; the expulsion of Andalusi Muslims during Spain’s Reconquista; displacements caused by the Mongol invasions; and in the migration of peoples escaping the Black Death.

Kalamazoo ICMS 2020: Violating Sacred Space

updated: 
Monday, August 5, 2019 - 12:06pm
Program in Medieval Studies at Yale University
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Sacred space is, in part, defined by its possible violation, examples of which abound in the Middle Ages. The martyrdom of Saint Nicaise, killed in his church by Vandals, is preserved in narrative and art. In Bokenham’s “Life of Saint Margaret,” the saint complains that her relics have been abandoned in churches destroyed by conflict and neglect. Legal sources also betray anxiety about the instability of sacred space: several sources note that damaging church property was an excommunicable sin, while Gratian’s decretals dictate the reconsecration of churches desecrated by bodily fluids.

Gothic Studies Special Issue CFP – Tales of Terror: Gothic and the Short Form

updated: 
Monday, August 5, 2019 - 11:59am
Gothic Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 12, 2019

Tales, fables, fragments, sketches, and other short literary forms have comprised the fabric of scary stories told and re-told, adapted, transformed, appropriated and re-appropriated. Undoubtedly, much of their debt is owed to the oral yarn, the fireside tale, the urban legend, and many have, and remain, connected to a diverse and rich visual culture. The fragmented literary form integral to the early Gothic novel and played with by the Romantics is inspired by and influences other forms: the narrative painting or illustration capturing a scene, a moment; architectural ruins both physical and imaginary which simultaneously encapsulate a moment and a history.

CFP (SCMS 2020) Screening Ourselves: Mediation, Exemplars of Difference, and Cultural Transformation

Digital media proliferates, in part, because it allows individuals to adopt, inhabit, revise, and project their ways of being. Liking, saving, and sharing digital objects shapes our personal and social lives, and has transformed what it means to see and be seen, to garner and wield cultural influence. By self-reflexively mediating ourselves in cultural artifacts, what political claims are we adopting about how the world is, or should be? Which lives are screenable, or screened?

NeMLA 2020–Cowboys and Capitalists: Mythic Figures of Masculinity in Nineteenth-Century American Literature

updated: 
Friday, August 2, 2019 - 6:17pm

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This NeMLA roundtable will engage the subject of masculinity in nineteenth-century American literature and culture, specifically through the landscape of two opposing mythic masculine figures: the American cowboy and the American capitalist. This session invites proposals that focus on either or both of these two critical representations of masculinity. How does the image of the cowboy and/or capitalist function in nineteenth-century American literature and culture and, more broadly, allow us to understand the complexities of masculinity and gender in nineteenth-century American society? Furthermore, how might we begin to trace these nineteenth-century cultural constructions in current conversations surrounding toxic masculinity in America?
