American Literature Association Conference, May 24-27, 2018 (San Francisco): “Stevens’ Americana”

updated:

Wallace Stevens Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 1, 2017

Robert Frost intended to insult Stevens’ poetry when he called it mere “bric-a-brac,” verses loaded with pretty ornaments of ultimately little concrete value beyond themselves. In the context of American studies, however, “bric-a-brac” (or “Americana,” in our national tradition) often appreciates in critical value over time. This panel proposes to look at items, objects, or elements of Americana in Stevens’ poetry, essays, letters, and/or life. It welcomes presentations that consider the way Stevens uses or abuses American artifacts or lore in his work, as well as those that establish links between Stevens and other writings, cultural products, or ephemera idealized as unique to (or representative of) the American experience.

Animal Print

DEADLINE EXTENDED: December 1, 2017

 

[T]o forge another word in the singular, at the same time close but radically foreign, a chimerical word that sounded as though it contravened the laws of the French language, l’animot.

Reframing Medieval Bodies

updated: 
Tuesday, November 14, 2017 - 1:17pm
35th Annual Meeting of the Illinois Medieval Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 1, 2017

Medievalists have long engaged in the study of the body, producing some of the most influential contributions to the “bodily turn” of the 1980s and 1990s. The multidisciplinary conference “Reframing Medieval Bodies” invites reflection on past scholarship in this area and elaboration of new approaches and methods. We invite papers from the full range of disciplines in medieval studies, exploring bodies in their physiological, symbolic, political, economic, and performative capacities. Papers that revisit "the body" in light of bioarchaeological research and the history of medicine are especially welcome, as are papers that engage recent research on disability, gender, and race.
