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)

Monday, August 5, 2019 - 12:06pm
Program in Medieval Studies at Yale
deadline for submissions: 
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
Diana H. Polley, Professor of English/Southern New Hampshire University
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?

NeMLA 2020: Affect and Empathy: Holocaust Memory in Contemporary Narratives

updated: 
Friday, August 2, 2019 - 5:05pm
Cartina Hoppes / Harvard University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 25, 2019

This panel explores a variety of narrative strategies that authors employ in order to negotiate the ethical and epistemological problems raised by the events of the Holocaust. Taking a cue from the conference theme “Shaping and Sharing Identities,” this panel is organized around contemporary reflection on and representation of the Holocaust and its continued impact on the present historical moment. Alongside pronounced generational shifts and the steady disappearance of the witness generation, Holocaust narratives are increasingly shaped by digitalization, politicization, and globalization of Holocaust memory.

Somatexts: Tattoos as Technology, Bodies as Text

updated: 
Friday, August 2, 2019 - 4:04pm
Northeast Modern Language Association 51st Annual Convention (Boston, MA)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Whereas most people employ more temporary “sign vehicles” (Goffman 1959) such as haircuts, make-up, and clothing as forms of signification that can be revised in relation to cultural shifts, the relative permanence of tattoos as a technology of body modification complicates the mobility needed by tattooed bodies to negotiate their significatory space, even as such tattoos have the potential to “speak” multiple meanings across various modes of non-verbal transmission, or become the impetus for queer or non-normative kinship.

Irreverence toward the Canon - C19 2020 roundtable CFP

updated: 
Friday, August 2, 2019 - 11:14am
Sean Ash Gordon, University of Massachusetts Amherst
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, August 16, 2019

In a teaching evaluation for a survey course, a student complained of “irreverence toward the canon,” perhaps conflating “canon” with institutional authority and “proper” knowledge, and a lack of reverence with moral laxity or heresy. But we believe “irreverence toward the canon” should be a goal of our critical teaching and scholarship, not a flaw. How can we be more irreverent toward the canon?

NEW MATERIALIST APPROACHES TO SOUND CONFERENCE

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 14, 2019

https://music.columbia.edu/news/new-materialist-approaches-to-sound-conference-call-for-proposals

 

Scholars working under the broad umbrella of New Materialism have offered compelling reappraisals of the ways in which we know, interact with, and exist in the world. This scholarship also intersects with recent work on music and sound, which raises rich sets of questions regarding human agency, material, ethics, aesthetics, embodiment, and the subject/object dichotomy, among other issues.
