Sunday, March 15, 2020

At a time when a medieval and early modern understanding of literary authority had given way and a concept of intellectual property had not yet been solidly established, eighteenth-century Europe saw a surge of activity involving translation and appropriation of materials produced by others. As well as authors who freely borrowed from the past and present within their own cultures and languages, there was special interest in the translation and appropriation of materials drawn from other cultures and reinterpreted for European audiences.

The Science of Sex "Itself"

Monday, June 1, 2020

Over the past two decades, queer, transgender, and sexuality studies have moved away from the medical model, turning away, as Regina Kunzel puts it, “from the clinic, the couch, and the psychiatric hospital to look instead at histories of sociality, of citizenship, community, culture, politics, the state.” In this special issue, however, we want to return to the sciences of sex, including and beyond the couch, to consider how the surveying and hierarchizing energies of “science” have been put toward the production of understandings of both sexual practice and binary sexual difference, in all of their gendered and racialized dimensions.

The Great War and Streets (MSA Brooklyn 2020)

Monday, February 10, 2020 - 4:01pm

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 6, 2020

This panel invites paper proposals that deal with modernism, the Great War, and streets broadly conceived. The Great War was a pivotal event in the development of modernism, and many of our key literary works - The Waste Land, Mrs. Dalloway, Parade’s End - respond in part to the pressures of the war. This influence extends beyond the traditional English modernist canon as well, to writers such as Mulk Raj Anand and Tayeb Salih.

The relationship between the sciences and the humanities is one that is currently marked by tension. Often viewed as distinct in their approaches to collecting and creating data, the two fields rarely come together to combine methodologies and form what could be a powerful symbiosis of qualitative and quantitative research. For our 18th annual conference, the English Graduate Student Organization is especially interested in exploring the past, present, and future relationships between STEM and the humanities.
