Deadline extended: Seminar: Literatures and/of Waste

Louisville Conference on Literature & Culture Since 1900
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 2, 2017

Themes of waste and waste management circulate in contemporary literature as demonstrated in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, the scatological poetry of A.R. Ammons, the collages of James Schuyler and Rachel Blau DuPlessis, and the language middens of Caroline Bergvall’s Drift. Collections like Jennifer Scappettone’s The Republic of Exit 43 also highlight the shared architecture of landfills and human bodies connected by waste, built environments, and literary corpuses. The purpose of the seminar is then twofold. First, this seminar invites participants to explore art, film, and literature through the lens of waste, waste management, and toxic materialism.

Deadline Extended: NeMLA 2018 Classics Today

Monday, October 2, 2017 - 9:53pm
Claire Sommers/The Graduate Center, CUNY
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 10, 2017

The art, history, literature, and philosophy of ancient Greece and Rome serve as the foundation of Western civilization. While the Classics have had a tremendous influence on subsequent cultures, the academy frequently keeps the discipline of Classics separate from modern literatures and languages. Yet the Classics have always been an integral part of cultural productions and the university itself; the word “academy” even has its origins in Plato. This roundtable will explore the current state of Classics scholarship, focusing on Classics as an area of study as well as its place in contemporary academia. Possible approaches include:
· Defining the Classics

· Current research trends in Classics scholarship

After a first meeting dedicated to Brazilian author Machado de Assis, the second “Symposium on Nineteenth-Century Literature” will be focusing on family as one of the most preeminent topics of nineteenth-century fiction, across different nationalities, cultures and authorial aesthetics. This broader scope will allow us to inquire into the role of family as a site of convergence and tension, where the concepts of individual and community, intimate and social, familiar and foreign are brought together both to meet and to challenge each other.
