“I could conceive of another Abraham,” Kafka writes in a letter to a friend, “who was prepared to satisfy the demand for a sacrifice immediately, with the promptness of a waiter, but was unable to bring it off because he could not get away, being indispensable; the household needed him, there was perpetually something or other to put in order, the house was never ready; for without having his house ready, without having something to fall back on, he could not leave. This the Bible also realized, for it says: ‘He set his house in order.’”

To Render Visible: Ekphrastic Mirrors in American Literature

NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

In Ancient rhetorical theory, ekphrasis refers to the use of language to make an audience imagine a scene. However, the deeper function of ekphrasis, implicit in its descriptive use, is its rhetorical ability to call attention to features of a subject that may be invisible to the physical sense of sight—thus using the visible as a means of subtly exposing or revealing the invisible. The NeMLA session, “To Render Visible: Ekphrastic Mirrors in American Literature,” invites papers that explore how the chiasmic reflections of an ekphrasis reveal the interior subjectivity, ideology and the desire of its author.Please submit proposals to the official NeMLA website no later than 09/30/2018.

In 2015, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán justified building a border fence to prevent migrants from Asia and Africa from entering Hungary as necessary to preserve Europe “for Europeans.” East and Central European countries in general have become associated with extreme xenophobia and anti-immigrant policies following their acceptance into the European Union. Erased in current debates over these formerly communist countries’ “Europeanness” is a different history of geopolitical positioning, one where they ideologically aligned themselves not with Western Europe, but with anticolonial movements in Asia, Africa and Central and South America during the Cold War.

From Edward Lear’s owl-and-pussycat elopement, the Queen’s laughable rage in Wonderland, to the visual wit found in illustrations by Phiz and the Punch artists, the Victorian era was no stranger to delight and merry-making. In one sense, the Victorian era was a bastion of prudish puritanical “no nonsense,” of earnest rationalism in its documenting positivism and nascent naturalist sciences. In another sense, this historic moment also saw the flowering of imaginative merriment through the emergence of leisure time for working and bourgeois classes, which inspired a myriad of humorous and nonsense artistic forms to proliferate.

There are many ways in which humor manifests itself in Cuban and Cuban American literature and performance, and there are many reasons why. This humor, often referred to as choteo, frequently serves as more than mere comic relief and can express a criticism of a social, political, economic, and/or cultural concern both on the island and in the diaspora.
