CFP: [Victorian] 2009 MLA Special Session: "Victorian Poetry, Literary Form, and the Socialâ

Linda M. Shires

Abstracts are invited for a proposed special session at the 2009 MLA
Convention (to be held 27-30 December in Philadelphia). This session
seeks papers which explore aesthetics and cultural politics in Victorian
poetry. Because of its dense and complex linguistic experimentation and
structural ambiguity, Victorian poetry foregrounds the inseparability of
the epistemological and the discursive to the degree that it is
distinctive among cultural forms of the period and not merely one among
many. Varying theoretical accounts of both Romantic and Victorian poetic
form have been offered (for instance: Wolfson, Esterhammer, Armstrong,
Slinn). Still, despite this important earlier work, few Victorian

CFP: [Film] REMINDER: "Imagining Amsterdam" (last and final submission date: March 7, 2009)

updated: 
Tuesday, February 17, 2009 - 1:19pm
Marco de Waard

Amsterdam has always been a locus of powerful imagining, and for
centuries the city has been the subject of representation in literature,
music, and the visual arts. Yet while artists and writers have long
emphasised the city's reputation for permissiveness and tolerance, in
recent years the international image of Amsterdam as the paradigm of
an "open society" has been charged with new significance and urgency.
Against the backdrop of the "war on terror", an increasingly polarised
debate has taken place about multiculturalism and about new, global
challenges to our Western models of capitalist democracy. In this context
Amsterdam has emerged as a privileged site of representation which

Dr Rob Fisher

This inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary project seeks to investigate
and explore the enduring influence and imagery of monsters and the
monstrous on human culture throughout history. In particular, the project
will have a dual focus with the intention of examining specific ‘monsters’
as well as assessing the role, function and consequences of persons,
actions or events identified as ‘monstrous’. The history and contemporary
cultural influences of monsters and monstrous metaphors will also be examined.

Papers, reports, work-in-progress and workshops are invited on issues
related to any of the following themes:

Our society bombards us with deception: false reports, embellished

really being lied to? Or is the truth hiding underneath the deception, and
is it up to us to actively bring it to light?

We invite contributions from postgraduates across the disciplines in the
Arts and Humanities. Topic areas should reflect the interdisciplinary theme
of the conference. Suggestions may include (but are not limited to):
