CFP: [American] Oriental Shadows (SEA, March The Society of Early Americanists 6th Biennial Conference)

Jim Egan

The panel will explore the use of figures of the "East" or "Orient" in American writing before 1800.
>From Thomas Harriot's remarks on Persian silk to Anne Bradstreet's "Four Monarchies" to Cotton
Mather's frequent references to the Orient in his biblical commentaries to J. Hector St. John de
Crévecoeur’s invocation of “the emperor of China ploughing,” early American writers from a variety
of periods and ideological perspectives turned to figures of the East at important points in their
writing. Papers should explore images, descriptions, and/or references relating to the "East" and/or
"Orient"--both terms defined as broadly as one would likeâ€"in American writing before 1800.

Danna Voth

OMELS invites submissions for the following panel at the 44th
International Congress on Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo:

The Psychological Freight of Battle Exhortations

The common characteristics in medieval battle exhortations of expression
in negative terms and indirect address, which focus on the three spurs to
action of "don't run," "honor your country or ancestor," and "follow my
example" often create a conflict between physical action and language.
This panel seeks papers that explore the psychological freight which
fuels the complications among ethical ideals and representation in
medieval texts concerning battles.
