Transnational Humanity: The Invention of Human Rights through the
Nineteenth-Century Novel

This ACLA seminar will explore the transatlantic invention of human rights,
and the construction of the multivalent discourse of “humanity,” through
the nineteenth-century novel. Novels have participated in directing and
redirecting the discourse of the “human”â€"the human as closed system, as
biopolitical species-being unit, as rational individualâ€"by charting
interiorities that are deemed to constitute a “human.”

American Writers During Their Twilight Years: "Final" Works from
America's First Three Generations

This collection of essays will focus on the "final" or “late” works of
important American authorsâ€"authors whose major works were written in the
nineteenth century or the early twentieth century and whose life spans
and literary careers were long enough for the writers to have lived
through, at least, two major literary movements. The writers who
published in the twentieth century will be limited to authors who grew
up, from birth to early adulthood, in the nineteenth century.

CFP: [20th] ACLA 2009 Seminar: "Literary Journalism across Cultures"

updated: 
Saturday, October 4, 2008 - 1:20pm
Isabelle Meuret

Literary journalism emerged as a distinctive genre in the 1950s and 60s, at
a time when dramatic changes were shaping American society. As traditional
journalism no longer provided relevant tools to describe countercultural
realities, writers had to create new techniques to render this unique
zeitgeist. Although “American exceptionalism” (Boynton) is attached to the
genre, nonfiction writing is not a local phenomenon: there exists a
community of literary journalists across the globe. Are there distinct
specificities to be found in literary journalism worldwide? Can we
postulate the existence of an international canon? Or, is it dominated by
American writers?
