CFP: [Renaissance] Maternity and Romance Narrative in the Renaissance (Venice, 8-10 April 2010)

Karen Bamford

Helen Hackett notes the "profoundly ambivalent attitude to the maternal"
in Shakespeare's last plays (_Women and Romance Fiction in the English
Renaissance_, 155). In spite of the associations of romance as a genre
with a female readership, such ambivalence to the maternal may
characterize the romance tradition more broadly. This panel will explore
aspects of the maternal in the romance narratives that ciruclated in
England and continental Europe in the Renaissance. Papers may consider
romance in any genre or guise.

CFP: [Cultural-Historical] MLA 2009: British Imperial Masculinities and Popular Culture

Keguro Macharia

While the last decades of the nineteenth century are widely understood as a
period of shifting contours in imperial constructions of gender and
sexuality, we wish to consider how the two world wars and decolonization
significantly alter the shape of British imperial masculinities in pop
culture. We are interested in popular culture constructions of late
imperial and post-imperial British masculinities (egs, Biggles, James Bond)
as they circulate in both colonial and metropolitan spaces. Both, how they
attempt to shore up masculinities, how the shored up, reconstituted
masculinities circulate within and attempt to shape post-imperial
relations, or alternatively, how they predict and prepare for its demise.

CFP: [Collections] Zoopoetics and the Politics of the Nonhuman in Middle Eastern and North African Literature

moneera Al-Ghadeer

Arguably, there is a gap in the analysis of animality in modern Arabic and North African literary
discussions while ironically animals are populating Arabic canonical tradition. The word hayawan,
‘animal’, invokes a number of classical Arabic texts and treaties. One may argue that Arabic
letters encompass a discursive literary and encyclopaedic genre that is devoted to exploring,
commenting on, or surveying sources on animals, ranging from Al-Jahiz, Al-Qazwini, Ibn
Qutayba, and Ikhwan al-Safa to Al-Damiri. More specifically, pre-Islamic and oral poetry’s
zoopoetics embody essential formulations about the primal identification with the animal, the
