Call for Essays: Transatlantic Exchanges from the Anglo-American War to the
Emancipation Proclamation (c. 1783-1863)

A new and burgeoning field of interdisciplinary investigation,
transatlantic scholarship contextualizes its objects of study in relation
to exchanges, interactions, and negotiations that occurred between and
among authors and other artists hailing from both sides of the Atlantic. As
a result, transatlantic research calls into question established
disciplinary boundaries that have long functioned to segregate various
national or cultural literatures and art forms, challenging as well the
traditional academic emphasis upon periodization and canonization.

CFP: [International] Gothic Sensations - Sensational Gothic (09/10-12/09)

Gothic Sensations

Gothic Sensations â€" Sensational Gothic
University of Salford, UK, 10-12 September 2009

The recent (re)turn to the study of emotion in literary studies invites a
reconsideration of the Gothic as a mode that relies on the emotional
response of those who are confronted with the uncanny and who, as a
result, experience fear. The ways in which writers represent emotional
response and immediacy is central to understanding the Gothic as a force
that transcends and transmutes culturally enforced structures of (self-)
control and the fashioning of gender roles and stereotypes.
