Tara MacDonald / University of Amsterdam

This conference seeks to assess the state of contemporary neo-Victorian literature, film, television and other media, with papers offering new readings of neo-Victorian texts. The conference also seeks to interrogate the critical field surrounding the notion of the neo-Victorian by asking how we, as scholars, understand this genre and its allied politics. Does the current cultural interest in the "new Victorian" imply a resistance to post-modernism, post-structuralism or post-humanism? Or, can neo-Victorianism help us interrogate these terms? How does our post-Victorian landscape accommodate and manipulate the neo-Victorian urge?

States of Emergency: New Iconographies and the Narratives of Catastrophe--ACLA Seminar, 2012; CFP Deadline November 15, 2011

Stephenie Young (Salem State University), Lisa Mulman (Salem State University)

Since WWII visual and written work documenting traumatic historical events in diverse geographic locations has emerged as one of the most prolific spaces of artistic production, yet still remains a relatively under-examined area of scholarly analysis. This is particularly true of comparative and interdisciplinary work. This seminar will focus on imaginative and testimonial narratives from sites of cultural or historical rupture/disruption/insurgence and the ways in which such narratives re- envision states of emergency as moments of artistic invention and/or transformation.
