Breac: A Digital Journal of Irish Studies

We are delighted to announce the launch of a new, peer-reviewed global journal of Irish Studies later this fall.

The journal will be called Breac: A Digital Journal of Irish Studies. As some of you may know, breac is the Irish word for "trout" but also "speckled," and it is this latter sense of the word that we think particularly captures the spirit and themes of the journal. We are interested in thinking about Ireland's culture, history and literature in a global context with methodologies that are inter- and multidisciplinary. The journal will be entirely digital with a forum section that aims to cultivate an open, global conversation about the published articles.

The Cognitive Turn in Contemporary American Literature (NEMLA 2013)

Saturday, September 15, 2012 - 1:19pm
NEMLA 2013

This panel will explore the 'cognitive turn' in literary studies as it emerges in contemporary American fiction and non-fiction. Since George H. W. Bush declared the 1990's the "decade of the brain," there has been a surge of cross-disciplinary work done at the site of cognitive studies, neuroscience and the humanities. For example, scholars such as Lisa Zunshine and Paul John Eakin have called for literary methodologies that account for cognition and perception in their analyses. Additionally, a growing number of fiction and non-fiction texts use cognitive studies and neuroscientific research to upend generic constraints, as well as challenge assumptions about how we construct, perceive, and describe the world and ourselves within it.

Robert Lowell Unbound

NEMLA 2013 at Tufts University

This panel will explore aspects of Robert Lowell's poetry that may be repressed in analyses of his work that "bind" Lowell to terms of tradition or to biography, as key aspects of Lowell's work from Life Studies (1959) on may be repressed in such analyses, reasonable as they may be. But often unconsidered in such analyses are Lowell's antitraditional stylistic and formal features, as well as ways that Lowell's identities within his verse may be shaped by fantasy rather than being reflections of literal biography.
