Teaching Romanticism--Romantic Textualities
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 31, 2017

In her 2014 A Cultural History of the Irish Novel, 1790-1829, Claire Connolly declares that a major aim is, and must be, ‘to restore seriousness and nuance to our understanding of the Irish fiction of the romantic period’, which her criticism seeks to achieve by ‘refus[ing] or at least redirect[ing] readings that treat the novels as so many failed efforts to contain the hectic world of early nineteenth-century Ireland’ (Connolly 1).

Principled Separatists: Representations of Withdrawal and Dissent in American Literature and Culture -- ASA 2017

Matthew Mosher
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 15, 2017

Non-guaranteed session for ASA (American Studies Association) 2017. From the hermit’s tales of the eighteenth century through the writings of transcendentalists in the nineteenth and expatriates in the twentieth (to name only a few), American writers and cultural producers have long represented separation from society as a form of political, social, and/or cultural dissent. This panel seeks to examine such representations with an eye toward their inherent ambiguities. To what degree and under what conditions can dissent, a form of oppositional political engagement, stem from what is ostensibly a strategy of disengagement—i.e., separation and withdrawal?

Gothic Afterlives: Radcliffe’s Literary Precursors, Rivals, and Descendants

(Proposed special session for the 2017 NASSR conference)

Since the mid-1990s, a number of studies have not only extended the years that “Romanticism” encompasses as a literary and cultural period but also suggested that classic gothic literature (1764-1824) holds a significant place within Romantic studies. Thanks to presses like Broadview and Valancourt, a host of classic gothic novels by Clara Reeve, Sophia Lee, Charlotte Smith, William Godwin, Regina Maria Roche, Charlotte Dacre, Percy Shelley, and others that were once out of print and available only in special collections are now easily accessible.

Modernist Studies Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 9, 2017

The history of modernist collage is a varied one. Futurism, influenced by Cubist techniques, turned to collage as a method for subverting traditional, representational artwork; Dada’s absurd arrangements of advertising images and print offered a scathing critique of capitalism; Surrealism’s bizarre juxtapositions sought to empower and stimulate the subconscious.
