Revisiting the Elegy: Mourning and Resistance
“And there is pause, a breathspace in the strife;/A spirit brave has passed beyond the mists/And vapors that obscure the sun of life./And
Ethiopia, with bosom torn,/Laments the passing of her noblest born.”
Repasting the Elegy: Public Mourning
For this panel, we seek poets working in the elegy form. More specifically, we seek works of contemporary elegy that challenge the foundational components of the historic elegy. The panel will explore the use of the elegy as praxis for protest, whether by vocalizing unheard voices or advocating social justice issues. How do you mediate between personal and public lamentations as a form of protest? How do you challenge the historical foundations of the elegy to account for recent political events and personal reactions to them?

For a special issue of Shakespeare: A Journal marking the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx, we are inviting submissions of papers related to the issue's central topic of investigating Marx's impact, in a broad sense, on Shakespeare studies, either by exemplifying it in your own way or by commenting directly on it. Reference to the situation in our contemporary world as part of the overall argument would be welcome as well. We are also looking for papers that investigate Shakespeare’s influence on Karl Marx and the development of his writings.
The proposed length for this is 6000 words, and the journal requires double-blind peer evaluation. We expect a strong issue.
