deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 2, 2018

This panel of the 32nd Medieval-Renaissance Conference (UVA-Wise, Sept. 13-15, 2018) invites papers on medieval and early modern villains and the dynamic ethical codes assigned them by authors, audiences, and critics. By villains we mean criminals, tricksters (such as professional beggers), political careerists, or poets and their characters, charismatic or not. Some viable threads: villains as likable (anti-)heroes; villains as reflections of med-ren political and social audiences; the vices, virtues, and skills of villains; the ethical implications their very existence conjures. Submit abstracts to Sherif Abdelkarim at sa2je@virginia.edu. Deadline July 2, 2018.

Contemporaneity: Historical Presence in Visual CultureCFP, Edition 8: “Yesterday’s Contemporaneity: Finding Temporality In The Past”  In recent decades art historians across the discipline have offered new insights into how communities in the global past understood their own positions in time. For example, Marvin Trachtenberg has made the case that twelfth- and thirteenth-century European architecture articulated a form of medieval modernism. Conversely Paul Binski has argued for how the same material could be understood as not only innovative, but also firmly historicist in nature.

Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Editors Tony Perrello and C. Anne Engert welcome proposals for individual and co-authored chapters for a volume entitled Renaissance Literature and Modern Sociopolitical Applications: Leadership, Power, and Literary Legacies. We are in the process of assembling a collection of essays that explores the current American crises of leadership through the dramatic literature of the English Renaissance or vice versa. We believe that many of our colleagues are already talking about the intersection between these two topics, and we envision this edited volume as an opportunity to further such exploration in a scholarly venue. Palgrave MacMillan has shown interest in the project, which we aim to complete by March of 2019.

Eliot scholars might look askance at the idea that his poetic vision was at any point influenced by psychoanalysis.  Just two months before The Waste Land was published, after all, he ridiculed psychoanalysis as “a dubious and contentious branch of science” and predicted an imminent demise for what he dubbed the “psychoanalytic type” of novel.  Still, there is plenty to suggest his appreciation for the literary critical and poetic powers enabled by psychoanalysis.  The Waste Land was first published in the Criterion’s inaugural issue, and as editor of the journal Eliot also included a review by Hesse identifying Freud as a major influence on German poetry and declaring his “psychology of the unconscious” a good foundation for ar

The Future of the Medieval Book

Sunday, April 15, 2018

What is the future of medieval manuscripts? Scholars have for decades been interested in the history of their production and the social environments, institutions, and mechanics of their production; these concerns have constituted what we all consider the “history” of the book. Yet, how do we imagine our futures of conserving and interacting with these materials? Much like monks who spent hours consuming their texts through the practice of lectio divina, we now also consume these materials in the act of studying them. Only, holy reading positioned the reader to focus on his present, where we interact with old books to discover as much as we can about their past.

If the first major waves of popular interest in, philanthropic funding of, and scholarship on contemporary Jewish music and songwriters in the U.S. have finally receded, they've left a treasure in their wake. From Orthodox popular music and chazzanut, to jazz masters of the 1930s, to hipster oddities of the “new Jewish music” scene, to gypsy-punk klezmer cabaret bands and the Jewish identified art of Leonard Cohen and John Zorn, today’s audiences have access to a wealth of Jew-ish sounds and entertainments.
