deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

For this approved roundtable for the NeMLA 2020 conference in Boston, MA, scholars from a broad range of American literary and cultural studies are invited to propose short papers that address a variety of approaches to gaze theory. The emphasis will be on current debates around gaze theory, contemporary applications of gaze theory to American literature and culture across historical periods, and new theoretical formulations of the gaze. It will engage such questions as whether gaze theory remains a viable way to think about representations of acts of seeing and being seen in texts and images, how gaze theory can help us understand shifting power dynamics in society at large, and whether one can ever supplant the gaze. Abstract and brief c.v. due Sept.

Novels of the Great War: A Reassessment

updated:

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This session attempts to examine novels of the Great War in light of over one-hundred years of reading, reflection, and criticism.  

We will use a broad notion of "novel":  novels written during and in the wake of World War I; novels written long after the war ended; and novels written today. 

 Furthermore, we welcome novels written from non-European writers and from authors from countries who did not participate in the Great War.  While the language of the conference is English, because this is primarily a comparative literature session, working directly in a language other than English is both permitted and welcomed.

The L.M. Montgomery Institute’s Fourteenth Biennial Conference

University of Prince Edward Island, 25-28 June 2020

“My fingers tingle to grasp a pen—my brain teems with plots. I've a score of fascinating dream characters I want to write about. Oh, if there only were not such a chasm between seeing a thing and getting it down on paper!” –Emily Climbs (1925)

“If for Montgomery Nature was eternal and eternally present, then the memory pictures of Nature reflected were perhaps meant to help her and her viewers to transcend time and, in entering the imaginative landscape, initiate generative seeing and fresh reverie.”
