CFP for Panel proposal for the Eleventh Biennial MESEA Conference Ethnicity and Kinship: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Family, Community, and Difference, May 30 – June 2, 2018, University of Graz, Austria: “Family Networks in Jewish Graphic Narratives”
In the very first issue of Comparative Literature René Wellek challenges A. O. Lovejoy’s insistence that the explanatory power of traditional periodization has been exhausted. In the pages of PMLA, Lovejoy had advocated that literary critics think in terms of “Romanticisms” in the plural rather than “Romanticism” in the singular. “I propose to show,” Wellek counters, “that there is no basis for this extreme nominalism, that the major romantic movements form a unity of theories, philosophies, and style, and that these, in turn, form a coherent group of ideas each of which implicates the other.” Nearly seventy years later, the question of periodization has become central to literary studies once again.
African American Review is seeking submissions for a special issue devoted to the work of Percival Everett and coedited by Anthony Stewart and Joe Weixlmann.
