[EXTENSION TO JULY 15] Pastoral Cities

updated: 
Monday, June 30, 2014 - 4:48pm
full name / name of organization: 
Midwest Modern Language Association

In his study Pastoral Cities (1987), James L. Machor gives the name "urban-pastoral" to a cultural myth of rural-urban synthesis, which he deems foundational to the moral geography of American life, from the Puritans' "City on a Hill" to Frederick Law Olmsted's "City Beautiful". To recognize and complicate this rural-urban dream, Machor argues, was one of the achievements of American writers through the nineteenth century. And yet, despite the recent pastoral turn in literary scholarship, few critics have analyzed urban-pastoralism in later or less canonical works.

Beyond Recovery: Women in the Arts (Aphra Behn Society panel #2 at ASECS 2015)

Aphra Behn Society for Women in the Arts, 1660-1830
contact email: 

In recent decades, much important scholarship has been done to make available women's writing for evaluation and examination. Aphra Behn, Eliza Haywood, Charlotte Lennox, and Sarah Fielding have become major figures within our discussions of the period. These developments have been further enhanced by new technological advances extending access to the archive of women's writing. Accordingly, our understanding of women's writing and its role within the world of eighteenth-century publication has become complicated in rich and important ways. For contemporary scholars, the wealth of materials now available through technologies such as digital archives and on-line journals offers a view of the period unprecedented in its breadth, depth, and diversity.

Collaborations: Women in the Arts (Aphra Behn Society panel #1 at ASECS 2015)

Aphra Behn Society for Women in the Arts, 1660-1830
contact email: 

This panel seeks to investigate the degree to which eighteenth-century women may have found collaborative work particularly fruitful. During most of the eighteenth century, copyright was still in flux and of benefit mainly to booksellers. Although in the middle of the century, Edward Young put forth an idea of the individual author and his original work, it was Goethe, Wordsworth and Coleridge who turned this notion into something of a manifesto. Before this, people such as Samuel Johnson and George Friderich Handel easily worked collaboratively. How do women of the period interact with the discourse on collaboration? Papers might address women's involvement with the question of collaboration and copyright.
