“Reviving History: Contemporary Representations of “The Past” on Page, Stage, and Screen”

Guest edited special issue of The Apollonian: A Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies

Vol. 4 Issue 2 (June 2017)

Michael Kula, University of Washington, Tacoma

 

As our daily lives have grown more and more dominated by technology and by a corresponding fascination with the “new,” there’s been a counter movement interested in reexamining the ways of “the past.”  Whether it is handmade books, craft-made pickles, vintage automobiles, or handlebar mustaches, indeed the cliché often seems true now: what’s old is new again.

NeMLA​( Northeast Modern Language Association​)​​ 48th Annual Convention  ​March 23-26 in Baltimore, Maryland, Session title: 'Reader, I married him!': Investigating 19th-century Readers and Reading the 19th Century As Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre reminds us with her exclamation, “Reader, I married him!,” writers of fiction in the nineteenth century were very aware of their readership with texts. In the increasingly literate century, readers were savvy consumers, rapt fans, and scathing critics. They read penny papers, novels, and genre specific magazines. They read at home, in libraries, and on trains.

For many readers, the notion that Cold War or pre-9/11 postmodernist fiction is essentially the same as post-9/11 fiction is a problematic one. Such notable critics of postmodernist writing as Linda Hutcheon and Brian McHale have suggested as much, and a wide variety of recent work (Green, 2005; Toth and Brooks, 2007; Burn, 2008; Nealon, 2012; Holland, 2014; and so forth) by other figures has bolstered their assertions. Consequently, the nature of post-postmodernist fiction has become a topic of significant interest.

All Hail the Queen: Teaching Agatha Christie Beyond the Mystery Story

            In recent years, texts once dismissed as lowbrow (such as Stoker’s Dracula and Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories) have become staples in the university classroom. Despite worldwide fame as the Queen of Mystery, Agatha Christie too often appears as only a generic example of classic detective fiction.

            This is at odds with a recent surge of critical interest, beginning, perhaps, with Pierre Bayard’s work on The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. A recent edition of Clues (Vol. 34, No. 1) highlights current Christie scholarship and calls for irreverent re-readings, “teasing out the genuinely experimental and decidedly nonpatterned aspects of Christie’s writing” (Rolls and Guldal 8).

This panel will reconstruct, evoke and study the traumatic event of the Spanish Civil War, and its consequences in different ways. We also will explore current efforts in Spain to recover what is referred to as an “historical memory” of both the war and the Franco dictatorship, which followed it. We will analyze issues of trauma, exile, memory, identity and gender. Panel’s goal is to include voices silenced during the dictatorship and the democracy because of a lack of an historical memory law and a male dominated society.

Flash fiction is as old as Aesop’s fables, as recent as microfiction on blogs. But what works best in a limited space, who are some of the best practitioners of this brief form, and why? Is there an emerging praxis or theory for writing and teaching flash fiction as there once was for short stories? Any fresh angle on this subgenre is welcome, but preferably with an emphasis on analysis and technique and something intrinsic to the form, not just a reading of a particular short short story. 300-word abstracts, please, to https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/16145
