Pacific Ancient and Modern Languages Association

Academic archives and special collections are treasure troves for student engagement. These repositories contain tactile examples of institutional history that are instrumental for student research and inspirational for student creativity. Increasingly teaching faculty are collaborating with archivists and librarians in the promotion and use of these unique treasures. From these materials, students draw inspiration, often transforming the notion of what constitutes a book. Archives in turn may curate these works, documenting student research and properties for future generations. We invite presentations of work derived from or inspired by archival holdings and present strategies for encouraging similar artistic expression and curation.

Oxford Literary Review

This issue of the OLR (39:2) invites contributors to forge unexpected encounters between deconstruction, matter, and new and older materialisms—be they mechanical, historical, dialectical, speculative, textual, neurological, corporeal, cosmo-physical, or indeed "of the encounter." Guiding questions might include: how does deconstruction address the philosophy and politics of matter, materiality, and materialism? How might deconstruction articulate alternative accounts of materialism? In what ways might an attention to matter be itself already deconstructive, and what would be at stake in such a claim? How might attention to matter and materialism animate the politics of deconstruction?

The Splendor of the Real: Disrupting The Narrative Agency of Modernism

What is the central narrative agency of Modernism? Is it mind or matter? Or is it neither? Should we anchor Modernism in the elaboration of inwardness (as we may find it in Henry James, Ford Madox Ford, James Joyce)? Or does it lean upon an implicit appeal to the sovereignty of "indifferent" Nature (for instance, in Flaubert, Conrad or Virginia Woolf)? What if modernism were seen to actualize an even more estranged notion of the Real, one that is best captured under the heading of the "Copernican" Real in Alexandre Koyré's definition, later taken over by Jacques Lacan and Jean-Claude Milner?
