We are inviting essays for a proposed collection tentatively titled The Critic as Amateur, with strong interest from Oxford UP. The collection will focus on literary criticism as an activity suspended (productively) between expertise and amateurism.  It will explore the idea of the critic of literature as an amateur rather than an expert, or conversely, it will consider the role of expertise in literary criticism. Individual contributions might touch on figures who have written on literature without credentials/certification, academic or otherwise, or institutional affiliations. They might also address academics who have successfully assumed "amateur" roles while writing or speaking in the public domain.

"Pushing Back: Feminist Readings as Resistance"

Parlour: A Journal of Literary Criticism and Analysis
contact email: 
deadline: 
Monday, August 1, 2016

The upcoming issue of Parlour will concentrate on women as producers and consumers of texts with an emphasis on counter-intuitive feminist interpretations. We invite submissions that explore a wide range of approaches to the issue's theme and its attendant connotations of defiance, opposition, direct action, and rebellion.

We seek in particular articles that engage with queer feminism, antisocial feminism, Halberstam's notions of shadow feminism and the wild, and deeply intersectional feminism in order to read literary texts. Similarly, we encourage submissions that provide bold takes on works, authors, or characters that appear to be inimical to feminist inquiry—the more oblique the angle, the more surprising the application, the better.

Tragedy and American Drama and Theater: Genre, Mediality, and Ethics - International Conference, June 1 - 3, 2017

Confirmed keynote speakers:

Tragedy as a dramatic genre, theatrical practice, and mode of affect is defined by its longevity and rich tradition and has developed into an extraordinarily dynamic genre, firstly as a mode of narration, secondly as a phenomenon of transition and transformation between text and embodied performance that implies the crossing of medial boundaries, and thirdly in a transnational sense that implies the crossing of geographical borders.

Drinking from the River of Mnemosyne: Memoir, Truth, and Rhetoric

The modern concept of the memoir has a complex relationship with traditions of art, history, memory, rhetoric, and even ethics.  Memoir is usually distinguished from autobiography by its inclusion of reflection—the examination of a life that borrows techniques from fiction to render its story interesting. Generically, it is often classified as ‘Creative Non-fiction,” a categorization that seems unwilling to confront the divide between fiction and non-fiction.  That reluctance, however, may recall a more classical interpretation of truth, fiction, memory, and history.
