The conference will focus on the dynamics of culture and its representations in the fields of Language, Linguistics, Literature and Translation.

Shapes of Futures

  

What is realised in my history is not the past definite of what was, since it is no more, or even the present perfect of what has been in what I am, but the future anterior of what I shall have been for what I am in the process of becoming.

Jacques Lacan

The past, like the future, is indefinite and exists only as a spectrum of possibilities.

Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 19, 2019

The “Shakespeare and Shakespearean Criticism” permanent section of the 2019 Midwest Modern Language Association invites proposals that engage with this year’s conference theme of “Duality, Doubles, and Doppelgangers.” Scholarship that explores issues of duality in Shakespeare’s literature, and in early modern culture broadly, from myriad perspectives will be considered.

Exploring doubling in Shakespeare’s works might begin with attention to any of the following list of topics:

· Duality of texts and paratexts

· Double-meanings (linguistics, semantics, multiple interpretations)

· Double entendre

· Twins, doubles in drama

· Doubled literary sources
