Transcendentalism:  Men and Women Conversing

In a collaborative call from the Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Margaret Fuller and Louisa May Alcott Societies, we invite proposals for papers to be presented at the next Thoreau Gathering in Concord, MA (July 11-14, 2019) on dialogues between men and women of  the Transcendentalist movement.   When Emerson looked back at Transcendentalism, in “Historic Notes of Life and Letters in New England,” he recalled men and women who read adventurously, became friends, formed a club for conversation, and launched  a magazine.  They were talkers as well as solitaries.  Across the apparent divide of gender, what did they have to talk about?

Ancient Mayans saw a rabbit. Taoists saw a toad. Modern, western cultures saw a man’s face. Contemporary science sees clues to the origin of life on earth. 

Challenging Precarity

This proposed international seminar aims to respond to the current state of world affairs: notably, the inherent ontological vulnerability of life and the economic, socially-conditioned precariousness of individuals, societies and populations, which have been heightened since the 2008 financial crisis. Caused by an economic shift in the labour market and global neoliberal capitalism, precarity has been increasing due to world-wide inequality as “more extensive and less visible patterns of global dispossession” and “relatively unstable and dispersed conditions of deprivation and insecurity” gain ground (During 2015).

Conference Theme

In 2005, Jenny Rice suggested that we might move away from notions of rhetorical discourse as situated in a fixed place and time, with a specific aim and audience, towards an ecological view of rhetoric, where circulating texts transform rhetors, audiences, spaces, and events. Like biological ecologies, rhetorical ecologies are fluid rather than fixed, permeable rather than bounded. The Clemson University English Department invites graduate students from all disciplines to join us as we explore ecologies at the 2019 Margins Conference.
