through quantitative means? How might texts be interpreted and interrogated through specific methods and

Transatlantic Gardens: Literary and Ecological Form in the Long 18th Century

updated: 
Monday, August 7, 2017 - 9:33am
Northeast Modern Language Association Convention (4/12-15/18)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Short form CFP:

This panel examines links between literary and ecological form across the Atlantic in the long eighteenth century. Formal experimentation is often taken as analogue for political critique, but in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, these critiques tend to be sited within specific locales.  What literary shifts are enabled or enforced by divergent ecological sites? What new perspectives on formal innovation become available when we view the plantation through the lens of the garden, and vice versa?

Send abstracts of 300 words to Kate McIntyre (krm2152@columbia.edu) and MC Hyland (mch454@nyu.edu) by September 30, 2017.

Subversive Homes: Domestic Spaces in English Women’s Writing 1640-1740 (NeMLA Pittsburgh, April 12-15, 2018)

updated: 
Friday, August 4, 2017 - 2:39pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Women have traditionally been associated with domestic spaces. This panel will examine the complexity of these places as a locus of intersection between various economic, religious, and social spaces. As Nicole Pohl points out in Women, Space and Utopia 1600-1800, “the house and home—seems in itself subdivided into areas that display social division or solidarity: ‘The household is a ‘sociogramm’ of a family but [also] of something much more.” This panel will investigate the “something much more” that is taking place in the domestic landscape of early modern women’s writing.
