The tumult and transformations resulting from the Age of Revolutions (1770s-1840s) created a trans-Atlantic body of art and material culture that reflected and inspired new ideas and actions.  Inspired by Curious Revolutionaries: The Peales of Philadelphia, the American Philosophical Society’s 2017 exhibition on the legacy of the patriot portraitist Charles Willson Peale and his artistic family from the eighteenth century until the middle of the nineteenth, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art (PMA)’s forthcoming publication of The Art of the Peales: Adaptations and Innovations, along with a series of other Peale-centric events happening in Philadelphia, the APS and PMA will co-sponsor a scholarly conference on October 19-21, 2017 that exp

THE BURNEY SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA 2017 CONFERENCECALL FOR PAPERS "PLACING THE BURNEYS"                                                                     NOVEMBER 2-3, 2017, PITTSBURGH, PA 

The Burney family is strongly associated with various cities such as King's Lynn, London, Bath, Brighton, Paris. The family's many talents flourished in urban settings.
Geographical place mattered to the Burney family. But so did other placements: social, political, and class. Moreover, critical placement in Frances's time and in our own has been essential to crafting different versions of Burney.

Inspired by the Burney's ties to geography, the Burney Society of North America presents "Placing the Burneys."

MLA 2018 Special Session: Catholicism’s Gothic Legacy

updated: 
Saturday, March 11, 2017 - 4:38pm
Geremy Carnes
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This proposed MLA 2018 (January 4-7, NYC) session seeks papers that address the relationship between Catholicism and English Gothic literature in ways that move beyond simplistic observations of the genre’s use of anti-Catholic tropes. Especially welcome are papers that situate Gothic literature in the history of English Catholicism or which approach the religious content and contexts of Gothic literature from “post-secular” points of view. Papers might examine anything from 18th- and early 19th-century Catholicism’s influence on the rise of Gothic literature, to the lingering anti-Catholicism (or, conversely, Catholic nostalgia) in 21st-century Gothic literature and/or film, or anything in between.
