Call for paper: Aletria v. 28, n.3 (2018) – Early Modern English Literature

Early modern English authors (c. 1453-1789) wrote in a period of unprecedented national and international political, cultural, social, religious, and scientific changes. Literature in English across a range of traditional and alternative genres reflected, resisted, and redefined these developments. We invite papers that identify and analyse the many forms of evidence of the literary engagement with transformative issues, events, and axes within and outside of the British Isles.

Editors of the number: Elizabeth Sauer (Brock University, Canada) and Luiz Fernando Ferreira Sá (UFMG)

Before social welfare could exist, it needed to be imagined.

The epoch when the full establishment of the concept of the welfare state in the U.K. and other European countries occurred, 1890-1948, indeed coincides with the phenomenon of European Modernism, conceived here not just as an aesthetic, but as a socio-political phenomenon of visionary reform. The dazzling achievements of the 1890s-1940s interms of modernist arts have been minutely charted over the past decades, and the modernist context superbly brought to life. While much has been made of the interactions between Modernism / suffrage or Modernism / war, however, another epoch-making social revolution was underway, whose correlation with the arts remains more tenuous.
