Material Transgressions: Romantic Bodies, Affects, Genders (Proposed Collection)

updated: 
Friday, August 5, 2016 - 4:41pm
Eds. Kate Singer, Mount Holyoke College; Suzanne L. Barnett, Francis Marion University; Ashley J. Cross, Manhattan College
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 31, 2016

Current theoretical debates about subjects and objects, bodies and minds, and genre and gender have explored in detail women’s status as objects and done much to theorize their efforts to become speaking subjects. But these discussions can be more transgressive in order to explore the ways in which Romantic writers in particular challenged the foundational ideas of materiality that they were given and on which we continue to rely when we read them in the twenty-first century. For the proposed collection, Material Transgressions: Romantic Bodies, Affects, Genders, we are soliciting essays that think outside of Romantic ideologies of gender that reiterate notions of sexed bodies, embodied subjectivity, or stable texts.

There is a subtle irony in the fact that Thomas Hoccleve, whose corpus of early fifteenth-century poems is saturated with the concepts of recovery and rehabilitation, has been at the center of a decades-long process of poetic and pedagogic rehabilitation in university English departments. No longer brushed aside as a mere epigone of Geoffrey Chaucer, the traditional nucleus of Medieval English literature syllabi, Hoccleve now claims a legitimate place in the late medieval canon.  But what is that place exactly, as far as college classrooms go?

Novels of the Holocaust: Fundamental Pedagogical Issues

Monday, July 18, 2016 - 2:18pm
Richard Schumaker Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

 

The aim of this roundtable is to present possible guidelines and book selections for a hypothetical undergraduate course in “Novels of the Holocaust.” The panel will be resolutely international and open to books originally published in any language. As this roundtable is sponsored by NeMLA’s comparative literature director, participants are not obliged to use or refer to English translations if they wish to use original texts. The course that might be called the “target course” may be for any undergraduate level and for any country.

While this is roundtable is meant to follow the interests of its participants and not impose any institutional rigidities, seven particular themes or questions seem especially important.
