Association for Documentary Editing’s Call for Papers

Modern Language Association Meeting

7-10 January 2021

Toronto, Ontario, Canada

 

 

Marginalia and footnotes are their own genres, but most editors concentrate on the main body of a text. Yet material outside that text body, whether as marginalia or footnotes, can have great bearing on the meaning of the main document.

 

Marginalia and footnotes raise a number of questions:

 

* What is the function of such material?

 

* Who made the marks, and when, where, and why?

 

* As editors, what do we do with them?

Economy and Value of Time in Boredom

updated: 
Thursday, March 5, 2020 - 10:02am
MLA 2021 in Toronto
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 15, 2020

The word boredom has been in circulation since Ancient times, in the shape of a variety of synonyms --acedia, taedium vitae, horror loci, melancholy, ennui, spleen-- and bearing a theological stamp, since it was believed to be a demonic sin in the Christian tradition. In modernity, however, for the “enlightened subject” (Goodstein, 4), as a response to social and economic transformations, boredom has become a secular experience concerned with temporality, signifying loss of meaning and feeling of emptiness in the pace of modern life. In critical circles, boredom remains a hybrid phenomenon that brings together a variety of contradictory definitions.

This special issue of ELN takes up the complex relationship between clothing and place and seeks to examine the transcultural flow of commodities (specifically clothing and fashionable objects) both within and across national borders.
