Friday, April 10, 2020

We are currently accepting submissions for the Renaissance Literature Excluding Drama panel taking place at the 2020 South Central Modern Language Association annual conference. The conference will be held in Houston, TX, on October 8-10. We welcome papers on any and all non-dramatic literary Renaissance works, including works from the English Renaissance/Early Modern period. From Machiavelli to Milton and Cervantes to Stanley, all works of poetry and prose are open for consideration. Neither the conference nor the panel have a theme, so we welcome papers with a wide range of topics. The deadline to submit abstracts is April 10, 2020. Please email your 250-word abstracts to chair Ali Webb at mwebb26@lsu.edu.

A recent assessment of the state of the humanities (Williams, “The New Humanities,” Chronicle of Higher Education, 14 Nov. 2019) speaks of the rise of “hybrid humanities” -- increasingly collaborative research ventures built around subjects and approaches such as the environment, digital methods, global networks, and public-facing scholarship. And proficiency, if not mastery, in a second discipline after graduate school seems to be an emerging interest (and even need) among researchers according to an upcoming report on the needs of faculty in literature and writing studies conducted by Ithaka S+R and the MLA International Bibliography.

We're sorry not to be seeing you this summer, but please stay well, and we'll be back next year!

 

Surely the wake left behind by mankind’s forward march reveals its movement just as clearly as the spray thrown up elsewhere by the prow.

 – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

 

Few would dispute the validity of Teilhard’s analogy itself: a society is defined as much by what it rejects as what it values. What we might question is the very forwardness of the march he imagines. Moreover, would an exhibit of what any given society has “left behind” constitute a tribute or a condemnation?
