University Grenoble Alpes and University Savoie Mont Blanc (France)

This multidisciplinary conference aims to build bridges across disciplines such as history, civilizational studies, literature, and anthropology—among other fields—that rarely cooperate in academia. We also aim to address a diachronic time frame covering the 16th to the 20th centuries. The historiographic tradition equates the journey to a change of scenery and an experience of Otherness.

Creating and Un-creating the World in the Romantic Imagination

SAMLA

The Romantics era was rife with social and economic shifts and imbalances as the Industrial Revolution brought destruction to the natural world and further stratification of the classes. In this increasingly dystopian climate, Romantic authors often sought an idyllic nature in which to imbue their utopian views; as such, the Romantic imagination became a mechanism through which authors essentially deconstructed the dystopian world and created the utopian imagination. Conversely, the Romantics sometimes deconstructed the utopian environment as a means to express the dystopian imagination.

Busting Boundaries: Unexpected Interdisciplinarity

updated: 
Friday, April 8, 2016 - 2:50pm
MMLA--special sessions

To those whose imaginative or scholarly inclinations chafe at fixed boundaries, the limitations they imply can inspire rebellion—that is an attempt to breach the boundaries and explore what lies beyond them. This session solicits papers that address literary topics using tools or approaches from disciplines that rarely meet in the same paper. For example, in what ways can mathematics provide a new or different interpretive lens for a literary text? Or what can poetry tell us about biology?

Submit a proposal of no more than 500 words by April 20.
