CFP Gertrude Stein and Music MLA Seattle 2012

updated: 
Friday, January 21, 2011 - 8:06pm
The Lyrica Society for Word-Music Relations and the Association for the Study of Dada and Surrealism

This session will examine the works of composers who set texts by Gertrude
Stein to music, either as songs, choral works, musicals, operas, or any other
type of composition. These may have been written during Stein's lifetime
with her collaboration, such as her operas with Virgil Thomson, or may have
been set posthumously. Among the topics to be explored are how music affects
the texts' meaning, why composers would choose to set Stein, and Stein's own
thoughts on the combination of words and music.

Seeking Articles for an Edited Volume on Women Writers and Psychoanalysis

Thursday, January 20, 2011 - 3:30pm
Cambridge Scholars Press

I'm seeking article submissions for a volume of critical essays, which will be published by Cambridge Scholars Press. The collection will focus on twentieth-century female writers' responses to the work of Sigmund Freud with a particular emphasis on alternative models of the psychoanalytic process posed by women. The book will move beyond critiques of Freud and his influence on twentieth century ideas about gender, demonstrating instead the ways women writers have reclaimed agency through the artistic process. With that in mind, the essays selected for publication will address the following topics:
