House and Home in 20th Century American Film and Literature (conference 4/2011; abstract due 9/30/2010)

From Blanche Dubois' Belle Reve to Esperanza Cordero's house on Mango Street, houses—and the affiliated, if more abstract, idea of home—figure prominently in 20th century American literature and film. The 20th century, after all, is characterized by both inter- and intra-national migrations which have, invariably, entailed the loss of one home, followed by the acquisition of another. Moreover, the 20th century has seen a steady increase in both actual home ownership and the imaginative importance of owning a home. At the start of the 20th century, 46.5% of Americans—less than one in two—were homeowners but, by 2000, that number had risen to 66.2%, or two in three.

Victorian Sensation Fiction at the <em>Fin de Siecle</em>

updated: 
Sunday, May 30, 2010 - 4:16pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

This panel will examine the ways in which Victorian Sensation Fiction interacted with Modernity. We will ask: How did the genre anticipate and respond to late 19th century Parliamentary activity? In what ways did sensation fiction challenge or reflect evolving ideas about gender and identity? Panelists will interrogate sensation fiction's relationship to art and aestheticism movements, advances in technologies including "iron horses," commercial culture, and Modernity's historical and political events, including Britain's empire project. We will discuss the ways in which sensation fiction seeded later literary movements such as the "New Woman" novels.
