Monday, June 21, 2010 - 11:50am
South Atlantic Modern Language Association, session sponsored by the Society for Critical Exchange

Jung's Red Book: Confronting the Unconscious through Word and Image
In 1913, at a moment of personal and professional crisis, Jung began
recording a series of visions and fantasies in what would become an
extended "confrontation with the unconscious." The Red Book, newly
published last year after decades kept under a shroud of family secrecy,
is rife with all the chaos and horror one might expect an honest
accounting of the unplumbed depths of the human psyche to contain. The
book has another striking feature as well, however: it is visually
stunning. Comprised of flowing calligraphic text illuminated by richly

Music Contingencies in Narrated Americas [update]; deadline Sept. 20

Saturday, June 19, 2010 - 10:49pm
NeMLA April 2011 New Brunswick NJ

The purpose of this session is to generate a forum for discussion and theoretical intervention among and within the musical and prosaic work of art. From Adorno to Nancy, the philosophical approach to music engendered a significant comparative debate with language, but can we still find a profitable assessment inside the sign-referent relation? Language follows a descriptive pattern in order to be expressive but, on the other hand, music creates a sort of impasse by articulating an emotional contour. In this sense, music and literature accompanied the euphoric condition that social and political changes developed in Latin America, especially during the first half of the 20th century.

With the publication of Lost Girls and 25,000 Years of Erotic Freedom, the centrality of love and sex in Alan Moore's work has become indisputable. Thus far, however, little scholarly attention has been paid to this facet of his work. This collection, provisionally titled Lost Loves: Why Men and Women Make It (or Don't) in the Work of Alan Moore, aims to remedy that situation.

Silent and Ineffable: Functions of the Unsaid in Literature and the Humanities. Nov. 26-27th, 2010

"Love, and be silent," Cordelia says in Act One. To some, Cordelia's verbal intransigence toward Lear marks her as proud and stiff-necked, to others as truth incarnate. Without doubt, it is her silence that sets the drama into motion, and the question of whether it issues from a refusal or from an inability to speak constitutes an interpretive crux of Shakespeare's play. Cordelia's silence can be taken to exemplify countless other instances where the meaning, structure and intensity of a literary work hinge on the significance of that which remains unsaid.
