"If the authentic test for a great novel is rereading, and the joys of yet further rereading, then Pride and Prejudice can rival any novel ever written." — Harold Bloom One of the most popular works of fiction in English literature, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice (1813) has withstood the tests of time and has been revisited time and again with renewed critical engagements, adaptations and popular celebration. Regardless to say, several tomes have been dedicated to this particular work over the years, and many more continue to be produced with consistency that engage with the novel across areas such as the application of literary theories, in the context of cultural studies or even popular culture.

The topic of scale is currently of great interest to scholars and readers in a number of fields in the humanities and social sciences. Questions of scale, size, and magnitude have become especially urgent in an era of simultaneous globalization and digitization, during which the domains of political, aesthetic, and ethical relationships between human beings are vastly expanded even as industrial technology achieves unprecedented levels of miniaturization. Arguably, contemporary critics and theorists must now catch up with longstanding inquiries and experiments on the significance of scale already undertaken within both the sciences and the self-conscious stylistic practices of twentieth- and twenty-first-century literature, film, and art.
Twelfth Annual Université de Montréal English Graduate Conference
March 12 & 13, 2015
Imagining the Ideal Body: A Graduate Conference on the Politics and Poetics of Perfection.
The nineteenth century witnessed a surge of enthusiasm for visiting places associated with authors and their works, and a related interest in the preservation and consecration of authors' houses. In 1847 one of the world's most famous sites of literary tourism, the birthplace of William Shakespeare at Stratford-upon-Avon, was purchased and established by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, while the first blue plaque was introduced in 1867 to mark the birthplace of Lord Byron. What did visitors to literary graves, houses and landscapes seek to experience and how was this mediated by the spaces themselves?

Charles Taylor recently claimed that we live in "a secular age," one in which a wide range of religious practices – and ways to opt out of those practices – are available. Today we might follow traditional forms of observance, establish new kinds of worship that are not strictly religious, or reject devotional pursuits altogether. Is Taylor right, or have these options always existed in varying degrees, in various periods and places?

Call for papers for a multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary collection of essays on alchemy in the Harry Potter novels.
In a 1998 interview with The Herald, J.K. Rowling said, "I've never wanted to be a witch, but an alchemist, now that's a different matter. To invent this wizard world, I've learned a ridiculous amount about alchemy. . . . I [had] to know in detail what magic can and cannot do in order to set the parameters and establish the stories' internal logic."
We are seeking papers for a collection of new essays on alchemy, broadly conceived, in the Harry Potter series. We welcome essays on alchemy itself and the alchemical symbolism in the novels.

Individuals from around the globe travel to Louisiana early in the year to participate in Mardi Gras celebrations. Masks, costumes and reverie encourage participants to shed certain prefigured aspects of identity in order to become something new. Much of the excitement these traditions allow is rooted in the idea that one can undergo a personal, transformative experience by relinquishing a prefigured sense of self.
