Whether as a self in motion, a delusional self, or a pensive self, the construction and representation of the “self” is central to the 18C. The scrutiny of self-representation has been taken up through the lens of rhetoric, literary genres, gender, modernity, politics, and history, to name but a few scholarly undertakings. This panel seeks to explore self-representation as spectacle, performance, testimonial, revelation, and/or deliverance, be they evident in the printed word or in the visual and fine arts. Contributions across disciplines and geographies examining representations of the self are welcome. The use of visual aids is encouraged.
Between approximately 1880 and 1945, women involved in modernist and avant-garde circles frequently crossed the cultural and linguistic frontiers dividing the English- and Spanish-speaking worlds—in Europe, the Americas, the Caribbean, and across the Atlantic. Driven by crucial historical and political events such as World War I and Word War II, the Mexican Revolution, and the Spanish Civil War, as well as by reasons of artistic, literary, and aesthetic exploration, many women writers and artists decided, or saw themselves forced, to go beyond frontiers. Indeed, some remained permanently ‘in transit’ across national and other sorts of boundaries, experiencing the trauma of exile.
This is a call for The American Comparative Literature Association's 2017 Annual Meeting, which will take place at Utrecht University in Utrecht, the Netherlands July 6-9, 2017. It means to investigate the entangled relationship of modern and contemporary poetry and ecology. Referencing Rey Chow’s notion of entanglement, i.e., a “condition of overlapping recurrences,” the panel seeks to analyze the points of recursive coincidence that ensue between cultural manifestations, poetic production, and environmental thinking. Entanglement points to associations of spatial proximity, of overlaying, but also of resistance and tension between phenomena.
