Society for American Travel Writing

The Society for American Travel Writing invites submissions for its upcoming panel at the triennial meeting of the Society for the Study of American Women Writers, November 4-8, 2015 in Philadelphia.

In keeping with the conference theme of "Liminal Spaces, Hybrid Lives," we welcome papers that explore the ways in which crossing ideological, political, economic, intellectual, and creative boundaries are elaborated in women's travel experiences and travel texts. Because the word "limen" suggests crossing thresholds, an inherent aspect of geographic movement, our panel seeks to investigate how the various mobilities of geography, politics, and identity meet and intersect in women's travel writing.

The Transnational Clash: Essays on "the Only Band that Matters" will be a cross-disciplinary collection of scholarly essays dedicated to the work of The Clash, and as such the first of its kind. It will bring together research by literary critics, sociologists, popular music specialists, musicologists, historians and cultural and area studies specialists in order to explore the transnational aspects of the band's music, lyrics and global cultural impact. The recent conference in Belfast – A Riot of Our Own: a Symposium on The Clash – strongly suggests a high level of contemporary academic interest in the band's work.

ACLA 2015 Seminar: Tender Empiricisms and Weird Sciences

updated: 
Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 12:25pm
Kathleen Morris, University of Oxford

In the nineteenth-century Goethe described "zartre Empirie," a delicate or tender empiricism. His approach provided an alternative to a purely scientific practice, insisting on the value of knowledge produced through rigorous attention to experience. Such an epistemology valued 'lesser orders' of knowledge such as emotion, affect, bodily experience and intuition. Similarly 'weird science' is a way of framing aesthetic practices that use constraints, rules, procedures and models of investigation. However, in the aesthetic domain such protocols are called into the service of affect, offering alternative modes for its expression and different avenues for considering the relationship between feeling and thought as they commingle in cultural texts.

Cogito, Ergo, Shakespeare? Cognitive Literary Studies from the Medieval Mind to Milton's

Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 9:24am
ACCUTE: Association of Canadian College and University Teachers of English

While cognitive literary studies is beginning to establish itself in Shakespeare criticism, there have not been many ventures into the broader applications of cognitive science to early English literature, with the exception of a few examinations of the York Cycle or John Donne's poetry. How might Margaret Cavendish's Description of the Blazing World be interpreted in relation to an emerging Cartesian dualism? Can new insight be gained by exploring a playwright like Ben Jonson, whose attention to scientific discourse is perhaps greater than that of Shakespeare? Should we be skeptical of this burgeoning field? What new applications or readings can enhance current approaches to Shakespeare's works and other early English writers' texts?
