Romanticism Panel

Monday, May 8, 2017 - 1:51pm
PAMLA Conference 2017 at Honolulu, Hawaii
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 21, 2017

The Romanticism panel is seeking papers on any aspect of Romanticism, but we are particularly interested in papers that will address the conference theme "The Sense of Sight: Visuality, Visibility, and Ways of Seeing." As part of the material culture in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, writers have attempted to reify themselves through textual or visual representations (e.g., letters, fiction, verse, and fine art through portraiture, etc.). Paper proposals that delve into the value of such cultural constructions in the context of the Romantic era and consider the effect of the writer's self-fashioning and self-projecting representations are especially welcome.

CFP: Edited Collection Preserving U.S. History--Memorializing Contested Events

Conflicts over (mis)representations of historical events have long been a concern of scholars in multiple disciplines. However, the recent shift in the U.S. political climate—most notably, the shift from the Obama to the Trump administration—warrants fresh approaches to the ways in which historical preservation is practiced. To this end, we seek proposals for essays to be included in an edited volume exploring the manner in which U.S. history is preserved, sanitized, or contested through monuments, memorial sites, museums, and print or audio-visual texts.
