Sunday, September 24, 2017

In 1568, George Bannatyne fled Edinburgh to the countryside during a plague outbreak. To pass the time during his isolation, he complied an anthology of Scots literature that inevitably created an important collection indicative of a rich medieval and Early Modern Scottish poetic heritage. The Bannatyne Manuscript is one of the most prolific and thorough collections of medieval Scottish literature, providing a window into Scottish literary culture and medieval society. Divided into five sections based on content, the manuscript features poetry that explores theology, moral and philosophical themes, satire, gender and love, and allegories.

Shannon Derby, Tufts University; Michelle Medeiros, Marquette University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 21, 2017

Travel narratives are unavoidably influenced by the changes in perspectives and new experiences that take place as bodies cross national, political, and cultural boundaries. They also situate the body, particularly the gendered body, within a larger context that ascribes bodily roles and hierarchies through the rhetoric of power and mobility.

Experimental Narrative in Nonfiction

Monday, August 21, 2017 - 10:52pm
International Society for the Study of Narrative, Montreal, QC, April 19-22, 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 25, 2017

Unnatural and otherwise strange narrative devices tend to be associated with experimental fiction, yet they are often used in nonfiction, including (auto)biography, documentary film, journalism, history and science. A few examples: Claude Lanzmann’s documentary Shoah eschews chronological telling in order to repudiate notions of historical causality and inevitability; Richard Dawkins’ history of life on earth, The Ancestor’s Tale,uses similar manoeuvers, if for very different reasons.
