CFP RMMLA 2014 Subjectivity in Motion: Chinese Literature before 1900 (Abstract due March 1, 2014)

This panel at the 2014 Rocky Mountain MLA Annual Convention invite presentations on the topic of "Subject in Motion: Chinese Literature before 1900". In the context of pre-twentieth century Chinese literature, subjectivity as a theoretical imperative draws wide critical attention to the process in which political, ideological and literary discourses profoundly formulated authors' personal and collective experiences, and yielded long-lasting impact on the social and cultural trends of the ensuing centuries.

Literati 2014: Speaking Bodies
University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, WI
www.museuw.com/call-for-papers

Textual bodies have long served as a battleground for conceiving of the human body. Through the lens of literature, people have fathomed the body's limits, its relationship to identity, its ability to liberate or enchain. Literati 2014's theme, "Speaking Bodies," asks, What does it mean to be embodied, and what are the consequences of conceiving of human or textual bodies as "legible"? Who or what gets to establish the limits of these bodies? How are they able to transform or be transformed?

The voice of an artist reaches and touches the world as well as the lives of his/ her readers. The words of writers can stir social unrest but they can also pacify the crowds. Literary works are instrumental in preserving national identities, and Poland's troubled history during the Partitions can serve as the epitome of the authority of literature. Writers, however, are equally revered as they are persecuted for the statements they dare to utter.
