CfP "Emotional and Affective Narratives in pre-Modern Europe/ Late-Medieval and Renaissance France"
We are still interested in essays that investigate the constituency of such "archives of feelings" through the study of the affectivity and emotionality of both literary and non-literary texts, such as political and theological treatises, mystical texts, medical works, scientific tracts and pamphlets, hagiographies and encyclopedic compendiums. While we welcome submissions of articles dealing with such topics in different geographic areas, we are particularly interested in late-medieval and Renaissance French texts.
Articles may examine, but are not limited to questions related to:
- Discourses and practices of emotions and affect

SAMLA Special Session: Transforming Text and Images in Ovid's Metamorphoses

updated: 
Monday, June 1, 2015 - 10:03am
South Atlantic Modern Language Association

This panel will discuss representations of vignettes from Ovid's Metamorphoses, focusing on illustrated editions, graphic literary representations, and other visuals. Ovid's epic naturally lent itself to visual representation, both affected by prior artwork and affecting subsequent art depicting Roman mythology. An ethically problematic poem, the Metamorphoses was received with anxiety, particularly for the dangerous lessons it could impart to vulnerable audiences, which resulted in adaptations that transformed image and text to guide readers' interpretations.
