Women in Literature MMLA 2017—“Literatures from the Lockdown”

 

Thinking about this year’s MMLA theme, “Art and Activism,” led us to consider the ways in which women’s art and women’s activism have been “locked down.” Sometimes women’s art and women’s activism locks itself down; after all, Audre Lorde once proclaimed at an MLA conference, “What does it mean when the tools of a racist patriarchy are used to examine the fruits of that same patriarchy? It means that only the most narrow perimeters of change are possible and allowable.” How, then, do we escape the lockdown? How do we empower even as we resist?

I

In keeping with this year’s MMLA Convention theme, “Art and Activism,” I welcome papers that address social/political activism in nineteenth-century British literature and culture. Possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to: writers as social critics; the Victorian social problem novel; radical lyric and narrative representations; Aesthetes, Decadents, and the idea of “Art for Art’s sake”; and humanists, humanitarians, and social activists in life and fiction.

Please send a 250-word abstract and a brief bio. by April 5th, 2017 to Bailey Shaw at bshaw@siu.edu.

Sense of Place in American Modernist Poetry and Visual Art

Tuesday, March 28, 2017 - 9:29am
American Literature Association Symposium, Hotel Monteleone, New Orleans
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 1, 2017

This panel explores the sense of place as part of the indigenous language of American artistic production of Modernism in the context of the European avant-garde. Though U.S. poets and artists were influenced by the formal techniques of Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Dadaism and Surrealism, they were also determined to search for the essence of an expressive language that defined its authenticity as opposed to European foreignness. One of their avenues of research was the exploration of the distinctive features of the American soil as a means of contributing novel aspects to modern aesthetics. The genuine character of the environment is closely linked to the strong attachment to rural or urban spaces and the value they acquire for the observer.

Aesthetics and Form in Victorian Art, Literature, and Culture

October 28, 2017, 8:30-5:30pm 

“It is not enough that it has the Form, if it have not also the power and life. It is not enough that it has the Power, if it have not the form. We must therefore inquire into each of these characters successively; and determine first, what is the Mental Expression, and secondly, what the Material Form.” John Ruskin, The Nature of Gothic IV.183.
