Irony, Humor, and Laughter in Italian Literature

Thursday, July 11, 2019 - 12:36am
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

What is the relationship between irony and other literary techniques, including but not limited to humor? How do authors utilize irony and humor in their texts? Are humor and irony to be considered a literary tool to disguise a personal or political agenda? Or are they simply a resource to entertain their readers?

This panel seeks presentations that analyze or investigate the role of irony, humor, and laughter in texts from early modern to contemporary examples by Italian writers. This panel will provide participants with an opportunity to discuss various new and important perspectives on the use of humor and irony in Italian literature. 

Projective Verse at 70: Theoretical and Poetic Influences

Saturday, August 24, 2019 - 4:07pm
The Charles Olson Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 6, 2019

The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a panel at the annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900, to be held at the University of Louisville from February 20-22. 2020 marks the 70th anniversary of this important essay, and the panel will therefore examine the essay’s theoretical and poetic legacies. We are interested in abstracts proposing innovative approaches to reading Olson’s essay and the conversations that it started. How have the theoretical or cultural contexts surrounding projective verse created a robust understanding of poetic practice in the post-1945 era? How have the legacies of projective poetry engaged with and inflected theoretical models?

Film After Joyce (essay collection)

Monday, June 24, 2019 - 8:26pm

Monday, September 30, 2019

The Soviet director Sergei Eisenstein initiated what has become a very long and multifaceted conversation about James Joyce in relation to film.  He was the first director to contemplate an adaptation of Ulysses, for instance, and the only one to discuss such a project with the author himself. Although that adaptation project never came to fruition, Eisenstein was the first film theorist who used Ulysses and Finnegans Wake as reference points to describe how film worked and how it might continue to evolve in the future. He was also the first filmmaker to apply these concepts in practice.
