Session Title - Images of Crisis: Poetic Ways of Seeing Disasters

Whether it is Landscape with the Fall of Icarus or the photograph of a dead three year-old Syrian boy on the beach, visual representations of disasters unsettle us, at times in unexplainable ways. As Susan Sontag suggests in Regarding the Pain of Others, narratives imbue the images with much of their meaning. In this sense, literary art, as a descriptive rhetorical device that captures the essential stories of visual images, becomes a critical motor of meaning-making.

Voyeurism functions in fiction in many ways: as state surveillance, as individual stalking, and even, arguably, in the acts of reading and writing. This panel will consider voyeurism through voyeur-tinged original fiction and critical papers both on voyeuristic works of fiction and on the voyeurism of the reader/writer/character relationship.

DEADLINE APPROACHING—CFP for Panel at SAMLA—The Avant-Garde and Modern Visual Culture: At the Crossroads of High and Low Art

This panel examines the imbrication of the avant-garde with mass-produced art in order to discern the relationships between the proliferation of images and capitalism in the advent of modern visual culture. Imitating the shock value of advertising, the avant-gardists appeal to the eye of the viewer to gain visibility in the domains of art and draw the consumer’s attention to its product, thereby revealing the profit-oriented motives of marketplace exchanges. Immaterialities such as images are thus transformed into commodities that blend high and low aesthetic genres that participate in the consumer society.

10 DAYS TO SUBMIT AN ABSTRACT—CFP for ALA panel—Sense of Place in American Modernist Poetry and Visual Art

American Literature Association—"Regionalism and Place in American Literature"
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.

 This panel proposes that early modern transformations in rape law placed pressure on issues concerning female self-possession, sexual knowledge, pleasure, and consent and that these tensions were critiqued and, at times, exploited by playwrights and authors of the period. In what ways do sixteenth and seventeenth century poetry, drama, and literature explore the injustices and ambiguities arising from the elision of resistance, coercion, and consent in sexual encounters?
