CFP for NeMLA 2020, March 5-8. Boston, MA Panel Session: Visibility of the Invisible: The Idea, Theory, and Ontology of Trace

This panel invites proposals to examine the notion, theory, idea, and ontology of the trace and the ways in which it can be deployed in literature, critical theory, image studies, art, film, and other media and disciplines. 

---

From its rudimentary manifestations as smoke and fire and footprint, to theological significations of the image of Jesus on the Shroud of Turin, the trace, as a visible marker of an absent presence, generates a compelling milieu to meditate on the proliferation of meaning in text and image.

Women and Lydgate (a roundtable) @ ICMS 2020

updated: 
Tuesday, August 13, 2019 - 2:02pm
Lydgate Society
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 15, 2019

Lydgate’s relationship with women was complicated. Within 200 lines of one poem, he denigrates their instability and denounces another author’s misogyny. Beyond the treatment of women in his works, he counted several influential women among his patrons. Political and religious extremists of our own time have attempted to appropriate medieval studies for patriarchal purposes, and we must challenge these views by fully explicating the complexities of texts about and connected to women. This roundtable solicits brief papers exploring Lydgate’s relationship with women as characters and patrons. We will attempt to untangle the various threads of Lydgate’s treatment of and relationship to women.

Lydgate's Little Library @ ICMS 2020

updated: 
Tuesday, August 13, 2019 - 1:54pm
Lydgate Society
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 15, 2019

A full 43% of Lydgate’s works in the DIMEV have no print or online editions. Rather than situating Lydgate in relation to his “big works” that have (sometimes multiple) editions – “Siege of Thebes,” “Troy Book,” and “Fall of Princes” – we should take our cue from Thomas Warton, who in 1840 wrote that “to enumerate Lydgate’s pieces, would be to write the catalogue of a little library.” We invite proposals addressing “Lydgate’s Little Library” – those pieces that demonstrate his “versatility of talents” (to quote Warton) and do not get the scholarly or pedagogical attention that his larger works do.
