Julie Ooms / Intégrité: A Journal of Faith and Learning (Missouri Baptist University)

Intégrité (pronounced IN tay gri tay) is a scholarly journal published twice a year by the Faith & Learning Committee and the Humanities Division of Missouri Baptist University, St. Louis, MO. Published both online (http://www.mobap.edu/integrite) and in print copy, it welcomes essays for a special issue (Spring 2016) on "Faith and Violence in Literature." Essays may explore the interaction between Christian faith and violence in individual works or writers, in issues concerning teaching such works and writers, and in the pedagogical tasks educators at faith-based institutions of higher learning face when discussing and reflecting on the use of violence.

Laura Fisher and Autumn Womack- C19: The Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists

The Progressive Era (1890-1920) occupies an unsettled place in Americanist literary studies, despite the period's claims to forward-looking progress. To some extent, this uneasy relationship to the discipline-- whose professional protocols, pedagogy, and scholarship often operates by means of century-based periodization-- reflects the period's own wildly unsettled nature.

Society for the Study of Southern Literature

Taking place for the first time in a non-Southern venue, SSSL's conference next year in Boston will focus on challenges to and reconfigurations of North/South binaries in regional, national, hemispheric, and transatlantic literary and cultural studies. The foundation of traditional US Southern literary studies on domestic regional difference and distinctiveness has been expanded over recent decades to encompass broader study of Southernness within national and global rubrics.

Expanding the Field: Rethinking Projective Verse and Mid-Century American Poetry

Wednesday, July 8, 2015 - 5:21pm
The Charles Olson Society

The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a session at the annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900, to be held at the University of Louisville, February 18-20, 2016. We are interested in abstracts pertaining to any aspect of mid-Century American poetics, but in particular those that build on and problematize the mechanics of projective verse. While "Projective Verse" has received ample treatment in studies concerning major poets like Charles Olson and Robert Duncan, other poets built on projective verse in their own ways, fashioning distinctive styles that, while tangentially related to projective verse, also created new poetic forms.

Columbia, Columbus, Columbianism: The Admiral's Metamorphoses in Nineteenth-Century America

Zach Hutchins/C19: The Society of Early Americanists

As the historian Thomas Schlereth noted in an essay from which this panel takes its name, the memory and image of Christopher Columbus were appropriated by citizens of the United States for a wide variety of purposes during the long nineteenth century. A feminine personification of the new republic signifying liberty and progress was named Columbia in his honor; the exploits of a newly recovered historical Columbus were invoked in support of western expansionism and Manifest Destiny; and the naturalization of various ethnic groups was a process of Columbianism, whereby the Admiral's status as an immigrant to the New World rhetorically sanctioned the integration of Italians, Jews, and other groups into the American body politic.
