Reading Form in European Renaissance Poetry

RSA 2016, Boston

Sponsored by the Discipline of Comparative Literature

Papers sought that offer historical interpretations of poetic form. How do Renaissance poets, theorists, and readers interpret and classify formal features of verse (including rhyme, meter, and generic forms like the sonnet or the epigram)? How do poets use form to position themselves in literary history? What is the relationship between poetic practice and the poetic theories presented in manuals and defenses of poetry? Comparative and multi-lingual papers especially encouraged.

Call for Submissions: The Hermeneutics of Hell: Devilish Visions and Visions of the Devil in World Literature

"There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They themselves are equally pleased by both errors, and hail a materialist or magician with the same delight." C. S. Lewis. The Screwtape Letters

Tufts Graduate Humanities Conference

Keynote: Omise'eke Tinsley, University of Texas at Austin
Conference Date: October 16, 2015

Kinships that cross boundaries often entail radical decenterings of family, community, or subjectivity. What happens
when Yellow Peril supports Black Power in Ferguson? When Maggie Simpson holds up a Je Suis Charlie sign?
When, in a single frame, Kordale and Kaleb dismantle stale notions of Black masculinity, queerness, and
fatherhood?
Can we undomesticate kinship?

CfP: Texts in times of conflict [DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS 5 JUNE]

The Centre for Textual Studies and The Centre for Adaptations, De Montfort University

Reflecting on the seismic cultural and political shifts of his own time, Francis Bacon pinpointed 'printing, gunpowder, and the compass' as the technological drivers which had 'changed the appearance and state of the whole world'. Bacon's identification of communicative (print), violent (gunpowder) and technological (compass) forms of cultural expression and exchange as world-shaping continues to resonate, shaping the production and interpretation of texts.
