ASECS 2015: Minor Authors and Minor Genres: Re-examining the Creation of the Eighteenth-Century Literary Canon

updated: 
Wednesday, July 23, 2014 - 11:20am
ASECS Annual Meeting

By the end of the eighteenth-century, thanks to literary histories such as Samuel Johnson's Lives of the Poets and Thomas Warton's The History of English Poetry, along with the beginning of literary criticism, the framework of the eighteenth-century canon we still use today had already been created. Writers who were lauded by Johnson and Warton as the writers of the age are for the most part still anthologized and taught in undergraduate courses in today's universities. However, an entire oeuvre of white male authors of the dominant political party—such as Elkanah Settle, Colley Cibber, and Warton himself—are relatively unexplored even though they exerted influence over literary culture as City Poet and Poets Laureate, respectively.

Arts in Literature: Interdisciplinarity and Ekphrasis in Luso-Hispanic Letters (April 30-May 3, 2015)

updated: 
Tuesday, July 22, 2014 - 5:19am
NeMLA 2015

Abstract:

From the well know Horatian statement 'Ut pictura poesis' until the most recent interdisciplinary works with videogames, World Wide Letters has always testified the link between literature and painting, music, sculpture, architecture, cinema or dance. This fertile alliance is shown by the essence of the different approaches: from the description of a piece of art to the application of filmic, musical and other artistic techniques into literature. Luso-Hispanic poets, novelists and playwrights seem to demonstrate a special interest in ekphrasis and interdisciplinarity and throughout the History of Literature one can see a reflection of society in the relationship that authors establish(ed) among arts in their works.

NeMLA 2015 Panel Seeing is Believing: Antiquity and Beyond Abstract due Sept. 30th

Claire Sommers/The Graduate Center, CUNY

The relationship between the visual and the literary traces its origins to antiquity. In Rhetoric, Aristotle famously defines rhetoric as 'the ability to see the available means of persuasion' (I.2.1). Sight is a vital component of the human cognitive experience; neither education nor persuasion can take place without visualization. Throughout antiquity, philosophical concepts were often conveyed by artistic terminology and visual language and all genres of Classical literature contain lengthy ekphrases.

Food and Sustainability: Towards a Culinary Ecology [April 30-May 3, 2014]

Sunday, July 20, 2014 - 10:57am
Northeast Modern Language Association

Interest in the fields of food and sustainability studies within the humanities is rapidly growing, in part due to their ability to investigate our perceived relationship with ecology. Food is a text that conveys identity, reflecting historically grounded or socially constructed attitudes through what is produced and consumed, both gastronomic and printed. Likewise, the connection between nature and culture as manifested in narratives allow us to recognize the discourse and disconnect between society and our environment, marking us through this relationship. Central to both fields is the interplay of humanity and environment, depicted in rural and urban ecologies, e.g. food deserts versus urban food jungles.
