One very common narrative about Victorian Britain is that it was an age of ground-breaking scientific discoveries: Charles Lyell significantly extended the age of our planet; Charles Darwin forced a rethinking of the origins and development of life; Michael Faraday and James Maxwell Clark paved the way for modern physics; Non-Euclidean Geometry changed the way mathematicians measured and formalized the world; Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace laid the foundation for computing. The list could be expanded at leisure, as scientists made and remade the various fields in which humans have tried to make sense of the natural world.

Papers sought for a special session to be proposed for MLA 2016 on any aspect of nineteenth-century science fiction. Potential angles on this topic may include:

- proto-science fiction
- texts traditionally not viewed as science fiction, reconsidered as aligned with the emergence of the genre
- historical/cultural influences on the emergence of the genre
- literary/cultural impacts of the emergence of the genre

Death, Violence and Fiction

updated: 
Monday, March 2, 2015 - 9:59pm
MLA Special Session

We invite essays focusing on representations of death and/or violence in U.S. religiously-inflected fictions of the nineteenth century.

Essays might examine consider, for example:

-the ways authors associated with religious traditions have embraced or rejected imagery commonly associated with death and/or violence

-the kinds of spaces in which violence and/or death are figured

-death and/or violence as metaphors for religious experience

-the rhetorical strategies deployed to use religion as a justification for sectional, racial, and territorial violence

-how struggles for political representation are waged via religious representations, and the connotations that accompany particular religious traditions.

In an increasingly market-driven educational environment, aestheticist arguments for the study of literature appear more and more unconvincing as colleges and universities have begun to see themselves (and to be seen by students) as producing an education that molds future workers rather than augmented civic subjects.
