Dissimulation is but a faint kind of policy, or wisdom; for it asketh a strong wit, and a strong heart, to know when to tell truth, and to do it. Therefore it is the weaker sort of politics, that are the great dissemblers! (Francis Bacon, “Of Dissimulation”)

Early Modern Literary Inventories - ACLA Panel, Utrecht 2017
This is a call for The American Comparative Literature Association's 2017 Annual Meeting, which will take place at Utrecht University in Utrecht, the Netherlands July 6-9, 2017. It means to investigate the entangled relationship of modern and contemporary poetry and ecology. Referencing Rey Chow’s notion of entanglement, i.e., a “condition of overlapping recurrences,” the panel seeks to analyze the points of recursive coincidence that ensue between cultural manifestations, poetic production, and environmental thinking. Entanglement points to associations of spatial proximity, of overlaying, but also of resistance and tension between phenomena.
Call for papers for the Chaucer MetaPage session at the International Medieval Congress, Kalamazoo, in May 2017
Beyond the Portraits: Teaching Chaucer's Tales with Visuals.
For this session, we seek papers that explore the possibilities of using visual materials to teach the Canterbury Tales, going beyond the Ellesmere portraits and similar highly familiar resources. These resources could be online or off (e.g. photos, underexplored book illustrations, ephemera). The session will emphasize the pedagogical value of these materials.
