Hidden Gems from Fleet Street: New Perspectives on Non-Canonical and Popular Eighteenth-Century Literature

Monday, November 12, 2018 - 4:17pm

Beginning with the pamphlet wars during the Restoration and ending with authors serving as critics to one anothers’ writings in the Romantic period, the eighteenth century was rife was debates about how to define and identify good literature. Authors such as John Dryden, Alexander Pope, Thomas Gray, William Wordsworth, and many others served as adjudicators of good literature by chastising others’ work in their prefaces, poetry, pamphlets, and mock epics. Theater history and book history however, tells us that some of the works of these dunces were widely popular and important in their own right—regardless of how derided they were by their peers.

Corroding the Now: Poetry + Science|SF

Monday, November 5, 2018 - 10:38am
Royal Holloway, University of London
deadline for submissions:

The world we inhabit is framed, driven, (re)produced, and conceptualised by and through science. Science as a mode of knowing contours the prevailing episteme, whilst technological innovation continues to remake work and leisure experience. At the same time, society is both reflected and in turn formed by science fiction (SF): as contributor to the nostalgia economy, as a dominant visual-commercial aesthetic, as a mimetic index of the present’s utopian and dystopian tendencies. The now is a time of extreme precarity. We face a raft of catastrophes – political, socioeconomic, and, most pressingly, ecological. And yet, even as our own survival comes into question, capitalism itself seems unassailable, primed to outlast ‘humanity.’

CFP: “Robert Frost and Animal Studies”


American Literature Association 30th Annual Conference in Boston, MA

May 23-26, 2019 at the Westin Copley Place

Sponsor: Robert Frost Society (session 1)


“We were lost piecemeal to the animals, / Like people thrown out to delay the wolves,” Robert Frost wrote famously in his poem “The White-Tailed Hornet” of the modern trend to investigate animality in humans. Robert Frost Society invites new essays on Robert Frost’s life and work which would engage some of the critical frameworks being developed today in animal studies.
