This proposed session for MLA 2018 (NYC, 4-7 January) seeks to explore the relationship between race and beauty in the 19th century. How were Victorian concepts of beauty tied to theories of race? Papers that define beauty in terms of Victorian aesthetic theories are especially welcome, as are papers that deal not only with physical beauty but with beauty in the arts. How did Victorian theories about music and art, for example, participate in imperlalism, colonialism, and / or race theory? This session seeks to deepen scholarly understanding of the ways that Victorians theorized beauty, broadly defined, in relation to racialized evolutionary concepts.

In line with the broader theme of LACK 2, “Psychoanalysis and Politics NOW,” this panel is interested in introducing the “postcolonial question” into the conference’s exploration of “the philosophical, political, and cultural implications of psychoanalytic theory, especially as it relates to the question of contemporary politics.” Also hoping to restart dialogue between the now divorced fields of postcolonial studies and Lacanian psychoanalytic theory, the organizers of this panel are inviting papers addressing how postcolonial and psychoanalysis can come together to interrogate the politics of the global present.

"Where is Paradise, Lantanacamara?" -- a question readers of Shani Mootoo’s Cereus Blooms at Night (1996) may reasonably ask as they are immersing themselves in that locale.  Contemporary literature often takes world-making as a matter—and the stuff—of diegesis, not mimesis.  Form, not the formation of a nation, seems among others a feature of contemporary fiction in world-making and situating the reader.  Taking a cue from Eric Hayot, who, in On Literary Worlds (2012), sees “the world of the work of art” as a wholeness crafted, complete in itself and self-referential, and argues that such as a world is “always a relation to and theory of the lived world” (43-44), our panel invites papers that 1) explore how contemporary literature repre

In his pathbreaking argument that the "Orient" was "a European invention" crucial to the West's self-construction, Edward Said builds on earlier work such as Raymond Schwab's encyclopedic history of Orientalism byinsisting on the "formidable structure of cultural domination" that the orientalist text elaborates or enacts. The "fact of empire" gives nearly all nineteenth century writing a political charge, but British Romanticism specifically can be seen to emerge out of or in relation to the period of England's intensive imperial expansion, including the operations of the East India Company from the acquisition of territory in the Battle of Plassey in 1757 to the Great Revolt in India in 1857 as a resu
