Consuming Culture in Victorian and Edwardian English Literature (SAMLA 87)

updated: 
Wednesday, May 20, 2015 - 2:51pm
SAMLA (South Atlantic Modern Language Association)

From the proliferation and commodification of print culture in the 18th century to the Forster's Education Act of 1870, those who consumed - and the way people consumed – the arts and culture at large changed irrevocably in England. These factors - among numerous others- culminate Leonard Bast's feeble attempts to fit Ruskin's depictions of Venice to his basement hovel in E.M. Forster's classic Howards End. Bast's story, pushed to the margins of the novel, is primarily that of a working class individual attempting to better his position in life through the arts and culture.

Art as Ethics / Ethical Art in the Works of George Eliot (SAMLA 87)

updated: 
Wednesday, May 20, 2015 - 2:50pm
SAMLA (South Atlantic Modern Language Association)

In her famous essay, "The Natural History of German Life," George Eliot decried the recent attempts of English painters to recreate the "truthfulness" of Teniers and Murillo. Though Eliot would attempt to correct the errors in perception and representation through her writing, she continued to engage with other forms of art (paintings and music, specifically) throughout her life. In keeping with the theme of SAMLA 87, this panel looks for papers examining the moments in Eliot's works - her novels, poetry, nonfiction - wherein she contemplates other forms of art and their moral and ethical implications for both her characters and her readers.

Robert T. Tally Jr.

Essay proposals are invited for Teaching Space, Place, and Literature, a volume in the MLA's Options for Teaching series to be edited by Robert T. Tally, Jr. This volume aims to survey a broad expanse of literary critical, theoretical, and historical territory in presenting both an introduction to teaching spatial literary studies and an essential guide to scholarly research being conducted in this burgeoning field. Exploring key topics and pedagogical strategies for teaching issues of space, place, and mapping in literary and cultural studies, this volume will include valuable information for both specialists and nonspecialists in spatiality studies, and the essays should be of interest to teachers of undergraduate- and graduate-level courses.
