Shakespeare's Unsung Heroes and Heroines - Berlin 23-26 April 2015

updated: 
Tuesday, October 7, 2014 - 5:30am
German Shakespeare Association

Without Paulina and Antigonus there would be no reunion, however tainted, between Leontes and Hermione, and there would be no union of Perdita and Florizel in "The Winter's Tale". In a sense, then, Paulina and Antigonus are the unsung heroine and hero of the play. Undoubtedly, Antigonus' exit pursued by a bear is not typical of a tragic hero.

[ACLA seminar] Double frames: authors, texts, audiences in original translation

updated: 
Thursday, October 2, 2014 - 8:01am
Brigitte Rath, U Innsbruck/FU Berlin; Beatrijs Vanacker, KU Leuven

Writing a text as if it were a translation creates a specific kind of fiction: it overlays the act of authorship with an invented author, and the original text with an invented original in a different language, aimed at a different audience. Original translation does not (only) invite readers to imagine a fictional world, but to imagine a fictional original version of the very text they read.

"Performing History in Early Modern France" - ACLA, March 26-29, 2015

updated: 
Tuesday, September 30, 2014 - 1:11pm
Anna Rosensweig, University of Southern California; Joy Palacios, Simon Fraser University

This seminar investigates how literature contributes to our understanding of early modern France as a historical period. Departing from the conviction that literature does more than merely register and reflect historical events, we explore how literatures of the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries complicate historical records and create their own histories. Bringing together scholars whose research addresses a range of genres and sites of expression, this seminar seeks to foster methodological conversation and debate. Our key questions include: How do literary texts "perform" historically. In other words, what do these texts preserve or transfer that might otherwise be lost? What kinds of archives do literary texts constitute?

The McGill English Department's Twenty-First Annual Graduate Student Conference on Language and Literature invites submissions on literary and cultural engagements with violation. Violation can signify multiply: violating rules and regulations, violating genre or generic conventions, violating treaties, violating the body, violating expectations, violating intellectual property and copyright, violating social and cultural conventions, violating promises, violating standardized constructions of gender and sexuality, violating religious codes, violating privacy, violating human rights and dignities, and more. How are these political, stylistic, generic, bodily, and social infractions figured in diverse literary and cultural contexts?
