Reading Love's Labour's Lost
13-14 February 2015
Paris, France

Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost, sometimes described as euphuistic because of the importance of language games, also stages a revision of neopetrarchanism. This conference aims at providing a whole range of critical readings of the play and its "so sweet and voluble… discourse" (II.1.562).

All approaches will here be welcome, including – but by no means exclusively:

- performance studies
- textual studies
- gender studies
- neo-historicist approaches
- historical / social studies / cultural studies
- visual studies
- linguistic studies

Modern Money: Aesthetics after the Gold Standard; October 23 - 24 , 2014; Guest Speaker: Yanis Varoufakis

Sunday, June 15, 2014 - 4:44pm
Department of History of Art, University of California, Berkeley

"Money is the root form of representation in bourgeois society." So T. J. Clark put it in 1999. Almost aphoristic in its phrasing, the sentence turns on the set of questions it raises – about markets and money flows, about value and abstraction, about whom money belongs to, about the "social reality of the Sign" and the effect money has on artmaking. Money becomes a central form – maybe the central form – of life, inescapable and intractable. The conditions that shape our present and the failure of the Left to devise a practicable response have only intensified the urgency of the proposition and the questions that ground its pivot.

Food and Sustainability: Towards a Culinary Ecology [April 30-May 3, 2014]

updated: 
Thursday, June 12, 2014 - 5:08pm
Northeast Modern Language Asssociation

Interest in the fields of food and sustainability studies within the humanities is rapidly growing, in part due to their ability to investigate our perceived relationship with ecology. Food is a text that conveys identity, reflecting historically grounded or socially constructed attitudes through what is produced and consumed, both gastronomic and printed. Likewise, the connection between nature and culture as manifested in narratives allow us to recognize the discourse and disconnect between society and our environment, marking us through this relationship. Central to both fields is the interplay of humanity and environment, depicted in rural and urban ecologies, e.g. food deserts versus urban food jungles.

Poetry/the word: Choices, Forms, and Sensibilities April 30-May3,2015

updated: 
Wednesday, June 11, 2014 - 10:08am
Eugene Grren/NEMLA

This panel seeks papers for the NEMLA conference, Toronto, April 30- May 3 2015 that show how arrangements of words contribute to poetic forms and sensibilities. Lexical arrangements include, say, words paired together, compounds, similes, and metaphors. Sensibilities, evocative of worlds imagined within and elsewhere, may characterize the work of a poet, a period, or cultural differences.
The overall theses invited, then, involve exploring in British or American poetry the interplay between lexical choices and patterns, poetic forms, and evocative sensibilities. Panels chairs Eugene Green and Carol Kountz. . Please submit your abstract by September 30 to nemla.org/convention/2015/cfp.html#cfp15063

NeMLA 2015: Unexpected Affect in Shakespearean Drama

updated: 
Tuesday, June 10, 2014 - 9:31am
Northeast Modern Language Association

This panel will explore the ways in which Shakespearean drama delivers emotional intensity (passions, affectations, embodiment, etc.) in unexpected places. When might certain emotional reactions be surprising in Shakespeare's plays? Are there particular characters that share their feelings unexpectedly, yet with astonishing resonance?

The significance of this session is to explore whether, after four centuries of exposure, these can still be capable of emotionally shocking. In today's academic climate, do Shakespeare's words have the potential to be so emotionally disturbing that students might/can/should expect a "trigger warning" on syllabi?
