*Extended Deadline* 31 December 2019
We invite proposals for monographs or edited volumes for our Series in Literary Studies.
Literary studies is one of the richest and most interdisciplinary fields of study, encompassing a wide array of valid approaches, from the historical, to the theoretical, to the experimental. Broadly speaking, works of literary scholarship aim to change or enhance the way we read texts by investigating their complexity.
We are particularly interested in books on English Literature, although we are open to proposals which examine any type of world literature.
The scope of the present call is broad. Possible topics include (non-comprehensive list):
The Song of Songs in European Poetry (13th-17th Centuries)
Translations, Appropriations, Rewritings
University of Padova, 29-30 June 2020
51st Northeast Modern Language Association Convention
March 5-8, 2020
This two-day conference will explore connections between theatrical and non-theatrical texts in early modern England. Theatrical culture functioned in vibrant relation to both non-theatrical performances (such as sermons and entertainments) and non-dramatic poetry and prose. However, moments of exchange between different genres have too often been obscured by disciplinary silos.
By bringing together scholars with a wide variety of interests the conference will open up new research questions which address the creative exchanges between plays and a wide range of non-theatrical texts and performances.
Topics for consideration might include:
The South-Central Renaissance Conference (SCRC) and its affiliate societies
Queen Elizabeth I Society
Andrew Marvell Society
Society for Renaissance Art History
invite conference papers for
Exploring the Renaissance 2020
March 26-28, 2020
Southern Methodist University
ICMS KALAMAZOO 2020: MEDIEVAL HABITS
This panel invites 15-20 minute papers concerned with medieval notions of habit.
The College English Association’s 51st national conference, from March 26-28, 2020, will be held on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, where the tides shape the land and the culture, from food and drink to music and literature. CEA invites proposals from academics specializing in Medieval and Early Modern literature or cultural studies. We are especially interested in presentations that feature topics relating to tides in texts, disciplines, people, culture, media, and pedagogy. But in addition to our conference theme, we also welcome proposals on other topics within these two fields of study.
Since the 2016 election, there has been much soul searching in certain progressive circles about the role that identity should play in liberal politics in the United States and beyond. Authors as diverse as Kwame Anthony Appiah, Francis Fukuyama, Mark Lilla, and David Wootton have recently urged us to consider the possibility of constructing a form of liberalism in which identity does not necessarily play a central role. In the writings of at least some of these authors, we may discern a desire to recover the heritage of classical liberalism, with its emphasis on abstract individualism and the importance of so-called “negative” freedoms, such as freedom of speech.
