[UPDATE] ACLA Panel: "All In the Family: The Literary and Cultural Politics of Incest" - SEPTEMBER 23

updated: 
Friday, September 11, 2015 - 11:40am
ACLA: American Comparative Literature Association

On this panel, we would like to consider the concept of incest in relation to society across a number of time periods and cultural forms. Incest may stem from an impulse to purity–keeping bloodlines clean and families insular–and at the same time it may result in deformity and monstrosity. Regardless of the character of an incestuous liaison, incest is in every instance bound up with the patriarchal, heteronormative social structure of the family, either disrupting this order or constituting it.

ALCA 2016 - Serial Forms Seminar (March 17-20, 2016, Harvard University)

updated: 
Thursday, September 10, 2015 - 12:07pm
Dr. Anna Gibson, Duquesne University / American Comparative Literature Association Conference 2016

In response to an echoing call for a renewed attention to form, this seminar will examine a particularly rich formal classification: the serial. Conceiving of serial form broadly to encompass a variety of sequential and collected narratives, from installments and episodes to versions, revisions, witnesses, releases, copies, variations, collections, and cycles, we will ask how narratives in parts challenge and invigorate our critical approaches to narrative form. While criticism of serial form tends to center on Charles Dickens and look forward to twentieth-century radio and television, the formal conventions of seriality – the sequence and collection of narratives – extends far beyond this fictional field.

ACLA 2016, The Subject Positions of Religion, Literature, and Ethics

Kitty Millet, ICLA Research Committee on Religion, Ethics, and Literature

For the American Comparative Literature Association (ACLA) Conference, March 17-20, 2016, Harvard University

In 2014, "Religion, Ethics, and Literature" became a new research committee of the International Comparative Literature Association (ICLA). Its members adhere to a range of scholarly perspectives that represent not only philosophical, but also cultural divergences. While scholars within the group focus their attention on multiple literatures, their perspectives can be grouped under three basic positions, all of which depict how the faculties interact with each other because of the convergence of religion, ethics, and literature.
