CFP: Temporal Discombobulations: Time and the Experience of the Gothic

Gothic Temporalities Group in conjunction with the University of Surrey

Our experience of the Gothic is one founded in time. Whether it is of a past that will not or cannot die, multiple presents that can never resolved, or infinite futures that can never be realised it speaks of a temporal excess that refuses to be contained.

Proposals are invited for papers ruminating on aspects of digestion in early modern literature, culture, and medicine. Participants might consider, for example, the relationship between literal and figurative digestion in the context of theories about the nexus of body and language more generally; the relationship between digestion and cognition or emotion; the ideological underpinnings of discourses of specific digestive organs or aspects of digestion like assimilation, excretion, indigestion, or vomiting; or the significance of specific kinds of digestion, like anthropophagy, to identity. Papers might also explore medical texts by writers like Sanctorius, Paracelsus, or Van Helmont.

Hillary Eklund / New Orleans Review / Loyola University New Orleans

Four centuries after William Shakespeare's death, his name ennobles a variety of cultural institutions, from libraries and endowed chairs to summer camps and rubber duckies. Even as these structures—both lofty and lowly—rise and fall, we bear witness to the greatest power Shakespeare described: that of poetry itself to preserve without rigidity, to endure without sameness, and to inspire without dominance. Beyond the array of institutions that bear his name, what conversations do Shakespeare's eternal lines animate now?

In 1925, the editors of Quarto Stato questioned the forms in which the Turin communists were addressing the "Southern Question," critical of how Italy's unification in 1870 resulted in advanced industry and agriculture in the North and the reinstatement of traditions of feudalism in the South. In Antonio Gramsci's reading, the move of the Turin communists was far from dividing the country but instead was based on creating alliances between the workers from the North and the peasants from the South as a strategy for revolution. In 2015, with austerity crippling southern Europe countries, what old and new "Southern Questions" are shaping the long history of inequality in the very idea of south?
