PAMLA 2016 Special Session Panel--Pasadena, CA

updated: 
Wednesday, February 10, 2016 - 6:48pm
full name / name of organization: 
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association Annual Conference 2016

This panel is devoted to the porous, permeable body in Romantic and Victorian Literature and seeks to better understand the boundaries of identity constructed in the bodies of texts from these periods and the bodies of readers. This panel will intervene both in conceptions of disembodied Romantic imaginings and in ideas of fixed, stable identity that may seem to mark these periods. By making the body and its interactions with space central to these discussions, we hope to demonstrate the ways in which boundaries of identity are fluid, undefined, and open to reinterpretation at the same time that they are intensely visceral.

MLA 2017 Special Session: Monster Studies: Literature, Culture, and Theory (Deadline 3/10/16)

updated: 
Tuesday, February 9, 2016 - 2:41pm
full name / name of organization: 
Chris Koenig-Woodyard / University of Toronto

This is a call for abstracts for a proposed special session on "Monster Studies" for the MLA in Philadelphia, 5-8 January, 2017. Abstracts are due on Friday, 11 March, 2016, and proposals for special MLA sessions are due on 1 April, 2016. Thus there are two rounds of acceptance: abstracts for a hoped-for panel, and the official acceptance of the panel for the 2017 MLA.

The proposed session will explore and expand the depth and breadth of the emerging field of "Monster Studies." Papers can explore monsters and the monstrous as the primary focus of scholarly inquiry in literary, humanities and cultural studies, and as a secondary focus--that is, as a pedagogical tool or method, for instance, in teaching composition and the humanities.
