Creating and Un-creating the World in the Romantic Imagination

Friday, April 8, 2016 - 3:02pm
full name / name of organization: 
SAMLA

The Romantics era was rife with social and economic shifts and imbalances as the Industrial Revolution brought destruction to the natural world and further stratification of the classes. In this increasingly dystopian climate, Romantic authors often sought an idyllic nature in which to imbue their utopian views; as such, the Romantic imagination became a mechanism through which authors essentially deconstructed the dystopian world and created the utopian imagination. Conversely, the Romantics sometimes deconstructed the utopian environment as a means to express the dystopian imagination.

CFP: thresholds no. 1, Extraneous

Thursday, April 7, 2016 - 5:31am
full name / name of organization: 
Fran McDonald, Whitney Trettien

thresholds is a new digital journal co-edited by Whitney Trettien (UNC) and Fran McDonald (U. Louisville). The journal's platform bears witness to the dynamic processes that constitute reading and writing by way of a split-screen architecture. On the left side of the screen, we publish short essays (essayer – trial, attempt, test). The right side of the screen is populated by the various text fragments, images, audio, and video clips that inspired the author and propelled the corresponding work. Unlike a footnote or endnote, these fragments are not explicitly harnessed to the essay's main body; they do not rustle the reader toward a specific interpretative conclusion.
