CFP: Affect and Sympathy in Romanticism (3/15/06; MLA '06)

Affect and Sympathy in Romanticism

Special session to be proposed for the MLA Annual Convention 2006 in
Philadelphia, PA

The idea of the autonomous individual in the Romantic period emerged
together with a notion of autonomous affects—of affects that are
created by the individual, rather than being caused by sensual
stimuli. How is it possible for an individual to create its own
affects (feelings or moods)? How could such autonomous affects be
conveyed to others? Would they have to be recreated by the others?
If yes, would such creative affective transfer threaten the notion of
sympathy, of feeling together? What is the relationship between
affect and sympathy in Romanticism?

Old Books, New Media: Using Technology to teach Pre-1900 Texts
 
With the advent of computer classrooms, web-based archives, digital storytelling, and a host of other technological marvels, technology in the literature classroom has moved beyond the occasional Zeffirelli or Merchant Ivory film to encompass a wide range of problems and possibilities for teachers and students alike.

ROMANTICISM, ENVIRONMENT, CRISIS

23-27 June 2006
Centre for Romantic Studies
University of Wales, Aberystwyth

CALL FOR PAPERS

"Romanticism, Environment, Crisis" will highlight the continuing urgency
of the Romantic text at a time when changes in our biosphere threaten to
realize Romanticism's prophetic anxieties, its darkest imaginings.

Ecocriticism has found Romanticism to be crucial ground. How do green
readings of Romantic texts help us understand contemporary environmental
crisis? What is the relation between ecocriticism and environmentalism,
between literature and science?

CFP: English IV: Romantic and Victorian Literature (3/1/06; SAMLA, 11/10/06-11/12/06)

Lee Anna Maynard

The English IV section (Romantic and Victorian Literature) at SAMLA
seeks papers on "The Child-Woman in Romantic and
Victorian Literature."

In texts from the late eighteenth through the late nineteenth
centuries, women are often given characteristics simultaneously
childlike and sexualized. Poems, novels, conduct books, and visual
arts of the Romantic and Victorian periods accept, foster, and
sometimes interrogate this conflation of the unripe and forbidden
with the sexually desirable. We welcome proposals analyzing the
interplay of these aesthetic and cultural values in Romantic and
Victorian literature.
