MLA Austin 2016 Special Session: More-Than-Human Publics in Nineteenth-Century English Literature

full name / name of organization: 
Shun Yin Kiang/ Northeastern University

Possible topics: animal-human encounters, pastoral or colonial representations of ecologies/life words, and narratives and poetics of living in common(s). We especially welcome papers attending to the affective, everyday nature of more-than-huamn encounters and eco-spheres, as invoked/mediated in Romantic poetry and Victorian fiction. The diverse, if diffuse, impact this period's representations of more-than-human publics have on contemporary or subsequent readings of nineteenth-century England and its empire, and, more broadly, on animating new relations/approaches to postcolonial studies, green studies, bio-politics, more-than-humanism, etc., are of particular interest to this panel.

In a time when even Bridget Jones finds herself in her early fifties, it may at first glance seem unwarranted to speak of the invisibility of ageing women in literary and cultural contexts. In fact, in a review of Mad about the Boy in The Times, Sarah Lyall writes that, "Bridget's amorous adventures … make the prospect of middle age not so bad at all". Constructions like this open up questions about representations of women and ageing. What types of images of the "ageing woman" are created in cultural texts? Do women in later life, in order to become visible, need to find ways to "pass" as younger so that "age shall not wither them" as Kira Cochraine puts it in an article in The Guardian?

"In the arts, feeling is always meaning" –Henry James

The turn toward a critical engagement with feeling has given literary studies a new way of reading the relationships between text and its subject, context, and reader. But how does it answer aesthetic questions about form?
