CFP: Modernists and Science (9/1/05; 20th-C. Lit., 2/23/06-2/25/06)

20th Century Literature & Culture Conference

Proposed Panel: Modernists Authors, Scientific Discourses

We are seeking a third paper for a proposed TCLC panel.

Currently, two papers look at how Modernist writers engage with contemporary
scientific discourses (eugenics, evolutionary theories) that attempt to
explain human behavior and development. These papers locate the site of
these discussions in rural America: Erskine Caldwell in the South and
Conrad Richter in the Ohio River Valley.

Although we are looking for a paper that seems to be a good "fit" for the
panel, we welcome any approach to this admittedly broad topic.

The Medieval Romance Society invites abstracts on the subject of Health and
Healing in Medieval Romance for presentation at the Forty-first
International Congress on Medieval Studies in May 2006. In the past decade,
scholarship has made significant contributions to the study of medieval
health and medicine. What has yet to be fully explored, however, is how
these concepts are manifested in popular literary works. Where does the
medical concept of the disease of love come into play in the literature?
What is the scientific explanation of "magical healing"? This session seeks
to explore how notions of health and healing inform, or are informed by,
