English I (Medieval) Regular Session at 2014 SAMLA Conference (Atlanta)

Sustainability is the theme of this year's SAMLA conference; however, it is a concept that would have been unknown in the Anglo-Saxon Age, at least as we now define and use the term. But certainly the preservation of learning, the care, copying and circulation of manuscripts, and the conservation and recirculation of material culture (including relics) were persistent and continuous activities during this period. This session invites papers that deal with any of these topics or any other aspect of the Anglo-Saxon period.

"To The Lighthouse: The Times Are A-Changing"

This paper concerns itself with the "Time Passes" section in Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse. Arguably, the middle section functions as the enlacing center between "The Window" and "The Lighthouse," while recording the passing of time and walking the reader through the passing of time with serenity. In short, the concern of this study is to demonstrate how "Time Passes" completes the meaning of the other two sections, and enriches the novel. (1) Unlike the other two sections, the readerly quality of "Time Passes" creates a type of passive readership that (a) receives a comprehensive view (almost virtual and panoramic) of the narrative, and (b) receives fully formed meaning through which analysis (deconstruction of meaning) is possible.

Special Issue of Shakespeare: Adaptation and Early Modern Culture: Shakespeare and Beyond. Deadline 15 September 2014.

Adaptation and early modern culture have provided a particularly fruitful area of study in recent years. Yet very often such studies have tended to focus primarily on Shakespeare and on film. The purpose of this special issue of Shakespeare, the journal of the British Shakespeare Association, is not only to add to this focus, but to expand it. The title of the issue has been chosen to allow a wide field of exploration for contributors, including as it does both adaptation in early modern culture, and adaptation of early modern culture in later periods.
