This is a call for a proposed panel, which will explore new approaches to the study of the existentialist and absurdist movements in the 20th century. We invite proposals for papers that rethink these movements in light of recent scholarship related to gender, race, ecology, transnationalism, and immigration. We welcome papers that rethink issues at the heart of these two movements: the category of the Other, the search for meaning in the world and its environment, freedom and oppression, the political and the private. We are also interested in how these movements have been in dialogue with each other.

Magic and Literature

May 27-28, 2016

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Prof. Subir Dhar, Rabindra Bharati University

Magic pops up frequently in literature. Prospero's art, Keats's 'charm'd magic casements,' the satirical sylphs in Pope's The Rape of the Lock, Yeats's occultism are some examples. In English Studies, we deal with magic in classics as well as in popular literature: Homer and Apuleius, the Holy Grail, The Faerie Queene, the modern magical realists, J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, Ursula K. Le Guin, J.K. Rowling and others. We locate magic in the 'genial spirit' of the author; we identify magic as an object of desire, an enactment of words, or an enchanted place.

Wyndham Lewis's centrality in the 'little magazine' and periodical cultures of the early twentieth century is well established.
