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.

CFP: Midwest Modern Language Association, English III: English after 1900

The Midwest Modern Language Association English III: English after 1900 session invites essays for its session at the upcoming November 10-13, 2016 conference in St. Louis, MO.

The theme for the conference is "Border States." We encourage papers that consider this topic literally or figuratively. This approach lends itself not only to location but also to movement like immigration, and, additionally, states of otherness in its interpretation. Papers may address fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or drama.
