In his Apology for Poetry, Sir Philip Sidney defines poetry as "an art of imitation", a form of "mimesis"; he describes it as not only a "representing, counterfeiting, or figuring forth" but more importantly as a "speaking picture." This attribution of aural and visual elements to the poet's pen delineates poetry as a medium able to integrate seemingly disparate elements: a site of necessary hybridity. As a "speaking picture", poetry mirrors the visual arts by imagistically portraying the verba (signifier) or form which conveys, transmutes, or mimics the res (signified) or Platonic Idea. The visual arts, which mirror or embody the spoken word, serve to access this elusive signified.

Panel Proposal, MSA 2010
The Foreign Language Film Conference (see former post on the conference: http://call-for-papers.sas.upenn.edu/node/36707) focuses its attention this year on genre, and this panel subsequently turns to a hybrid genre of the postmodern period: the satiric noir. While it has no official name (we could call it obscurité humour, humour noir, noir comedy etc.), the genre certainly exists.

This panel seeks to examine the roles of multilingualisms, accents, dialects, and inflections within and upon the national project, as well as the effects of gendered experience on nationalist constructs.
This panel welcomes papers from a wide variety of disciplines and scholarly perspectives,including pedagogy and the interdisciplines.

(Re)Constructing the American West
The fourteenth-century allegorical trilogy composed by the Cistercian monk, Guillaume de Digulleville (or Deguileville) -- the Pèlerinage de la vie humaine [Pilgrimage of Human Life], Pèlerinage de l'âme [Pilgrimage of the Soul], and Pèlerinage de Jhesucrist [Pilgrimage of Jesus Christ] -- travelled widely across the medieval and early modern world. Digulleville's trilogy first allegorizes human life as a pilgrimage, then envisions a journey through the afterlife as another form of pilgrimage, and finally recasts the narrative of the Christian gospels as a story of divine pilgrimage on earth. Addressed to men and women, both rich and poor, Digulleville's pilgrimage allegories were recopied and illuminated with remarkable frequency during the Middle Ages.
