Interdisciplinary Conventions: Literature and Philosophy, PAMLA 2010 (deadline April 5)

updated: 
Sunday, March 14, 2010 - 8:27pm
Jonathan Lee, UC Riverside

This special session at PAMLA 2010 will investigate the soft boundary between Literature and Philosophy by probing how the narrative conventions of the two forms use language to construct significance(s). In what ways do the vocabulary, contexts, connotations, and purposes of these forms converge and/or diverge? How can we stimulate a productive conversation between them?

All manner of approaches and topics are welcome. Presenters may perform close readings of philosophical or literary texts or may engage exclusively with philosophy or literary theory.

Women's Resistance in Early Modern England (abstracts April 15, 2010)

updated: 
Thursday, March 11, 2010 - 7:34pm
RSA 2011 Montreal; March 24-26/Renaissance Society of America:

Early Modern England was a benchmark for literary and political activity by women, from Anne Askew's Examinations in the first half of the sixteenth century to Anna Trapnel's political prophecies in the final decades of the seventeenth. While the lengthy reign and potency of Elizabeth I (1558-1603) certainly set a precedent for early modern women's writing, texts by women played a significant political role well before and after her rule, and arguably found their apogee in the ideological fervor that surrounded the reigns of her Stuart successors. More importantly, women authors actively participated in the early modern public sphere at a time when magistrates and divines were striving to situate women within the realm of the household.
