The Sixteenth Annual Meeting of the Group for Early Modern Cultural Studies; October 22-25, 2009; Dallas, Texas
In keeping with the GEMCS conference's theme of "tracing footprints," this panel explores how a text's literary ancestors affected the conception, production, and/or dissemination of that text. Papers should examine the impact of textual predecessors on a specific work or body of work, or papers could address how one author's work directly influenced another's. Papers that address all genres and historical periods related to early modern studies are welcome.
Adoption has often, though not always, involved secrecy. How has secrecy or openness affected the history, experience, and representations of adoption? How have literature and film portrayed the impact of secrecy and disclosure on adoptees, birthparents, adoptive parents? What is the impact of recent revelations of secret histories in memoir, books such as _The Girls Who Went Away_, documentaries such as _First Person Plural_ (the creators of both will be keynote speakers)? How and why did adoption secrecy, and the practices it hides, develop differently in different cultures, countries, and even different states? Where are alternatives to secrecy practiced and how do they work?
"Journal on Interdisciplinary Studies in Humanities" calls for papers for the second issue on the following areas: English Literature, Literature written in other languages, Postcolonial Literature, Critical theories, Aesthetic Studies, Literature and environment, Visual arts, Photography, Digital arts, Philosophy and Art, History of Art.
