IMPENDING DEADLINE: Conflict and Catastrophe in the Long Eighteenth-Century 21-22 April (ABSTRACT DEADLINE: 1 April)

Thursday, March 29, 2012 - 9:05am
University of Cambridge

The eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries saw the eruption of violent conflict in the French and American revolutions, an industrial revolution sweep Britain, the prolonged hostilities of the Napoleonic wars, as well as the economic catastrophe of the South Sea Bubble. The period was also a time of upheaval in literature: philosophically, stylistically, generically and in the changing nature of the literary marketplace. Recent scholarship has continued to highlight the importance of political and intellectual debate to British literary output, as well as the battles taking place within literary circles and texts themselves.

Lorraine York & Katja Lee

Wayne Gretzky. Celine Dion. Rick Mercer. David Suzuki. Pierre Trudeau.

The list goes on and goes way back. Celebrity culture in Canada, although vastly under-estimated, continues to be a massive cultural and economic force to be reckoned with and such a reckoning is long overdue. This proposed edited collection seeks to uncover how celebrity operates in Canada when Canadian subjects, institutions, media, audiences and/or industries are involved.

Panel Description:

As Postmodernity has become the norm in culture, traditional boundaries among literary genres and other arts, technologies, and mass media have disappeared, infusing each other and blurring the boundaries that used to define them. This session explores this cross-discipline interaction through US or Canadian artistic and literary productions.

Please submit a short proposal (circa 500 words) by using the "Online Proposal Submission Form" link at www.pamla.org before April 22nd. Send questions or inquiries directly to lbelau@utpa.edu

Ymitri Mathison

According to the U.S. Census, in 2010 Asian Americans comprised of 18.5 million and 6% of the population. Constituted of several ethnicities and races, they are frequently lumped under one monolithic umbrella with their individual ethnicities reduced to catch-all terms of "Asian" or "Chinese" or "Indian." Yet, in spite of the many stereotypes attached to them, Asian American children and adolescents are constructing unique identities within the intersections of several communities and making their presence felt within American public spaces.

NEASECS 2012 Wesleyan University, CT: The Courtesan-Celebrity

updated: 
Monday, March 26, 2012 - 9:53pm
NEMLA

This panel invites papers that explore the period's textual engagement with female notoriety. Defoe's Roxana (1724), for example, follows the earlier tradition of the whore biography, reimagined as a spiritual autobiography. These "histories" of whores, written about and by women from both poor and privileged families, are unsparing in their social critique; these women's grievances include the lack of proper education for girls, abuse, poverty, incest, and sexual predation. Yet, a few "high-profile" courtesan-celebrities like Nell Gwynn and Kitty Fisher relished the limelight, and whose lives became popular and profitable subjects in the print market.
