CFP The Legacy of the Will - JNR Special Issue. Deadline: March 2012

updated: 
Monday, September 12, 2011 - 5:37am
Journal of the Northern Renaissance

The semantic slipperiness of 'will' fascinated the Renaissance: in all manner of texts of the period we find 'Will too boote, and Will in over-plus'. The structural conceit of the opening lines of John Donne's poem, 'The Will', exemplifies a key thematic construct to be found in much early modern literature and a prevalent intellectual thread in the culture from which this literature emerges: 'Before I sigh my last gasp, let me breath / Great Love, some legacies'. This poem – this willed enactment of the speaker's last will and testament to the world he will shortly leave behind – encapsulates the polyvocal qualities of the human 'will' and all that it signifies.

updated: 
Friday, September 9, 2011 - 9:59pm
NEMLA

This panel seeks to explore various dimensions of pain in French and Francophone literature. How is pain represented? What are the moral, aesthetic, and epistemological stakes of such representation? Does the staging of pain shape or distress textual integrity or architecture? Might we speak of a textual pain? How do pained and painful narratives affect the reader? Please send 300-word abstracts by September 30 to Tali Zechory, tzechory@fas.harvard.edu.
