In response to the sustained scholarly focus on the material aspects of eighteenth century culture, the core concern of this interdisciplinary, bilingual (English and French) conference will be reactions to instability in the material realm, including but not limited to the emergence of an affective public sphere; a revaluation of labour; cosmopolitanism; sensibility; the new spiritualism; political radicalism and rights discourse; supernaturalism and the rise of the gothic; and anti-slavery and anti-imperial movements. Papers on these and any topics related to the material and the immaterial in the period will be welcomed.

Seeking Articles for an Edited Volume on Women Writers and Psychoanalysis

updated: 
Thursday, January 20, 2011 - 3:30pm
Cambridge Scholars Press

I'm seeking article submissions for a volume of critical essays, which will be published by Cambridge Scholars Press. The collection will focus on twentieth-century female writers' responses to the work of Sigmund Freud with a particular emphasis on alternative models of the psychoanalytic process posed by women. The book will move beyond critiques of Freud and his influence on twentieth century ideas about gender, demonstrating instead the ways women writers have reclaimed agency through the artistic process. With that in mind, the essays selected for publication will address the following topics:

Virginia Woolf: The Individual and the Group, PAMLA 2011 (deadline Mar. 20)

updated: 
Thursday, January 20, 2011 - 12:36pm
Session organizer: Judith Paltin/ UC Santa Barbara

Woolf's novels and essays often sustain a central tension between individuals' freedoms or agency and what they perceive groups to demand of them. For example, A Room of One's Own displays the tensions between intellectual freedom and the mind of the crowd, while Orlando wrestles in ambushes set up by means of unstable identity categories. This approved special session looks for papers that discuss Woolf's concerns about the impact of group life on her characters, or that place her literary agonists in proximity to group-driven events and trends between the wars.
