Theoretical Approaches to Andrew Marvell

Marvell Studies seeks articles using and/or arguing for fresh theoretical approaches to the study of Andrew Marvell. Possible approaches might include—but need not be limited to—eco-criticism, queer theory, disability studies, political theory, and the ways in which these approaches alter our understanding of politics, futurity, nature, and life in Marvell’s poetry and prose.

500-word abstracts are due by September 15, 2017. Manuscripts will be due April 15, 2018. Article length is flexible.

Please direct submissions and any questions to Ben LaBreche (blabrech@umw.edu) or Ryan Netzley (rnetzley@siu.edu).

REMINDER ABSTRACTS DUE: 11/01/2017The Theme

As researchers, no matter our subject, we commit ourselves to a process of generating, analysing and debating ideas. In working towards completion, we continue to gather and negotiate an increasing number of ideas, always looking to constellate them in rich and innovative ways. As these constellations expand and contract, as the ideas fall in and out of view, the documents we retain begin to record a far more expansive sphere of possibility than can be accounted for in a single thesis.

Techniques & Perspectives on the Analysis of Film

Under the Light
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Under the Light is focused mostly on discussing and reviewing indie and foreign films, but we are not limited to this. We'd like to create a sort of guide on how to approach films when analyzing and reviewing them (where the analysis or review will be academic in scope). There are books out there on this already, but we'd like to have more genre-specific papers for our guide. Here are just some possibilities:

  • The aesthetics of the grotesque in horror film
  • Looking at a foreign film through the lens of the respective culture and society
  • Psychoanalysis and film
  • Film as ecocriticism; ecology within film

 

Articles can be more general than this, or maybe even more specific (but just slightly so).

“One can get to the figure by making clear that every discourse possesses its counterpart, the object of which it speaks, which is over there, like what it designates in a horizon: sight on the edge of discourse.” —Jean-François Lyotard, Discourse, Figure, 7.

 

“Perhaps it is no more than an accident that in our two oldest examples figura occurs in combination with nova; but even if accidental, it is significant, for the notion of the new manifestation, the changing aspect, of the permanent runs through the whole history of the word.” —Erich Auerbach, “Figura,” Scenes from the Drama of European Literature, 12.
