CFP: Literature and Photography Special Issue, September 17, 2012

LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory

How do you "see" literature? How do you "write" photography? In recent years, scholars have drawn a connection between the nineteenth-century realist novel and the rise of photography, suggesting that the novel genre is intrinsically photographic. This argument hinges, in part, on realism, or at the very least on reality effects. Nineteenth-century photography was indeed often used to document: to record landscapes, cityscapes, portraits, and crime scenes. Yet it was also from the start a creative technology, a mode of representation open to experimentation and artistic innovation. How does photography intersect with literature when the aims of one or both are not to represent reality?

Furthermore, papers which focus on teaching Fielding are encouraged.

NeMLA (Boston Mar. 21-24, 2013): Intertextuality in Golden Age Spain

updated: 
Wednesday, August 22, 2012 - 1:10pm
Gregory Baum / The University of Chicago

Renaissance texts, both in Spain and in Europe more generally, were deeply aware of their own relatedness. This panel seeks to explore what can be recuperated by granting these intertextual links a larger place in our account of literature in the Spanish Golden Age. Translations, adaptations, reprints, and sequels, among other things, all offer new insights into the way texts were read and understood. Studies of intersemiotic connections are also welcome. Please send 300 word abstracts by September 30, 2012, to Gregory Baum at glbaum@uchicago.edu.
