Socialist Side of World Literature

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 23, 2019

This proposal invites scholars to address the connection between Socialist Realism(s) and world literatures within and beyond the Soviet Union and the Cold War. As I. Anisimov stated in 1959 that, in the period following the October Revolution, the leading talents of world literature came to the side of the Socialist Revolution, since Socialist literatures associated with the new reality were rapidly developing not only in the Socialist world, but also in the capitalist world, where the best part of literature has joined battle to change reality. However, in the past decades the Socialist side of World Literature has not gotten the proper attention in World Literature studies.

Creating and Defining Multi-cultural American Identities

As a nation of settlers and immigrants, Americans often confront the possibility of claiming a mixed heritage, whether their ancestors have resided in the country for generations or they themselves are the first generation who have come from another country. Translating Rosemary Serra's study, Sense of Origins: Studies on the young Italian Americans of New York, I have confronted numerous interpretations of how the relationship between two countries (in this case Italy and America) constitutes an essential element of individual identity. Perhaps the most significant aspect is the extremely varied nature regarding how the individuals assign meaning to the term "Italian American."

Sunday, September 15, 2019

For this session, we seek proposals exploring the factors shaping nineteenth- and twentieth-/twenty-first-century literature (in its broad sense) about the Middle Ages as well as the differences in approaches to the Middle Ages in each century. What historical, social, and intellectual views shaped nineteenth-century approaches to the Middle Ages? In what ways were these views limited or biased based on what the Victorians knew and believed and did not know, particularly when compared to advances in historical, psychological, and political knowledge in the next centuries? Conversely, what shaped twentieth-/twenty-first-century views of the Middle Ages?

Irony, Humor, and Laughter in Italian Literature

NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

What is the relationship between irony and other literary techniques, including but not limited to humor? How do authors utilize irony and humor in their texts? Are humor and irony to be considered a literary tool to disguise a personal or political agenda? Or are they simply a resource to entertain their readers?

This panel seeks presentations that analyze or investigate the role of irony, humor, and laughter in texts from early modern to contemporary examples by Italian writers. This panel will provide participants with an opportunity to discuss various new and important perspectives on the use of humor and irony in Italian literature.
