According to Darcy Ribeiro (1995), the Brazilian people have religiosity as a cornerstone of its culture. It not only played a large role in its “civilizatory” process, but also stimulated resistance movements, among which are the ones in Canudos, Bahia, and Lagoinha, Goiás. Religion has remained a strong identity feature through all of Brazilian history and, still today, it is the center of relevant social conflicts. Nevertheless, there is, in the Brazilian literary scene, very little space dedicated to the study of the representation of individuals and/or religious doctrines. The academy, thus, fosters the shunning of literary works bearing relationship with the mystic, the religious or, anything, in any way, connected with the sacred.

"The Global Trajectories of Asian Modernism" @ MSA Brooklyn

The Modernist Studies in Asia (MSIA) research network is proposing an affiliated panel at the MSA conference in Brooklyn, October 22–25.

Global and planetary modernisms tend to map different modernisms according to countries and continents, implicitly imposing a static, area studies–inflected order on these divergent and discrepant artists, texts, and practices. Against this tendency, for this panel we seek papers that trace surprising movements of modernism (broadly understood) within, across, and beyond Asia. Put another way, we are interested in accounts of how Asian modernism won't stay still.

Digital Methodology in the Linguistic Study of Literature: Practice

Linguistics and Literature Forum Session 2

MLA 2021 Annual Convention, Toronto, Jan 7-10

Digital tools have become increasingly more important in the linguistic study of literature; for instance, they allow us to streamline much of our work. In what ways have digital methods made your work easier or more efficient? Do some tools lend themselves better to particular problems? What best practices have scholars found as they manage programs and data?

Digital Methodology in the Linguistic Study of Literature: Theory

Linguistics and Literature Forum Session 1

MLA 2021 Annual Convention, Toronto, Jan 7-10

Digital tools have indisputably made many tasks in the linguistic study of literature much easier and faster than used to be. But the turn to digital methods has brought more than ease and efficiency; it has forever changed the field. What are the ways in which digital tools have shaped the linguistic study of literature? And what are the ways literary studies has itself inspired innovation, methods, and the development of new digital tools?

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 15, 2020

Considerable research has been devoted to Fyodor Dostoevsky's incorporation of non-Russian art and texts as inspiration for his writing. Comparatively less attention, however, has been to paid to the immense influence the author's own life and works have had on literature, drama, philosophy, and art. This panel seeks to explore Dostoevsky's reception, as a man and as an author, by 20th and 21st century world writers and artists. It is co-sponsored by the International Dostoevsky Society and the Reception Study Society in celebration of the author's 200th year.
