RHYTHM, DURATION, PRESENCE (OCTOBER 2019)
Modern Horizons invites short abstracts for papers (of 25-30 minutes’ length) to be presented at our “Rhythm, Duration, Presence” conference to be held 25 October, 2019 in Toronto, Canada.
Following our 2018 conference on “Senses of Architecture” where the texture of form was of particular concern, Modern Horizons’ 9th annual conference wishes to address questions of tonality, rhythm, and forms of time in literature, art, cinema, music, and dance.
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?
Seeking final submissions for Octavia Butler’s Afrofuturistic Visions: Reframing Identity, Culture, and History. This edited collection is under contract with Lexington Books and slated for publication in 2020.

Call for Papers
Literature, film, and other forums for bearing witness to injustice can create space for voices that have been silenced. They can lead to the recognition of people subjected to human rights violations. As such, narratives of witness have the power to connect people across divisions of nation, culture, and experience. They may contribute to shared national and even transnational identities.
