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?

Abstracts are now being accepted for an edited collection on historical narratives and theoretical implications of how children and youth relate to political performances. By examining different avenues of youth participation in theatrical moments of nationalism, this book will engage in a dialogue about how children and/or youth involved with public events intersect political ideologies/practices. Therefore, we invite studies on theatre created by and/or for children and/or youth on themes of nationalism and politics, as well as studies into youth-driven/centered political performance in the broader sense, from parades to protest movements.
Just passed her 300th birthday, the popularity of Sarah Fielding is increasing; yet, her life and writing tend to be overshadowed by the critical reception of her brother, Henry. This panel seeks to advance the conversation surrounding Sarah Fielding, especially as it relates to new approaches on themes of gender, nature, trauma, and psychology in her work. Furthermore, papers which focus on teaching Fielding are encouraged.
Please send abstracts of approximately 250 words and a 1-page CV to Stephanie Harper Recine (firstname.lastname@example.org) by September 15th, 2012.
