Roots and Radicalisms: Literature, Theory and Praxis

Jean Baudrillard's claim from The Illusion of the End (1992) that history "has become a dustbin. It has become its own dustbin, just as the planet itself is becoming its own dustbin" signals a millennialist angst that proclaims the exhaustion of ideas and the end of historical "progress." And yet, as the significant worldwide political upheavals of the past year attest, global citizens are not yet entirely resigned to living in and among dustbins. Is it possible that we are experiencing a widespread reemergence of radical thinking and action?

Call for Papers: The Male Body in Medicine and Literature (ed. by Greta Depledge and Andrew Mangham)

Following the success of the recent collection The Female Body in Medicine and Literature (LUP 2011) Liverpool University Press have commissioned a companion volume entitled The Male Body in Medicine and Literature. This new collection will provide interdisciplinary essays that will explore the complex intersections between literature and the medical treatment of the male body. We wish to consider the wider cultural ramifications of the representation of the male body, health, sickness, masculinity and 'manhood' in order to further our understanding of gender studies, gender politics, science, medicine and literature.

The Challenges of Late Modernism

MSA 14: Modernism and Spectacle (Las Vegas, Oct 18-21 2012)
contact email: 

This proposed panel seeks to examine the phenomenon of late modernism - is there such a thing, and how do we define it? Is it an analytically useful concept or should we think of another way of categorizing literature written after high modernism. Are there particular technological, social or political values that underpin late modernist writing? Can the concept of late modernism be extended beyond the Anglo-American world? Papers looking at either late modernism in a theoretical perspective or evaluations of individual late modernist authors are encouraged.

Please send a proposal (300 words) and a brief bio by 15 March to Marius.Hentea@UGent.be.

Literature and Religion panel at PAMLA seeks papers that address how questions of faith have shaped literary works and cultural meanings. In particular, it welcomes papers that address the topic of sanctuary and sacred space. How do literary texts represent sanctuary and sacred space? What is the role of memory in creating sacred space? What is the relationship between physical place and sacred space? How does one's experience of suffering contribute to the creation of sanctuary and sacred space? How do migration, immigration and movement impact the construction of sacred space?

The conference will take place at Seattle University, Washington from October 19-21, 2012.

Submission Deadline: Saturday March 31, 2012.

We invite contributions to an edited volume tentatively titled DISOBEDIENT PRACTICES: TEXTUAL MULTIPLICITY IN MEDIEVAL AND GOLDEN AGE SPAIN. We intend this volume to add to the conversation about the interplay of literary practices and forms of civil disobedience.

More specifically, this project seeks to explore the ways in which textual multiplicity threatens (state-sponsored attempts at) political unification in medieval and early modern Spain.
