Call for Chapters: Liberating Herself: Emancipationist Writing at the Fin de Siècle

updated: 
Monday, March 20, 2017 - 1:29pm
Cambridge Scholars Publishing
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, April 1, 2017

The second half of the nineteenth century was marked by the emergence of the global women’s movement. Feminism altered the course of literature by challenging those literary conventions that governed the portrayal of women and women's experience at the fin de siècle. Feminist texts explicitly advocated social change and discussed new women’s roles in society. This edited volume Liberating Herself: Emancipationist Writing at the Fin de Siècle (under contract with Cambridge Scholars Publishing) welcomes contributions on any aspect of nineteenth-century literary feminism. Comparative approaches are welcome. By April 1, please submit a 250-300 word abstract and your CV to Dr.

Aesthetics and Form in Victorian Art, Literature, and Culture

October 28, 2017, 8:30-5:30pm 

“It is not enough that it has the Form, if it have not also the power and life. It is not enough that it has the Power, if it have not the form. We must therefore inquire into each of these characters successively; and determine first, what is the Mental Expression, and secondly, what the Material Form.” John Ruskin, The Nature of Gothic IV.183.

UPDATED: MLA 2018 Special Session: Catholicism’s Gothic Legacy

updated:

Geremy Carnes
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This proposed MLA 2018 (January 4-7, NYC) session seeks papers that address the relationship between Catholicism and English Gothic literature in ways that move beyond simplistic observations of the genre’s use of anti-Catholic tropes. Especially welcome are papers that situate Gothic literature in the history of English Catholicism or which approach the religious content and contexts of Gothic literature from “post-secular” points of view. Papers might examine anything from 18th- and early 19th-century Catholicism’s influence on the rise of Gothic literature, to the lingering anti-Catholicism (or, conversely, Catholic nostalgia) in 21st-century Gothic literature and/or film, or anything in between.
