English IV: 19th Century British Literature Panel

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 31, 2018

The 75th annual South Central Modern Language Association convention will be held in San Antonio, Texas from October 11-14 at the historic Menger Hotel on the River Walk, right next door to the Alamo. San Antonio is the perfect city for this year’s theme, “Crossroads of Cultures.” Through the art, architecture and design of the city, it is evident that there were, and are, different cultures crossing paths and influencing each other, now and over the past several centuries. San Antonio is a cultural kaleidoscope that began with the native indigenous peoples who made their home here. The arrival of the Spanish people and, later, the Anglos, resulted in a new culture that permeates almost every place in the United States: the Hispanic American culture.

The Charge of the Light Brigade: Half a Century Onward

A One-Day Symposium

Friday 18 May 2018, The Void Cinema, Sheffield Hallam University

 

Next year sees the fiftieth anniversary of the release of Woodfall Films’ epic production The Charge of the Light Brigade. While the film suffered from director Tony Richardson’s fractious relationship with the critics when it first appeared, it has subsequently assumed a totemic significance in British cinema history, embracing the anti-imperial values of the 1960s counter-culture in its depiction of one of the great disasters of British military history.

Victorian Animal Encounters: A one day conference University of Portsmouth UK, 4 May 2018  Keynote speaker: Dr Jane Hamlett, Royal Holloway “I went to show my friend Pigott the grave of the illustrious Shelley. Approaching the resting-place of the divine poet in a bright sunlight, the finest black Tom you ever saw discovered at an incredible distance that a catanthropist had entered the cemetery—rushed up at a gallop with his tail at right-angles to his spine—turned over on his back with his four paws in the air, and said in the language of cats: ‘Shelley be hanged! Come and tickle me!’ I stooped and tickled him. We were both profoundly affected.” (Wilkie Collins, letter to his mother, 1866).

Reading Walter de la Mare, 1873-1956:
‘a voice which has no fellow’

 

20th –21st  September 2018, University of Cambridge

By whom, and by what means, was this designed?
The whispered incantation which allows
Free passage to the phantoms of the mind?
                                        . . .
By the delicate, invisible web you wove —
The inexplicable mystery of sound.

 

               — From T. S. Eliot, ‘To Walter de la Mare’
