"Stuff and Stuffing" (24-27 May 2014 at Brock University): Submissions due 1 Nov 2013

Saturday, September 28, 2013 - 1:56pm
Joint Session: Victorian Studies Association of Ontario (VSAO) at ACCUTE

Henry James' infamous condemnation of nineteenth-century novels as "loose baggy monsters" is so perfectly devastating that many forget that the author was posing a question. Flummoxed by a literary form that so readily included "the accidental and the arbitrary" in its representations, James pondered: what do they "artistically mean?" Walter Benjamin, another modern looking back on the nineteenth century with a sense of bewilderment, suggested elliptically that the swollen cushions, ample hangings, and profusion of dust covers, doilies, and antimacassars of the nineteenth-century interior were evidence of a deeply ingrained "posture...of struggle and defense."

Paraic Finnerty (University of Portsmouth) / EDIS

The 2014 American Literature Association Annual Conference(ALA) will be held in Washington, D.C., May 22-25, 2014.

The Emily Dickinson International Society will sponsor two sessions at the ALA:

1) Transatlantic Dickinson
We welcome papers that consider Dickinson as a writer whose life and work question the convention of reading nineteenth-century US literature in isolation from its British counterpart, and demonstrate the importance of taking a comparative approach. For example, panellists might examine the influence of British literature, culture and history on Dickinson, or the reception of Dickinson's work in Britain.
