[UPDATE] Submission Deadline Extended to May 1st. 'Love that Moves the Sun and Other Stars': Exploring the Virtues in Literature

updated: 
Friday, March 22, 2013 - 3:32pm
Holly Ordway / Houston Baptist University

From the classical period to today, the virtues have served as a means of self-examination, a guide for self-reflection, a pattern for living a good life, and an inspiration for literary composition. For Christians, the virtues have the added dimension of being rooted in the revelation of God's character. This re-orientation of the understanding of virtue means that pursuing virtue can be a spiritual discipline as well as a form of witness.
Literature provides a powerful means of reflecting on what virtue is, how the expression of particular virtues shapes actions and character, and what a virtuous life looks like in various times, places, and cultures.

Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association

This panel is designed to examine ideas of childhood based on the life writing of working class people. The life writing could include autobiographies, diaries, letters, and/or compilations of life writing fragments. How is child labor/schooling discussed in life writing from working class individuals? How are ideas of childhood vs. adulthood altered through the necessities of class and work? Questions such as these can highlight how ideas of childhood are frequently tied to middle class identity and development, especially during the nineteenth century. A comparison can be made between working class presentations in fiction as opposed to life writing.

Jeremy Withers and Daniel Shea, Editors of Collection on Bicycles in Literature and Culture

The American author Charles Morley once said: "The bicycle, the bicycle surely, should always be the vehicle of novelists and poets." As Morley's quote suggests, many people have perceived an intimate connection between cycling and literature, and this edited collection aims to further reflect on that relationship between bicycles and art. We are seeking interdisciplinary essays from scholars interested in analyzing the role and significance of the bicycle in the novels, poems, short stories, plays, memoirs, films, television shows, songs (etc.) of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. Essays on texts other than literature and mass media will be considered, so long as they are primarily still engaging in textual or literary analysis.
