CFP: [Victorian] Gothic Sensations - Sensational Gothic (09/10-12/09)

Gothic Sensations

Gothic Sensations â€" Sensational Gothic
University of Salford, UK, 10-12 September 2009

The recent (re)turn to the study of emotion in literary studies invites a
reconsideration of the Gothic as a mode that relies on the emotional
response of those who are confronted with the uncanny and who, as a
result, experience fear. The ways in which writers represent emotional
response and immediacy is central to understanding the Gothic as a force
that transcends and transmutes culturally enforced structures of (self-)
control and the fashioning of gender roles and stereotypes.

CFP: [Victorian] SCMLA 2009––Special Session: Oscar Wilde: History, Sexuality, and Displacement

updated: 
Monday, December 15, 2008 - 8:22pm
full name / name of organization: 
Daniel A. Novak
contact email: 

In recent decades, Oscar Wilde has been theorized as a figure who
represented a historical shift or a displacement in how we think of
identity, gender, and sexuality. This panel invites papers that interrogate
these critical assumptions, broadly addressing Wilde's own thinking about
the relationship between history and identity. Papers may also focus on the
critical reception of Wilde from the early 20th century to the present.

This is a special session for the SCMLA 2009 conference in Baton Rouge, LA.
The theme of the conference is "Continuity and Displacement." A panel will
be chosen by February 20 and selected panels will be announced by March 2009.

Waiting Time

What are we waiting for? What awaits us? While often dismissed as a period of wastefulness or
lost time, waiting may also intensify experience and become a condition in which to consider
questions of modernity, aesthetic process, politics, erotics and the tempos of everyday life.

For I dipt into the future, far as human eye could see,
Saw the Vision of the world, and all the wonder that would be.

its inhabitants lying horizontal a hundred years hence.
