Steve Brie

This volume will examine the crucial relationship between literature and
ethics, as it has developed and changed from the late medieval period to
the present day. The focus of the volume is predicated upon three
interrelated themes: namely, instruction, judgement, and justice. The
chapters will be informed by theoretical, philosophical, and critical
perspectives which have influenced various approaches to literary ethics.
These perspectives will include early modern humanism, utilitarianism,
existentialism and psychoanalytical hermeneutics, amongst others. The
volume is part of a series examining ethics across various academic
disciplines. Crucial questions addressed by the volume may include but are

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

Daniel A. Novak

UPDATE: Extended Deadline

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.

“Upon those who step into the same rivers, different and again different
waters flow.”

Over 2500 years have passed, but Heraclitos’ wisdom remains salient. None
would deny that there are dominant movements and perspectives; yet, every
scholar must admit that the topography of the discipline is in continual
flux. Each year generates a new approach and a new trend â€" a new branch
from the old.
