CSA 2012 Panel: (Re)membering the historical "monster"

updated:

Erin DeYoung (Trinity College Dublin) and Sarah Jo Mayville (UCSD)

This year's theme, "Culture Matters," calls for proposals that critically and creatively reflect on culture and "the material" broadly conceived. How do we theorize the relationship between culture and materiality? In what ways might interdisciplinary formations such as ethnic studies, critical gender studies, queer theory, indigenous studies, and new media studies challenge or redefine notions of the material? How should cultural critics understand the material in relationship to the immaterial? What are the cultural-material aspects of knowledge production both inside and outside the university? How does culture become a material force and how can cultural critics and producers intervene in or transform institutions and material practices?

Aliases and Editors: Negotiating Identity in 19th Century Periodicals (Panel), March 2012

Tuesday, August 30, 2011 - 3:04pm
NeMLA Annual Convention - Rochester, New York

The following CFP is for a panel taking place at the Annual Northeast Modern Language Association Annual Convention in Rochester, New York on March 12-15, 2012.

The periodical writer often depended upon establishing a distinguishable identity to achieve his/her popularity. Yet some of the most successful examples were pseudonymous figures like Charles Lamb's Elia and James Hogg's Ettrick Shepherd. Such figures often played fast and loose with notions of stable identity, altering and contradicting their fictional backstories with each month's contribution. Operating through such mercurial personas, these writers utilized the market's potential for fluctuating identity described by Lynch.

Major Minors: Neglected and New Issues in Literary Studies

The 22nd Annual Mardi Gras Conference at Louisiana State University

LSU Student Union

February 16th & 17th, 2012

Keynote Address by Meredith McGill, Rutgers University

The literary canon, that sacred body of texts and genres that we deem high art, stands surrounded today by rapidly expanding interests in newer or long-neglected works. A major form, a major author, or a major style of analysis often dominates and overshadows the lesser known and more obscure. Meanwhile, archival efforts and the expanding resources of the internet have made available works and authors otherwise inaccessible, opening study to vast materials heretofore unknown or ignored.
