cal clements

This is to announce "The Alchemy Issue" of Pataphysica, journal
of a certain science. A symbolic science of imaginary
solutions, alchemy is a branch of pataphysics, the "science of
sciences" founded by Alfred Jarry (1873-1907). Jarry's own work
is steeped in alchemical allusions, from (among many other
instances) his 1894 exhortation to "study conjunctions!"
("Visions Present and Future"); to his 1898 "neo-scientific"
novel Exploits and Opinions of Dr. Faustroll, pataphysician,
where the evicting locksmith, Mr. Lourdeau, resides at "205 rue
Nicolas Flamel" (Flamel was a legendary 14th century alchemist);
to his 1899 "Automovable Feast" in Père Ubu's Illustrated

CFP: Intellectual Work in American Fiction 1865-1910 (1/1/04; collection)

Thursday, October 9, 2003 - 8:23pm
Armstrong, Rick

I am proposing an edited collection on the issue of intellectual work and
certification in American fiction 1865-1910. Many realist writers of the
late nineteenth and early twentieth century were preoccupied with the value
of intellectual work, especially the profession of writing. This
preoccupation could be due to university reform which emphasized a more
practical education as opposed to the pre-Civil War moral education.

Essays in the collection should focus on the way "the culture of
professionalism" functions in the novels of the period.
