Geoffrey Baker / Yale-NUS College
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

How do literary texts use, produce, or complicate the idea of evidence? How do ideas of evidence from other disciplines or fields—from philosophical, legal, or scientific disciplines, for example—provide context for the emergence and treatment of evidence in literary works? How do different forms or standards of evidence, inflected into literary texts, amplify or complicate apparent national, ethnic, sexual, or gender differences? How do texts perform evidentiary inquiry, and how do these modes of inquiry impact the form of the narrative, characterization, and so forth?

[CFP] The Great Irish Famine: Global Contexts [Deadline: November 1st, 2016]

 

CFP: “The Great Irish Famine: Global Contexts” for special issue of Breac. Edited by Marguérite Corporaaland Jason King.

The Great Irish Famine (1845–52) was one of the most influential periods in the history of Ireland and its diaspora. While emigration had already been a common feature in Irish life before the 1840s, the Famine catalysed the process, causing far greater numbers to leave the island and changing the nature of Irish emigration and Irish communities overseas, while also greatly influencing Irish society at home.

Victorian-Modernism. An unlikely match that many might consider intrinsically oxymoronic. In this panel, we invite Victorian and Modernist literary scholars to a productive conversation with a dual purpose. First, to trouble the boundaries between these two periods through papers that treat Victorian and Modernist literary texts as companions rather than as strictly periodized texts in opposition. Second, to examine representations of the city as a key site that initiates this dialogue.
