EXTENDED DEADLINE: Scandal and Transgression in Twentieth-Century Transatlantic Vanguardisms

updated: 
Thursday, May 28, 2020 - 2:37pm
SAMLA 92: Virtual/Hybrid Format
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 26, 2020

This panel explores forms of dissent adopted by twentieth-century transatlantic avant-gardes as a means of challenging traditional genres and social codes. Since the inception of European experimentalism during the first decades of the twentieth century, a series of art movements engaged in radical production that questioned the established state of affairs. From the Cubist adoption of multiple viewpoints, through the Futurist celebration of technology and speed, the Expressionist distortion of form, to the Dadaist sense of provocation and the irrational juxtaposition of images in Surrealism, avant-garde art and literature has set precedents on an international level of exchanges.

The trickster figure, agent of disruption and change, has had numerous and diverse manifestations in literature, film, and popular culture. Joseph Campbell characterized the trickster as having “a very special property…he always breaks in…to trip up the rational situation. He’s both a fool and someone who’s beyond the system.

Art and Aesthetics of Modern Mythopoeia: Literatures, Myths and Revisionism

updated: 
Tuesday, May 19, 2020 - 11:37am
Vishvanatha Kaviraja Institute
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 31, 2020

Concept Note

Parallel to the growing interest in cultural studies, a robust wave of Revisionist literary texts has surfaced in the recent times. Mythopoeia has always been a steady proponent in the construct of any civilization, and it is a fact that Indian Culture is deeply associated with a plethora of mythological narratives. In the contemporary period, the trend of Revisionist texts not only displays an inclination towards retelling of the traditional narratives, but also invites alternative and novel approaches of analytical discourses.

neMLA Philadelphia 2021 Round Table (Russian Literature/Eastern Orthodoxy)

updated: 
Tuesday, May 12, 2020 - 1:53pm
Isaac Aday/University of Texas at Dallas
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

This panel is dedicated to discussing Eastern/Russian Orthodox traditions, morality, culture, hagiography, iconography, mysticism, practices, monasticism, and beliefs as they pertain to (or appear within) Russian and Slavic literature. Discussions of religious influence are critical to the study of many of the greatest Russian authors and poets--Dostoevsky and Tolstoy amongst many others. Still, little scholarship has explored how both Dostoevsky and Tolstoy had extraordinarily different views of the Orthodox faith and of Christianity in general, and how this might have influenced their existential perspectives of life and death, meaning and purpose, as well as their works.
