CFP: [Renaissance] College English Association Annual Meeting: 17th Century British Literature

Sunday, September 9, 2007 - 7:59pm
Dr. Lynne Simpson

We invite papers on 17th century British literature in relation to the idea
of the “passage” for the 39th annual meeting of the College English
Association. “Passage” signals the importance of the transitional moment,
when one must leap into the unknown and either brave or embrace change; it
also invokes all the subsequent acts of journeying. Papers might usefully
address the rite of passage, the spiritual quest, death as a threshold
experience, passage to the “New World,” or other real or metaphoric travel.
Finally, for the academic, passages remain our stock in trade, the medium
through which we journey through the text itself. Papers that celebrate

Shifting Notions of Turn-of-the-Century American Lyric

39th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 10-13, 2008
Buffalo, New York

This panel will focus on the relationship between late-nineteenth-century American poetry,
naturalism, and realism. Like realist and naturalist fiction, poetry of the period engages with
radical and rapid changes; American lyric reflects these contradictions and flows in its form and
content. This panel is interested in the ways that social changes infuse vitality into the form, how
inherited traditions intersect and adjust to changing political and social circumstances.

prior to the twentieth-century. We have already had preliminary conversations with a publisher
who has expressed interest in the volume.

What does it mean to be a woman celebrity? In what ways does a woman writer become
commodified, and how are those commodities publicized and marketed? Are women
commodified differently than men of the same period?
