CFP: [20th] Essay Collection on the Sitwells

updated: 
Tuesday, November 25, 2008 - 10:49pm
Allan Pero

This CFP is for a proposed collection of essays on the works of the
Sitwells. In New Bearings in English Poetry, F.R. Leavis condemned the
Sitwells to "the history of publicity rather than of poetry." However,
the Sitwells, individually and as a trio, were not only significant
contributors to the fields of poetry, fiction, memoir, belles lettres,
art history, travel writing, and biography, they were also key players in
the popularization of Modernism and in the development of "celebrity"
and "scandal" in cultural production. This volume of essays will
contribute to a renewed interest in the Sitwells' work and their place in
the history of Modernism. The editors particularly welcome proposals that

CFP: [18th] Expanding Borders: MWASECS 2009

Jeanne Hageman

The Eighteenth Century ushered in a period of unprecedented expansion. We
most often think of the expansion of the physical borders: the colonies,
the exploration of new worlds and new territories, and the creation of
new countries through revolution, conquest and war. But just as the
physical boundaries were exploding, so were other long-standing frontiers
within societies themselves: social, sexual, class and mercantile
borders, among others, began to change. How did the authors and
explorers, actors and playwrights, philosophers and libertines expand the
limits and boundaries imposed upon them by the world around them? How did
they express their discontent and present their discoveries and

‘postmodern’ irony that would soon falter. Now, years later, another scene
marked by oscillations is taking shape.

"Every individual human being, one may say, carries within him,

being, and it is his life's task to be, through all his changing
manifestations, in harmony with the unchanging unity of this ideal."
