"Global Progeny: Medievalisms in Children's and Young Adults' Literature" - (Kalamazoo 2010)

updated: 
Monday, September 7, 2009 - 11:21pm
The Scholarly Community for the Globalization of the Middle Ages (SCGMA)

Children's and young adults' fantasy works are often rife with
medievalisms, and in the past few decades the impact of globalization has emerged in the expanding scope of fantasy worlds.

For example, children's literature often features a big desert to the south inhabited by turbaned, scimitar-wielding neighbors who are typically enemies. In recent years, these "others" have been brought to the forefront and are heroes/allies rather than villains.

[REMINDER] CFP: Reading Medieval Multimedia: Interdisciplinary Approaches, abstract by 9/15

updated: 
Monday, September 7, 2009 - 5:08pm
Fordham University Center for Medieval Studies

The "Reading Medieval Multimedia: Interdisciplinary Approaches" session seeks papers across the disciplines of medieval studies that explore avenues for understanding medieval multimedia works, that is, works which utilize multiple forms of media as a way of appealing to the minds and senses of their reader-viewers and thereby shape reception. The goal of these sessions is to bring into dialogue approaches from a variety of fields that acknowledge the interdisciplinary demands of studying multimedia but otherwise tend to direct their discussions to monodisciplinary audiences.

[UPDATE] There's nothing so sensible as sensual inundation": Mary Oliver's Search for Transcendence (NEMLA, April 7-11, 2010, Mo

Jen Riley

Poet Mary Oliver has often been criticized by feminist critics for her close association of women with nature, an association some believe put the woman poet in danger of losing her identity and ability to create meaningful art. However, Oliver's poems suggest that such a connection with nature may indeed be a powerful, transformative experience as her poems investigate how one can merge with nature, experience the natural world and its wonders, and discover how to live fully in one's life. She suggests that we need to look, watch, and feel our experiences more carefully if we are to transcend ordinary moments and find more meaningful ways of knowing and being in the world.
