[UPDATE] Civil War Literature Panel, American Literature Association (ALA 2011 May 26-29, Boston, MA)

updated: 
Wednesday, December 1, 2010 - 6:59pm
Leslie Crowell

Despite the Civil War's lasting impact on popular culture in the U.S., the literature of the Civil War period remains an understudied area of nineteenth-century American literary studies. This proposed panel welcomes papers on literature of and about the Civil War through the end of reconstruction. Papers on individual texts or larger trends are welcome, as are traditional and non-traditional definitions of "literature."
Please email a 250-word proposal and a 1-page c.v. to crowell2@illinois.edu by December 15, 2010.

Renaissance Verse

updated: 
Wednesday, December 1, 2010 - 5:30pm
Southeast Renaissance Conference

Sir Philip Sidney wrote that poetry "is an art of imitation; for so Aristotle termeth it in the word [Greek text]; that is to say, a representing, counterfeiting, or figuring forth: to speak metaphorically, a speaking picture, with this end, to teach and delight." What, then does poetry teach us? How does it continue to delight us? This panel seeks papers that explore or even celebrate the triumph of poetry in English during the 16th and 17th centuries. From sonnets to soliloquies, how do Early Modern poets and playwrights utilize verse?

Please send abstracts of no more than 500 words to Lynne Simpson at lsimpson@presby.edu by May 1.

Revolution! A Regional Graduate Student Literature Conference. April 2, 2011

Wednesday, December 1, 2010 - 4:56pm
Christina Hauck, Department of English, Kansas State University

At our inaugural Kansas State University Regional Graduate Student Conference in Literature, we will explore the ways in which revolutions of all kind have affected (and continue to affect) our discipline. Revolution! is inspired by Jasbir Puar's groundbreaking work, Terrorist Assemblages: Homonationalism in Queer Times, which critiques contemporary configurations of sexuality, race, gender, nation, class, and ethnicity. Using Puar's work as a touchstone for revolutionary readings, our conference will examine representations of revolution in its various forms—cultural, political, textual, and theoretical—in British and American literature composed during any period.
