Monday, January 24, 2011 - 6:20pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association

Special Session: Pre and Post Modern Narratives

The convergences of pre- and post modern narrative form, with special attention to the meta-narrative self-consciousness and play which unites early fiction from Europe and the east (Chaucer, Boccaccio, Dante, 1,001 Nights) with such 'postmodern' writers as Calvino, Borges, Rushdie, Eco, Pamuk, Saramago—themselves careful readers of premodern narratives. Possible pre & post comparative topics include: the precarious status of the author; the inscribed role of readers; unreliable and shifting narrators; the figuring of 'the premodern' within postmodern narratives, and other forms of pre- and postmodern intertextuality; the medievalism of modern narrative theory.

Leo Bersani, Henry James: Henry James Review; deadline: Mar. 1, 2011

Monday, January 24, 2011 - 5:25pm
Henry James Review

Leo Bersani's 1976 A Future for Astyanax: Character and Desire in Literature was, at the time of its publication, a pathbreaking work of literary criticism and theory. The book as a whole, and Bersani's chapter "The Jamesian Lie" (originally published in Partisan Review in 1969) in particular, radically altered understandings of the structures of desire in James. A Future for Astyanax helped open up James Studies to sophisticated psychoanalytic analysis and to what was, at the time, called "Theory." In reading James with Racine, Emily Brontë, Stendhal, Histoire d'O, Gide, and Robert Wilson, Bersani defamiliarized the Henry James of American and Victorian Studies.

24th Annual GAFIS Symposium at UW-Madison: Articulating Communities, April 15-16th 2011

Monday, January 24, 2011 - 4:53pm
GAFIS (Graduate Association of French & Italian Students), University of Wisconsin-Madison

Throughout recorded history – traversing time and space, cultures and nations – the notion of community has fostered both collaboration and conflict. Communities, much like the individuals who inhabit them, come into being, evolve and eventually disappear. As such, they are the philosophical, social, cultural and political representations of their members. Whether defined by their geographical borders or collective identities, they share common goals, beliefs and needs. The significance of community building, community belonging and community intersections is thus filtered into literature, art, music and film.

CFP: (Edited Volume): Regal Reels: Hollywood's Fascination with Royalty (03/15/11; 01 November 2011)

Monday, January 24, 2011 - 9:32am
Scott F. Stoddart, Dean of Liberal Arts Fashion Institute of Technology / SUNY

Submissions are sought for a collection of essays titled Regal Reels: Hollywood's Fascination with Royalty.
Although in its infancy America rejected a monarchy as its form of government, Hollywood cinema has maintained a long fascination with royalty, and American audiences have eagerly patronized foreign films and television series that focus on royal families. The recent success of The King's Speech (Hopper 2010) attests that the royal family is a subject that continues to fascinate the American movie-going public. These films seem to be more than mere bio-pics; they appear to serve a political purpose that intrigues American audiences.
