Rethinking Hamlet's Modernity (MLA 2012, Abstract Deadline 3/1/2011)

updated: 
Wednesday, February 9, 2011 - 10:16pm
David Hershinow / Johns Hopkins University

This is a proposed special session for the 2012 MLA convention. Is Hamlet's modernity necessarily tied to the intellectual history of the inward-looking, discontented self? Are there other ways in which Hamlet can be understood as modern or as the product(ion) of modernity?

This panel aims to account for Hamlet's representative status with respect to the modern human condition in ways that do not ultimately rest on a particularly entrenched philosophical tradition, one that points to Hamlet's frustrated interiority as an opportunity to theorize modern selfhood (e.g., Freud, Lacan, Benjamin, Adorno, and Nietzche). How else might we read _Hamlet_ with an eye for its modernity?

Deadline for Applications: Saturday, 19 March 2011

With the intent of providing continued intelligent and entertaining content in the PopMatters' Columns section, we are looking to broaden our staff of columnists and the voice of our writers' community. We're particularly interested in writers who live and work outside of the US, but that is not a deciding factor; in all cases, no matter the writer's locale, we're looking for those who can approach an array of cultural subject matter from their patch of the world with an international sensibility; that is, contextualize the local with an awareness of its place, historical and current, in the broader world.

Modernism and Picture Writing (Modernist Studies Association, October 6-9, 2011)

updated: 
Wednesday, February 9, 2011 - 2:07pm
Modernist Studies Association

How and why do modernist writers and artists write with images or pictorialize with words, whether in experimental literature and fine arts, or in popular arts such as children╒s literature or comics? What connections might such aesthetics have with ideologies of biopower, cosmopolitanism, primitivism, futurism, or with other cultural discourses? Abstracts are solicited for an MSA 13 panel of three to four papers. Send a paragraph abstract and scholarly bio of 2 to 3 sentences to Glenn Willmott at gw12@queensu.ca by April 7, 2011.

Modernist Ecologies (Modernist Studies Association, October 6-9, 2011)

updated: 
Wednesday, February 9, 2011 - 2:04pm
Modernist Studies Association

Behind, beside or within the Unreal Cities of modernism, are there also Unreal Natures? Among the sparks, ghosts and shells of the human, are there also Unreal Animals? Abstracts are solicited for an MSA 13 panel of three to four papers that consider non-realist, avant-garde or fantasy representations of nature and the animal in modern literature, comics, painting or other arts. How are such representations susceptible to the ecological or economic discourses of ecocriticism, or to the biopolitical stakes of human-animal studies? Send a paragraph abstract and scholarly bio of 2 to 3 sentences to Glenn Willmott at gw12@queensu.ca by April 7, 2011.
