CFP: Four Nations Fiction: Women and the Novel, 1780-1830, 28 September 2013

updated: 
Friday, March 8, 2013 - 6:54pm
National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth

Keynote speaker: Professor Claire Connolly (University College Cork)

In Blackwood's Magazine in September 1819, John Wilson reflected on the towering fame of three contemporary women poets in the following terms: 'Scotland has her Baillie – Ireland her Tighe – England her Hemans.' The work of these women in fact represents all four parts of Britain in 1819, but who would replace them if fiction was the focus, rather than poetry?

Historicizing Formalism (MSA 15, Aug. 29-Sept. 1, 2013)

Modernist Studies Association

"The basis for every art form is always conflict," writes Viktor Shklovsky. The same might also be said for the discourse of formalism itself. Indeed, for all its emphasis on aesthetic autonomy and material specificity, the history of formalism in the modernist period is in large part the history of its contact with, and contamination by, the apparently debased and instrumental cultural forms (science, technology, advertising, mass media, etc.) from which it ostensibly sought deliverance. How did modernist aesthetics arise out of the contradictory desire to safeguard, but also distress, the separation of art and life?

Transnational America(s)

Transnationalism holds particular resonance for American studies. Emerging from fragmented narratives of diaspora and fluid borders, it forms part of the foundational mythology of the United States. The term has a long history of use in racial dialectic, but its resonances permeate every aspect of contemporary (inter)national, cultural and economic identity.
