CFP: "Longevity Networks" Special Issue of Victoriographies (Fall 2015)

updated: 
Monday, March 31, 2014 - 5:50pm
Victoriographies (Edinburgh University Press)

Call for submissions for a special issue of Victoriographies, A Journal of Nineteenth-Century Writing, 1790-1914 scheduled for publication Fall 2015: "Longevity Networks."
Deadline: June 30, 2014

Essays are sought for a special number of Victoriographies inspired by the concept of textual longevity. There is a great deal of energy in media studies, new materialism, and print culture around questions of textual longevity. We understand longevity to mean the iterability of text, broadly conceived: reprinting, versions, editions, revisions, translation, interpretation, appropriation, the readymade, intermediality, homage, modernization, spoof, and parody.

Written Song and Performed Text Conference Panel (Deadline June 17, 2014)

updated: 
Monday, March 31, 2014 - 5:12pm
Medieval-Renaissance Conference XXVIII at UVA-Wise

This panel centers on the subject of orality and the written record in the realm of music. The organizers are particularly interested in the history of rimur, an Icelandic song tradition which appeared in manuscripts beginning in the 14th century and survived long enough to be recorded in 20th-century performance. However, abstracts are welcome on any aspect of orality and literacy in relation to medieval and early modern music.

Abstracts for papers should be 250 words or fewer.

Deadline for submissions is June 17, 2014.

The Medieval-Renaissance Conference takes place at UVA-Wise, Sept. 25-27, 2014.

Reanimate Earth: Liminality and Communitas in Literature of the Americas

updated: 
Monday, March 31, 2014 - 2:05pm
South Atlantic MLA Conference, Atlanta, Georgia (Nov 7-9, 2014)

Seeking out new growth in devastated spaces and optimism in the face of environmental despair, this panel will take on the task of enchanting readers with physical spaces in the U.S., Canada, and Latin America that have already been toxified or left for dead. The liminal, a conception traditionally most relevant to anthropology and psychoanalysis, has the capacity to reinvigorate the relationship between culture and its more anomalous literary environments.

Zibaldone. Estudios Italianos de La Torre del Virrey

La significativa presencia de viajeros e inmigrantes italianos en el continente americano durante los últimos doscientos años, especialmente relevante tanto desde el punto de vista histórico, como cultural y humano, permite de forma excepcional estudiar el complejo fenómeno migratorio partiendo del caso concreto de Hispanoamérica, tomando para ello como referencia los múltiples ejemplos de contacto entre ambas culturas, al igual que sucede en América del Norte, donde el arribo de oleadas inmigratorias y los contactos políticos y culturales fueron también sumamente fructíferos.

Christopher Pittard, University of Portsmouth, UK

Much has been written and said on the 'other' Dickens (from John Bowen's Other Dickens (2000) to the international conference organised by the University of Portsmouth, The Other Dickens (2012), to mark the bicentenary of Dickens' birth in the city, via The Other Dickens (2011), Lilian Nayder's biography of Catherine Hogarth), but what might it mean to talk of an alternative as opposed to an other Dickens?

APPROACHES TO TEACHING LITERATURE AND ENGLISH IN THE TWENTY FIRST CENTURY, 30 April 2014

updated: 
Monday, March 31, 2014 - 9:01am
Department of English, Higher Teachers' Training College, The University of Maroua, Cameroon

J. Hillis Miller has observed that "New digital devices- computers, iPhones, iPads, Facebook Twitter, Video games are rapidly diminishing the role literature plays in peoples' lives" and the need to study English for academic purposes. Consequently, the teaching of language and literature, it would be no exaggeration to say has changed beyond all recognition. This notwithstanding, multitude of teachers and students continue to study literary texts and the English language.
