Since Kimmel -CfP - January 1, 2015

Thursday, May 29, 2014 - 11:36pm
Jonathan A. Allan and Frank G. Karioris

This collection of essays seeks to imagine critical studies of men and masculinities since Kimmel. What does it mean to study men and masculinities after Kimmel? Since, of course, is a complex word that speaks as much to moving beyond Kimmel, as it does to speaking in the shadow of Kimmel. How do we imagine men's studies and its future after Kimmel?

Cornering the Snarket: Sarcasm and Snark in Medieval Literature and Cultures

Thursday, May 29, 2014 - 10:50pm
Alan Baragona and Elizabeth Rambo

From the litotes of Old English poetry to the layered ironies of Chaucer, the subtle ironies of the Provencal trobairitz, and the less subtle insultatis of the milites characters in medieval drama, the rhetorical trope of ironia is well-trod territory. However, sarcasmos, the "flesh tearing" subset of ironia, is notoriously difficult to identify in a written text, because it relies so much on the tone of a speaking voice. However, there are instances in medieval texts where the combination of circumstance and word choice makes it absolutely clear that the speaker, whether a character or a narrator, is being unambiguously sarcastic.

City Science and City Craft -- MMLA 2014 (Nov. 13-16)

Thursday, May 29, 2014 - 10:50am
Midwest Modern Languages Association

Finding a coin in a street gutter, the protagonist of Charles Reznikoff's 1930 novel "By the Waters of Manhattan" concludes, "If there was woodcraft . . . he was master of a new science, citycraft." Though his sense of mastery is short-lived, the language of his expression points toward a method of grappling with the economic realities of modern city life that aligns with what Tim Armstrong identifies as a conflict between the modern and the inherited.
