How do literary texts use, produce, or complicate the idea of evidence? How do ideas of evidence from other disciplines or fields—from philosophical, legal, or scientific disciplines, for example—provide context for the emergence and treatment of evidence in literary works? How do different forms or standards of evidence, inflected into literary texts, amplify or complicate apparent national, ethnic, sexual, or gender differences? How do texts perform evidentiary inquiry, and how do these modes of inquiry impact the form of the narrative, characterization, and so forth?

New Politics in Early Modern English Literature

updated: 
Friday, September 9, 2016 - 1:25pm
Association of Canadian College and University Teachers of English
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Since the advent of new historicism and the later development of cultural materialism, politics have been a topic of interest in early modern literature, and recent studies have asked us to conceive of them in new and broader ways, whether they be environmental, ecological, or cognitive, and to focus on different and overlooked outlets, such as pamphlets, free speech, or emotions.

This panel defines politics as an implementation or projection of governance—by a monarch in a kingdom, the head of a household in a domicile, etc.—and aims to assess early modern literature’s ability to present a wide scope of competing politics or political relations by offering the interpretation and/or voicing of plural or alternate realities.

In Le Surréalisme et l’après-guerre, Tristan Tzara asked:

Have we found a solution to the problems that brought about this war? Where is the end of this war, this shredded end that prolongs itself in each individual, bringing about new questions and temporary solutions and necessary but makeshift repairs and the crushing weight of pains and destructions and the gravity of wounds that are still raw? There is no war now, but there is no après-guerre yet.
