In Testament of Youth, Vera Brittain reflects that the Armistice has “come too late”: “[the people] did not cry jubilantly: ‘We’ve won the War!’ They only said: ‘The War is over’” (421-2). This panel addresses practices of memory and commemoration, particularly relating to the fraught relationship(s) between war and peace, and the ways in which, as Madelyn Detloff reminds us, we exist in a “‘patched’ present troubled by modernist constellations of personal trauma, militarized violence, and ‘imperial loss’” (Modernism 10).

Text and Performance: Writing the Real

When James Joyce was composing Finnegan’s Wake with Samuel Beckett as a scribe, someone knocked on the door. Joyce responded, “Come in?” When he realized he had mistakenly written this down, Beckett asked Joyce how far back to cross out. Joyce—so the story goes—decided to leave it in the novel, delighted at the way his life had blended with his work. How can we understand the dynamic relationship between art and life? When does the depiction of life become life itself? We propose a panel to investigate performance, specifically, as a liminal space between art and life, or between text and action, that offers the opportunity to explore the possibilities of the real and the unreal, of assumption and disruption, of subject and object.

Taking Drugs Literally — Troping the Human and Turning a Phrase

A satirical post on a bulletin board in a hallway of a university arts building condemns the literary genius — citing Shakespeare, Coleridge, Yeats, Baudelaire, Poe, Hemingway, the Beats, and others — for the use of performance-enhancing drugs, proposing that we take anti-doping measures to cull the canon of those who would cheat at their craft.  Jesting aside, however, such satire points not only toward the near-ubiquity of psychotropic plant use to the literary imagination, but also to the cultural expectation placed upon the artist to trope, to turn the mind as well as the word.

Labor, Leisure, and the Anthropocene: ASLE, Detroit, MI, June 20-24, 2017

Seeking conference paper proposals for ASLE: Association for Studies in Literature and Environment.   

The Anthropocene has developed largely because of our cultures of work and our work machines. This fact calls for a reevaluation of work. How might this effort proceed? How should we reimagine labor and leisure in light of climate change? What does the news of the Anthropocene teach us about ideologies of labor and leisure? What does the naming technology of “the Anthropocene” make possible? What does it suppress or disable?

Popular Hindi films stars are a vast but still largely untapped area of academic interest. Within film studies, a number of articles and book chapters have probed the significance of stars as compelling personas, industry assets and bellwethers of larger social trends. As yet, though, there is no volume or collection that brings together a set of reflections on stars and stardom in one forum. This edited volume fills this gap with a sustained and diverse consideration of the phenomenon of stardom in contemporary Bollywood.
