Jonathan Swift was a traveller, in his imagination as well as in life, regularly making his way, by ship and by foot, back and forth between Ireland and England during major periods of his life. Swift also travelled through genres and voices, among men and women, and between politics and religion. His works have travelled as well, through space and time, in numerous editions, along with translations, responses, adaptations, abridgements, continuations, and illustrated versions.

Elsewhere: Wandering In and Out of the Humanities 

J. R. R. Tolkien once wrote, “Not all those who wander are lost.” Although this quotation has experienced its fair share of "inspirational quote" status by both Tolkien and Coachella fans alike, there remains a question of what "wandering" and "being elsewhere" means for the academic community.

Current and retired lawyers in good standing, law students, elected or appointed government officials, professors of law and/or politics, and political operatives are eligible for membership in this committee.

Tuesday, May 16, 2017 - 1:58pm
Emily King / RSA 2018 (New Orleans)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

This panel investigates early modern coping strategies that engage both possibility and temporality. Specifically, how do early modern texts model alternative temporalities that evoke revised histories, alternative presents, or potential futures? How might intertextuality, grammatical structures, wordplay, and visual or other paratextual elements signal possibility? And how might alternative temporalities revise early modern subjectivity?

Topics of interest might include:

Funny in the Funnies

Studies in American Humor
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2017

Humor was the original scaffolding upon which American comic books were built. We have not historically called them “funny books” for nothing. Today, however, humor-based comics and graphic novels have been relatively marginalized by both scholars and contemporary readers alike. The focus of this special issue of Studies in American Humor, ser. 4, 4, no. 2 (October 2018), will be the comic side of comics, the funny that helped make the funnies. We are looking for essays that discuss graphic humor in periodicals from historical, thematic, and theoretical perspectives.

The writing of a literary text is as a retrospective explanation of what is happening in the present and such writing is the deliberate re-creation in actual practice. This present includes social, cultural, religious and political events. The impact of immediate contemporary concerns is served to place a literary text at least partly outside the author’s control. The author responds to a given context of historical and cultural incident that limits his freedom to invent or adapt or explain.

Craft Modernism: an assembly

Sussex University, 15 June 2017

We cordially invite you to come and take part in a new type of collaborative event: an assembly of thinkers and of ideas.

We want to gather a group of scholars and practitioners who are interested in instances or representations of craft in modernist writing, visual art, and sound.

We are open to inventive interpretations of the terms ‘craft’ and ‘modernism’. We welcome creatively imagined short presentations that will introduce an image or excerpt that the presenter will ‘speak to,’ and explain the connection to craft.
