Manuscript Aesthetics (Kalamazoo ICMS 2018)

Graduate Medievalists at Berkeley
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 15, 2017

In a 2013 special issue of the Chaucer Review, Arthur Bahr and Alexandra Gillespie encourage literary scholars to consider the aesthetic qualities of the medieval manuscript, in tandem with the text itself. For Bahr and Gillespie, the “forms of manuscripts can be read alongside, or as an intrinsicaspect of, the forms of literary texts.” These claims are, of course, part of a long-standing tradition in Anglo-American scholarship that considers how the mise-en-page of the medieval manuscript generates different modes of reading, from the lifelong work of Malcolm Parkes to the so-called “New Philology.”

Pushing Past the Human in Latin American Cinema

Over the past decade, film studies has increasingly taken up the question of the environment and climate change (Rust, Monani, Cubit; Narine; Pick and Narraway). However, the question of “nature” has yet to be comprehensively theorized from the perspective of Latin American cinema. This edited volume proposes to begin to fill this gap by bringing together scholarship that explores Latin American films (from any time period) that foreground the nonhuman. We are specifically interested in thinking about why the past decade has generated an unprecedented boom in ecologically oriented films (both documentaries and fiction) throughout Latin America. How do these films dialogue with or push back against broader theories in ecocriticism?

“One can get to the figure by making clear that every discourse possesses its counterpart, the object of which it speaks, which is over there, like what it designates in a horizon: sight on the edge of discourse.” —Jean-François Lyotard, Discourse, Figure, 7.

 

“Perhaps it is no more than an accident that in our two oldest examples figura occurs in combination with nova; but even if accidental, it is significant, for the notion of the new manifestation, the changing aspect, of the permanent runs through the whole history of the word.” —Erich Auerbach, “Figura,” Scenes from the Drama of European Literature, 12.
