Reading Walter de la Mare, 1873-1956:
‘a voice which has no fellow’


20th –21st  September 2018, University of Cambridge




By whom, and by what means, was this designed?
The whispered incantation which allows
Free passage to the phantoms of the mind?
                                        . . .
By the delicate, invisible web you wove —
The inexplicable mystery of sound.


               — From T. S. Eliot, ‘To Walter de la Mare’

Since Muybridge’s chronophotographic experiments, the relationship between cinema and time has been well documented. Less obvious, perhaps, is the relationship of cinema with space. Following the so-called digital mutation of recording and viewing technologies, this issue has nonetheless made its way to the forefront of cinema and media studies. It is not only that moviegoing is being decentered by the rise of portable viewing platforms — as cinema happens more and more outside of traditional theatres —, but also that the usual medium of inscription of film — the celluloid base — has been radically opened by new media.

"Speaking Her Truth, Power in the Telling: Contemporary Narratives of Women Writing for Healing, Wholeness, and Re-formation of Sociopolitical Understandings of Sexual Violence" (SSAWW Nov. 7-11, 2018, Denver, CO)

2017 was a year of feminist action and 2018 strongly continues this movement: the year began with the national Women’s March in DC, and the year closed with media reporting mass cover-ups of sexual exploitation and abuse in Hollywood and with the reporting of women finding power in uniting their voices. The #metoo movement was birthed and has become a rallying cry for continued awareness of misogynistic practices, collaboration to resist gendered violence, and recover women’s innate worth. Oprah Winfrey summed up these actions in her 2018 Golden Globes speech stating, “Speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.

Slave Poetics and the Political Present (interdisciplinary)

Friday, January 19, 2018 - 8:55am
American Studies Association, Atlanta, GA, Nov. 8th-11th
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 26, 2018

In his 2012 essay “On Failing to Make the Past Present,” Stephen Best argues that the slave archive is not always “a ready prism for apprehending the black political present,” pressuring contemporary scholars to make a distinction between today’s political crises and black diasporic history. And yet, recent political regressions force us to re-examine how our current moment may be informed by and understood through the optics of abolition, emancipation, and reconstruction. This panel seeks to re-focus current critical thought on the links between the traumatic past and the historical present by examining how the poetry of slavery accentuates—and even depends upon—these linkages.

So—satire is no more—I feel it die—
No Gazetteer more innocent than I—
And let, a’ God’s name, every fool and knave
Be graced through life, and flattered in his grave.


Alexander Pope, ‘Epilogue to the Satires’ (1738)
