The HERA conference peer review program committee invites proposals for presentations at the 2019 conference. The program committee’s theme is designed to incorporate any and all possible connotations. Our understanding of the tensions and implications of the “highbrow-lowbrow” continuum have existed for as long as the humanities. Although the terms are first associated with the 19th century, connotations of the humanities as possessing elevated, elite, upper class, or even sanctified religious ritual, intellectual, or cultural endeavor may be traced back to ancient times.

E21: Presentivism in the Eighteenth-Century Studies Classroom
In its manifesto, the V21 Collective asserts that “Victorian Studies has fallen prey to positivist historicism: a mode of inquiry that aims to do little more than exhaustively describe, preserve, and display the past” and advocates for “a new openness to presentism: an awareness that our interest in the period is motivated by certain features of our own moment.” At the 2018 ASECS, the same question was asked of eighteenth-century studies: as a discipline, have we “fallen prey to positivist historicism,” and would it benefit us to be open to presentism? Do we need our own V21, or E21?

“Refugee and immigrant are very different. A refugee is someone ejected from his or her past, who has no future, whose present is totally empty of meaning. In a refugee camp, you live outside of time – you don’t know when you’re going to eat, let alone when you’re going to get out of there. And you’re also outside of space because the camp is a no man’s land. To be a human being you have to be part of something. The first time we got an official piece of paper from Canada, my whole family stared at it – until then, we were stateless, part of nothing.”

The Medievalism in Popular Culture Area (including Anglo-Saxon, Robin Hood, Arthurian, Norse, and other materials connected to medieval studies) accepts papers on all topics that explore either popular culture during the Middle Ages or transcribe some aspect of the Middle Ages into the popular culture of later periods. These representations can occur in any genre, including film, television, novels, graphic novels, gaming, advertising, art, etc. For this year’s conference, I would like to encourage submissions on some of the following topics:
The global economic crises of the past twenty years have been accompanied by academic revaluations of Marx in economics and the social sciences, as well as a “return to Marx” in popular discourses concerned with economic justice and political activism. During this same period, however, literary studies has witnessed a turn away from Marxist historicism and ideology critique toward “post-critical” methodologies that emphasize weak theories over strong theories, textual surfaces over historical depths, description over suspicion.
