The Brontes and their Contemporaries: Texts and Contexts (1816-1855)

Sunday, November 18, 2018

This year (2018) the Bronte Society, centres of Victorian Studies as well as Literature departments across the Anglophone world are commemorating the bicentenary of Emily Bronte's birth with several conferences and events. The three Bronte sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne, were born in Yorkshire between 1816 and 1820. They all died young, with the longest survivor, Charlotte, passing away in 1855, possibly from tuberculosis (like her sisters) or typhus. However, in their short literary life, the sisters published one volume of poetry and seven novels – many of them as the Bells – which have ensured their presence and influence in the English literary sphere to this day.

Decadence [Call for Papers/Reviews]

Montesquieu's assertion that the fall of the Roman Empire could be attributed to a decline in morality and deviation from Classical ideals redefined the term “décadence.” From a neutral term for “decline,” decadence transformed into a laden pejorative signifying perversity and decay, as well as a warning against the dangers of excess and the pursuit of pleasure. Perceived as a disruptive force, dangerous to social order and bourgeois normativity, the threat of decadence is still invoked in modern political rhetoric to stoke anxieties over shifts in traditional values and social mores, as well as the looming threat of an irretrievable loss of geopolitical power.

Essay Collection: Joyce Writing Disability

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 1, 2019

Joyce Writing Disability is a proposed volume of essays on the history, theory, and depiction of disability as it relates to the life and work of James Joyce. Though disability is increasingly a popular topic in modernist studies, there is as yet no book dedicated to disability and/in Joyce. As such, Joyce Writing Disability will seek not to be the last word on the topic, but the first. We seek essays on a variety of topics and intersections, and are especially interested in readings that open novel and unexplored avenues for disability studies and Joyce criticism. Two major university presses have expressed an interest in the volume, and we are looking for contributions from scholars both established and new.
