Modern Horizons invites short abstracts for papers (of 25-30 minutes’ length) to be presented at our “Rhythm, Duration, Presence” conference to be held 25 October, 2019 in Toronto, Canada.

Believing Women in the Late-Nineteenth Century

Please consider submitting an abstract for this panel proposal at the 2020 C19 conference in Coral Gables, FL. Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh before the Senate Judiciary Committee in September 2018 helped make “Believe Women” a new rallying cry for the #metoo movement(s). This roundtable will examine the contentious issue of women’s believability during the latter half of the nineteenth century, a time when the credibility of women was also at the forefront of popular consciousness, occasionally heralded but more often interrogated. How did writers and activists push back against the persistent gaslighting of women during the postbellum period?

Nineteenth-/Twentieth-/Twenty-First-Century Medievalisms

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 15, 2019

For this session, we seek proposals exploring the factors shaping nineteenth- and twentieth-/twenty-first-century literature (in its broad sense) about the Middle Ages as well as the differences in approaches to the Middle Ages in each century. What historical, social, and intellectual views shaped nineteenth-century approaches to the Middle Ages? In what ways were these views limited or biased based on what the Victorians knew and believed and did not know, particularly when compared to advances in historical, psychological, and political knowledge in the next centuries? Conversely, what shaped twentieth-/twenty-first-century views of the Middle Ages?

Despite the fact that, as Jonas Wellendorf has recently pointed out, “students of Old Norse literature and literary culture have long been aware that hagiographical and ecclesiastical literature has a longer written history in the North than the native saga genres,” (The Routledge Research Companion to the Medieval Icelandic Sagas, 48)there is still, generally, an imbalance in the critical studies of Old Norse-Icelandic hagiography in comparison to studies of the konungasögur and Íslendigasögur.
