Article proposals are sought for a special issue of a journal on Chaucerian resonances in early modern drama. At present, confirmed contributions for this issue focus primarily on Chaucerian resonances in Shakespeare’s works. We are potentially interested in further contributions focusing on Shakespeare's Chauceriana but would be especially interested to receive proposals relating to Chaucerian resonances beyond Shakespeare’s dramatic canon.

ABOUT CONFERENCE: Affects, emotions and perceptions have always been at the center of philosophical discussion. Yet the so called “Affective turn” in social studies and humanities is relatively a new phenomenon inspired by Deleuze and Guattari´s influential works among others. Affective turn challenges the still dominant representational approach in semiotics, discourse analysis and text analyses of all kind. Its goal is to overcome human exceptionalism together with the domination of the word-based language over the other forms of expression in the process of creating meaning and knowledge altogether.

This heuristic panel seeks to examine the lived reality and creative representation of the political and ecological crisis in Kashmir. Spotlighting the voices of Kashmiri writers will continue the long and delicate process of shedding light on the current human rights crisis happening in Kashmir, as well as its global significance. This panel, therefore, solicits academic research that brings the persecuted voices of Kashmiri writers out of isolation (respecting anonymity on an individual basis) and into humanist discussions. The purpose of this panel involves both understanding the description of the Kashmiri lived reality, as well as providing space for hearing the specific tenants of their calls for change.

Queer 19th-century Desire in the City of Brotherly and Sisterly Love

In 1860, Walt Whitman, begins his poem “I Dreamed in a Dream” with this vision of an idyllic city: “I saw a city invincible to the attacks of the whole of the rest of the earth; I dream’d that was the new City of Friends; Nothing was greater there than the quality of robust love— it led the rest” (1-5). Though presented as a utopian city formed in a dream, the City of Friends, in the 19th century, was a slogan used to refer to Philadelphia. The allusion to friends references the foundation of Philly by William Penn, a Quaker. It is this Quaker heritage that Whitman connects to his vision of Comradeship in which men of different backgrounds and cultures will lovingly embrace one another.

How do we understand dispossession and subjections that result from imposed demarcations, displacements, and deprivations? How do we see the dispossessed or subjugated as re-articulated in literary works, and what functions can those re-articulations of present/spectral absences play in the literary analysis of the dispossessed territories or bodies, and beyond?

EXTENDED DEADLINE (June 26th, 2020): Scandal and Transgression in Twentieth-Century Transatlantic Vanguardisms

VIRTUAL SAMLA 92
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 26, 2020

This panel explores forms of dissent adopted by twentieth-century transatlantic avant-gardes as a means of challenging traditional genres and social codes. Since the inception of European experimentalism during the first decades of the twentieth century, a series of art movements engaged in radical production that questioned the established state of affairs. From the Cubist adoption of multiple viewpoints, through the Futurist celebration of technology and speed, the Expressionist distortion of form, to the Dadaist sense of provocation and the irrational juxtaposition of images in Surrealism, avant-garde art and literature has set precedents on an international level of exchanges.
