CFP: [Victorian] "Realism and the Supernatural in the Nineteenth Century" NeMLA 2009 (9/15/08 deadline)
"Realism and the Supernatural in the Nineteenth Century"
40th Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association
February 26 - March 1, 2009
Hyatt Regency - Boston, Massachusetts
This panel solicits papers on British and American nineteenth-century
literature that problematize the realism/supernaturalism dichotomy. How
is realism not just inflected and subverted but also perhaps constituted
by the supernatural, paranormal, and occult? Where and when, how and why
do â€œrealismâ€ and â€œsupernaturalismâ€ cease to be useful or valid
designations? What theoretical frameworks might one use to
reconceptualize the relationship between supernaturalism and realism?
