CFP: [Victorian] Melvillean Moments - Abstract 2/27 â Conference 4/3-4/4

full name / name of organization: 
Alan Lovegreen


Contributors are invited to submit critical works on Herman Melville.
Papers may examine any aspect of the writer’s work, study the emergence
of his use as a cultural apparatus, or engage spin-offs that use themes
or elements of his work or image. We are interested in the politics that
allow Melville’s works and ideas to ‘transcend’ boundaries of space,
time, and media to retain their appeal. Possible topics may include:

Melville’s reemergence in the 1920s
Melville’s works in popular culture; art
Whale Lore
Critical history or popular culture response
Performance, music and song in the texts
Use of myth and history

Abstracts of 250-300 words should be e-mailed to by February 27, 2009 (text in the body of
the message; please no attachments).

This panel is part of the (dis)junctions 2009 graduate student
conference, Brave New Worlds, at the University of California, Riverside.
(dis)junctions 2009 will take place on April 3 through April 4, 2009.
