CFP: [American] Melvillean Moments - Abstract 2/27 â Conference 4/3-4/4
Contributors are invited to submit critical works on Herman Melville.
Papers may examine any aspect of the writerâ€™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 Melvilleâ€™s works and ideas to â€˜transcendâ€™ boundaries of space,
time, and media to retain their appeal. Possible topics may include:
Melvilleâ€™s reemergence in the 1920s
Melvilleâ€™s works in popular culture; art
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
alan.lovegreen_at_email.ucr.edu 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.
