On love being analogous to a battlefield, Roland Barthes writes: “From what language, one wonders, did these lovesick, melancholy grenadiers draw their passion (scarcely in accord with the image of their class and profession)? What books had they read–or what stories been told?” Following Barthes’ indicative questions, this panel inquires into the connection between love–as an idea, experience, or emotion–and the stories we have been telling about it over the long course of history. Can one imagine love without stories? What is the relationship between different forms of desire and the literary forms that bear their weight? How do changes in global storytelling practices transform our ideas of love?
To welcome the Gothic to NeMLA 2024 (March 7-10), this panel asks scholars to present work that introduces unlikely kinship systems in the Gothic and claims these relationships as unique to this genre.

Modern Language Association
Seventy-sixth annual convention
English Nineteenth-Century Panel
October 11-14, 2023
Abstract Deadline: April 1, 2023
The Incredible Nineteenth Century: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Fairy Tale (I19) seeks to publish the best scholarship on the century that was, in many ways, the time period in which the modern genres of science fiction and fantasy began, and in which the academic study of fairy tale and folklore has its roots. I19 interprets “the nineteenth century” broadly, using the dates of “The Long Nineteenth Century”—roughly, from the beginning of the French Revolution to the end of World War I—but even these dates are just notable historical markers as they approximately coincide with Romanticism and Modernism, respectively.
PAMLA 2023: October 26-29, 2023
The Incredible Nineteenth Century: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Fairy Tale will host an online conference via Zoom on March 31-April 1. The theme is "Beginnings," and we will be exploring how, in many ways, the nineteenth century saw the birth of science fiction and fantasy as we know them, as well as the scholarly study of folk and fairy tales. Suggested topics may include, but are not limited to:

Interfused: imagination, faith and reason in Romantic writers
The period in European and anglophone literature from the late eighteenth century to the mid-nineteenth known as Romantic had a number of characteristics and, although there was reaction from Enlightenment thinking, some long established threads endured. For the conference we look for associations with Christian and Biblical themes in literary texts. Papers will have a reading time of 20 minutes. Fuller details are on the conference page of the CLSG website.
