Second half of twentieth century sees literary criticism interpreting the role of history, itself subject to interpretations bearing upon the kind of notion one has of history, as one of the dominant modes of creating ‘literature’ along with the persona of the artist. Oscar Wilde says that, “an artist is not an isolated fact, he is the resultant of a certain milieu and a certain entourage” – an assessment which is foregrounded in rise of the intellectual movements of Historicism, New Historicism, and Cultural Materialism during late 1970s USA and early 1980s Britain.

In the decades following the Second World War, the American family assumed an unprecedented cultural and political importance in the life of the nation. Happy families were everywhere: beaming enthusiastically from magazine advertisements and indulging in wholesome hijinks on ubiquitous post-war sitcoms. However, while the typical post-war family may conjure up images of white picket fences, exuberant children playing on green lawns, and pies cooling on windowsills, a sinister reimagining of American domesticity emerged in the pages of pulp novels and popular magazines.

deadline for submissions:

Essays are invited from ecocritics, ecofeminists, ecopsychologists, Medievalists, and scholars for an anthology to be tentatively titled Eco D'Arthur: Green Camelot. The direction of current scholarhsip in ecocriticism focuses on science, ecology, and nature writing. More attention needs to be given to older literature, and in British literature, the medieval period. Though some attention has been given to Chaucer and to the period in general, there is relatively little ecocritical scholarship on Arthurian myth. This book- length work will analyze Arthurian myth through ecocritical/ecopsychological/ecofeminist perspectives. Indivudual essays might include:

The governing idea of the conference is Sights and Sites: Vision and Place in American Literature: What does it mean to envision the American landscape? What are the philosophical, psychological, and political factors that shape how writers look at a place and transform their perceptions into works of fiction, poetry, drama, travel writing, and autobiography? How does race, class, and gender influence the perception of natural and social sites?

Disability before disability in the medieval Icelandic sagas (ICMS, Kalamazoo 2019)

This panel will consider the ways in which disability is represented in medieval Icelandic literature, particularly in medieval saga writing. Panellists will engage with the concept of disability beyond the traditional bio-medical understanding of the term, exploring disability as a social phenomenon embedded in social arrangements and cultural conventions. They will seek to understand what constituted disability in medieval Icelandic society, culture, and history prior to the establishment of disability as a modern legal, bureaucratic and administrative concept.

CFP—British Crime Series

 

I am seeking chapter proposals for an edited collection on British television crime series. British crime / detective television series are a significant cultural export and have spawned international adaptations. Originally available primarily on public broadcasting stations for North American audiences (giving them a sort of high-brow standing in contrast to their American counterparts), they now form a significant number of programs on Netflix (produced not only by the BBC and ITV, but also in collaboration with Netflix).

 

Digital Italian

The field of digital humanities is still hard-to-define, and one open to many interpretations and ideas but also criticism. The term made its first appearance in A Companion to Digital Humanities in 2004, and it has become very popular ever since. However, although it is more and more common to see new courses on digital humanities, the application and delivery of this new area in Italian courses on culture, history and literature is rather limited. This panel seeks to fill this gap by seeking papers that explore different methodologies of traditional teaching with the use of digital resources in courses that also promote student acquisition of technology literacy and collaborative projects.

The clash of people and civilizations from East to West has been a particularly rich, varied, and intense development in history. Formulating new identities, while being surrounded by foreign space and native people, the traveler reflects the changing modes, times, and equally shifting cultural attitudes that can be found in a European’s travel writing. For instance, a glimpse across time into the city of Istanbul, held as a popular travel spot by visitors for centuries, reveals varied cultures, groups of people and their diverse linguistic uses, food choices, social norms and religious customs.

This session deals with film and history in Latin America. The films in discussion should reflect the major historical moments in the region beginning with the age of “discovery” and conquest, colonial rule and independent times.

Under this historical umbrella, the films in this session should address issues of civilización y barbarie, race, slavery, political persecution, misogyny, homophobia and revolution (among others). Participants should be cognizant that visual narratives dealing with race, class, gender, sexuality, language, nation, and identity reflect philosophical tenets prevalent in particular historical moments.

ACLA 2019: Injustice, Violence, and Witnessing

In this seminar we seek to explore stories and representations of injustice and violence that probe audiences’ ethical responsibilities and complicities.  What representational strategies have writers and artists used to challenge discursive frameworks that underpin erasures and exclusions and to invite readers and viewers to assess their implication in systematic injustices? What historical and contemporary responsibilities are excluded by current political discourses on violence and reconciliation? For example, how do the frameworks of mainstream western news and political discourses exclude discussion of North American and European roles in the conditions that precipitate current refugee movements?
