The Renaissance is universally acknowledged to be a crucial moment in Europe for the development of vernacular national languages which begin to establish their prestige alongside Latin. Historical linguists have focused on the many interesting peculiarities of the European vernaculars in this period, such as the high degree of spelling fluctuation, (non-)lexicalisation of words, phonological and morphological adjustments, semantic shifts, etc. When it comes to diachronic approaches to corpus linguistics, however, scholars are sometimes sceptic about the possibilities offered by machine-readable samples of both literary and non-literary texts belonging to the Renaissance.

“I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.”
~ John Masefield

Panel proposed at the 2023 ASLE + AESS Conference: “Reclaiming the Commons”

July 9-12, 2023 in Portland, Oregon

Environmental disasters along with lack of resources and global recession are increasingly rendering many parts of the globe inhabitable and forcing the displacement of billions of people. While large corporations and the global north – directly responsible for the climate crisis– refuse to take responsibility for the ecological breakdown, a narrative casting the blame on vulnerable and marginalized communities has been reemerging. In their attempt to “reclaim the commons” the far right has been reframing the climate crisis through the lens of race while calling for environmental cleansing.

To say that Ukraine has a complicated relationship with Russia is an understatement: the region was under direct rule in the imperial period, experienced a period of freedom after 1917, followed by repressive rule through large periods of the Soviet era, and then regained independence in 1991. Now, Ukraine faces Russian hostility and the violation of its territorial integrity, which began in February 2014 with the occupations of the Crimea and Donbas region.

Tip-tap on your window, a nightmare comes to taunt you. It starts slowly, softly, building intensity through the dead of night. A thunderbolt of fright strikes through you; you tremble under the covers alone in the dark with creatures of the night, the perpetrators of your restless, anxiety-ridden slumber. Are you brave enough to explore fear a little closer? If you are, then we want to hear about which monsters lurk in your closet, and even the ones that hide under your bed and inside your head.

Critical conversations concerned with ecosystems often relate to various geos (-logies, -graphies, etc.), the anthropocene, and the techno-industrial. Yet, as Elizabeth Povinelli astutely questions, “[have] we become so entranced by the image of power working through life [namely biopolitics and its variations] that we haven’t noticed the new problems, figures, strategies and concepts emerging all around us…?” (4). The fluidity of ‘systems’ - whether they be ecological, political, social, etc.

EXTENDED- UMD GEO Annual Conference: Binaries

updated: 
Friday, December 2, 2022 - 3:16pm
University of Maryland Graduate English Organization
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, December 20, 2022

The University of Maryland’s Graduate English Organization invites proposals on the topic of “Binaries” for our 16th annual conference, to be held hybrid/in-person on March 3rd, 2023.

Coming from the Latin bīnārius, the Oxford English Dictionary defines “binary” as “Of, pertaining to, characterized by, or compounded of, two; dual.” While this can be seen on one hand as collaborative and additive, binaries are also often understood as oppositional or dichotomous.These competing definitions, then, form a complicated interpretational binary.

EXTENDED DEADLINE - Disruptive Entanglements: Transnational Considerations of Performance and Adaptation

The Harbour Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 16, 2022

At times, there is a dissonance between what is considered the ‘original’ narrative and its adapted form. For example, the release of Neil Gaiman’s adaptation of his own work, The Sandman, caused controversy amongst those who had read the comic book series, mainly for the casting decisions of actors such as Kirby Howell-Baptiste who played Death and Jennifer Coleman who played Constantine, as their original characters in the comics where white or/and male. In the same vein, Amazon’s recent adaptation of Tolkien’s work, Rings of Power, creates tensions between fans of the author and a modern audience who may not be familiar with the source material because of the discrepancies between the two versions.
