The Marilynne Robinson Society and the American Religion and Literature Society (ARLS) will hold a joint panel at the annual American Literature Association Conference (May 25-28, 2022; Boston, MA).  We are seeking papers that examine the author’s relationship to American evangelicalism.  Robinson’s spiritual vision has been shaped by the writings of Jonathan Edwards, who is considered to be the founding father of American evangelicalism.  How does Robinson’s body of work lead us to think critically about the evangelical tradition in the United States?  How do her essays and novels, particularly Gilead, provide a counter-narrative to the discourses found in modern and contemporary American evangelicalism?  In what ways can they respond to the inc

As Russia began its invasion of Ukraine earlier this year, we saw a massive outpouring of
support and statements of solidarity from different corners of the globe. This news brought
conflict to the fore of white, US- and Euro-centric consciousness in a way that Palestine,
Kashmir, Yemen, Somalia, Afghanistan, and Armenia had failed to do. This impulse to
selectively engage and empathize invites a careful consideration of which conflicts find space
and articulation in particular discourses and, perhaps more importantly, which do not. We invite
you to think with us on conflict - excavate the ways in which it challenges or reinforces

Negation | Call for papers
Graduate student conference, dept. of German Studies, Brown University | Feb. 17 & 18, 2023 | in person

What “no” does, is not nothing. This proposition implies that we have understood what it is to say no, that its effects are predictable, and that it is involved with “doing,” with “being,” and with “things.” It also asks us to answer the question: what is “not-no,” and what is “yes”? Negation is not only not- positing, but, depending on the thinker, it is the engine of history, the enigma of the will, the guarantor or violator of being, the weapon of oppression, the foothold of theology, the urgent task of language.

Conference "Antropocene 4800. Letteratura, ambiente: ecocritica"

Saturday, January 15, 2022

In July 2022, some meteorologists renamed the most extreme of the heat waves with the name of "Apocalypse 4800", in reference to the exceptional temperatures recorded at high altitudes and the consequent rise of the freezing level at the summit of Monte Bianco (4800 meters). Net of a rhetoric rooted in a series of contradictory emotions – that place human subject between «fear and domination, veneration and control» (Scaffai 2016) towards nature – it is undeniable how the current climate crisis leads us to reflect on the precarious equilibrium of the Anthropocene (Crutzen 2002). But in becoming culturally dominant (Benedetti 2021), the Anthropocene raises further questions about the role of literature and storytelling in a broader sense.

Horror literature’s resurgence in recent years has yielded huge results for the genre - not only a proliferation of new and diverse horror fictions but also an interest in reclaiming critically dismissed titles of the past. Whether disdained as pulpy trash or ignored for appealing to youth demographics, a large swathe of pre-2000s horror literature has frequently been deemed unworthy of critical analysis.
