Labour in the Long Nineteenth Century (Southampton, UK)

updated: 
Thursday, September 21, 2023 - 9:50am
Romance, Revolution & Reform
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 30, 2023

The study of labour in the long nineteenth century has enjoyed a rich critical history, guided by the twentieth century’s New Left focus on class formation and experience, and extended in more recent years by scholarship which has diversified traditional and non-traditional categorisations of ‘labour’. This conference seeks to question the thinking by which we identify forms of labour in the first place: who, both in the nineteenth century and now, is allowed to decide what counts as labour? Which voices of the long nineteenth century emerge if we diversify our definition(s) of labour? And, how can the scholarship of labour – or the labour of scholarship – help us navigate the nature, purpose, and value of labour in a post-Covid era?

deadline for submissions:

What can quantification, statistics, and algorithms contribute to our understanding of literary works, trends, or history? How can engagement with data be productive, contributing to traditional research strategies by adding more options of interpretation and analysis? We welcome proposals for an edited volume on the possibilities – and limitations – of applying computational methodologies to the study of modern Hebrew literature from the Haskalah to contemporary times, all genres, including translation studies.

 

Please send abstracts by December 1, 2023 (500 words, and preliminary bibliography) in which you define your project: corpus, methodology, innovation, context, and connection to traditional literary study.

Victorian Realism and Crime

Victorian Realism and Crime Special Issue
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 31, 2023

The definition of literary realism and the key features of Victorian realist novels have long been the subject of debate. However, most would agree that Victorian realist texts have traditionally focused on the lived experience of everyday people, representing the observable world and embracing literal representation of it, and using it to present social commentary prescient to the real world it is designed to reflect.

CFP—Romantic Boundaries (Special issue of Romantic Textualities)

updated: 
Thursday, September 21, 2023 - 9:41am
Romantic Textualities
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 10, 2023

This June, the BARS Early Career and Postgraduate Conference gathered researchers from around the globe to celebrate and to appreciate Romanticism and its legacies at the University of Edinburgh by exploring the theme of ‘boundaries’ within the context of Romantic-period literature and thought. The Oxford English Dictionary defines the term ‘boundary’ as: ‘That which serves to indicate the bounds or limits of anything whether material or immaterial; also the limit itself.’ Such a term seems at odds with the spirit of Romanticist thought, which has long been associated with mobility and boundlessness.

NeMLA 2024: El archivo del futuro: memes, influencers y otras narrativas de la viralidad

Alexandra Mira
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

Este panel invita a explorar la cultura de internet del mundo hispanohablante y sus representaciones en producciones artísticas. El meme fue acuñado por el biólogo Richard Dawkins en 1976 para referirse a la difusión de “tunes, ideas, catch- phrases, clothes fashions, ways of making pots or builduing arches” (249) mediante procesos de imitación. Décadas más tarde, el estudio de Patrick Davison (2012) corroboraría que la idea de “meme” había evolucionado gracias a las redes sociales y había pasado a tener el poder de exclusivamente cumplir un objetivo humorístico. Autores como B. E. Wiggins y G. Bret Bowers (2014) argumentan que la circulación del meme es una herramienta conversacional que alienta la participación de la cultura digital.

Feeling brown, being down. Feeling down, being brown. As we understand it, brown indexes operations of law, affect, sexuality, relation, empire(s), capital. Brown can function as an accusation or a convenience. Brown can name shades and fantasy. This proposed seminar considers when brown as an analytic becomes useful and may be used to do the work of relation, inquiry, theory—and when brown does not work.

Special dossier | to be published in vol 5 no 2 (May 2024)

A fundamental element of the American imaginary, superhero and heroic narratives have seen a new apogee since the turn of the century. New and old heroes and heroines have populated popular culture, giving rise to a variety of texts that tackle diversity, nostalgia, and the need for imaginaries and narratives that help us deal with the struggles inherent to our current times.

This special dossier, edited by Marica Orrù, will collect essays on (super)hero figures in twenty-first century US popular culture, with a specific focus on diversity, cross-genre texts, and transmedia representations.
