Enclosing the Commons:

Resistance and Rebellion in Late Medieval and Early Modern England

ASLE/AESS 2023 Call for Papers - Sponsored by the Oecologies Research Group

 

Between 1066 and the nineteenth century, the practice of enclosure transformed the economy and ecology of England, as lands traditionally held in common were, through a variety of processes both formal and informal, transformed into private property. Implicated in the development of capitalism and the Agricultural Revolution, the enclosure movement has had a profound influence on how land use is conceptualized and practiced in the modern world.

“Bright and Beautiful and Alive”: Willa Cather’s New York Intersections

18th International Cather Seminar June 21-23, 2023 The New School | New York, NY

Despite her dominant association with the Great Plains, Willa Cather lived most of her life in New York City (1906-1947), first in Greenwich Village and later, after she had risen to the top of the literary profession, on Park Avenue on the upper east side. Though Cather only occasionally wrote about the city, it was her home for nearly forty years and a key element of her personal and professional life.

Jamesian Space (American Literature Association)

Sarah Wadsworth / Henry James Society
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 10, 2023

In the aftermath of the spatial turn in literary studies, we look for fresh approaches to Jamesian spaces, material and metaphorical, real and imaginary. James’s texts have explicit spatial dimensions. Whether as settings aesthetically conceived or as sites of cultural, social, and political signification, spaces in James constitute means of thematic as well as formal exploration and even experimentation. From the Roman Colosseum to the “house of fiction” and from the “chamber of consciousness” to the “jolly corner” and the “amazing hotel-world,” James’s literary geography emphatically asserts the dynamic relations between space, subjectivity, and text.

Old Language(s), New Technologies: Corpus Linguistics and European Languages in the Renaissance, 1400s-1600s

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 31, 2022

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.
