Coauthoring the Early Modern Period

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 1, 2022

Why study the early modern period? Most academics of earlier periods have encountered this question in one form or another. This question seems especially pressing when it comes to teaching. For many of us, it is our goal to have monographs published by university presses and spend summers conducting research in archives. But the reality is that a large part of our day-to-day impact as scholars is on the undergraduate students we encounter as instructors, usually teens and young adults. This panel is interested in engaging in a conversation about how teaching undergraduate students impacts our scholarship in early modern studies.

Better State Forms (MLA 2023)

Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 11, 2022

We need to rethink the state. No one loves to hate the state more than a humanist. Yet does this critique serve us well? What do we mean by “the” state? Humanities scholars often take for granted a unified and homogenous idea of the state as a basis for critique. The settler colonial state, the necropolitical state, the neoliberal state; or perhaps less negatively, the welfare state, the developmentalist state, the liberal state. As this plethora of familiar models suggests, it should be impossible to talk about “the” state as a singular form, to equate it with one function or to define it by one pattern of experience. And yet such singular imaginaries often underpin humanistic engagement with the state.

Eighteenth-Century Women's Writing

updated: 
Friday, February 25, 2022 - 3:42am
Workshop on eighteenth-century women's writing and the novel genre
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 30, 2022

Eighteenth-century women’s writing has attracted critical attention in recent years and the rise of the novel genre has faced reconsideration and re-evaluation accordingly. The fiction of women writers such as Eliza Haywood, Aphra Behn, Delariver Manley, and Penelope Aubin has undergone new editions and has come under critical focus to question their relationship to the canon and to theories of the novel. This workshop focuses on women writers alongside the canonical writers of the long eighteenth century and invites talks on various aspects of eighteenth-century novel. Talks on the intertextual relationships between canonical writers and non-canonical women writers and on theories of the novel are especially welcome.
