Why do we do what we do in the field of literary studies? Why does it matter? To whom? What redemptive or transformative work does literature do? When? Where? How? We invite reflection and conversation about the different kinds of work literature does to and through writers, readers, teachers, thinkers, and scholars. Our topic is intentionally broad as we seek to inspire, encourage, and celebrate the creation, interpretation, and appreciation of literature from any historical period and any genre. Our format is inclusive with panels for professors, graduate and undergraduate students, as well as scholars from multiple disciplines including English, Modern Languages, Theology, Education, Psychology, Science, and Humanities.

What do the words “Arab” and “Arabic” mean today? What have they meant historically? What continuities and ruptures do they signify in contemporary discourses of the Middle East? In a world in which conflict, migration, transnational movements, the blurring of borders, and (self-)translation have become everyday realities for millions of Arabs, these questions have attained new urgency. In this seminar, we explore the relationship between the Arabic language and Arab identity and community in the transnational contexts that have long defined both.

Sheera Talpaz (stalpaz@oberlin.edu)

In conceptualizing nationalism and “nation-ness,” Benedict Anderson considered not only their emergence and historical transformations but also “why […] they command such profound emotional legitimacy” (Anderson 2006, 4). Intrinsic to the widely accepted understanding of the nation as a politically powerful construct is its affective depth, which shapes the atmospheres, spaces, bodies, and relations of national life.

Call for Book Chapters: "A Vain Talent (?): Anne Brontë and the Question of Female Artistry

updated: 
Sunday, October 16, 2022 - 8:29pm
Vernon Press
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 1, 2022

We are seeking chapter submissions for an edited anthology on Anne Brontë and the question of female artistry. Though interest and scholarship in Anne has grown in recent years, the youngest Brontë sister is still the least known and researched. Her bicentennial in 2020 was interrupted by the pandemic, and so there was not the same celebration and promotion of her life and work as her sisters.

 

This anthology seeks chapters on the question of female artistry as it relates to Anne’s life and work. Topics may include (but are not limited to):

 

  • The art (paintings, sketches, etc.) of Anne Brontë

  • Anne Brontë’s artistry as an author
