CFP: Little Magazines and the Visual Arts in Modernism (4/20/06; MSA, 10/19/06-10/22/06)

"Little Magazines and the Visual Arts"

 

The arrival of modernism in the visual arts, for British and American audiences alike, is often equated simply with urban spectacles that drew critical viewers en masse - in Britain, the 1910 exhibition of "Monet and the Post-Impressionists," and in America, the 1913 New York Armory Show. This panel seeks to complicate these assumptions by considering the role that visual reproductions and verbal descriptions of art have played in shaping the conception of what we have come to know as modernism.

CFP
The Nellie Tree: Reflections on the Life of Nellie Y. McKay

Recently, one of the central figures in African-American and Black Women¹s
literary studies, Nellie Y. McKay, passed away. Over the course of her
nearly forty years as an academic, she was one of the premier champions of
African-American literature, particularly the role of its women, as part of
the American canon.

I have proposed the following panel for the upcoming meeting of the
Northeast American Society for Eighteenth Century Studies (9-12 Nov.
2006, in Salem, Mass.) and am soliciting proposals for papers:

Chapbooks and Knowledge in 18c Britain

How did references to, and/ or knowledge of, chapbooks figure in 18c
redefinitions of knowledge? How did those participating self-
consciously in "Enlightenment" describe chapbooks and their readers,
and how did such descriptions figure in the production, consumption,
and assessment of different kinds of print products?

Pressure to Experiment

A two day international conference on experimentation in contemporary writing

Organised by the Centre for Contemporary Writing

To be held at the University of Southampton, UK on
28th and 29th September 2006

This conference explores the role of literary experimentation in contemporary
writing. After nearly a hundred years of modernism we ask what purpose and
meaning we now attribute to experimentation in fiction, in poetry and in
critical thought. Specific questions to be addressed include:

What are the contemporary aesthetic, political, and cultural pressures on
experimentation?

Call for Submissions on Home/lessness

Locus Suspectus, a new magazine of art and culture, seeks textual and
visual proposals for its second issue exploring the notion of "home".
Globalization has made it increasingly difficult to conceive of home
as a
singular and stable location. Moreover, home for many individuals often
exists as a constant state of homelessness due to social, economic, and
political circumstances. Despite this plurality of meaning, home often
carries with it a nostalgic longing for stasis and a pressure and
tendency
to identify ourselves and others largely in terms of where we live and
where we have come from.
