New Directions in Feminist and Queer Readings of Medieval French Literature: A Session in Honor of Simon Gaunt

Medieval French LLC, MLA
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 15, 2022

Simon Gaunt’s research interests were remarkably varied: from Romance philology to psychoanalysis, postcolonial studies, and beyond. This panel honors one important part of his legacy: his groundbreaking feminist and queer readings of medieval literature. Two of his monographs stand out in this regard. The influential Gender and Genre in Medieval French Literature (1995)offers a remarkably broad map of the ways whereby different genres—chansons de geste, romance, troubadour lyrics, hagiography, and fabliaux—both construe and trouble notions of masculinity and femininity. Love and Death in Medieval French and Occitan Literature: Martyrs to Love (2006) is concerned with the interplay of death and desire in courtly texts.

Building Professional Dispositions for Undergraduate Humanities Majors

MLA 2023 // San Francisco, CA (5-8 Jan. 2023)
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 15, 2022

Professional development prepares humanities majors for post-baccalaureate success and undermines myths about weak career outcomes, yet too often, it remains an afterthough rather than an integral component of undergraduate curricula. Furthermore, increasing professional development opportunities for undergraduates also has programmatic benefits for recruitment and retention, not least becuase such programs better equip faculty and students to more effectively articulate the value of the humanites to public life, and the applicability of humanities across public, private, and volunteer sectors.

Talking Place: A Symposium

CALL FOR PAPERS

Is place central to your work, your creativity, or your understanding?

This symposium, organised by WomenTalkPlace and supported by the Centre for Place Writing at Manchester Metropolitan University, will provide a platform for conversations between those who find inspiration from their environment, whether that be the countryside, the city, or the places in between. The relationship with place might inspire acts of creativity, philosophical debate, or be a guide for day-to-day living. Sometimes this might engender a feeling of connection, but also less comfortable and more problematic responses.

Between Heaven and Ground: exploring new atmospheres

 

The atmosphere is an ever-present component of the Earth, and although airy and diffuse, gives rise to an endless multiplicity of realisations, affects and presences. The epistemological and ontological vagueness of the atmosphere belies the criticality of the atmosphere as central to conditions of being (both human and more-than-human), and as a material site for attention and attunement. As Lyall Watson writes in Heaven’s Breath, ‘the more we learn about our atmosphere, the more substantial it becomes… close to being a living tissue in its own right’ (1985: 146).

The concept of evil received much attention throughout the 20th century. Despite the industrial scale atrocities committed in Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia, and Maoist China, alongside the genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Rwanda, as well as the explosion of serial killers like Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Andrei Chikatilo in the latter part of the 20th century, the first two decades of the 21st century have been largely unconcerned with rigorous discussion of such evil.

MLA 2023: Histories of Childhood and Medicine

updated: 
Tuesday, January 25, 2022 - 11:57am
Mary Gryctko / Northeastern University
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 1, 2022

This panel investigates the centrality of childhood to the rapidly changing medical and scientific landscape of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, an era that saw the development of Darwin’s theories of evolution, the rise of wide-spread support within the scientific community for eugenics, and the medicalization of birth, of neurodivergence, and of gender and sex. Papers will interrogate how various scientific/medical discourses used actual children as subjects, and how these discourses relied on the imagined figure of the child to bolster scientific claims around “naturalness,” plasticity, race, and gender, and to justify invasive medical practices performed on both children and adults.
