Whether he parodied, plagiarized, appropriated, translated, borrowed, or critiqued, Oscar Wilde’s work contains a web of references that vigorously engages with the voices of others. The way Wilde spoke with and through his sources may reveal not only his own influences and allegiances, but also aspects of larger conversations within late Victorian culture involving artistic production, Decadence, theater, journalism, scholarship, poverty, gender issues, sexuality, prison reform, and more.

"W(h)ither the Christian Right?” Papers are invited for a Post45 Contemporaries cluster on the U.S. Christian Right and literature. Recent evidence suggests the evangelical share of the population may be decreasing, but its political power so far has not waned and it is geared for apocalyptic combat. Momentarily defeated but unbowed like their champion President Trump, conservative white Christians have not received much attention in literary studies.

This collection will provide college-level instructors with short, provocative, and practical essays on new, antiracist methods for teaching poetry. We’re keen to identify outmoded approaches that need to be unsettled, and we invite you to write against their inadequate, outdated, toxic, and downright racist effects. Ultimately, Unsettling Poetry Pedagogy seeks to put antiracist teaching and research directly in conversation with each other, offering productive, tangible ways for poetry classrooms to confront social injustice.

Reimagining Asian American Immigration History in the Americas

Asian American immigrants’ heterogeneity in their countries of departure, race, ethnicity, and class characterizes different immigrant experiences -- ranging from “voluntary” immigration to dislocation directly caused by wars and imperialism. What is the role of literature in preserving the history of their movements? How does literature reimagine the history of these marginalized subjects? What is the significance of narrating Asian American immigration history through literary forms? What do the stories of these subjects -- immigrants, refugees, undocumented immigrants, elite cosmopolitan, and many more -- suggest the meaning of belonging in the Americas?

Proust’s Way: Theorisations, Hybridisations, Mythologies

The centenary of Proust’s death next year is neither the only, nor the first event in honour of the author of In Search of Lost Time. This year, for instance, we celebrate the 150th birthday of his birth while, in 2013, the 100th anniversary of the publication of Swann’s Way was marked by a number of festivities. In its celebratory dimension, this upcoming centenary may seem more apt for initiatives conducted under the ambit of French Studies than under that of semiotics or narratology. However, we believe that it offers an opportunity for a broader, trans-disciplinary reflection.
