Configurations of Friday’s Body

A Special Issue of the Nordic Journal of English Studies

Ed. by Patrick Gill and Jakub Lipski

When Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe was published in 1719, it confronted readers with a newly developed realism expressed, among other things, through the detailed description of its characters’ worlds and bodies. The connection between mind and body or physical and spiritual world was more than allegorical to eighteenth-century readers: it represented a literal and immediate correspondence, so that discourses of the body in much eighteenth-century fiction can be read as material figurations of character.

CFP:Dark Academia: Definitions, Theories, and Prospects

updated: 
Tuesday, January 18, 2022 - 9:50am
Cody Jones-- NYU
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 1, 2022

We are seeking essays and papers for an edited collection which engages the concept of ‘dark academia.’ 

At the center of the dark academic sensibility lies a paradox: though dark academia enjoys the cosmetic trappings of the pursuit of higher knowledge, it is at its core a celebration of the university as a place of occultation and performativity. The dark academic’s taste for mystery, history, and a distinctly Anglophone, Romantico-Modernist canon – coupled with an equally distinct early 20th century sartorial and lifestyle model – runs inevitably into exclusivity, elitism, and reactionary nostalgia. Indeed, the case can be made that these very elements are in fact constitutive of dark academia, as such.

Sue Matheson / University College of the North
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 15, 2022

I am currently soliciting abstracts of 250 words for essays to be included in a book which will examine the richness and relevance of Mel Brooks’ body of work, from its beginnings in stand-up comedy and improvisation, the broad farce and parody for which Brooks is so well known, his forays into drama and his success on Broadway. I welcome proposals that foreground Brooks’ significant contributions to American culture and comedy. Proposals may examine an individual or a number of Brooks’ works, Brooks’ work as a comedian or a dramatist, and Brooks as a writer, actor, director, or producer of television, film or on Broadway.

What happens when the images come into the world? With or without its consent, civil society has been constantly imaged, recorded, documented, archived and exhibited. This omnipresence of images created, circulated, and displayed merits an analysis of the multiplicity of its forms and its roots.

'What Does the Poem Think?': Aesthetics, Poetics, and Thought

Two hundred years ago, P. B. Shelley wrote in his Defence of Poetry that the language of poets ‘is vitally metaphorical; that is, it marks the before unapprehended relations of things.’ Poetry, which is ‘not like reasoning, […] creates anew the universe, after it has been annihilated in our minds by the recurrence of impressions blunted by reiteration.’ In this way, Shelley gave enduring expression to what S. T. Coleridge had hinted at three years earlier, when he complained in Pope of ‘matter and diction […] characterized not so much by poetic thoughts, as by thoughts translated into the language of poetry.’ Poetry apprehends, formulates, creates, and cognizes in a manner unique to itself and irreducible to any other forms of reasoning or reflection.

In Episode 9 of James Joyce's Ulysses, “Scylla and Charybdis,” Stephen Dedalus develops a theory about the origins of Shakespeare’s works that is both original and controversial. It is in the National Library of Ireland that Dedalus, in a wild and winding conversation, develops his ‘Hamlet theory’. The episode stages the strong and sometimes comic appeal of a biographical approach to Shakespeare’s works and, at the same time, casts Dedalus – Joyce’s alter ego – variously as Hamlet, Hamlet’s father, Shakespeare, and as a modern-day Ulysses.
