2023 marks the fortieth anniversary of the initial publication of Sweet Valley High.

The Journal of Popular Romance Studies (JPRS) seeks articles for a special issue devoted to young adult series romance. These articles may focus on YA series romance from any historical period or language context, and may derive from any relevant discipline, including interdisciplinary approaches.

Possible topics may include, but are not limited to:

The Will before Psychoanalysis

Co-organizers: Andrea Gadberry and Gerard Passannante

Long before the emergence of a conceptual vocabulary that named the unconscious and its wishes—that adumbrated a modern subject’s desires, repetitions, and obsessions—there was a robust conversation about the faculty of the will: its powers, its vulnerabilities, their sources, and their bearing on experience. This seminar investigates willed and unwilled experiences across habits of feeling, vicissitudes in thought, and activities of the soul in literary and philosophical works prior to the advent of psychoanalysis.

Podcasting Culture: Re-inventing Audio Storytelling

Sunday, October 15, 2023

In a world saturated with images in which audiovisual storytelling has dominated for decades shaping the aesthetics and expectations of the audience, and in which binge-consuming TV series on digital platforms and homemade videos on social media have become the trend of the last few years, it is quite unexpected to witness the reemergence of a storytelling that resists visual representation.  Of course, audio storytelling is not new; Stories voiced for the ear to listen have been with us since early on, for as long as there have been stories to share. What has changed in recent years, whetting our story-listening appetite anew, are the computing technologies ever rapidly developed for audio production, distribution and reception.

Poetry has exploded off the page in recent decades, making a prominent home for itself in new semiotic and material environments. Poems circulate on subway systems, through platforms and apps, on placards at protests, in art museums, and the built environment. These poems, in turn, are composed in a variety of human and nonhuman languages, from Spanglish to mathematics, code to GPT-language models.

Lyric Excess: Capital, Nature, Life (NeMLA 2024, Boston)

updated: 
Thursday, September 14, 2023 - 1:52pm
Fiana Kawane / Northeast Modern Language Association Annual Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

What is the potential, liberatory or otherwise, of excess as a figure, motif, scene, or problem? Blake’s “road of excess” offers a counterpoint to an industrial-capitalistic ethos of productivity, frugality, and reason. Moreover, Bataille speaks of “excess” as a form of unproductive expenditure of energy under modernity. If “animatedness” (Ngai) operates as a racialized iteration of exaggerated affect, how does one read the overdetermined sentimentality of the lyric “I”? Lyric excess, then, invites an engagement with scenes of excess, or in other words exuberance, surplus, or waste, to rethink lyric poetry’s non-utilitarian possibilities in form and content.
