From the ghostly sight of Julian of Norwich and Hamlet's 'mind's eye' to the rapturous idyll of Coleridge's Xanadu and the apocalyptic prophecies of Yeats's 'The Second Coming'-vision, its constraints, and revelatory possibilities have served as a creative wellspring for writers across time. Indeed, amongst the oldest and most formative motifs across literature is the visionary author, whose prophetic (in) sight transports us beyond the mundane. Meanwhile, simply adding the prefix 're' reminds us of another central yet undersung facet of authorship: revision. What drives textual (re)visions, and how do these in turn shape reception? We seek to explore literary

Issue 7: Labour in the Long Nineteenth Century

The study of labour in the long nineteenth century has enjoyed a rich critical history, guided by the twentieth century’s New Left focus on class formation and experience, and extended by recent scholarship which has diversified traditional and non-traditional categorisations of ‘labour’. Scholars working within the postcolonial and ecocritical ‘turn’ have called for a re-imagining of the structures of labour, resource consumption, and value production, looking to the nineteenth century for its complexly-interwoven transfers of labour value across domestic and imperial boundaries.

From Ovid to Covid: Investigating the Global Environmental Issues in Art, Culture and Literature

Editors: Dr. PARTHA SARATHI MANDAL and Mr. DAYAL CHAKRABORTTY
deadline for submissions:

Concept Note: In 1989, in WLA conference when Glotfelty first used the term ‘ecocriticism ’ and subsequently edited The Ecocriticism Reader with Harold Fromm, the global literary circle had had a new way of discourse. The narrative of the study of the relationship between art/culture/literature and the physical environment had been shifted from the human centric romantic approach to nature to the narrative of the biocentric approach to nature. It started to interrogate the role of human imagination in literature as well. This shift in approach fathered some naturecentric ecological narratives like Deep Ecology.

Masks and Masking (Hybrid Conference)

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 16, 2024

Masks have been used throughout history for many different purposes. Some use literal masks for entertainment and performance; some use them for cunning and disguise; others use figurative masks to hide their true identities from those around them. As we consider trends—and shifts in those trends—in literature, theory, criticism, and academia, we must analyze the utility of masks to determine why people have needed them and still need them.

 

IUP’s English Graduate Organization is proud to announce the 2024 EGO Spring Conference with the theme: Masks and Masking. For this conference, we will be utilizing the hybrid format (both in-person and via Zoom) to accommodate everyone and encourage those from outside of IUP to join us as well.

Of the six official actors to have portrayed James Bond, Timothy Dalton is perhaps the least discussed. While Timothy Dalton’s tenure as 007 has often been overlooked by scholars, his two films have recently received critical reappraisal by both fans and critics. As such, The Living Daylights (1987) and License to Kill (1989) occupy an integral place within Bond canon and are now considered beloved by many fans.
