With the advent of capitalism, always gendered and racialised, as a mode of production, profound changes have taken place in the ways in which various societies, human relations and ecosystems have evolved (Moore, 2016, Kaplan 2009). Technological development has always been integral to the directions and configurations of capitalism, as it has evolved over the last three centuries. Further, the globalisation of capitalism, with the imperialist phase of European expansionism, followed by US-American expansionism as well as later, in the emergence of Chinese state capitalism, has brought technology to the front and centre of social, economic and political relations at every level (Lewis, 2022).

Anaïs Nin is a 20th-century diarist and writer who endlessly inspires other authors while generating interest, enthusiasm, and debate among many literary critics and readers.

Cambridge University Press (CUP) has shown interest in the future edited volume Anaïs Nin in Context. This collection aims to delve even further into the exploration of Anaïs Nin as a woman and a writer, her cosmopolitanism, and her influence. In addition, as part of CUP In Context book series, the future Anaïs Nin in Context must have around 30-35 book chapters arranged in different sections and explore contextual aspects of Nin’s life and literary production, instead of the close reading and examination of her literary production.

This year's theme is “Translation in Action.” While most scholarship about translation deals with the interlingual, we welcome scholarship on the other areas discussed by Roman Jakobson such as intralingual and intersemiotic translation. We plan on celebrating the work of a wide range of scholars and translators such as Michael Cronin, Moira Inghilleri, and many others. We seek proposals dealing with translation as a diverse set of practices, a dynamic field of study, and a set of complex networks that affect our lives. Once again, we are open to a variety of interests, but for this year, we are especially interested in proposals on the theme of “Translation in Action.”

Student Engagement with Theory in the Undergraduate and Dual Enrollment Classroom

Teaching literary analysis invariably includes learning activities involving reading, deciphering, and applying theory to a text understudy. For many undergraduate and dual- or cross-enrolled students, this activity is no small feat. Rather than tossing critical theory to the wayside as "too tough," we persevere! This session seeks presentations from educators who have had varying degrees of success bringing critical theory into their humanities courses. In order to render accessible to students the complex and insightful ideas sandwiched within the academic jargon of critical theory, how are we translating the rigor into palpable bites?

Inviting Presences: Intratextual Subjectivities in Early Modern Women’s Writing

Sixteenth Century Society Conference

Friday, April 12, 2024

Surveying the absence on her shelf where Elizabethan women’s writing ought to be, Virginia Woolf (in)famously dismissed the possibility of Shakespeare’s sister ever finding “a room of her own” to develop her voice. Recent decades of literary scholarship have shown the invention with which early modern women built out their own textual “rooms,” finding voice in surprising places and forms (even in silence, as Christina Luckyj heard [2002]), in visions of new political subjectivities (in a radically equal imaginary, as seen by Mihiko Suzuki [2003]), and through networks of overlooked community (in coteries and in letters, as traced by James Daybell [2006]).
