Call for Book Chapters: “The Senses and Memory”

Vernon Press invites book chapters for an edited volume on the subject of “The Senses and Memory.”

In the field of sensory studies, the role of memory in sensory perceptions has always been a central preoccupation. From smell’s “Proust effect” to music’s ability to improve memory and mood, the senses are processed in the brain in particular ways that highlight the strong link between remembering and sensing the world. Likewise, the senses work in tandem, through synesthesia, to evoke feelings and sensations of a past event. The body plays a central role in navigating the world, and the senses provide routes to past, at times forgotten, memories.

RSA 2024 Chicago: The Stoic Renaissance

updated:

Renaissance Society of America
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 15, 2023

From the 1200s to 1600s, Stoicism was the antique philosophy that spread most rapidly in Europe. Reborn of secular tradition in cities where culture and politics were linked, classical literature, particularly that of Seneca, served as socio-political model. According to Ronald Witt, Padua’s literary legacy for example was an “eloquence without a conscience,” relying more upon Senecan Stoicism than Christian canon. The tragedies of Seneca would impact Renaissance drama, from Mussato’s Ecernis to both France and England. Oft-copied works of Marcus Aurelius, Epictetus, Plutarch, and Diogenes Laertius, among others, drove Stoicismas the principal of moral thought — from Machiavelli to Erasmus to Montaigne and Muret to Lipsius.

"No Ideas but in Things": Influences on Black Mountain Poetry

The Charles Olson Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 14, 2023

The Charles Olson Society will host panels at the upcoming Re-Viewing Black Mountain College Conference, to be held in Asheville, North Carolina, from October 13th-15th. William Carlos Williams’ well-known like, “No Ideas but in Things,” fits well with the conference theme this year, which focuses on materiality. For the poets associated with Black Mountain College – Charles Olson, Robert Duncan, Robert Creeley, John Wieners, Ed Dorn, Denise Levertov, and others – preceding modernist poets were figures to follow and to oppose in various ways. From Ezra Pound to Williams, Gertrude Stein to James Joyce, the modernist generation’s experimental practices inspired Black Mountain poetry while also creating tension.

This collection focuses on the cultural, global, political, and social narratives of future space(s).

We suggest that critiques of narratives and discourses about digital and virtual spaces,

artificial intelligence, space exploration, and even the colonization of space and planets can

provide needed insights about global futures, especially as they inform how we ought to and who

ought to live in the present with environmental destruction, information capitalism,

neoliberalism, and the remaining infrastructures of colonialism. The works here complicate the

Tolkien’s Medievalism in Ruins: The Function of Relics and Ruins in Middle-earth

updated: 
Tuesday, May 9, 2023 - 4:42am
Nick Katsiadas and Carl Sell / Slippery Rock University and University of Pittsburgh
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2023

Many notable scholars have probed the motif of ruins in ancient and medieval texts: Alain Schnapp, Alan Lupack, Geoffrey Ashe, and Richard Barber read the poetics of ruins in Latin poetry, the Exeter Book, and Arthuriana. Scholars working outside of the Classical Age and Middle Ages have also examined how this topos persists in literary periods up through the Renaissance, Romanticism, and to today. In short, the structural and symbolic purposes of ruins in literary texts have a long history, and the literary-critical history of engaging these poetics influences our interests in essays grounded in reading relationships between literary history and relics and ruins in Tolkien’s legendarium.

Approximately one year ago, on May 2, 2022, a draft decision leaked from the US Supreme Court confirmed what many had feared: that the highest US court was set to overturn the 1973 decision Roe vs. Wade and roll back protections governing women’s rights. Almost immediately after, appointment books and clinics began to close in multiple US states. This situation was far from isolated; in the U.K., for example, pandemic gains for women in access to early at-home abortion rolled back on August 29th, 2022. As these and other examples from around the world demonstrate, the present moment appears to be one of regression and regulation.

International Conference on Poetry Studies: "Poetry Between Creation and Interpretation"

Tuesday, May 9, 2023 - 4:37am
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2023

Poetry is a constant, being produced by all known civilisations from ancient to modern times. Throughout its extensive history, the individual art of high emotions sublimated into perfect language has approached a vast array of subject matters, including love, war, social issues, the beauty of nature, etc. A particular exercise of the mind and soul, and a unique way of apprehending reality, poetry is a self-sufficient universe that intensifies and enlarges life experience. Pointing to inner knowledge rather than real circumstance, it activates different layers of perception, sweeps away human thoughts, feeds emotions and soothes suffering.

"Narratives of Displacement" International Conference

updated: 
Tuesday, May 9, 2023 - 4:37am

deadline for submissions:

The conference seeks to explore the narratives of displacement and to demonstrate the validity of a cross-disciplinary approach which brings together the historical, cultural, social and literary expertise in the handling of text. The conference will particularly focus on time and space representations and on treatment of the theme of cultural ambivalence and identity conflict. The subject of displacement will be regarded as both a migration, voluntary or forced, and a sense of being socially or culturally “out of place”.

Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:
