WATER

The sea is calm tonight.

The tide is full, the moon lies fair

Upon the straits; on the French coast the light

Gleams and is gone; the cliffs of England stand,

Glimmering and vast, out in the tranquil bay.                     

(Matthew Arnold, “Dover Beach”)

The focus of this book is on the future of honors education - innovations, contemporary activities, programmatic developments, suggested trajectories. . . (Ideas welcome!). The intention is not to abandon the past, but to draw on that past, consider the present, and look to the (exciting!) future - as all wonderful honors education tends to do. ;-)

Friday, November 4, 2022

Modern Language Studies, the journal of the Northeast Modern Language Association, is seeking reviews for the winter and summer 2023 issues. In recent years, the temperature has risen around free speech debates, and books on censorship and free speech come out with such frequency that it is hard to keep abreast of the new scholarship. I am interested in receiving reviews and review essays on academic books that relate to free speech. The books to be reviewed can center on any historical, geographical, or disciplinary context, and the reviews and review essays can be written from (almost) any theoretical perspective.Keywords: free speech, freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of the press, liberty of the press, censorship.

The productivity of ‘negative emotions’ in postcolonial literatures

updated: 
Tuesday, November 8, 2022 - 9:35am
Isabelle Wentworth / University of New South Wales
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 1, 2022

Emotions, affect, and moods do not happen to us. Rather, we are our emotions: they configure our manner of relating to, and existing within the world. Ontologies of emotion—in their embodied and symbolic dimensions—alter our perceptions, experiences, and predictions of ourselves and our environment in ways which problematize inside/outside and mind/body dualities. This is also true of the so-called ‘negative emotions’. Studies of negative affect abound in the humanities, from Aristotle’s fear and pity, Heidegger’s angst, and Robert Burton’s melancholy, to Sartre’s nausea, Germaine Greer’s rage, Kristeva’s disgust, and, more recently, Sianne Ngai’s “ugly feelings.”
