ICMS 2025: Postpandemic discourse in literature and art (Virtual panel)

The Second Plague Pandemic inflicted unimaginable hurt and triggered multiple crises (demographic, spiritual, political, socio-economic), whose impact informed new artistic and literary modes of expression such as the danse macabre or the carnivalesque. 

This panel examines how writers and artists processed pandemic experiences, both in terms of actual outbreaks and long-term repercussions (such as peasant revolts or multi-generational trauma). Where do we find traces of ‘long plague’ (analogous to ‘long Covid’), and what form do they take? How do pandemic experiences affect collective memory and shared narratives? And what theoretical frameworks might be helpful for studying (post)pandemic discourse in literature and art?

CFP: Shoreline Shakespeares:
6th Conference of the Asian Shakespeare Association (Iloilo, 4-6 December 2024)

A shoreline is a dynamic border, being created, erased, and reshaped by the eternal dance of tide and time. It separates yet connects ecosystems, identities, and civilizations. Shorelines set boundaries but also open gateways to different experiences and perspectives. The shoreline serves as a focal point for exploration, transition, and adaptation. “Shoreline Shakespeares” welcomes papers that examine the literal and metaphorical meanings of the shoreline in Shakespeare and his afterlife. Topics may include, but are not restricted to:

The U.S. South is often a forgotten space within ecocritical discussions, yet it provides fruitful ground for thinking about environmental issues. In 2019, in the first edited collection of essays on the topic, Zachary Vernon notes that focusing attention on this bioregion might help “provide a way out of the limitations of thinking too locally or too globally,” and it might inspire a group of stakeholders to come to the table as well (7). One problem with ecocritical approaches is the long history of representing the U.S. South as an “internal other in the national imagination: colonized, subordinate, primitive, developmentally arrested, or even regressive” (Watson 254).

2027 would mark 80 years of the Partition of the Indian subcontinent of 1947. For South Asia, independence from over two centuries of British rule in 1947 was accompanied by a violent and bloody partition - a territorial division of two provinces of British India, Punjab and Bengal  - on the basis of religious majority, which led to a million people dead in bloody communal riots and fifteen million people uprooted and displaced across the newly-formed borders.

Fraught with moral, religious, racial, sexual, and transgressive configurations, the body is a potent site for reflective practices within popular culture. The self-reflexive matrix of popular culture’s representations of human body functions as a site for materializing possibilities of varying forms of living. As a cultural sign, body features in both normative and non-normative debates on identity, selfhood, social relations, power, institutional surveillance and regulation. The practice of its representations, on the other hand, traditionally enables a culture of shared meaning-making which shapes how an individual perceives, thinks, feels, and acts amidst the production and circulation of discourses.

Epic, History, and Philosophy in the Renaissance

Renaissance Society of America
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 31, 2024

Several prominent accounts of the end of epic attribute its demise to modernity. A society riven by contradictions cannot make epic poems. The incoherence of modernity baffles the grand aspirations of epic to tell the “tale of the tribe,” to compass an entire world and way of life in a single grand vision. That is one story of the end of epic in Western literature. The rise of natural philosophy, the disenchantment of the world and banishment of God to the gaps left by naturalistic accounts broke up the enchanted world that created epics, leaving in its wake elegiac mourning for the totality epic represented.

Panel: Identity in Verse: Poetry in the Seventeenth Century Atlantic

Thursday, August 15, 2024

This panel for the McNeil Center for Early American Studies May 2025 “Where is Early America?” conference invites papers on the relationship between poetry and identity, broadly conceived, in the seventeenth-century. Recent work on colonial English poetry has identified both ruptures and continuities between canonical early American English poetry and its metropolitan counterparts, upsetting strict delineation between “English” and “colonial” poetry. Likewise, scholars have identified the ways in which colonial ideology is inflected in such areas as amatory and religious verse written and read on both sides of the Atlantic.

Ever since Steven Russell, Wayne Wittanen, and J. M. Graetz, three MIT employees who fantasized about bringing Edward E. Smith’s (1890-1965) Skylark novels (1915-1966) to the big screen, developed Spacewar! (1961), one of the first digital games created and a clear inspiration for games that would be designed in the following decades, the game industry has grown exponentially. As Egenfeldt-Nielson et al. have stated (2024), “[i]n the historical blink of an eye, video games have colonized our minds and invaded our screens” (2).

Medieval Practices of Adaptation (ICMS 2025)

Amber Dunai
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 15, 2024

At no time has intellectual culture been more committed to the notion of prior “authority” than in the Middle Ages.  Yet medieval adaptations of earlier works and media objects, including classical and scriptural writings, are often boldly inventive: a paradox due for serious consideration.  Existing contributions to Adaptation Studies nearly always focus on post-medieval adaptation (such as modern adaptations of medieval sources).  In contrast, for this session we invite papers that redirect the insights of Adaptation Studies to build a more coherent sense of medieval ideas and practices of adaptation, especially in cases involving radical or unintuitive changes of language, medium, genre, style, context, or audience.
