"Exaltadas: A Female Genealogy of Transcendentalism" (Special journal issue; proposals due 15 March 2010)

Tuesday, July 7, 2009 - 8:22pm
ESQ: A Journal of the American Renaissance (Washington State University)

Margaret Fuller's bicentennial approaches in 2010, and plans for celebration affirm her arrival (or return) as a member of the American transcendentalist "pantheon." But scholarship on the formative and reformative influence of other women on the movement has only recently begun to quicken. Recognizing this new wave of exploration and following a line of inquiry suggested by ESQ's 2003 special issue, "Reexamining the American Renaissance," the editors of the journal and guest editor Phyllis Cole invite submissions for a substantial thematic issue that will broadly conceptualize the role of women in the origin and evolution of transcendentalist thought and action.

[UPDATE] The Politics of Nature and Wilderness in the Middle Ages (45th Medieval Congress at Kalamazoo)

updated: 
Tuesday, July 7, 2009 - 2:18pm
Oregon Medieval English Literature Society

Jennifer Neville's "Representations of the Natural World in Old English Poetry" and Gillian Rudd's "Greenery: Ecocritical Readings of Late Medieval English Literature" are examples of the growing interest in ecocritical readings of medieval literature. The ways medieval writers thought about and interacted with nature and wilderness are important and relevant in regard to other conceptual frames and formulations that governed medieval thought and behavior. Papers in this panel will address the representations of nature in medieval texts as they pertained to and promoted political ideologies and programs of instruction or colonization. Papers on English and Continental literature are welcome.
