War / After War: Memory, Fear, Indifference

 

Rutgers University; New Brunswick, NJ

October 4-5

 

War as memory.  The fear of war.  War as experience.  How does culture mark its relationship to organized violent conflict?  

 

In 2018, Rutgers’ Nineteenth Century Workshop will address the long-lasting effects of war on nineteenth-century literature and culture.  It is a topic we take to be both urgent and of particular scholarly interest to students of the era.

Friday, May 11, 2018

Emmanuel Levinas writes extensively about the temptations of knowledge and the seductions of intelligibility and intentional consciousness as they enable a fascination for ontology, power, and war. For nearly 13 years, the North American Levinas Society has worked to preserve and focus this critique through social apertures that privilege questions of historical violence, transgenerational suffering, memory and repair.

Re-conceptualizing National Identity

In her article “Scales of Aggregation: Prenational, Subnational, Transnational,” Wai Chee Dimock asks some important questions “On what scale should we study the transnational? How does it mesh with the scale of the nation-state? How does it act upon the latter-and how is it in turn acted upon as a competing as well as a complementary regime of regulation?” Dimock recognizes that the transnational is in a dialogic relationship with the national. This view, however, seems to invite a vertical interpretation of this relationship.

The Centre for Textual Studies at De Montfort University in Leicester, England, is running a three-day international conference to  showcase and explore the latest methods for analyzing literary and historical texts using computers. A particular focus will be the ways in which literary and historical scholarship will turn increasingly algorithmic in the future as we invent wholly new kinds of questions to ask of our texts because we have wholly new ways to investigate them. The conference will bring together, and put into fruitful dialogue, scholars using traditional literary and historical methods and those exploring and inventing new computational methods, to their mutual benefit.

In her still influential Fantasy and Mimesis: Responses to Reality in Western Literature (1984), Kathryn Hume defines the literary fantastic as any departure from consensus reality, believing that it holds an equally significant position in literary history as mimesis. Rather than being a recent and sometimes academically marginalized genre, fantasy, for Hume, is integral to almost all literature.

15th International Connotations Symposium: Understanding (through) Annotations

Thursday, April 12, 2018 - 9:24am
Connotations: A Journal for Critical Debate
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 15, 2018

Explanatory annotations have always had a somewhat precarious and even paradoxical status: with a few exceptions, they have been considered “below” the concern of the theorist and literary critic, while in some sense they have also been considered “above” the sphere of the textual editor, who has eyed their flights of interpretive fancy with distrust. They have been suspected of manipulating the reader in a clandestine fashion while at the same time they have been regarded as a necessity, for they are an essential means of keeping alive many texts of world literature, from Homer to the Modernists, by making them comprehensible and meaningful to readers.
