Literary Texts as Raciolinguistic Projects?

The emerging field of "raciolinguistics" brings together linguistics, education, sociology, critical race theory, anthropology, and other fields, in an effort to jointly theorize race and language, "paying particular attention to how both social processes mediate and mutually constitue each other" (3). In what ways do literary texts facilitate, complicate, and negotiate the joint formation of racial and linguistic identity? What can literary studies glean from this new mode of inquiry? Please submit 300-word abstracts to chouston@english.umass.edu by March 1 for consideration for a special sesssion at MLA 2018.

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This proposed MLA 2018 (January 4-7, NYC) session seeks papers that address the relationship between Catholicism and English Gothic literature in ways that move beyond simplistic observations of the genre’s use of anti-Catholic tropes. Especially welcome are papers that situate Gothic literature in the history of English Catholicism or which approach the religious content and contexts of Gothic literature from “post-secular” points of view. Papers might examine anything from 18th- and early 19th-century Catholicism’s influence on the rise of Gothic literature, to the lingering anti-Catholicism (or, conversely, Catholic nostalgia) in 21st-century Gothic literature and/or film, or anything in between.

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

One doesn't need to look hard to find someone declaring the "end of biography" generally, and in light of the various challenges posed by critical theory, perhaps literary biography is in an even more precarious position. Likewise, it seems clear that the academy generally devalues the efforts of life writers. This roundtable will consider the current state and future(s) of literary biography, in and out of the academy.  Send 250 word abstract by March 15th.

‘What is important now is to recover our senses. We must learn to see

more, to hear more, to feel more. […] The function of criticism should be to

show how it is what it is, even that it is what it is, rather than to show what it means.’
