Liberating Herself: Emancipationist Writing at the Fin de Siècle (Cambridge Scholars Publishing)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, August 20, 2016

The second half of the nineteenth century was marked by the emergence of the global women’s movement. Feminist writer Sarah Grand (1854-1943) is considered to be the first to have coined the term “New Woman” in 1894 in England. New Woman writers (in Victorian literature the New Woman novel forms a separate genre) participated in the feminist debate. Feminism altered the course of literature by challenging those literary conventions that governed the portrayal of women and women's experience at the fin de siècle. Feminist texts explicitly advocated social change and discussed new women’s roles in society.

Erich Auerbach's "Mimesis": The View from the 21st Century

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

Erich Auerbach’s "Mimesis"—The Representation of Reality in Western Literature—was published in 1945 and had a tremendous influence in the middle part of the 20th century. Using a method of textual analysis to establish continuities from Homer to Virginia Woolf, Auerbach has been read by virtually every serious student of literature for seventy years now. Because of the scope and density of the book it is somewhat difficult to ready examine and evaluate Mimesis. This panel will examine Mimesis from two angles. First, we will study and reflect the overarching themes of this magisterial book. Second, we will look at his individual textual analyses to probe their validity and relevance in 2016.

Overlooked, Forgotten, or Maligned: Bringing Minor Characters Into Focus

updated: 
Tuesday, July 19, 2016 - 6:04am
NeMLA 2017 - Baltimore, MD
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2015

This panel seeks to investigate how we can (re)read classic American novels when analyzing them via secondary/minor characters. For example, how does the town of Maycomb change when read through Jack Finch? Does Jordan Baker give us insight into The Great Gatsby that no other character provides? Secondary characters are often overlooked when teaching and/or researching classic American novels, and this panel seeks to remedy that problem. By exhuming the often maligned supporting cast, we can see classic novels with fresh eyes, deepening our understanding of canonical stories while illuminating new ways of teaching these novels to our students.
