Beyond Rubashov: Arthur Koestler’s Lesser-known Fiction and the Genre of the Novel

Sunday, December 23, 2018

Arthur Koestler, the man, has been in the forefront of academic interest in the past twenty years. In this period, three critical biographies have been published in English alone, another three in Hungarian, two in German, one in Spanish, and another one in French, in other words, on average, one volume every second year. While this is a luxurious situation few other authors can claim, the fact remains that although Koestler was a writer who wrote seven novels and a play, six volumes of autobiography, and more than twenty book-length works of non-fiction, the last book in English devoted to his oeuvre was published in 1984. In terms of academic articles and book chapters, the situation is hardly any better.

This panel seeks to continue the fruitful dialogue about the intertwining of epic, romance and novel in Italian culture we started at the AAIS-CSIS 2017 Conference in Columbus, Ohio. In order to further the scholarship of Bakhtin, Jameson, Doody, and Fusillo among others, we welcome investigations of the widespread presence and reciprocal influence of these three literary forms in the Italian linguistic and cultural space from the Middle Ages to the present day. What motivates their contaminations? What emerges from the collisions of these different styles and worldviews within the Italian context?

In celebration of the life and works of the eminent scholar Pierre Coustillas (1930-2018), we invite contributions for proposed panel(s) on Coustillas, George Gissing, and their writing to the Annual Literary London Society Conference. This meeting will be held on 11-12 July 2019 at the Institute of English Studies in the University of London. Coustillas has had a profound influence on Gissing and nineteenth-century studies. From 1969 to April 2013, he edited The Gissing Newsletter and subsequently The Gissing Journal, the organ for Gissing studies. In 1997, Paul F. Mattheisen, Arthur C. Young, and Coustillas completed their landmark project: The Collected Letters of George Gissing.

World religions have long held pilgrimage as an important journey of the faithful. Today, however, there is an increasing number of non-religious, secular or spiritual pilgrims undertaking these journeys. The nearly 800 km-long Camino de Santiago is a popular destination for secular pilgrims travelling through France and across Northern Spain. Established as one of three principal Christian pilgrimage routes over 1,200 years ago, the Camino is experiencing increasing visitor numbers with over 300,000 undertaking the journey each year.
