Reform—a term, activity, or idea dedicated to dissent from existing conditions—is also, history demonstrates, slippery in its ambivalence. As the setting for both Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle and Hull House’s historical founding, Chicago has long been associated with activism and reform in the Progressive Era. Yet violent conflicts like the Haymarket Affair and Chicago Race Riots of 1919 made manifest continuing racial and class-based divisions and attested to the limits of so-called progressive social reform in this time/place.

We’re excited to announce that the CfP is now open for the Queer Modernism(s) conference. The conference will be held at Nottingham Trent University on Monday April 03rd, 2017.

About the conference

‘Somewhat like Ariel / Somewhat like Puck / Somewhat like a gutter boy / Who loves to play in muck’ – Richard Bruce Nugent

Queer Modernism(s) is an interdisciplinary conference that aims to explore the place of queer identity in modernist art, literature and culture. How do modernist artists frame queerness within their work? How did writers reveal and conceal their sexuality? And, in ‘making it new’, how did modernism develop new modes of exploring gender and sexuality?

Shakespeare and Narrative Theory 

Deadline Feb. 10th

Call for papers exploring the connection between Shakespeare and narrative theory for a volume of essays entitled Shakespeare, Storytelling and Narrative Theory.

Abstracts (250 words) should outline the interpretative problems, the narrative theoretical contributions that the papers seek to make (revising or extending and established theory, developing a new concept, etc) and the connections to Shakespesare's oeuvre.

Call for abstracts on literary/dramatic widowhood

“[O]ld Maid and musty Widows are like the plague shun’d of by all men…” So says Doll Pacify from Margaret Cavendish’s Bell in campo (1660). Her fellow servant, Nell Careless, replies: “a man cannot intimately love a Widow, because he will be a Cuckold, as being made one by her dead Husband, and so live in Adultry…” (Bell, V.25).
