There’s Jove’s “mythy mind” in “Sunday Morning,” Penelope’s meditative compositions in “The World as Meditation,” “Aeneas” bearing his father “from / The ruins of the past” in the uncollected “Tradition,” and a call-out to “Classical mythology” in general as “The greatest piece of fiction” toward the end of Adagia. Stevens invokes “Plato’s ghost” and “Aristotle’s skeleton” in “Less and Less Human, O Savage Spirit”; he proposes and describes a “platonic person” in “The Pure Good of Theory”; he points to Plato and cites Socrates throughout his essays and letters. We find him freely, knowingly referring to Callimachus, Democritus, Parmenides, Sappho, Xenophon; to Catullus, Cicero, Horace, Lucretius, Ovid.

What scares us? Why do we sleep with the lights on? What creatures wait to grab a foot sticking out from under the covers? Why do we avoid the woods after dark?

This special issue of Humanities is themed on “Re-Imagining Classical Monsters.” Acrossall cultures, there have been monsters that have terrified, taught, othered, and much more. This issue will take a broad look at how modern authors and artists across genres conceptualize creatures—non-human as well as human—that haunt the imagination.

Stigmatised identities: Alternative Sexualities in/out of Normative Representations

 

The concept of ‘stigma’, including the many perspectives on stigmatised identities and processes of stigmatisation, is a crucial tool to focus on alternative sexualities and their representation. The issue has been addressed in numerous disciplinary fields, with studies attempting to understand stigma both generally in terms of social dynamics (Goffman 1963 and 1969; Becker 1963; Jones et al. 1984), and in its specific relation to sexuality (Herek 1998; Evans 2002).

Novels and literary works that adapt Classical figures and text continue to be very popular, such as Natalie Haynes’s A Thousand Ships, Pat Barker’s The Silence of the Girls and The Women of Troy, Madeline Miller’s Circe, Ali Smith’s Girl Meets Boy, and others demonstrate. Many of these retellings focus on Classical women, putting these characters at the center of the narratives. These relatively recent works show one way in which the Classical tradition can still be relevant, especially as it adapts to and includes new histories, viewpoints, and situations.

Modelling Change: ALCA 2023

American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

“Things change,” no doubt, and for many decades now changes in literature and the visual arts have often been conceptualized in two interconnected ways. First, artifactual change is taken as a sign of or proxy for deeper, systemic modifications (from old-fashioned “periods” to master changes like “rationalism,” “capitalism,” and “modernity”). To “historicize,” as Frederic Jameson enjoined us to do, means to imagine artifacts as registering the complex conditions that made them possible in the first place. Second, this brand of change is thought through the trope of rupture, since the various systems that relay one another — call them paradigms, epistemes, horizons or regimes — are held to be incommensurable, despite possible surface similarities.

Balkanising Classics: Theorising a New Perspective on Greco-Roman Antiquity

updated: 
Friday, August 4, 2023 - 2:15pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

Two conceptual territories bracket Europe’s imaginary geography: Greco-Roman Antiquity and the modern Balkans. According to Artemis Leontis, an “abstract principle of territorial identification” ties the political and cultural life of both modern Hellas and Western Europe to ancient Greek civilization. Rome has similarly been at the center of “a long and ongoing tradition of appropriating classical history and literature” to foster imperialist “narrative[s] of the exceptional progress” (Barnard). In comparison, the space of the Balkans seems peripheral to the project of European identity.
