Almost all branches of modern science and scholarship, including humanities, can trace their existence back to at least early modern times when Latin was a common medium of European erudition. Yet, present-day researchers in individual disciplines are largely unaware of the existence of early modern Latin scholarship related to their respective fields of study.

NeMLA 2018 Going Places from Pastoral to Polis: Setting and Fiction in Antiquity and Beyond

updated: 
Tuesday, September 12, 2017 - 2:27pm
Claire Sommers/The Graduate Center, CUNY
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

The ancient Greek word topos is commonly translated as “place” and referred to a region, site, or geographical position. While the ancient Greek language is long gone, the term topos has survived and passed into the modern vernacular. Today, the word topos is used in literary theory and refers to any common literary theme or motif. This passage of the term for “place” into literary analysis is the natural extension of how the Classics viewed space, as they defined their world through fictions and mythology. The flora and fauna found in the pastoral realm had their origins in various myths, while the city gave the temple a central location and tie its central civic and religious festival to theatre.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 1, 2017

This year's theme is "kindness."

Specific to Goddess Studies, what are some of the ways women have been portrayed as kind in religious and mythic narrative or iconography? In which ways has the personification of kindness-as-feminine been damaging to women's roles in the larger socio-political context? Does this have specific implications for narratives including LGBTQ and people of color? Are there any narratives of figures which the mainstream has adopted as malevolent, but actually have much more nuanced and complicated histories?

Playing With Source Materials: Alterations and Shakespeare's Creative Fabric -- NeMLA 2018

Friday, June 16, 2017 - 12:25pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Shakespeare is preeminent among English authors, but, by today's standards, for all of his fame, little is known about Shakespeare the man. This has lead some to create an authorship controversy, though among scholars this is a non-issue as there is ample evidence linking "the man from Stratford" to the London playwright. Stylometry studies have found that Shakespeare and his fellow playwrights collaborated much more than had ever been guessed at, but such findings shed little light on his creative processes. Perhaps the best currently available avenue to gain insight into his creative strategies is by examining what at first glance appears to indicate lack of creativity—his inveterate unabashed "borrowing" of plots, characters, phrases, and more.

Construction and Reconstruction of the Middle Ages: Memory of Delights

Taiwan Association of Classical Medieval and Renaissance Studies

Friday, July 14, 2017

One significant feature of Medieval culture is quest for salvation and justice. For example, Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights incorporates complex human emotions into its pastoral horizon, where God and Satan, good and evil compete to deny Eden as paradise. Many writers offer texts in which social and material desires decline the land of milk and honey, and memory of human goodness turns reality into ironic space in which social unrest and private disquiet challenge existence. In a way, split memory of edenic delights produces rich legacy. We invite papers to address theme of memory of delights in history, literature, religion, philosophy, and other fields, both in Medieval period and across ages.
