ACLA 2022: The Novel from Land to Sea [deadline extended!]

Tuesday, November 30, 2021

In this seminar, we hope to rethink long-held associations between novel and nation-state in light of recent insights from oceanic studies, archipelagic studies, as well as transatlantic, transpacific, and Indian Ocean contexts. What kinds of genres and narrative frameworks unfold from a maritime, as opposed to land-based, perspective? How do novelists negotiate these commitments across multiple scales—and what ways of reading emerge by centering islands, coasts, ports, and other liminal spaces?

When, in his Preface to Lyrical Ballads (1802), William Wordsworth insisted that an “overbalance of pleasure” entails the “circumstance of meter,” he confirmed a philosophical assumption far older than Kant’s theory of the sublime. The pervasive assumption—which, today, can be tracked in an on-going “affective turn” (necessarily entangled in matters of form and style)—is that the artificial makes possible an understanding of the natural.
