In 2018, Laurence Sterne’s _A Sentimental Journey through France and

Italy_, the author’s ‘work of redemption,’ will have been

entertaining, touching and outraging readers for 250 years. To mark

the sestercentennial anniversary of its publication and Laurence

Sterne’s death, we are pleased to issue a call for proposals for

contributions to an essay collection, _‘A Legacy to the World’:

New Approaches to Laurence Sterne’s ‘A Sentimental Journey’ and

other Works_. We are particularly interested in new explorations of

affect, culture, gender, class, religion and nation, and in studies of

connections between _A Sentimental Journey_ and other works by Sterne

Friday, September 15, 2017

This panel continues the work started by the "Ecology of Ageism in the Long Eighteenth Century," a panel at ASECS in 2016 that focused on the constructions of age in the eighteenth century. Not only a reflection of genes or time, aging is a cultural discourse that affects the interpolation of identity and the power dynamics of privilege. "The Body Aged: Performance, Disability, and Queer Aging in the Long Eighteenth Century" seeks to expand the discussion of aging by connecting age studies to work in performance theory, disability studies, and queer studies.

Paving the road for men of brighter talents: celebrating the tercentenary of Horace Walpole

Aeternum: Journal of Contemporary Gothic Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, August 18, 2017

Author of nominally the first gothic novel, The Castle of Otranto, the collection of gothic short stories, The Hieroglyphic Tales, and the gothic play The Mysterious Mother, Walpole developed a style with hyperbolic tendencies, odd and wild ornamentation, rude irregularity and deliberate disharmony in an effort to free the authorial imagination from the ennui and malaise engendered by neoclassical order and form. The prefaces to his fictional works often featured commentary on the current state of literature, art and culture, and his self-published letters, are themselves of significant social and political interest.

Since the 1939 publication of Perry Miller’s classic The New England Mind early Americanists have acknowledged the fundamental role New English Puritanism played in the subsequent development of American culture. Scholars like Edmund Morgan, Sacvan Bercovitch, Andrew Delbanco and many others have placed New England at the center of the development of American identity. Yet in the past generation, other scholars have broadened an understanding of regionalism in the construction of American nationhood, with many focusing on the polyglot, multiethnic and religiously non-conformist colonies of New York, New Jersey, and especially Pennsylvania.

Swift also travelled through genres and voices, among men and women, and between politics and religion. His works have travelled as well, through space and time, in numerous editions, along with translations, responses, adaptations, abridgements, continuations, and illustrated versions.

This proposed MLA 2018 (January 4-7, NYC) session seeks papers that address the relationship between Catholicism and English Gothic literature in ways that move beyond simplistic observations of the genre’s use of anti-Catholic tropes. Especially welcome are papers that situate Gothic literature in the history of English Catholicism or which approach the religious content and contexts of Gothic literature from “post-secular” points of view. Papers might examine anything from 18th- and early 19th-century Catholicism’s influence on the rise of Gothic literature, to the lingering anti-Catholicism (or, conversely, Catholic nostalgia) in 21st-century Gothic literature and/or film, or anything in between.
