’Cause in London Town

There’s just no place for a street fighting man

—The Rolling Stones, 1968 

Mick Jagger’s words above can sometimes feel axiomatic.  London has an outwardly less impressive revolutionary tradition to call upon than many of its closest neighbours, most obviously Paris.  This is to say, of course, that history is political: if the past seems quiet, what hope for remaking the future?

Ghosts and Memory

updated: 
Tuesday, November 5, 2019 - 5:01pm
Far West Popular Culture Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 12, 2019

I am seeking 20 minute paper proposals for a panel that considers the various literary uses and conceptions of ghosts as a mode of memory, projection, history, trauma, and reconciliation/redemption. Part of the foundational premise of the ghost story is a disturbance in the present that comes from the past; an unsettling interaction between mind and matter, memory and perception, the living and the dead. All paper proposals that consider these aspects of ghost stories (as literature/writing) are welcome.

The Far West Popular Culture Association will be held on February 22-24, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Palace Station Hotel/Casino.

Please send a 250 word abstract and a brief bio to:

Natural Philosophy, Literature, and the Embodied Imagination

updated: 
Sunday, November 3, 2019 - 6:35am
SCSECS (St. Augustine, Florida - February 7-8, 2020)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, December 9, 2019

From Tita Chico’s The Experimental Imagination (2019), Karen Bloom Gevirtz’s Women, the Novel, and Natural Philosophy (2014), and Dana Jalobeanu’s “Disciplining Experience” (2014), recent criticism has disrupted the notion of objectivity and detached or modest witnessing that is typically associated with the scientific method and that was put forth by seventeenth- and eighteenth-century natural philosophers, themselves. This panel seeks to explore the connections between seventeenth- and eighteenth-century science and literature by paying particular attention to the role embodiment—broadly construed as corporeality, experientiality, materiality, and/or subject-position—played in both.

Eighteenth-Century Environmental Humanities: Edited Collection CFP

updated: 
Wednesday, October 23, 2019 - 3:27pm
Jeremy Chow/ Bucknell University
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 1, 2020

We invite abstracts for an interdisciplinary collection of essays that is oriented around the sheer diversity of Environmental Humanities (EH) work in the long eighteenth century. Our interdisciplinary focus seeks to honor connections and conversations within, around, and between disciplines. This collection evaluates how the emergence and necessity of EH scholarship is germane to conversations in the eighteenth century, and endeavors to weigh how EH might function as a discipline, theoretic, methodology, and/or pedagogical tool--as well as how the eighteenth century might legitimate, make blurry, or problematize these functions.
