“Early Modern English Literature”

Early modern English authors (c. 1453-1789) wrote in a period of unprecedented national and international political, cultural, social, religious, and scientific changes. Literature in English across a range of traditional and alternative genres reflected, resisted, and redefined these developments. We invite papers that identify and analyse the many forms of evidence of the literary engagement with transformative issues, events, and axes within and outside of the British Isles.

Editors of the number: Elizabeth Sauer (Brock University, Canadá) eand Luiz Fernando Ferreira Sá (UFMG)

CFP: Gothic Animals: Uncanny Otherness and the Animal With-Out

The boundary between the animal and the human has long been unstable, especially since the Victorian period. Where the boundary is drawn between human and animal is itself an expression of political power and dominance, and the ‘animal’ can at once express the deepest fears and greatest aspirations of a society (Victorian Animal Dreams, 4).

The animal, like the ghost or good or evil spirit with which it is often associated, has been a manifestation of the uncanny (Timothy Clark, 185).

The twenty-sixth annual BWWC invites papers and panel proposals interpreting the theme of “New Directions.” Since the landmark “Generations” conference of 2017 invites a retrospective look back, “New Directions” will encourage turning to the future to ask crucial methodological, theoretical, and content-based questions about our fields’ key concepts and literatures.
