E21: Presentivism in the Eighteenth-Century Studies Classroom

In its manifesto, the V21 Collective asserts that “Victorian Studies has fallen prey to positivist historicism: a mode of inquiry that aims to do little more than exhaustively describe, preserve, and display the past” and advocates for “a new openness to presentism: an awareness that our interest in the period is motivated by certain features of our own moment.” At the 2018 ASECS, the same question was asked of eighteenth-century studies: as a discipline, have we “fallen prey to positivist historicism,” and would it benefit us to be open to presentism? Do we need our own V21, or E21?

In the preface to Louis Lémery’s translation of his 1702 Traité des aliments, he argues that “the Ground-work of our Preservation, consists chiefly in a Knowledge of suiting Foods to every Constitution, as it best agrees with; and so the Knowledge we ought to be most desirous of, should be that of Foods” (ix-x). Diet and survival were salient concerns throughout the eighteenth century, and, in turn, literature is bursting with references to the production and consumption of food. However, foodstuffs in relation to health is still a relatively overlooked topic in long eighteenth-century scholarship (approximately 1660-1832).

This panel welcomes papers that explore, but are by no means limited to:

Hogarth in the 21st Century: Panel at NEMLA

Monday, July 2, 2018 - 9:53am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

William Hogarth’s engravings invite us to view the streets, parlors, insane asylums, prisons and gambling houses of 18th-century London. Through his “modern moral subjects,” his satirical eye exposed hypocrisy, aristocratic excess and overwrought devotion to foreign artists. His influence can be seen in political cartoons, graphic novels and even cinema. This panel will discuss Hogarth’s place in 21st century culture. During this time that seems desperately to need keen, perspicacious satire, can we turn to Hogarth as a paragon? What can an artist so inextricably linked to 18th-century life teach us about ourselves?

The Haitian Revolution in the Transatlantic Literary Imagination, NeMLA

Sunday, September 30, 2018

A growing body of recent scholarship argues that the Haitian Revolution is one of the defining events of modernity. But from 1791 until 1804, the fog of war distorted and obscured Western perceptions of Haiti. From independence until official recognition by France in 1825, isolation did likewise. Fear, mythmaking, and bigotry filled the void. In Tropics of Haiti, Marlene Daut states that “[a] great portion of the texts within the transatlantic print culture of the Haitian Revolution reveal themselves, upon closer examination, to be unsure about what they ‘think’ they are: novels or memoirs, histories or dramatizations… [they] blur the lines between history and fiction, biography and memoir, philosophy and science”.

In her groundbreaking book titled Women in the Nineteenth Century, Margaret Fuller suggests a remedy for the degradation of work for women stating, “Women are the best helpers of one another” (117). Fuller’s statement has reflections in many works written at the end of the nineteenth century such as Elizabeth Stuart Phelps, The Silent Partner (1871),  Alcott’s Work (18739, and Blake’s Fettered for Life (1874) all of which focus on sisterhood, solidarity, and feminine bond among women across class, race, and nationality as a survival mechanism within capitalist economy.

Call for paper: Aletria v. 28, n.3 (2018) – 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, Canada) and Luiz Fernando Ferreira Sá (UFMG)
