This session seeks proposals which intend to explore Victorian translations of medieval texts as the transmission of cultural capital and as acts of transformation. More specifically, papers might address some of the following questions: how did Victorians adapt medieval texts to their own ideologies? How were medieval texts adapted into original compositions? How did Victorians approach translation and what does that reveal? How did Victorians think of faithfulness to the text? To the audience? What role did non-British scholars play in translating medieval texts into English (for example, Guðbrandur Vigfússon’s role in George Webbe Dasent’s translations, or Eiríkur Magnússon’s in William Morris’s output and thinking)?

Humanities in Transition : A Digital Journal

The humanities are in transition, whether you like it or not. We happen to like it. The aim of this journal is to create an online space for humanists to begin experimenting.  To that end, we seek authors with a broad vision, who write with clarity about the films, TV shows, Podcasts, music videos, etc. that they love. Our authors have a firm grounding in tradition, but with an eye to the future and to our students. We welcome your submissions.

Roots at 40: Reflections and Remembrances [Update]

In the final week of January, 1977, the ABC miniseries Roots became the most-watched television program of all time. To the surprise of the show’s producers, Roots became not only a ratings windfall, but a cultural phenomenon, articulating an African-American counter-narrative of American history, provoking a dialogue about the legacy of slavery, and presenting African-American characters with a dignity and integrity that differed sharply from the caricatured representations common to television up to that time. In many ways, the response to the show by the media and the general public constitutes the first of many “conversations about race” that have punctuated the Post-Civil Rights era.
