Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This proposed session for MLA 2018 (NYC, 4-7 January) seeks to explore the relationship between race and beauty in the 19th century. How were Victorian concepts of beauty tied to theories of race? Papers that define beauty in terms of Victorian aesthetic theories are especially welcome, as are papers that deal not only with physical beauty but with beauty in the arts. How did Victorian theories about music and art, for example, participate in imperlalism, colonialism, and / or race theory? This session seeks to deepen scholarly understanding of the ways that Victorians theorized beauty, broadly defined, in relation to racialized evolutionary concepts.

MLA Special Session
deadline for submissions:

Literary Texts as Raciolinguistic Projects?

The emerging field of "raciolinguistics" brings together linguistics, education, sociology, critical race theory, anthropology, and other fields, in an effort to jointly theorize race and language, "paying particular attention to how both social processes mediate and mutually constitue each other" (3). In what ways do literary texts facilitate, complicate, and negotiate the joint formation of racial and linguistic identity? What can literary studies glean from this new mode of inquiry? Please submit 300-word abstracts to chouston@english.umass.edu by March 1 for consideration for a special sesssion at MLA 2018.
