Creating and Un-creating the World in the Romantic Imagination

updated: 
Friday, April 8, 2016 - 3:02pm
SAMLA

The Romantics era was rife with social and economic shifts and imbalances as the Industrial Revolution brought destruction to the natural world and further stratification of the classes. In this increasingly dystopian climate, Romantic authors often sought an idyllic nature in which to imbue their utopian views; as such, the Romantic imagination became a mechanism through which authors essentially deconstructed the dystopian world and created the utopian imagination. Conversely, the Romantics sometimes deconstructed the utopian environment as a means to express the dystopian imagination.

Busting Boundaries: Unexpected Interdisciplinarity

updated: 
Friday, April 8, 2016 - 2:50pm
MMLA--special sessions

To those whose imaginative or scholarly inclinations chafe at fixed boundaries, the limitations they imply can inspire rebellion—that is an attempt to breach the boundaries and explore what lies beyond them. This session solicits papers that address literary topics using tools or approaches from disciplines that rarely meet in the same paper. For example, in what ways can mathematics provide a new or different interpretive lens for a literary text? Or what can poetry tell us about biology?

Submit a proposal of no more than 500 words by April 20.

Children's Literature and Adaptation (Proposed Panel at IRSCL Congress 2017)

updated: 
Friday, April 8, 2016 - 2:43pm
IRSCL (International Research Society for Children’s Literature) Congress 2017

In her second edition of Theory of Adaptation (2013), critic Linda Hutcheon presents a refreshingly new approach to adaptation, one that examines adaptive versions "laterally, not vertically" (xv), rather than one that privileges the source text. For Hutcheon, adaptation is both "process" and "product" of creation and reception, and the potential for change is endless, the life-giving possibilities of the adaptation infinite.

Our school valorises the unavoidable pursuit of ontology, foregrounding the debate on this classical philosophical question.

Which factors, such as racism, discrimination, financial advantage or hardship, propel or hinder an athlete's achievements?

CFP: thresholds no. 1, Extraneous

updated: 
Thursday, April 7, 2016 - 5:31am
Fran McDonald, Whitney Trettien

thresholds is a new digital journal co-edited by Whitney Trettien (UNC) and Fran McDonald (U. Louisville). The journal's platform bears witness to the dynamic processes that constitute reading and writing by way of a split-screen architecture. On the left side of the screen, we publish short essays (essayer – trial, attempt, test). The right side of the screen is populated by the various text fragments, images, audio, and video clips that inspired the author and propelled the corresponding work. Unlike a footnote or endnote, these fragments are not explicitly harnessed to the essay's main body; they do not rustle the reader toward a specific interpretative conclusion.
