L'analisi Linguistica e Letteraria - Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 15, 2017

We propose to devote a thematic section of Issue 2/2018 of the Journal "L'Analisi linguistica e letteraria" (www.analisilinguisticaeletteraria.eu) to expressions of creative writing inspired by monuments. Our aim is to understand how and why diverse re/constructions of their specific genesis, descriptions of architectural features, explanations of symbolism, histories of mentors, sponsors and artists generate over/interpretations in the form of essays, short stories, historical novels and poems. Each article will investigate the ways in which writers, while speculating on and verbally reconstructing a monument, can instil aesthetic and ideological appreciations.

In Katherine Mansfield’s 1912 short story ‘How Pearl Button Was Kidnapped’, a young girl sees the ocean for the first time. Terrified by the sight of this ‘big piece of blue water […] creeping over the land’ she asks: ‘Will it hurt us – is it coming?’ The response she is given is that ‘no, it doesn’t come to us. It stays in its place’.

We are excited to announce the Call for Papers for Transitions: Bridging the Victorian-Modernist Divide. The conference is set to be held on 9th and 10th of April 2018 at the University of Birmingham. Transitions is an international, interdisciplinary conference seeking to open a dialogue between Victorianist and Modernist scholars. The conference will interrogate the historical, theoretical and thematic divides that have evolved from the artificial critical boundary set at the turn of the century. Panelists are invited to reconsider and discuss the aesthetic, social, political, technological, artistic, scientific, cultural and textual relationship between the Victorian and Modernist periods, in a global context.

Genealogies of Latinx Eco-Media

This panel explores the genealogies of Latinx eco-media, defined broadly to include literature, visual art, film, music, and everything in between. As Euro-American fantasies like the pristine wilderness and the balanced ecosystem become increasingly untenable, it looks to Latinx eco-media for aesthetic, conceptual, and political alternatives. And as the effects of climate change become increasingly pervasive, it recovers Latinx strategies for reimagining—and ultimately, transforming—human communities and nonhuman environments.

OK Computer, twenty years on: Radiohead’s musical, cultural, and political legacies

 

OK Computer, Radiohead’s third album, has captivated many rock music fans worldwide and continues to this day to feature in the music press’s lists of the best rock albums of all times. A complex, at times experimental, album, OK Computer stood at odds with the dominating trends in mid-to-late 1990s British music and culture, especially Britpop, and the album’s bleak, subversive lyrics provided a sharp contrast with the features of the Cool Britannia phenomenon.

Special Issue (2018) of The Journal of Wyndham Lewis Studies (Tarr: 100 years on)

 

Wyndham Lewis’s quintessentially modernist novel Tarr was published in 1918 (Knopf, USA; Egoist Press, UK). To commemorate the centenary of the novel’s publication, the 2018 volume of JWLS seeks 7- to 10,000-word essays reconsidering Tarr’ssignificance, legacy, and meaning. We are particularly interested in essays approaching Tarr from innovative angles and standpoints. All submissions should try to engage with the most relevant scholarship. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

 

  • the legacy of Tarr and its achievements;
