Morality and Anglo-American Modernism

In the years leading up to the publication of The Waste Land, T. S. Eliot decried what he called the moral cowardice endemic to post-war London, and particularly to its literary circles.  D. H. Lawrence was similarly preoccupied with morality in his literary critical essays, writing, for example, that "Morality in the novel is the trembling instablity of the balance [between opposing forces].  When the novelist puts his thumb in the scale, to pull down the balance to his own predilection, that is immorality."  And, finally, Hemingway once suggested to a group of professors that of all his novels, the best to teach is The Sun Also Rises because, he said, it is a "very moral novel."

The global pandemic and long periods of self-quarantine shifted everything from work habits, to school, to media consumption, and more.

 

For example, the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons brought families together and even provided a supportive space for on-line memorial services.

 

Zoom parties became a new way of coming together, as did streaming watch parties.

Since launching its hugely popular “Countdown to Christmas” made-for-TV movie series in 2009, Hallmark has expanded its offerings of American small-town romances to include Valentine’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, New Year’s, and Hanukkah, as well as winter, spring, summer, fall, and “Christmas in July.” Dozens of original films are planned and shot each year, often in Canadian locations such as Vancouver and Ottawa. These now-year-round productions are formulaic, heteronormative, Christian, and overwhelmingly white—and they have been undeniably commercially successful, rocketing Hallmark to cable success and spawning imitations across multiple platforms.

Memory: Staging, Praxis & Practice

In considering the Ars Memoriae, Giordano Bruno (1548-1600) envisioned a universe of many worlds, many dimensions. The  practice of remembering and forgetting had profound political, intellectual, social, religious and cultural consequences in the medieval and early modern world. Frequently, the past served as a legitimising force, helping to justify the actions of the present or to graph future perspectives. It was therefore vehemently contested, habitually revised and amended, or even exploited.  This two-day conference provides an opportunity for scholars to discuss the numerous ways in which memory practices influenced the pre-modern world.

The last few decades have been characterised by a growing interest in literary multilingualism. Multiple studies have examined the way linguistic diversity manifests itself in literary works, for instance focusing on multilingual practices such as code-switching. However, fewer and often isolated studies (Jacquet 1972, Gauvin 2004, Montermini 2006, Bürger-Koftis, Schweiger and Vlasta 2010, Loison-Charles 2016, etc.) have focused on linguistic hybridization in literature, a process “whereby separate and disparate entities or processes generate another entity or process (the hybrid), which shares certain features with each of its sources” (Sanchez Stockhammer 2012).

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

Description:

In 2015, the case of Rachel Doležal sparked a heated debate about transraciality and helped to establish an academic examination of the subject.  The scholarly consideration of transraciality is in its formative stages and this edited collection is an effort to expand and develop the existing discussion.  The first of its kind, this volume will include interdisciplinary contributions from scholars who bring a wide range of perspectives and approaches to the subject.  We are interested in chapters that help us, as an academic community, better understand transraciality as a concept or practice. 

RSA 2023 (San Juan, March 9–11): New Approaches to Early Modern Metaphor

Hayley Cotter, University of Massachusetts Amherst
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 15, 2022

“A metaphor,” wrote philosopher Monroe Beardsley in his Aesthetics (1958), “is a miniature poem, and the explication of a metaphor is a model for all explication.” Beardsley recognized the interpretive value of the trope, and metaphor offers a rich site to deepen cultural, artistic, and literary understanding of the early modern period. This panel seeks papers across disciplines that offer new theoretical frameworks for engaging with early modern metaphor. It also aims to foster transdisciplinary dialogue among panelists. Possible topics include visual metaphor, scientific and mathematical metaphor, metaphor in translation, poetic and literary metaphor, legal metaphor, Renaissance theories of metaphor, and problems of interpretation.

Fantasy, Prophecy, and Prediction as Causality Panel

updated: 
Thursday, April 7, 2022 - 3:46pm
Pacific Ancient Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 15, 2022

Panel Description:

Innovations in tech and science often begin with fantasies that embody a possibility (e.g. Jules Verne's From the Earth to the Moon, Dick Tracy's TV watch, flip phone communicators in Star Trek, and Neuromancer’s cyberspace as VR). Theory is followed by experimentation and prototyping, and ultimately a convergence with reality (although not without tragic casualties along the way, as in the history of flight and space exploration). In this sense, fantasy can be understood as both precursor and prophet of things-to-come.
