Biblical Women: Reading and Writing Women in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries. 10th-11th September 2010.

updated: 
Saturday, May 1, 2010 - 4:34am
Queen's University, Belfast

This conference considers 'biblical women' in a dual sense: the appropriation and use of women from Scripture in a variety of canonical and non-canonical texts, by both male and female writers, as well as the ways in which Scripture is deployed, more generally, in the period's female writings. We welcome papers that include, but are not limited to, the following themes:

Terror and the Cinematic Sublime (6/01/10; MMLA 11/4-7, 2010)

updated: 
Friday, April 30, 2010 - 7:43pm
Todd Comer

Jean-Francois Lyotard writes, "We have paid a high enough price for the nostalgia of the whole [...] let us be witnesses to the unpresentable; let us activate the differences and save the honor of the name." How are "nostalgia" and the "whole" linked to terror and to the cinematic form? And how does film--if at all--confront the "unpresentable?" What is the "ethical" nature of this confrontation? Do death, birth, and God remain unpresentable today or have they also fallen prey to a nostalgic closure? Papers on the Coens, Christopher Nolan, Tarantino, Peter Weir, and less mainstream directors are of particular interest.

This collection analyzes television programs of the 21st century that contain experiments with narrative time. Although the television shows of the past decade are as diverse and plentiful as that of any previous time period, there seem to be some commonalities between the programs currently creating the most engaged fan communities – the ones that have become quick cult draws or instant hits.

MMLA 2010 (11/04-07, Chicago) - The Philosophical-Literary Hybrid Text

updated: 
Thursday, April 29, 2010 - 11:01pm
Agnes Malinowska, University of Chicago

The mixed formal properties of certain texts across the history of philosophy and literature resist any attempt at their easy classification within either of these traditional generic categories. Such philosophical-literary hybrid texts seem to deny the adequacy of either strictly philosophical or literary form for expressing a particular content or inducing some affective or intellectual experience. This panel seeks to explore questions raised by the philosophical-literary hybrid text, in all its historical and geographical variation. What is the relationship between the hybrid form of some philosophical-literary text and its content? What are the stakes of philosophical-literary hybridity for some author?
