Spectatorship and Observation in the Medieval Arts (Kalamazoo 2017)

Friday, September 9, 2016

In contemporary studies of the Middle Ages, questions of visuality have increasingly dominated analyses of artistic production, in part because of the central role of vision in medieval theological and scientific discourse. This session seeks to broaden the conversation around medieval visuality by asking not only what it meant to see in the Middle Ages, but also what it meant to be seen, and how these networks of viewership could be depicted in the pictorial arts, literature, architecture, music, and drama.

Premodern Futurities: Speculative Objects and Prognostication in the Medieval World (Kalamazoo 2017)

Interpreting the medieval arts entails setting in motion forms of anachronism; within the arts we see complex negotiations of temporality, which themselves pose significant challenges to our understanding of historical objects. Scholars have been both resistant to and complicit in these forms, a challenge of historicism having been, to a greater or lesser extent, to unlearn certain histories in order to “restore” the contingency of a specific historical moment. For, indeed, medieval people theorized futures of their own. They refined procedures of prognostication and speculation, and, significantly, crafted aesthetic objects that imagined divergent futurities.

“Ungelic is us”: Queer Old English Elegies

updated: 
Monday, June 27, 2016 - 12:01pm
Elan Justice Pavlinich, University of South Florida
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

This panel focuses on the instability of meaning in Old English elegies. Because queerness bears nuanced connotations that require individual definition, this session is open to a broad understanding of the term “queer” and how queer theory enhances our understanding of the elegies in Anglo-Saxon culture. Approaches may include, but are not limited to, manuscript history and paleography, generic conventions and their reception, as well as literary innovations within specific texts.

Rethinking Early Modern Subjectivity (NeMLA 2017)

updated: 
Monday, June 27, 2016 - 11:31am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Modernity is often defined as a series of political, social, and economic shifts related to the emergence of an autonomous subject. Nevertheless, there is a lack of consensus of how to measure the underlying forces driving this supposed change of paradigm. In light of recent approaches to subjectivity, we invite participants to circulate 5-8 pages papers (with theoretical or empirical foci on the topic) and discuss them after a brief presentation. The goal of the seminar is therefore to interrogate the condition of the “early modern subject” through the analysis of established binaries such as (but not limited to) unity/plurality, transcendence/immanence, individual/communal, East/West, local/global, medieval/modern, etc.
