*Extended Deadline* Shakespeare's Odysseys

Monday, January 17, 2022 - 2:33am
Shakespeare-Seminar 2022
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 28, 2022

In Episode 9 of James Joyce's Ulysses, “Scylla and Charybdis,” Stephen Dedalus develops a theory about the origins of Shakespeare’s works that is both original and controversial. It is in the National Library of Ireland that Dedalus, in a wild and winding conversation, develops his ‘Hamlet theory’. The episode stages the strong and sometimes comic appeal of a biographical approach to Shakespeare’s works and, at the same time, casts Dedalus – Joyce’s alter ego – variously as Hamlet, Hamlet’s father, Shakespeare, and as a modern-day Ulysses.

Documenting the Author: Examining the Role of and Impact of Author-Based Documentaries

This past April, the highly anticipated documentary, Hemingway (2021), premiered on PBS, coupled with watch parties and much discussion of reactions to the film.  The reception of the documentary spurred debate, provided new perspectives of Hemingway through visual footage and images, and perhaps most importantly, presented the author’s life and work to a public audience, inviting both casual and dedicated readers to watch and learn.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 7, 2022

The theme of Critical Orwell: an online conference (12-14 April 2022) is how Orwell is critical and in crisis: how Orwell’s views and work matter; how Orwell operated as a judge and fault-finder, and occasionally as a pessimist; and how Orwell is a figure whose prejudices raise important questions about his canonical status in Anglo-American culture and beyond. How and why is Orwell critical now?

Call for papers

Critical Orwell invites proposals for 15-minute scholarly presentations that consider any aspect of Orwell’s life and work in relation to the conference theme: crisis; criticism; criticality.

The heterogenous character of protean form of travel writing—letters, journals, logbooks, diaries, memoir, journalistic pieces, guidebooks, confessional narratives, accounts of seafaring voyages, literary picaresque narratives, scientific explorations, artists’ escapades, ventures of urban flâneurs, self-exiled wanderers, and fiction—resists easy demarcation. Its heterogeneity lies in the revisionary stance brought about in each narrative through the distinguishing figure of the traveller, mode of narration, means of mapping, or redefining of the landscape.

The Willa Cather Foundation will sponsor two separate panels at the American Literature Association’s 33rd Annual Conference, to be held in Chicago, IL May 26-29, 2022.

Cather and Her Contemporaries: As the publication of her letters has demonstrated, Willa Cather had personal, aesthetic, philosophical, and social ties with a wide range of writers, artists, musicians, and public figures. What’s more, her fiction, nonfiction, and poetry were sites of engagement where many of these connections were both widened and deepened.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 15, 2022

 

This special issue of The Hemingway Review aims to deepen the conversation about Hemingway, Blackness, and Whiteness. Recognizing Hemingway was taught and expected to perform White Supremacy and Privilege, we call on scholars to demonstrate ways to identify and make meaning of racism and anti-racism in Hemingway’s work. What can we learn from Hemingway about the performance of Whiteness and what use is that knowledge? How have Black writers engaged Hemingway, both in his lifetime and later? What questions about Blackness and Whiteness in the United States should we be asking of Hemingway’s public persona, Hemingway’s writing, and our teaching of both?

Panel 1: Cummings and Transcendence

In 1960, Norman Friedman declared that Cummings’ “philosophy of life” was “transcendental, romantic, prelapsarian, organicist, and individualistic. The same is publicly available in the writings of many others, such as Emerson, Whitman, Thoreau, and Emily Dickinson” (Art 66). We seek papers examining, critiquing, clarifying, or complicating these assertions through a close reading of any Cummings work(s).
