Memory and Lineage in Medieval Romance

The 25th Leeds International Medieval Congress has a special thematic strand of ‘memory’. Medieval romance lends itself to thinking about memory, in many ways, and not least because of its preoccupation with lineage. We invite proposals for 20-minute papers on any aspect of memory and/or lineage in medieval romance. 

 

The brief is deliberately broad, so please feel free to interpret according to your interest. Some thematic and theoretical approaches to consider may be: 

•inheritance / heritage / legacy

•remembering and recognition

•family histories and family politics

•textual lineage.

New criteria of selection for the proposals – sections Essays and Theory and practice of Translation

Gower and Temporalities

Wednesday, July 19, 2017

When Gower says in the Vox Clamantis that the writings of the past provide examples for the future ("Scripture veteris capiunt exempla futuri") or when he envisions a statue of time made of the clay feet of the present and the golden head of the past, or when he mixes multiple temporalities together, such visions indicate not only that history has the capacity to repeat itself, but that the past and the future are implicated in the present moment. Such constructions of temporality challenge linear models based upon uninterrupted chronologies, diachronic progression, and narratives of continuity based upon heterosexual marriage, biological reproduction, and patrilineage.

Gower and Sound

The Gower Project

In rhetorical repetitions that adorn the Confessio Amantis's plain style, in the many references to animal noises in the Visio Anglie, in the bird song punctuating the lovers' speeches in the Cinkante Balades and more, the fourteenth-century poet John Gower shapes sounds and encourages an aural reception of his trilingual corpus. Just as Gower often argues for the preservation of knowledge and philosophies developed in the classical world, so it can be maintained that the phonics of his verse preserve a literary ecology: one in which repetitions reverberate with both Ciceronian and sermonic orations, animal noises recall Aesop's fables, and bird song evokes Virgil's sherpherds.

Cha: An Asian Literary Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

1 July 2017 marked the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong's handover to China. This year also happens to be the tenth anniversary of Cha: An Asian Literary Journal. And so while we are immensely proud of the work from and about Asia we normally publish, we felt that to commemorate these two events it was time to take a closer look at the city we call home and love: Hong Kong.
