Aristotle à rebours:

Unconventional Aristotelianism in Medieval Italy and Beyond

Sponsored by Italians & Italianists at Kalamazoo

ICMS Kalamazoo 2020, May 7-10


 

Aristotle’s transformation from heretical source to intellectual authority testifies to the fact that his scholastic assimilation was uneven and often controversial, and it is the aim of this panel to explore those figures whose Aristotelianism has been perceived, by either their contemporaries or their scholars, as historically peculiar or unorthodox.

Poetry and Identity: Shaping and Sharing the Trauma of Displacement (NeMLA 2020 - Panel)

updated: 
Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - 5:13pm
Lucie HOUDU (for a 2020 NeMLA Panel)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel will broach the topic of shaping a poetic identity through the prism of a traumatic experience of displacement. How does the poet present a disturbing personal history on the page? Coming from one place and being forcibly moved to another also involves confronting a different language and culture: how is such an occurrence translated to the page? Is poetry a space where cultures and languages clash with one another, or does the expression effect a reconciliation? How does this potential blend of languages and cultural references (including code-switching and code-mixing) inscribe a troubled identity, trying to reconstitute oneself via a poetic text?

The Lyric Self and Courtly Traditions

updated: 
Sunday, September 15, 2019 - 11:38pm
American Comparative Literature Association ACLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 25, 2019

A new preference for the production and consumption of lyric forms of poetry, over that of more narrative options like the epic, often coincided with a governing body’s establishment of courtly norms and practices. This trend is consistent across a multitude of seemingly disparate cultures. The popularity and refinement of the ghazal during the Ghaznavid dynasty and the sonnet at the Elizabethan court are just two examples of similar formal developments arising within different cultural contexts. Shorter lyrics were often formally rigorous, but also highly customizable, and many of these forms also called for a new emphasis on the construction and expression of self.

The Politics of Identity and the Poetics of Liberalism in the Age of Milton

Monday, September 9, 2019 - 1:42pm
Reza Pourmikail / Brandeis University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Since the 2016 election, there has been much soul searching in certain progressive circles about the role that identity should play in liberal politics in the United States and beyond. Authors as diverse as Kwame Anthony Appiah, Francis Fukuyama, Mark Lilla, and David Wootton have recently urged us to consider the possibility of constructing a form of liberalism in which identity does not necessarily play a central role. In the writings of at least some of these authors, we may discern a desire to recover the heritage of classical liberalism, with its emphasis on abstract individualism and the importance of so-called “negative” freedoms, such as freedom of speech.

Poetry and Painting: Conversations

You know how  

I feel about painters. I sometimes think poetry  

only describes.  

                          Frank O’Hara, ‘John Button Birthday’ (1957)

 

The supposed similarity between poetry and painting was famously characterized in Horace's ‘Ars Poetica’ by the dictum ‘ut pictura poesis’ (‘as is painting, so is poetry’). Yet in 1766, Gotthold Ephraim Lessing influentially argued for the limits that condition these different art forms — how could a visual scream ever be rendered linguistically?

Projective Verse at 70: Theoretical and Poetic Influences

updated: 
Saturday, August 24, 2019 - 4:07pm
The Charles Olson Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 6, 2019

The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a panel at the annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900, to be held at the University of Louisville from February 20-22. 2020 marks the 70th anniversary of this important essay, and the panel will therefore examine the essay’s theoretical and poetic legacies. We are interested in abstracts proposing innovative approaches to reading Olson’s essay and the conversations that it started. How have the theoretical or cultural contexts surrounding projective verse created a robust understanding of poetic practice in the post-1945 era? How have the legacies of projective poetry engaged with and inflected theoretical models?

CFP for NeMLA 2020, March 5-8. Boston, MA Panel Session: Visibility of the Invisible: The Idea, Theory, and Ontology of Trace

This panel invites proposals to examine the notion, theory, idea, and ontology of the trace and the ways in which it can be deployed in literature, critical theory, image studies, art, film, and other media and disciplines. 

---

From its rudimentary manifestations as smoke and fire and footprint, to theological significations of the image of Jesus on the Shroud of Turin, the trace, as a visible marker of an absent presence, generates a compelling milieu to meditate on the proliferation of meaning in text and image.

Women and Lydgate (a roundtable) @ ICMS 2020

updated: 
Tuesday, August 13, 2019 - 2:02pm
Lydgate Society
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 15, 2019

Lydgate’s relationship with women was complicated. Within 200 lines of one poem, he denigrates their instability and denounces another author’s misogyny. Beyond the treatment of women in his works, he counted several influential women among his patrons. Political and religious extremists of our own time have attempted to appropriate medieval studies for patriarchal purposes, and we must challenge these views by fully explicating the complexities of texts about and connected to women. This roundtable solicits brief papers exploring Lydgate’s relationship with women as characters and patrons. We will attempt to untangle the various threads of Lydgate’s treatment of and relationship to women.

Lydgate's Little Library @ ICMS 2020

updated: 
Tuesday, August 13, 2019 - 1:54pm
Lydgate Society
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 15, 2019

A full 43% of Lydgate’s works in the DIMEV have no print or online editions. Rather than situating Lydgate in relation to his “big works” that have (sometimes multiple) editions – “Siege of Thebes,” “Troy Book,” and “Fall of Princes” – we should take our cue from Thomas Warton, who in 1840 wrote that “to enumerate Lydgate’s pieces, would be to write the catalogue of a little library.” We invite proposals addressing “Lydgate’s Little Library” – those pieces that demonstrate his “versatility of talents” (to quote Warton) and do not get the scholarly or pedagogical attention that his larger works do.
