[UPDATE] - Deadline Extended to 3/21 - Framing Memory in Late Medieval English Narrative - MLA 2015

Proposed special session - MLA 2015. How do late medieval English narratives frame cultural memory? From the great famines at the beginning of the fourteenth century to the ongoing Hundred Years War, the twilight of the Middle Ages in England contains many memorable events itself, yet poets and writers during this period also draw on a fantasized English past - Arthurian legend - and the common trope of translatio imperii. Additionally, authors cite the authority of past auctors to validate their own work. As Larry Scanlon has noted, "Authority, then, is an enabling past reproduced in the present" (Narrative, Authority, and Power 38).

This proposed special session will examine the events, geographies, temporalities, and genres of Global Climate Change. In the wake of 5th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), this session will ask how the technical language of risk assessment—"exceptionally unlikely" to "virtually certain"—is narrated in different media to capture the unfolding and impending harm to humans and non-humans?; how can the imperatives of global social justice be addressed alongside pressing environmental crises?; what frameworks might address the uneven geographic distribution of harms and articulate the incremental yet inevitable pace of sea-level rise, desertification, and biodiversity loss?
