Dr. Mark K. Fulk, Panel Organizer/
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 20, 2016

This panel seeks informed readings of British sermons written between 1500 and 1900, reflecting on the ways that the sermon fits in the literature classroom and for literature readers today.What new avenues of research can be pursued in studying the sermon in Great Britain's literature from 1500-1900? How do the well-known sermon writers (e.g., Donne, Andrewes, Wesley) and lesser-known (Barrow, Whitefield, Edwards) form, transform, and deform the genre? And how do we respond to the form as instructors of British literature in the post-Christian, twenty-first century? This panel seeks informed readings of sermons and ability to discuss them in their historical context as well as pedagogically for college/university classrooms today.

GEORGIA AND CAROLINAS CEA AT SAMLA

In “Ode on a Grecian Urn,” Keats declared that beauty and truth are as one.  But are they? T. S. Eliot called Keats’s pronouncement “meaningless” and “a serious blemish on a beautiful poem.” Scientists and mathematicians debate beauty in terms of symmetry.  Aestheticians ponder what is beautiful and try to determine whether it is true.  Ethicists and theologians explore the moral nexus between beauty and truth. For its 2016 GACCEA at SAMLA session, the GACCEA seeks proposals that discuss beauty and/or truth.  Potential topics include:

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 5, 2016

This panel seeks proposals that examine the performance of the monstrous on the early modern stage. Performances of the monstrous include but are not limited to deformity, animals, devils, witches, and other supernatural beings performed on stage. Proposals should consider the vibrant medieval iconographic images of the monstrous that continued to stimulate the early modern imagination. Questions to be addressed might include: how did staging the monstrous secure or collpase boundaries between the natural and supernatural realms? Did the monstrous on stage enforce or interrogate political, cultural, or religious authority? How might staging the monstrous call attention to the cultural power of the stage?

2016 marks the 500th anniversary of the first printing of Thomas More’s Utopia, the text that created and provided the name for its own genre.  Since the appearance of More’s text, utopias have been imagined as unreal realities and worlds where people exist according to a specific vision of an author, whose aim might be justice, art, or an imagined reality with a specific agenda. 

We request abstracts that address any aspect of early modern utopianism.  Please submit 250-300 word abstracts along with a brief bio or a one page C.V. by June 6, 2016 to: Dr. Ruth McIntyre, rmcinty1@kennesaw.edu.
