52nd Northeast Modern Language Association Convention

March 11-14, 2020, Philadelphia

This panel explores how strategies for reading the Bible shaped literary output during the 16th and 17th centuries. Recent criticism in the field of book history details the reading practices that evolved in response to the Reformation’s call for direct engagement with vernacular scripture. This panel aims to bring fresh thinking in the history of the book into conversation with the perennial topic of the Bible in and as literature, offering new insight into how biblical reading became literary production in this period.

Article proposals are sought for a special issue of a journal on Chaucerian resonances in early modern drama.

A Session at the Renaissance Society of America's Annual Meeting, Dublin, Ireland, 7-10 April 2021

This session aims to foster conversation about the relationship between Continental law (civil, canon, or Roman) and early modern visual culture. Chaired by Dr. Valérie Hayaert, it specifically probes how images of justice were adapted to conform to local custom in order to retain their effectiveness. However, any topic that addresses early modern European law and visual culture (including but not limited to painting, sculpture, book illustration, and public murals) is welcome and will be considered for inclusion on the panel.

Please send the following to Hayley Cotter (hcotter@umass.edu) by 15 July 2020:

Cultures of Collectivity in French Literature Before 1789

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 31, 2020

In keeping with this year’s MMLA conference theme of “Cultures of Collectivity”, this panel solicits propositions that reflect on the many ways in which the individual and the collective were conceived in pre-revolutionary society. Rather than viewing the individual and the collective as being separate facets of social existence, papers that look at the liminal movement between subjective experience and the larger political body will be of particular interest. Possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to:

The Wooden O Symposium invites panel and paper proposals on any topics related to the text and performance of Shakespeare’s plays.

Topics could range from the art and power of story-telling, legends and tales, or the drive to adapt stories. Papers may also cover the topics of playmaking in times of war, plague, and other hardships, digital or virtual playmaking, and the importance of theatre during these times. We welcome unique interpretations of these themes.

Monday, May 31, 2021

We have been closely monitoring the situation in relation to coronavirus (COVID-19) and its potential impact upon the ‘Adaptation in the Humanities’ conference in early October 2020.

Based on current Australian Government advice, we have decided to postpone the conference until 2021.

We are mindful of uncertainty prompted by the outbreak and cannot predict what impact it will have in the coming weeks and months.

Our primary concern is the health and safety of all involved in the conference, and we are aware of the need to ensure the conference is as safe an environment as possible for all.

MLA Just-in-Time Session: Covid-19 and Early Modern Protest

Nikki Roulo/University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 1, 2020

On April 30th, 2020, protesters flocked into Lansing, MI, to contest stay-at-home orders that slowed the spread of Covid-19. A number of the crowd carried assault rifles, Confederate flags, swastikas and nooses. Such displays of racism and violence prompt a questioning of the “right to protest” and “allowed” voice, especially when such displays harm people.

Essays can deal with any of the Nordic countries and focus on translation, performance and/or aspects of influence on particular Nordic authors.

 

EARLY MODERN AFRICA

Relgion and the Marketplace
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 1, 2020

We are seeking one or two chapters to fill out our edited collection Religion and the Medieval and Early Modern Global Marketplace (already under contract with Routledge). Ideally the chapter(s) would provide a case study that addresses some intersection of economy (market, exchange) and religion (faith, sprituality) in medieval and/or early modern Africa. How did matters of faith enter the marketplace in a specific region of Africa? How did religion facilitate or provide resistance to the growing slave trade? How did religions adapt to changing markets?

Renaissance Drama: The Politics of Protest

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 30, 2020

Political protest has long been central to literary and cinematic histories from ideological and artistic manifestos to political pamphlets to satirical novels and realist cinema. They remain powerful vehicles for stimulating public debate, issuing calls to action, speaking truth to power, and heightening awareness of social ills.  Despite censorship, marketplace economics, and national politics, literature, film, and numerous other modes of cultural / aesthetic production continue to play an important role not only as agents of social critique but also as agents of social change.
