René Pintard in his fundamental study Le libertinage érudit dans la première moitié
du XVIIe siècle already highlighted the difficulty in distinguishing between the
illustration of a sincere fideism and that of a strategic fideism, expressed in order to
disguise otherwise risky affirmations. The authors that Pintard defines as “erudite
libertines” of the seventeenth century, a period when, like everyone else, even
atheists and sceptics died “well confessed and having received Holy Communion”,
were masters of hypocrisy by necessity. The same also went for the thought of the
following century, the century of Reason and the Enlightenment, in which freedom of

Back to “Normal”

The University of Florida’s Writing Program invites proposals for our annual Conference on Pedagogy, Practice and Philosophy. This year, as we approach the tenth anniversary of this conference, we want to recognize the continuing importance of developing practical strategies and approaches for teaching writing while also interrogating universities across the US’ desire to return to “normal” instruction this year, even as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

NeMLA Roundtable: Genre of the Sketch in Long 19-century American Literature

updated: 
Saturday, October 2, 2021 - 7:52am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

As one of the most versatile genres in long 19th Century American literature, the sketch appears in a variety of forms, including short stories, parts of longer novels, essays, biographies, brief plays, poetry, and more. What characteristics, if any, unite this breathtakingly diverse genre? Without a common theme or style, sketches change radically over time and between authors. Some sketch writers endeavor to render characters, scenes, or events from real life, like Louisa May Alcott when she recounts her experiences as a Civil War nurse in Hospital Sketches. Similarly, regionalist writers such as Francis Parkman, George Washington Cable, or Bret Harte present impressions of people and places.

Proust’s Way: Theorisations, Hybridisations, Mythologies

E|C n. 33, 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 23, 2021

The centenary of Proust’s death next year is neither the only, nor the first event in honour of the author of In Search of Lost Time. This year, for instance, we celebrate the 150th birthday of his birth while, in 2013, the 100th anniversary of the publication of Swann’s Way was marked by a number of festivities. In its celebratory dimension, this upcoming centenary may seem more apt for initiatives conducted under the ambit of French Studies than under that of semiotics or narratology. However, we believe that it offers an opportunity for a broader, trans-disciplinary reflection.

Overview

Embodied Rhetorics in the long Eighteenth Century (Roundtable)

updated: 
Friday, September 10, 2021 - 12:19pm
ASECS (American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 17, 2021

Where and why do we find examples of “embodied rhetoric” in the eighteenth century? We might think of Defoe’s description of Friday’s gesture placing his head beneath Robinson Crusoe’s foot signifying voluntary servitude and its relation to the supplicating figure of “Am I not a Man and a Brother” emblem, memoralized by Wedgewood. Or we might consider Trim’s gesture with his hat in Tristram Shandy describing how we pass from life to death, and onwards to Gilbert Austin’s Chironomia as a handbook for speaking gesture (building upon Bulwer’s Chirologia) as figures for something like “embodied rhetoric” or an emphasis on gesture and persuasive or signifying postures.

The Promises of Care and Saudi Women’s Invisibility

updated: 
Friday, September 10, 2021 - 12:13pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Saudi women have always been perceived distinctly in both Arab and global communities. It’s not a secret that Saudi women have occupied the focus of international interest for a long time. Although this interest may come across as “care,” leading political global forces hide behind the promises of “caring” about women’s rights to achieve political gains. In the latter sense, this concept is manipulated and misused. The misuse of “care” has led to Saudi women’s “hypervisibility” as oppressed, powerless, inferior, and unheard while their true power is still invisible. Evidently, to communicate their unique perception of “care,” Saudi women have utilized different tools ranging from publishing traditional genres to posting on social media.
