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.

The Romantics era was rife with social and economic shifts and imbalances as the Industrial Revolution brought destruction to the natural world and further stratification of the classes. In this increasingly dystopian climate, Romantic authors often sought an idyllic nature in which to imbue their utopian views; as such, the Romantic imagination became a mechanism through which authors essentially deconstructed the dystopian world and created the utopian imagination. Conversely, the Romantics sometimes deconstructed the utopian environment as a means to express the dystopian imagination.

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:

For its 25th annual meeting, the British Women Writers Conference invites papers and panel proposals considering the theme of “Generations.” As we look back on a quarter-century of feminist scholarship and practice within British Studies, we want to celebrate those who have defined the British Women Writers Association’s past and nurture those who will shape its future. Of course, even within literary traditions or scholarly networks, generational transitions are rarely ever easy or smooth. Such transitions may be accompanied by paradigm shifts, struggles to be heard, or difficulty letting go. We therefore welcome investigations into the complexities of generational exchange and transition in women’s writing.
