"For the ankres was expert in swech thyngys": Enclosure in Medieval Literature (1)

Friday, September 11, 2020 - 12:07pm

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 15, 2020

The 2020 pandemic has required everyone to think about the boundaries of self and body in new ways, but these questions were already at the center of medieval devotional texts from the Ancrene Wisse to the Shewings of Julian of Norwich, and even The Book of Margery Kempe, in which Margery seeks harbor wherever she goes. 

 

This session asks for presentations related to enclosure and isolation in medieval art, history and literature, especially works that influence prose writings in the vernacular.

Soil and Superstition: Constructing the Gothic Self

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Lawrence Buell’s essay “The Ecocritical Insurgency” (1999) claims that “human beings are inescapably biohistorical creatures who construct themselves, at least partially, through encounters with physical environments that they cannot not inhabit.” Precisely two centuries earlier, American writer Charles Brockden Brown advocates for a specifically American gothic tradition; Brown adapts the European gothic to American soil.

In his Defence of Poetry, composed in 1821, Percy Shelley asserts the central importance of the poet—a  general term he uses to include creative artists of all types—to the continuing development of civilization, even in the midst of the Industrial Revolution and the associated celebration of the sciences and technology. In praising the poet as the “unacknowledged legislator of the world,” Shelley sounded a call that still resonates two hundred years later, as the importance of the humanities relative to STEM programs continually becomes debated.  Of course, Shelley’s views on poetry were by no means representative of the period.

The proposed interdisciplinary panel examines the rich relationship of music and the literary works within various European literatures focusing primarily on the period from mid-nineteenth to the twentieth century, but presentations within a broader time frame will also be considered. We invite a wide range of papers investigating the author’s technique of representing music in literature, examining aesthetic, historical and cultural interactions between music and literature, audience and performers, as well as the relationship between the author and the composer, in real or fictional form.

Latin American Gothic Literature in its Early Stages: Trappings, Tropes, and Theories (NeMLA 2021)

updated: 
Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 7:14am
NeMLA Conference 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

The Gothic is having a moment, as it tends to do in times of collective panic and uncertainty. Even Latin America, whose geographical, linguistic and historical distinctiveness have supported its all-but-exclusion from global Gothic Studies, has experienced a rise in scholarship on contemporary Gothic horror—from studies on the double and hybridity to zombies and cannibals, among others. Typically excluded from this narrative, however, are theories on the origins and early representations of the Gothic, and how regional, linguistic and historical particularities nourished a Latin American Gothic tradition that, although indebted to its European Gothic predecessors, deviated from it in unique and meaningful ways.

Italian Romanticism and the Americas: Reflections on History and Myth (Roundtable)

Ernesto Livorni / University of Wisconsin - Madison
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Several Romantic artists and, in particular, writers focused on historical events that brought the Americas on the forefront of the European imagination. Certainly, many Italian writers looked at what then still was the New World with a prismatic approach, either because they were writing on historical events that occurred in North America (especially the formation of the United States) or because they were looking at the independence wars fought in South America; either because the Americas offered shelter to the exiles, or because they provided new ground for thinking about the relationship between nature and culture.

English Nineteenth-Century Panel

The 2020 Convention of the Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association welcomes abstracts related to English Nineteenth-Century Literature. Ranging from the Regency to the Victorian era, the Nineteenth Century was an eclectic time facing significant social, political, and economic changes. Considering this period of change (and perhaps even how our own time is one of change) we invite abstracts dealing with, but not limited to topics such as:
