Representing “Arabia” in the Long Eighteenth Century (ASECS Annual Conference, Baltimore, 2022)

This panel invites papers on eighteenth-century texts or visual art that engage with, provide accounts of, or create Orientalist fictions about “Arabia.” The growing interest in the Orient and orientalia fueled by eighteenth-century travelers to the Near East and by translations like Galland’s A Thousand and One Nights (1704-1717), rendered in English as the Arabian Nights Entertainments (1706-1721), produced a large corpus of works that often used “Arabia” as an umbrella term that described not one location, but many. How did these texts represent “Arabia” and the “Arabs” and what sets of images or cultural stereotypes about the place and its people emerged at the time?

Abstracts for 15-17 min. papers sought for NeMLA 2022 on the topic of "Dirty London." Even before industrialization, London was a dirty city. The Victorians brought the Sanitary Acts, which improved health conditions, but my use of the word "dirty" applies to not just those aspects of sanitation, but also treatment of sexuality in, for instance, My Secret Life, and other publications explored so well by Steven Marcus in The Other Victorians. The "Sanitary Aesthetic" is obvious in works by such authors as Wilkie Collins, George Gissing, Charles Dickens, and Elizabeth Gaskell.

The previous decades have seen the publications of stimulating and ground-breaking works that seek to recuperate and reconsider British women writers of this period. Literary criticism and feminist literary history have celebrated the existence and achievement of women writers, and shown that they were crucial participants in facilitating changes, transitions, and innovations in social and cultural movements, as well as literary styles.

Ben Jonson frequently referred to his literary works as his ‘mind children’ in the paratext accompanying his printed plays, and he movingly reversed the analogy in his commemorative poem “On My First Sonne”: rendering tribute to the deceased child by styling him his father’s “best piece of poetry”. Jonson is associated with a bold renegotiation of authorship in the early modern period, but he was far from alone in turning to procreational metaphors in descriptions of his literary practice. Metaphors of this kind were useful to writers in suggesting a close relationship between author and text and to grapple with the notion of creative innovation vis-à-vis tradition.

The Shelley Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 7, 2022

In 1818, the Shelleys exchanged their settled life at Albion House in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, for an Italian exile—a period distinguished by remarkable productivity and artistic achievement. To commemorate the bicentenary of Percy Bysshe Shelley’s death on 8th July 1822, the Shelley Conference 2022 will centre on the final two years of the poet’s sojourn in Italy. Beginning with the summer of 1820, the last twenty-four months of Shelley’s life were populated by brilliance. Within that short lease fall such works as Prometheus Unbound, Swellfoot the Tyrant, ‘Letter to Maria Gisborne’, ‘Witch of Atlas’, Epipsychidion, Adonais, the late lyrics, ‘A Defence of Poetry’, accomplished translations, and The Triumph of Life.

Anger in the Nineteenth Century: Critical Perspectives

From the Gothic beginnings of E.T.A. Hoffman’s Mademoiselle de Scudéri (1819-20), one could sense the heavy breathings of a darkness almost entirely manifested in Anger. When Olivier Brusson comes knocking at de Scudéri’s door, standing on the verge of being turned away by La Martinière, he responds in an axiomatic manner: “Remember, her anger will rest upon you for ever when she comes to know that it was you who cruelly drove away from her door the unfortunate wretch who came to beg for her help”. What Olivier communicates, albeit cryptically, is that the perpetuation of anger becomes a remote possibility in instinctive nescience, whereas Knowledge creates that anger which stands capable of generating fruitful results.

In Indigenous London: Native Travelers at the Heart of Empire (2016), the historian Coll Thrush repositions England’s capital not only as a city where decisions were made to dispossess Indigenous peoples, but also as a space that "has been entangled with Indigenous territories, resources, knowledges, and lives" from the earliest moments of the nation’s overseas settlement (15). Scholarship on the long eighteenth century has for a long time emphasized the primacy of Indigenous peoples. Taking Columbus’s landfall in Guanahani in 1492 and the forced removal of Black Caribs from St.

The Year Without a Summer in Europe was among the reasons that inspired some nineteenth-century British writers to write novels and poems reflecting on the event and its effects on human relations. Works like Mary Shelley’s The Last Man and Lord Byron’s Darkness are among the examples that describe the feelings resulting from such an event, especially in Shelley’s work, in which many racial and political issues arise from such a crisis. How human beings care about each other in crises and what dilemmas result from such events are the focus of this session, as these issues are closely related to the most recent COVID-19 crisis.

Not so long ago, the links between Romanticism and vexed issues such as class, gender, or race, were barely explored within Romantic studies, despite that some Romantics embraced very eagerly what today sound like very unacceptable ideas such as the division of humankind into two primary racial groups:  the “culturally superior and beautiful Europeans” on the one hand, and the “Mongols”, namely “the ugly and inferior” Asians, Africans and Americans on the other.[1]
