Poe Studies Association (session at MLA Convention)
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 15, 2022

This panel follows the occasional tradition of examining Poe’s life and works in an Eastern Seaboard city where he once lived and wrote that happens to be hosting the Modern Language Association’s annual convention, but with a West Coast slant as the MLA gathers in a land that Poe called “Eldorado.” Synonymous with the California Gold Rush, 1849 was also the year of Edgar Allan Poe’s mysterious death. 1849 was a productive year for Poe.

'What Does the Poem Think?': Aesthetics, Poetics, and Thought

Sunday, March 6, 2022

Two hundred years ago, P. B. Shelley wrote in his Defence of Poetry that the language of poets ‘is vitally metaphorical; that is, it marks the before unapprehended relations of things.’ Poetry, which is ‘not like reasoning, […] creates anew the universe, after it has been annihilated in our minds by the recurrence of impressions blunted by reiteration.’ In this way, Shelley gave enduring expression to what S. T. Coleridge had hinted at three years earlier, when he complained in Pope of ‘matter and diction […] characterized not so much by poetic thoughts, as by thoughts translated into the language of poetry.’ Poetry apprehends, formulates, creates, and cognizes in a manner unique to itself and irreducible to any other forms of reasoning or reflection.

A library is a good place to go when you feel unhappy, for there, in a book, you may find encouragement and comfort.    E B White

Literature always gives joy, comfort, and solace to everyone who is in search of it. The poems inspire and kindle our thoughts, the novels drive us to have patience and look for new paths, the drama reflects lives in miniature form, the essays make us ponder on the subtle observation of life, autobiographies motivate and lead us to the path of glory….there is no end to describe what literature is and how it shapes our lives. We at times advertently/ inadvertently drink, consume and digest literature. The famous English essayist Francis Bacon aptly puts, “Studies serve for delight, for ornament, and for ability.”

Transition of Romanticism through Ages.

Romantic Poets have always been viewed as Nature poets. The stereotype of nature, pastoral, or sceneries has been the trademark. But as literature students, we come across the point, is romantic poetry limited to nature, sky, river, and brooks? 

The best part about this small question is the ambiguity of the answer. On the superficial level, romantic poetry and Victorian poetry are confined to nature poetry. But Blake and Wordsworth are not the torchbearers of romanticism. The credit goes to Geoffrey Chaucer, the father of poetry. Chaucer has written The Canterbury tales has elements of romanticism.

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

Thursday, September 16, 2021 - 10:47am
Ileana Baird, Zayed University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 17, 2021

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?

Dirty London

updated:

J. A. McQuail/Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

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.
