CFP: [Romantic] The Rule of Law: Legal Studies in the Liberal Arts

updated: 
Thursday, January 15, 2009 - 9:31pm
Matthew Anderson

Call for Applications:

The Rule of Law: Legal Studies and the Liberal Arts

A National Endowment for the Humanities
Summer Institute for College and University Professors
June 15 - July 17, 2009 (5 weeks)

Where and how does the idea of the rule of law originate in the Western
tradition? What is its history in the United States? What are its key
texts, traditions, and institutions? How does it emerge in the artistic and
literary imagination? Is there more than one rule of law in the American
experience, and, if so, how do local “rules of law” comport with a national
identity?

CFP: [Romantic] 2009 MLA Special Session: Keats, Aesthetics, History (25 Years on)

updated: 
Thursday, January 15, 2009 - 5:15pm
Jonathan Mulrooney

I include the official CFP for a proposed 2009 MLA Special Session on Keats below, but since the
MLA only gives 35 words let me say a few more here. The idea is to consider the question of
Keatsian aesthetics and Keatsian forms a quarter century or so after the advent of Romanticist New
Historicism (and 23 years after SiR's "Keats, Politics, and then some" issue of summer 1986). What I
am hoping for are not so much papers that situate Keats's poems historically as papers that
consider how the poems' forms and figures inaugurate, enact, shape, represent, transform or
aestheticize particular historiographical practices or ways of imagining "history."

CFP: [Romantic] Gothic Sensations - Sensational Gothic (09/10-12/09)

updated: 
Friday, January 2, 2009 - 11:53am
Gothic Sensations

Gothic Sensations â€" Sensational Gothic
University of Salford, UK, 10-12 September 2009

The recent (re)turn to the study of emotion in literary studies invites a
reconsideration of the Gothic as a mode that relies on the emotional
response of those who are confronted with the uncanny and who, as a
result, experience fear. The ways in which writers represent emotional
response and immediacy is central to understanding the Gothic as a force
that transcends and transmutes culturally enforced structures of (self-)
control and the fashioning of gender roles and stereotypes.

Waiting Time

What are we waiting for? What awaits us? While often dismissed as a period of wastefulness or
lost time, waiting may also intensify experience and become a condition in which to consider
questions of modernity, aesthetic process, politics, erotics and the tempos of everyday life.

CFP: [Romantic] Transatlantic Exchanges, 1783-1863

Wednesday, December 3, 2008 - 5:01pm
Julia M. Wright

Call for Essays: Transatlantic Exchanges from the Anglo-American War to the
Emancipation Proclamation (c. 1783-1863)

A new and burgeoning field of interdisciplinary investigation,
transatlantic scholarship contextualizes its objects of study in relation
to exchanges, interactions, and negotiations that occurred between and
among authors and other artists hailing from both sides of the Atlantic. As
a result, transatlantic research calls into question established
disciplinary boundaries that have long functioned to segregate various
national or cultural literatures and art forms, challenging as well the
traditional academic emphasis upon periodization and canonization.

CFP: [Romantic] Essay collection: Romantic Texts and Politics

updated: 
Thursday, November 20, 2008 - 3:21am
Sharon Lynne Joffe

I plan a collection of essays on the connection between texts and
politics in the Romantic period. The collection will support the idea
that the text sometimes became a political work which called for
political reflection and/or change. Essays should therefore investigate
the works of writers who used their texts to reflect their political
leanings and ideologies. This collection of essays will reinforce the
notion that the political activism often associated with the Romantic
time period was promoted through the literature produced by Romantic
writers.

Please submit essays of about 20 - 25 pages by January 31, 2009:
