Radical Materialisms

Boston College English Graduate Conference

April 6th, 2019

 

***We are pleased to announce that we have extended the deadline for submissions to February 8th***

 

New materialisms and object-oriented ontology offer a radical reorganization—perhaps a democratization—of human/object relations, deemphasizing human agency in favor of a “parliament of things.” This conference asks if such approaches have been too quick to abandon human politics altogether. Can new materialisms be both conceptually and politically radical?

CFP: Neo-Gothic Narratives

 

Recent years have seen the strong development of Neo-Victorian studies, including a theorization of the project by scholars including Ann Helimann, Christian Gutleben, Marie-Louise Kohlke, Mark Llewellyn and others.  This collection on the Neo-Gothic invites similar attempts to define and theorize what exactly qualifies as such a text, what mobilizes the employment of the gothic to speak to our own times, whether nostalgia plays a role, and whether might there is room for humour or only for trauma in these narratives across various media.

 

We invite submissions on neo-Gothic topics that may include, but are not limited to, the following:

Peterloo at 200: Histories, Narratives, Representations

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 30, 2019

The Peterloo Massacre has been dubbed “the bloodiest political event of the nineteenth century on English soil” (Poole 2007, 111). Its psychological, sociocultural and political reverberations reach far and wide. The approaching bicentenary of the Peterloo Massacre calls for reappraisal and questioning through the (sometimes) distorting, yet revealing lens of narrative – that is, through the numerous ways in which Peterloo has been represented and retold in literature, art, on stage and on film. Writing about popular protest in 1819, John Gardner states that “Events are usually ephemeral and those present are often unclear about what actually happened.

The Matter of the Elgin Marbles: Romantic Materiality

Chair and Organizer: Dewey W. Hall (California State Polytechnic University, Pomona)

 

The Parthenon Sculptures have long been a source of disparagement and fascination, especially since their arrival in London as early as 1803. Prior to that year, Thomas Bruce, seventh Earl of Elgin, procured a collection now housed in the British Museum as the Elgin Marbles, intensifying a transformation in which materiality of the marbles has been infused with seemingly vital force through an after-life of aesthetic representation. Whether through drawings, paintings, or poetry, the Elgin Marbles as objects have animated their subjects—pensive in gaze—to motivate, in effect, proliferation through aesthetic production.

In the “Preface by the Translator” that Margaret Fuller penned for her translation of Goethe’s Tasso, she states: “There are difficulties attending the translation of German works into English which might baffle one much more skillful in the use of the latter than myself. A great variety of compound words enable the German writer to give a degree of precision and delicacy of shading to his expressions nearly impracticable with the terse, the dignified, but by no means flexible English idiom” (Art, Literature and the Drama, p. 355).

EXTENDED DEADLINE: “Perspectives on Eighteenth-Century Theater and Performance" (SCSECS 2019)

updated: 
Monday, November 19, 2018 - 8:38am
Ashley Bender / South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 14, 2018

This panel seeks proposals on theater and performance of the long eighteenth-century, especially those that address the theme of perspective. Essays might consider the way that perspective functioned thematically in plays and other public performances, such as opera, dance, and music, and the ways that perspective (e.g., perspective scenery) affected the material conditions of performance. What perspectives did eighteenth-century audiences have on theater and performance? How did these perspectives in the public discourse shape the drama and performances of the period, and how was eighteenth-century society shaped by these cultural institutions?

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 17, 2018

Ongoing public debate over politically charged public monuments reminds us how much is at stake in the shaping of cultural memory, whether through durable physical structures, portable or reproducible aesthetic works, or discursive representations. How were monumentality and the preservation of the past conceived in the nineteenth century? How might we reconceive our own ways of remembering the nineteenth century? We invite proposals for papers and panels that explore monuments in the broadest sense of the word—those from as well as those about the nineteenth century. We also welcome papers that consider the concepts of monumentality and/or memory as they pertain to humanistic disciplines and engage with nineteenth-century studies.

This year (2018) the Bronte Society, centres of Victorian Studies as well as Literature departments across the Anglophone world are commemorating the bicentenary of Emily Bronte's birth with several conferences and events. The three Bronte sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne, were born in Yorkshire between 1816 and 1820. They all died young, with the longest survivor, Charlotte, passing away in 1855, possibly from tuberculosis (like her sisters) or typhus. However, in their short literary life, the sisters published one volume of poetry and seven novels – many of them as the Bells – which have ensured their presence and influence in the English literary sphere to this day.
