Nemla 2019 Seminar "Queer Women: Reading and Writing in 19th & 20th Peninsular Spanish Literature"

updated: 
Monday, August 13, 2018 - 12:28pm
Ana Isabel Simón-Alegre / Adelphi University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

The topic of this seminar is the presence of the “chicas raras” in Modern Spanish literature, also known as “queer women” in English. Queer is the perfect conceptual framework to think about how Spanish authors explore feminist themes, such as discrimination or inequality using their narratives as a tool to examine tensions in female subjectivity. The concept queer includes the idea of gender dissidence that encompasses how female intellectuals experience sex, sexuality and, gender. Even if oftentimes these writers have difficulties conceptualizing these notions, they are perceptible in women narratives, especially through specific genres: autobiography, memoir, romance fiction and letters.

Questioning Italian Romanticism: Foscolo, Leopardi and Manzoni in debate (NeMLA)

updated: 
Friday, July 13, 2018 - 11:24am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

The classical-romantic debate (1816-1826) was a crucial moment for the definition of modern Italian literature. Ugo Foscolo, Giacomo Leopardi and Alessandro Manzoni, while taking part in the discussion, express some of the key aspects of their poetics. These three authors, some of the most important in Italian literature, were deeply influenced by the debate; at the same time, they claimed their original positions, which are not completely identifiable as either Classicist or Romantic. Indeed, sometimes scholars have, for example, unduly classified Leopardi as a Romantic, even though he thought of himself as a Classicist.

1818-2018 – the silent revolution: of fears, folly & the female

Universidade Católica Portuguesa, Lisbon

5-6 November 2018

 

In 2018 we celebrate events which took place two hundred years ago: the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and the birth of Emily Brontë. While the two events are markedly different, as the former is a tangible work of art and the latter more of a promise of what was to come, both have contributed to challenge and change the conceptions and perceptions of the time, thus performing a silent, subtle revolution in the world of letters.

NeMLA 50th Annual Convention
March 21-24, 2019
Washington, DC

This panel will explore the changing sense of British identity for writers of the Romantic period. Papers are invited that consider the ways in which such writers as Lord Byron in Italy and Greece, Mary Shelley in Italy, William Wordsworth in France, and Samuel Taylor Coleridge in Germany may have developed new conceptions of themselves beyond their status as British subjects and revealed those conceptions in their writings of the period. Discussion of lesser known writers of the period is certainly encouraged.

Cognitive Ecocriticism Panel--NeMLA

updated: 
Wednesday, June 27, 2018 - 1:26pm
Todd Owen Williams/Northeast Modern Language Association Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This panel proposes to bring together scholars whose work combines ecocriticism and cognitivist approaches to literature for the purpose of considering the potential of the ongoing dialogue between these two fields. Ecocriticism typically looks at how environment is represented and how humans can create an optimal relationship with the non-human world. Cognitive science is generally interested in how humans represent concepts to ourselves and how we make meaning out of those concepts. An understanding of the mind is essential to an understanding of humankind’s relationship to and perception of the non-human environment.

Origins and Assemblages of the "Modern;" Shakespeare and the Gothic Imagination

updated: 
Monday, June 18, 2018 - 9:32am
Lucian Ghita (Clemson University)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 30, 2018

Writing in 1800, the Marquis de Sade claimed that the Gothic was the inevitable product of the revolutionary tremors felt throughout Europe. In revealing the proximity between poetic and political terror, the Gothic became the inescapable condition and symptom of modernity itself. The rise of the Gothic in late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century Europe is closely bound up with the discovery of Shakespeare as a "modern dramatist" by Hegel and, later, Marx. Like the Gothic, Shakespeare's plays had a propensity for exploring the "dark underbelly" of the new modern world. This seminar explores the mutually constitutive relationship between "Shakespeare" and "the Gothic," viewed as cultural catalysts for modernity and modern creativity.

Possible topics could include scrapbooks, patchwork, quotation, citation, illustration, and any and all forms of recombination.

War as memory.  The fear of war.  War as experience.  How does culture mark its relationship to organized violent conflict?  

 

In 2018, Rutgers’ Nineteenth Century Workshop will address the long-lasting effects of war on nineteenth-century literature and culture.  It is a topic we take to be both urgent and of particular scholarly interest to students of the era.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 2, 2018

This panel of the 32nd Medieval-Renaissance Conference (UVA-Wise, Sept. 13-15, 2018) invites papers on medieval and early modern villains and the dynamic ethical codes assigned them by authors, audiences, and critics. By villains we mean criminals, tricksters (such as professional beggers), political careerists, or poets and their characters, charismatic or not. Some viable threads: villains as likable (anti-)heroes; villains as reflections of med-ren political and social audiences; the vices, virtues, and skills of villains; the ethical implications their very existence conjures. Submit abstracts to Sherif Abdelkarim at sa2je@virginia.edu. Deadline July 2, 2018.
