This special issue will focus on ideas of reuse and recombination. How were bits and scraps of materials, textual and otherwise, reassembled into new forms in the nineteenth century? To what ends? Essays might consider these issues in relation to images, fabrics, texts, and more. Possible topics could include scrapbooks, patchwork, quotation, citation, illustration, and any and all forms of recombination. Approaches from all disciplines, including literature, art history, history, music, and the history of science and the social sciences, are welcome, as are submissions that cross national boundaries and/or range across the nineteenth century.

War / After War: Memory, Fear, Indifference

 

Rutgers University; New Brunswick, NJ

October 4-5

 

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.

CFP: Women in Rock / Women in Romanticism

Of the 605 proposals received by Bloomsbury for their 2015 33 1/3 Series call for papers, only 18% of contributors and 11% of artists covered were women, even though the female series editor was aggressively soliciting contributions by and about women. Rock and Romanticism: Women in Rock / Women in Romanticism seeks to address a visible shortcoming in scholarship about women in both popular music and in English Romanticism by bringing the two together in this collection.
