Trans-spaces in 19th Century France

19th-century France is known as a time of transgression, an upheaval of societal norms. But aside from the multiple political revolutions, this time period also gave way to figures that managed to exist between the binaries of society. Examples of transgression, transformation, and transgender can be found throughout the century, ranging from Romanticism’s “génie sans sexe”- George Sand- to J.K. Huysman’s decadent, androgynous, dandy- Des Esseintes. This proposed session invites papers that examine representations of these trans-spaces in and around the literature of the 19th century. Papers could consider biographical, literary, or historical moments of “trans”.

Are We Victorian?

In 1875, Anthony Trollope published The Way We Live Now, a novel about financial crises, political corruption, debt, and xenophobia. These topics are familiar to us as well: The Way We Live Now is, in many ways, still the way we live now.

Much recent debate in Victorian studies has concerned “presentism”—the idea that we still live with in a Victorian world. Presentism says that there is not much new about “neoliberalism:” as the manifesto of the V21 collective puts it, “In finance, resource mining, globalization, imperialism, liberalism, and many other vectors, we are Victorian, inhabiting, advancing, and resisting the world they made."

1971-2008: Culture Between Two Crises

updated: 
Wednesday, September 20, 2017 - 3:45pm
NEMLA 2017 panel
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

The urgency to understand the transformations in the capitalist world system since the 1970s and describe its volatile processes of expansion has spawned a few creative attempts at periodization: Eric Hobsbawm’s “Landslide” (1994), Robert Brenner’s “The Long Downturn” (2006), Immanuel Wallerstein’s “Managed Decline” (2006), and Judith Stein’s “Age of Inequality” (2010) to name only a few. While economists and historians may disagree about the sources of crisis, from Harvey’s over-accumulation thesis to Brenner’s over-production and over-competition, there remains little doubt that the 1970s proved to be a “pivotal decade” and that we are now living with the consequences.

The Pastoral Hegemony: Innocence, Denial and Justice (ACLA, Los Angeles, 3/29-4/1/2018)

American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 21, 2017

This call is for a seminar to be held at the American Comparative Literature Association (ACLA) Convention, March 29-April 1, 2018 on the campus of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

The purpose is to re-think, re-tool and re-invigorate "versions of pastoral" as the medium of critique, and of the subsumption of the literal in particular. The supplementary purpose is to unearth a new series of pastoral figures, possibly beginning with that of a refugee.
