International Conference - Afterlives of Empire in the Public Imagination (Sapienza University of Rome)

updated: 
Wednesday, December 21, 2022 - 7:12pm
Sapienza University of Rome (Department of European, American and Intercultural Studies)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2023

CALL FOR PAPERS 

The resurgence of nationalist ideologies in Europe and the US has reignited interest in the histories and legacies of modern Empires. As of late, this has been strongly visible in the UK. The role of imperial nostalgia in the debates that paved the way for Brexit has drawn the attention of historians and cultural critics to how the memories and myths of Empire informed Europe-free imaginaries. Recent historical works have fruitfully investigated the legacies and memory of Empire in the UK and the unaddressed legacies of colonial rule, such as, in Caroline Elkins’s phrase, its “legac[ies] of violence”.

Tradition and Experimentation in Irish Literature since Modernism (Call for Articles)

updated: 
Tuesday, December 20, 2022 - 12:21pm
University of Lodz, Poland
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 31, 2023

The tension between adherence to traditional modes of expression, and experimentation has underlain modern Irish literature. Regarded as the epitome of Modernist experimental writing, James Joyce went so far in pushing the boundaries of what constituted prose as to become the object of criticism from such different commentators as Lukács and Pound, both of whom found fault with Joyce for the radicalness of experiment, particularly in Finnegans Wake. However, Joyce himself considered his work to be firmly set in the realist tradition. At a time when he was yet to publish his first collection of lyrics, W. B.

Gaslighting in Global Victorian and Neo-Victorian Culture

updated: 
Sunday, December 11, 2022 - 2:49pm
Tara MacDonald
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 1, 2023

The term “gaslighting” has reentered the popular lexicon with a vengeance in recent years, appearing in countless news stories and opinion pieces on the subjects of sex, race, politics, medicine, and emotional abuse. It refers to “the experience of having your reality repeatedly challenged by someone who holds more power than you do,” as one Washington Postcolumn recently articulated it. Such pieces often note that the term is drawn from a specific twentieth-century source text: George Cukor’s 1944 film Gaslight, based on Patrick Hamilton’s 1938 play of the same name, which tells the story of a sadistic husband actively working to make his wife believe she is losing her mind.

Filibusters in Birmingham: a Conference on Wyndham Lewis

updated: 
Wednesday, December 7, 2022 - 9:54am
University of Birmingham
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 19, 2023

In his travelogue Filibusters in Barbary(1932), the modernist painter and writer Wyndham Lewis evoked the fantasy of being ‘thoroughly unanchored’ from London, from controversy, from recognizability: from his life as he lived it at the time, in effect. The fantasy compels not only because it’s a typically contrarian move made by an unapologetic contrarian, but also because it invites reflection on the very Lewisian problem of autonomy itself.
