Whether he parodied, plagiarized, appropriated, translated, borrowed, or critiqued, Oscar Wilde’s work contains a web of references that vigorously engages with the voices of others. The way Wilde spoke with and through his sources may reveal not only his own influences and allegiances, but also aspects of larger conversations within late Victorian culture involving artistic production, Decadence, theater, journalism, scholarship, poverty, gender issues, sexuality, prison reform, and more.

NeMLA Roundtable: Genre of the Sketch in Long 19-century American Literature

updated: 
Monday, June 21, 2021 - 3:12pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

As one of the most versatile genres in long 19th Century American literature, the sketch appears in a variety of forms, including short stories, parts of longer novels, essays, biographies, brief plays, poetry, and more. What characteristics, if any, unite this breathtakingly diverse genre? Without a common theme or style, sketches change radically over time and between authors. Some sketch writers endeavor to render characters, scenes, or events from real life, like Louisa May Alcott when she recounts her experiences as a Civil War nurse in Hospital Sketches. Similarly, regionalist writers such as Francis Parkman, George Washington Cable, or Bret Harte present impressions of people and places.

Tuesday, June 15, 2021

Not so long ago, the links between Romanticism and vexed issues such as class, gender, or race, were barely explored within Romantic studies, despite that some Romantics embraced very eagerly what today sound like very unacceptable ideas such as the division of humankind into two primary racial groups:  the “culturally superior and beautiful Europeans” on the one hand, and the “Mongols”, namely “the ugly and inferior” Asians, Africans and Americans on the other.[1]

City dwellers have a unique opportunity to see and engage in group political activities that those in more rural areas do not. Their everyday lives can be impacted by political demonstrations whether they are actively participating or not. The perspectives that we usually get are from the government, press, or political leaders.

This panel will focus on the experiences of those who planned, participated, and/or observed protests in various cities. Ideas to be examined include personal vs.
