Dirty London

Abstracts for 15-17 min. papers sought for NeMLA 2022 on the topic of "Dirty London." Even before industrialization, London was a dirty city. The Victorians brought the Sanitary Acts, which improved health conditions, but my use of the word "dirty" applies to not just those aspects of sanitation, but also treatment of sexuality in, for instance, My Secret Life, and other publications explored so well by Steven Marcus in The Other Victorians. The "Sanitary Aesthetic" is obvious in works by such authors as Wilkie Collins, George Gissing, Charles Dickens, and Elizabeth Gaskell.

Locations and Landscapes in Weird and Horror Fiction

updated: 
Wednesday, September 1, 2021 - 2:54pm
Northeastern Modern Language Association (nemla)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

Landscapes, scenery, architecture, and locations are integral to the study of horror in fiction-- and yet, one might point out that they rarely recieve as much emphasis or attention as monsters that live within them. This panel is for these forgotten landscapes of horror and "weird" fiction--a place to observe and recognize the importance or triteness of the haunted house trope, the mysterious ineffability of Lovecraftian underwater temples, or the aged spirituality of Dracula's castle. This panel seeks to turn the paradigm of antagonist-focused readings of texts on its head, and start understanding place and location itself as a tangible and critical piece in the inculcation of horror.

INCS 2022: Print-Manuscript Layers in the Nineteenth-Century Archive

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 1, 2021

Archival studies and print histories reveal surprising and complex interactions between manuscript and print in the nineteenth century, and justify continued attention to the manuscript sources that lay beneath the surface of some print, or to the annotations and revisions layered on top of others. The rich discourse surrounding these two mediums can help us scrutinize the competing terms that oftentimes frame them (that is, that print signifies professional, public, and masculine writing while manuscript signifies amateur, private, and feminine writing).

Du Bois's Reconstruction of Language (C19 2022)

updated: 
Tuesday, August 24, 2021 - 10:29am
Thomas W. Howard
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 10, 2021

Writing about the reception of his essay collection The Souls of Black Folk (1904), W. E. B. Du Bois describes the text as a simultaneous mixture of clear messages and irreconcilable ambiguity. “A clear central message it has conveyed to most readers,” he claims, “but around this center there has lain a penumbra of vagueness and half-veiled allusion.” The difficulty, Du Bois suggests, comes from Souls’s attempt to reconstruct affect into language: “to translate the finer feelings of men into words.” Scholars frequently identify these fragments of affect and vagueness as part of Du Bois’s poetic style.
