Cultural Representations of the Region in Transnational Contexts, c. 1840-1940

updated: 
Tuesday, May 17, 2022 - 6:59am
Radboud University, Department of Modern Languages and Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 1, 2022

The nineteenth century witnessed an upsurge of representations of the region across Europe and North America, in media ranging from literary fiction to the illustrated periodical and from visual arts to architecture. The rise of regionalism has often been linked to nationalism and nation-building. As such, the transnational dimensions of regionalism—in its themes as well as publication and circulation—are frequently overlooked. These transnational aspects are the focus of the Dutch Research Council-funded project Redefining the Region at Radboud University, which considers representations of the region in literature and illustrated periodicals during the long nineteenth century.

Radical Henry James

Henry James Review
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 1, 2023

Writing nearly four decades ago in the Henry James Review, Darshan Singh Maini, in an essay on, “The Politics of Henry James,” observed that “it is difficult to imagine Henry James in relation to any kind of politics, feudal, parliamentary, radical, charismatic, or messianic” (158). Perhaps unsurprisingly, James’s two most explicitly political novels–The Bostonians (1886) and The Princess Casamassima (1886)--have most often been treated as anomalous parts of his oeuvre, and together are often read as signs of James’s deep skepticism about (or lack of real interest in) radical movements and ultimately, in Alex Beringer’s words, “[his] final rejection of political and social radicalism” (37).

ASPECTS OF CHANGE IN THE FICTION OF JOSEPH CONRAD

Thursday, April 14, 2022 - 9:09am
South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 1, 2022

The SAMLA 94 conference theme of “change” encourages us to look at texts in different ways, which might include looking at texts that reflect real change or that perhaps illustrate the appearance of change coupled with a sense, ultimately, of stasis. This theme of “change” gives us a chance to examine Conrad’s authorial engagement with the potential complexities of change in society or politics and in our personal lives.

Dis/Orientations and Dis/Entanglements in Contemporary Literature and Culture: An International Conference

updated: 
Tuesday, April 12, 2022 - 3:17pm
University of Málaga (Spain)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 22, 2022

Under the auspices of the project ‘Orientation’: A Dynamic Perspective of Contemporary Fiction and Culture (1990-onwards) (Ref. FFI2017-86417-P), this Conference explores how the concept of ‘orientation’ can offer a renewed perspective on literary texts and cultural products alike. By positioning ‘orientation’ in close relation to (multiple) temporalities (or “polytemporality”, following Victoria Browne), space, and recognition of the ‘other’, this Conference (and the project) addresses the dynamic and fluid nature of today’s fiction and culture in English. As Sara Ahmed points out, “[o]rientations are about the direction we take that puts some things and not others in our reach” (56).

“Human and Non-Human Animals in 19th century English Literature.”

According to John Berger in his famous essay, “Why Look at Animals?” (1977), there was a fundamental shift in the ways in which Europeans imagined and interacted with non-human animals (domesticated and wild) in the 19th century. The nature of this shift, Berger argues, was a symptomatic consequence of the social, cultural, and demographic transformations brought about by industrialization, urbanization, and capitalism.

Wednesday, April 20, 2022

‘An obsession with individual identity pervaded Western world thinking in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Many people were worried they might lose themselves in the frightening darkness lying just beyond the earthbound. [...] The literature of the time reflects this fascination with the shaky foundations on which rested these authors’ desires for certainty in an unpredictable world.’

https://www.ncgsjournal.com/cfp.htmlThe term aslant slips between categories: as an adverb it indicates a direction or orientation, but as a preposition it moves across. Neither is it straight nor does it ever quite arrive, remaining in transition. A vowel away from Emily Dickinson’s imperative for poets to “tell it slant,” it strays even further.
