MLA 2018: Race and Beauty in the 19th Century

updated: 
Friday, February 17, 2017 - 4:45pm
Anna Peak
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This proposed session for MLA 2018 (NYC, 4-7 January) seeks to explore the relationship between race and beauty in the 19th century. How were Victorian concepts of beauty tied to theories of race? Papers that define beauty in terms of Victorian aesthetic theories are especially welcome, as are papers that deal not only with physical beauty but with beauty in the arts. How did Victorian theories about music and art, for example, participate in imperlalism, colonialism, and / or race theory? This session seeks to deepen scholarly understanding of the ways that Victorians theorized beauty, broadly defined, in relation to racialized evolutionary concepts.

MLA 2018 Special Session: Catholicism’s Gothic Legacy

updated: 
Saturday, March 11, 2017 - 4:38pm
Geremy Carnes
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This proposed MLA 2018 (January 4-7, NYC) session seeks papers that address the relationship between Catholicism and English Gothic literature in ways that move beyond simplistic observations of the genre’s use of anti-Catholic tropes. Especially welcome are papers that situate Gothic literature in the history of English Catholicism or which approach the religious content and contexts of Gothic literature from “post-secular” points of view. Papers might examine anything from 18th- and early 19th-century Catholicism’s influence on the rise of Gothic literature, to the lingering anti-Catholicism (or, conversely, Catholic nostalgia) in 21st-century Gothic literature and/or film, or anything in between.
