CFP: Neo-Gothic Narratives

 

Recent years have seen the strong development of Neo-Victorian studies, including a theorization of the project by scholars including Ann Helimann, Christian Gutleben, Marie-Louise Kohlke, Mark Llewellyn and others.  This collection on the Neo-Gothic invites similar attempts to define and theorize what exactly qualifies as such a text, what mobilizes the employment of the gothic to speak to our own times, whether nostalgia plays a role, and whether might there is room for humour or only for trauma in these narratives across various media.

 

We invite submissions on neo-Gothic topics that may include, but are not limited to, the following:

The Matter of the Elgin Marbles: Romantic Materiality

Chair and Organizer: Dewey W. Hall (California State Polytechnic University, Pomona)

 

The Parthenon Sculptures have long been a source of disparagement and fascination, especially since their arrival in London as early as 1803. Prior to that year, Thomas Bruce, seventh Earl of Elgin, procured a collection now housed in the British Museum as the Elgin Marbles, intensifying a transformation in which materiality of the marbles has been infused with seemingly vital force through an after-life of aesthetic representation. Whether through drawings, paintings, or poetry, the Elgin Marbles as objects have animated their subjects—pensive in gaze—to motivate, in effect, proliferation through aesthetic production.

[Deadline Extended] A Special Issue of The Global South (Fall 2021) - Contextualizing the Anglophone Novel

updated: 
Wednesday, January 9, 2019 - 8:05am
Shun Y. Kiang / University of Central Oklahoma
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 18, 2019

Since the 1980s, when the Jameson-Ahmad debate over how to read literatures putatively labeled as “third-world” and the notion of empire writing back to European literary traditions held sway in postcolonial studies, new contexts and ways of reading postcolonial and Anglophone literatures have been introduced and taken up. John J. Su’s Imagination and the Contemporary Novel (2011) and Mrinalini Chakrovorty’s In Stereotype (2014), for example, demonstrate that analyzing aesthetic and fictional representations of life in postcolonial realities brings into light the transnational aspect of contemporary literary production and the global marketplace with Anglo-American tastes and trends, both of which require further contextual consideration.
