Archimago's creation of Una's double at the end of the first canto of The Faerie Queene exposes a critical tension at work throughout his poetry: namely, the formation of facsimiles. How is it that Una, the very embodiment of unity, can have a double, not to mention an evil counterpart like Fidessa—who is herself redoubled in her own alter-ego, Duessa?

This panel aims to tackle the confusions and consequences of the virtual glut of copies, replications, and doubles at work in the poetry of Edmund Spenser. Possible topics include:
• Characters and Counterparts
• Mirrors and Reflection
• Copies and Reprints
• Simulacra

Intermedial relations between literature, visual arts and music became important during the Romantic era which forms a turning -point in the understanding of such relations. German Romantic philosopher Friedrich Schlegel even introduced the concept of ´Universalpoesie´with an idea to include different forms of arts and knowledge into the literary narrative. In this session, which will take place at the ICLA conference in Korea 2010, we will discover the various forms of artistic intermediality in the works of Romantic writers. Apart from literature it is possible to present papers about other forms of Romantic art as long as they have some connection to literature.

For decades, scholars have studied popular romance, whether in romance novels, films, comics, or other media. They have studied its sexual politics and aesthetic structures, its audiences, its authors, and the industry that produces and distributes it world-wide. For the most part, however, they have done so in isolation, divided by boundaries of nation, genre, and academic discipline.

CALL FOR PAPERS REOPENED

2009 Postgraduate Conference: History, Mystery & Myth

Saturday 14th November 2009 at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK

In recent years trends in biography have shifted from the desire to present a definitive life to a more self reflexive approach. Metabiographies such as Lucasta Miller's The Bronte Myth, Sarah Churchwell's The Many Lives of Marilyn Monroe and Richard Holmes's The Age of Wonder provide alternative renderings of both the biographical subject and his or her entry into collective cultural consciousness.

This one day postgraduate conference intends to respond to these recent innovations in life writing by offering the opportunity to explore such questions as:
