Lynne Bruckner

Looking for submissions for a collection of essays on teaching early Modern literature, and Shakespeare in particular, from an ecocritical perspective.

The volume encourages essays that show how teaching early modern texts ecocritically can be a matter of engaging in political struggle on behalf of the environment. Presentist approaches and essays that look at Shakespeare in different historical moments (including contemporary performances/films) are particularly welcome. Those who are ecocritics who happen to teach Shakespeare or other early modern texts, in addition to those who would describe themselves as Shakespeare or early modern scholars, are equally welcome to submit.

Gail Shanley Corso/Northeast Modern Language Association, 41st Annual Conference, Montreal

In Alice McDermott's novels, often teenage girls show disenchantment with their mothers' values and beliefs, and society in general. Carol Gilligan et al. in MAPPING THE MORAL DOMAIN explains that young girls "may see from different angles" as they develop into adolescence. McDermott portrays female characters in conflict over moral choices-- a morality of justice or a morality of caring. Gilligan claims in her analysis of the moral domain for girls, greater questions and concerns might emerge "about the society and culture in which [adolescents] are coming of age" (xxxv). Send 300 - 500 word abstract to Gail Shanley Corso at gcorso@neumann.edu by 9/30/09.

"Our Monsters, Ourselves"

This panel seeks papers on the historical significance and meaning of the monsters everywhere in our cultural moment. Following the line of thought that a society's supernatural monsters in many ways define them, "Our Monsters, Ourselves" hopes to open the discussion of the ways monsters in recent fiction and film represent the tacit panics, problems and pleasures of English-language, North American culture in 2010. Monsters are defined, for this panel, as those creatures presented as explicitly and literally "supernatural" or "artificial" by their authors.

A short list of dramatis personae might include vampires, ware-wolves, robots, ghosts, AI figures, witches and demons.

The Scrutiny of the Public Eye in the Work of William Faulkner

Thursday, June 4, 2009 - 9:14am
Victoria Bryan - SAMLA

In keeping with SAMLA's theme for this year (Human Rights and the Humanities) this panel aims to examine the ways in which the scrutinizing view of the public eye impacts the construction of a character's identity in the work of William Faulkner. For example, in her book Race, Ethnicity and Sexuality (2003), Joane Nagel argues that race is a social construction rather than an inherent aspect of identity and writes that racial divisions are created in order to "form a barrier to hold some people in and keep others out, to define who is pure and who is impure, to shape our view of ourselves and others." How do racial divisions—or other socially constructed divisions, such as sexuality, nationality, ethnicity, etc.—impact relationships within a society?

Queering the Caribbean: Towards an Open Discussion of Queerness in Caribbean Literature (NeMLA April 7-11, 2010; due 9/30/09)

updated: 
Wednesday, June 3, 2009 - 10:54pm
Northeast Modern Language Association, 41st Annual Conference, Montreal

What is the state of queerness in Caribbean literature and criticism in the early twenty-first century? Do Caribbean writers now find it possible to explore a more diverse range of sexual identities and experiences than formerly; is there a new wave of voices breaking the silence that Michelle Cliff both acknowledged and challenged in the 1980s? This panel will examine queer presences (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, androgynous, hermaphrodite) in Caribbean literature. It seeks both discussions of texts that explicitly present queer characters and engage queer experience, and interesting re-readings of texts not commonly placed within this rubric. Papers (in English) on texts from the francophone and hispanophone Caribbean particularly welcome.
