"'Mother of everyone': The Achievement and Legacy of Muriel Rukeyser" 4/7-11/2010; 9/30/2009

William Waddell, Northeast Modern Language Association (NEMLA), 2010 Conference, Montreal, Quebec

"Mother of everyone," Maxine Kumin calls Muriel Rukeyser in a poem of that title from The Long Marriage (2003), and Adrienne Rich has both explicitly invoked her example in "An Atlas of the Difficult World" (1991) and extolled her talent and commitment in prose comments in her own essays and in an introduction to A Muriel Rukeyser Reader (Norton, 1994). The value and significance of Rukeyser's work is abundantly clear to these two fine poets, born half a generation later and thinking back through their mothers, as Woolf proposed that same decade.

The editors of /thirdspace: a journal of feminist theory and culture/ invite submissions for our forthcoming issue "Audacity of Hope?"

We are seeking submissions that critically engage with the notion of hope as it was used by a diverse assortment of constituents in the 2008 American presidential election. As a key theme in Barack Obama's campaign (and his book "Audacity of Hope"), the term evokes the possibility of transformational change. How does this version/vision of hope frame debates about gender and equity issues, struggles for equality and the recognition of difference? To what extent has the "hope" agenda impacted on politics, policy and popular media during Obama's presidency to date? This issue invites contributions that consider:

Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Culture, University of Southampton

A conference for postgraduate students and early career researchers, hosted by the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Culture, University of Southampton

Keynote speaker: Dr Peter Beal FBA (Institute of English Studies, University of London)

Many of the sources from this period are multi-authored and contain strikingly disparate materials, posing a serious challenge to scholars working within traditionally defined disciplinary boundaries.

CFP -- Teaching off the Grid: The Promise and Perils of Using Non-Canonical Texts in the Classroom (Kalamazoo 2010)

Gina Brandolino and Nate Smith

Canonicity is an increasingly embattled concept, and the lists of what texts are considered canonical for the medieval and early modern period are constantly growing. Despite this, every medievalist and early modernist can name at least three (and probably more) interesting or important texts that are considered non-canonical. This is not surprising. However open the canon seems, it is, by nature, exclusive and necessarily omits some texts. Many texts that have long been known to exist have, for one reason or another, simply not received the study that inclusion in the canon seems to require. Recently found texts, however significant they might be, face a similar obscurity and lack of attention.

[UPDATE] 18th Colloquium on Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Literatures and Linguistics. Abstracts deadline: August 15, 2009. Aust

The medium is the message. Using this conceptual framework, our conference will explore how historical changes in media from the oral to the digital lead to the emergence of hybrid literary forms and the constant reinvention of literariness itself. With the revolution of (e)merging technologies as our schema, we seek pluralistic and interdisciplinary research on the dynamic network linking modes of communication, mass media and textuality.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

Kalamazoo 2010: "Between Thinking and Feeling: Reading Devotionally in Medieval England"

updated: 
Monday, July 20, 2009 - 10:30pm
Jennifer Garrison / St. Mary's University College

Over the past two decades, medieval literary scholars have largely embraced the term 'vernacular theology' as an alternative to the previous term, 'devotional literature,' in order to describe the diverse array of English religious writings which sought to intellectually engage their readers in theological debates. This opposition between 'theology' and 'devotion,' however, creates a division between thought and affect that is not representative of the diversity of medieval religious writings. By questioning this division, this session will seek to contribute to the growing body of scholarship on medieval reading practices and to expand the ways in which we think about so-called 'devotional' reading.
