Heroes in Rober Cormier's Novel "Heroes" Deadline: June 1st

Monday, May 31, 2010 - 2:11pm
Eduardo Morones/ Moreno Valley High AP Literature Class

Robert Cormier, author of various renowned young adult novels, began writing at the ripe age of twelve. As Cormier began to age and mature, he slowly established a reputation as a brilliant and uncompromising writer. His masterful use of flashback and gothic realism has led him to become one of the most popular novel writers of the 20th century. One of his last novels, Heroes, revolves around the idea of heroism. Some scholars believe a hero is defined by his actions, while others believe it is a person's intentions which make them a hero. What is more important in a person's life - his or her good deeds or bad ones?

Victorian Sensation Fiction at the <em>Fin de Siecle</em>

Sunday, May 30, 2010 - 4:16pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

This panel will examine the ways in which Victorian Sensation Fiction interacted with Modernity. We will ask: How did the genre anticipate and respond to late 19th century Parliamentary activity? In what ways did sensation fiction challenge or reflect evolving ideas about gender and identity? Panelists will interrogate sensation fiction's relationship to art and aestheticism movements, advances in technologies including "iron horses," commercial culture, and Modernity's historical and political events, including Britain's empire project. We will discuss the ways in which sensation fiction seeded later literary movements such as the "New Woman" novels.

[UPDATE] The Terrors of Renaissance Drama, M/MLA (6/25/10;11/4-7/2010)

Friday, May 28, 2010 - 9:29pm
Hillary Nunn

Scholars have long been interested in the effects of physical violence in non-Shakespearean Renaissance drama. This Midwest Modern Language Association panel hopes to expand such approaches to consider how the era's plays depict – and inflict – terror in less explicitly physical ways. How do social rifts, economic practices, and language gaps create terror? How do staged renditions of crime pamphlets and folktales exploit audience fears? How do social and psychological dimensions of violence complicate or complement bloodshed? How do plays involve (and implicate) audience members in their terrifying moments, and for what purpose?
