Childhood and the Production of National Ideals (ASA, 11/18/10)

updated: 
Tuesday, January 5, 2010 - 11:32am
Cynthia C. Degnan

This panel seeks papers that examine the ways in which children are positioned during national moments of crisis. Building upon recent scholarship that interrogates the placement of the child at the center of political debates in the U.S., we aim to understand how childhood functions as a key site in the production of national ideals. How do children - both in their conceptualization and their actualization - provide the chain that binds the family and the nation? Which children are thought to embody the future and thus must be saved for the sake of the nation, and which children are imagined to pose a perverse and degenerative threat to familial and national futurity?

Understanding the Loop: Music, Literature and the Visual Arts, March 3-5, 2011

The University of Liège's Interdisciplinary Center for Applied Poetics (CIPA: www.cipa.ulg.ac.be) will hold its fifth international conference on March 3-5, 2011.

The conference will explore the loop in a transdisciplinary perspective, with a special, but not exclusive, emphasis on literature, music and the visual arts. Of particular interest will be the extent to which the loop can be considered as a specific manifestation of repetition.

Potential topics could be drawn from the following list, which is intended to be merely suggestive rather than exhaustive:

Poe Studies special feature: Violence, Pain, and Trauma (2/15/2010)

updated: 
Monday, January 4, 2010 - 10:19pm
Poe Studies: History, Theory, Interpretation

For the next issue of Poe Studies, Volume 43 (2010), we plan a special thematic feature: Violence, Pain, and Trauma. Poe's violence is often so stylized that critics tend not to take it seriously as violence. Instead, we recognize the satire in the abuse suffered by the narrator of "Loss of Breath" and the decapitation of Psyche Zenobia, and we contemplate the symbolic meaning of Rowena's torture in "Ligeia" and Madeline's premature burial in "The Fall of the House of Usher." But given the fact that violence is pervasive in Poe's tales and poems, should we not also consider what his work implies about the nature of physical cruelty, of suffering and anguish?
