Charting the Tradition: Irish Women's Fiction, 1880-1930; 2012 SAMLA Convention, Nov. 9-11; Deadline July 13, 2012

Wednesday, June 20, 2012 - 7:56pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association

This special session seeks papers that focus on any aspect of Irish women's fiction from approximately 1880-1930. Irish women's writing from nineteenth and early twentieth centuries remains underresearched, though several volumes, including Ann Owens Weekes's Irish Women Writers: An Uncharted Tradition, have sought to remedy this lack. This session aims to encourage such continued exploration.

Please send proposals in Word format as attachments of 250-300 words to Dr. Audrey D. Johnson, johnsonaudreyd@gmail.com, by July 13, 2012.

CFP: ICMS (Kalamazoo) Special Session on "Reconceptualizing the Literature of Late Medieval/Early Modern Scotland"

Wednesday, June 20, 2012 - 7:06pm
Timothy S. Miller

We invite papers for our special session at the 48th International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, MI (May 9-12, 2013): "On the Borders: Reconceptualizing the Literature of Late Medieval/Early Modern Scotland."

We are interested in seeing proposals on any topic concerning the still under-studied literature of late medieval and/or early modern Scotland, but especially those that address the challenges to conventional periodization that the authors of this notoriously "in-between" period represent (roughly 1425-1525, but with no strict boundaries on either side). Papers might focus on any of the following areas, although they are certainly not restricted to them:

Sobriquet Magazine is currently seeking a cadre of literary bloggers to contribute to its new "The Literary Life" blog (http://www.sobriquetmagazine.com/books).

A few guidelines for potential contributors:

Contemporary Literature and the Possibility of a Left: Toward A New Politics (Seminar, NeMLA, March 21-24, 2013)

Wednesday, June 20, 2012 - 5:31pm
Adam Kelly & Maggie Gram, Harvard University

Might contemporary literature help to construct a left politics for our time? Can it help us to revive old political models, or to invent new ones? This seminar solicits readings of contemporary literary texts that grapple (or afford their readers tools with which to grapple) with the possibilities of political engagement in the present. We ask how particular literary genres might be fit or unfit for contemporary political thinking, and how contemporary texts use literary form to engage questions of equality and inequality, corporatism, sustainability, democracy, racial justice, and human rights.

Rebecca West: Celebrity, Publicity, Memory, September 20-22, 2013

Rebecca West: Celebrity, Publicity, Memory
New York University, September 20-22, 2013

Although Rebecca West created a wide-ranging, original, and important body of work, her reputation has always been a matter of contestation. Indeed, to the frustration of scholars, her name remains linked to the better-known H.G. Wells, the lover of her youth and the father of her only child Anthony West, as recent books and films have shown (such as David Lodge's A Man of Parts and the Wells biopic War with the World).
