PAMLA 2014: Autobiography in American Women's Writing

updated: 
Friday, March 29, 2013 - 2:16pm
Southern California Society for the Study of American Women Writers

The SCSSAWW seeks papers for a panel on the intersections between autobiography and fiction in American women's writing. How might autobiographic or semi-autobiographic novels, from Harriet Wilson's Our Nig to Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar, provide a space for various female writers to assert a voice within a dominant white, patriarchal culture? How do the formal conventions of the novel or the autobiography enhance or diminish the possibilities for this kind of agency? For what kinds of audiences?

This panel is open to any papers exploring the intersections between autobiography and the novel in American women's writing between the 18th and 21st centuries. Please submit paper proposals via the PAMLA website by April 15.

Etudes écossaises, n°17, 2014 : "England – the Auld Enemy?" (deadline Oct 2013)

updated: 
Friday, March 29, 2013 - 6:25am
David Leishman, Université Stendhal-Grenoble 3, France

The 2014 edition of the journal Etudes écossaises will be on the theme of relations between Scotland and England. In a watershed year for Scotland where the resonances of the past will clearly form a constant background to vital contemporary debates, we will thus continue to explore the process of rewriting the canon within the research project set by Grenoble 3 - Stendhal University's Centre d'étude sur les modes de la representation du monde Anglophone (CEMRA).

Reviewing the canonical status of England as Scotland's constituent Other will be this issue's focus, to coincide with a socio-political context where re-assessing, re-interpreting and possibly re-writing the relationship have taken centre stage.

Lateral Aesthetics (Edited Collection)

updated: 
Thursday, March 28, 2013 - 11:50pm
Co-Editors Elizabeth Adan and Benjamin Bateman

In her essay "Slow Death: Sovereignty, Obesity, Lateral Agency," cultural theorist Lauren Berlant contrasts "lateral agency" with the sovereign agency of the neoliberal subject. Where sovereign agency builds, intends, and extends the self via a purposive and propulsive will, lateral agency floats, spreads, and spaces out, interrupting the breakneck pace of capitalist production and suspending the self's forward motion. For Berlant, lateral agency symptomizes the exhaustion and attrition of the individual's will, at the same time as it expresses a kind of pleasure in practices of self-abeyance.
