SAMLA 2014-- From Corn-Pone to Delmonico's: Feasting with Twain

Wednesday, April 9, 2014 - 12:22am
Kathryn Dolan, The Mark Twain Circle of America

Mark Twain is as popular a figure as ever. In "Corn-Pone Opinions" Twain writes, "The black philosopher's idea was, that a man is not independent, and cannot afford views which might interfere with his bread and butter... He must restrict himself to corn-pone opinions—at least on the surface." Twain satirizes the age's customs and politics, using food-based metaphors to do so. During his life, Twain went from corn-pone to Delmonico's. His dinner parties at Nook Farm were magnificent. However, he was also a powerful critic of the excesses and hypocrisies of society. How can we use Twain's writings to re-examine issues of consumption and overconsumption in U.S. society during the second half of the nineteenth century?

CFP - Phenomenology Roundtable

Tuesday, April 8, 2014 - 7:50pm

The Phenomenology Roundtable was founded at a meeting of the Radical Philosophy Assocation in November 2000, at Loyola University, Chicago. There, over coffee, several of us* gathered and discussed the lack of a space for doing phenomenology. We experienced the antagonistic and confrontational attitude of the dominant philosophical organizations; we bemoaned the lack of collegiality and constructivity in their meetings; and, most significantly, we noted the lack of a Husserlian starting point in most of the work of these groups. We decided we would form our own group aimed at a creative and supportive atmosphere in which we and other phenomenologists could discuss our work and interact with one another.

Sex and Reproduction in Irish Modernism--MSA 16 (Pittsburgh, November 6-9, 2014)

Tuesday, April 8, 2014 - 3:47pm
Daniel Aureliano Newman / University of Toronto

James Joyce once described the Irish artist as a "man without a sexual education." This proposed panel explores how a culture of silence and repression of sexuality, especially as it relates to reproduction, inflects and motivates Irish modernist literature. Of particular interest are papers on Elizabeth Bowen or the early work of Edna O'Brien, but all proposals on reproduction/sex in Irish modernism will be considered. Please send an abstract (max. 250 words) and a brief professional bio to Dan Newman (daniel.newman[at]mail.utoronto.ca) by May 2, 2014.

*This CFP is for a proposed panel for the Modernist Studies Association Conference to be held in Pittsburgh on November 6-9.

The first two editions of the Conference Messengers from the Stars (Episode I and II), organized in 2010 and 2012, gained a significant success. So, we announce a third conference dedicated to this subject.
