The Silence of Dean Maitland: Page, Stage, Screen (critical edition and new essays)

In 1886, Maxwell Gray (pseudonym for Mary Gleed Tuttiett) published The Silence of Dean Maitland. The plot of the scandalous novel concerns a young British clergyman, Cyril Maitland, who, after killing the father of a village woman he has seduced, allows a friend, Henry Everard, to be implicated in the crime. Following a trial, Henry is transported to Australia, where he serves out a twenty year prison sentence, while Cyril ascends the church hierarchy. The Silence of Dean Maitland was a bestseller. It was subsequently adapted for the stage and the screen: the play was a hit; the silent film of 1914 enjoyed considerable success in the U.K. and Australia; and the film of 1934 was something of a blockbuster.

Women, Rewriting (and) Authority: Critical Approaches to Feminist Translation (Roundtable)

Thursday, July 28, 2016 - 9:37am
NeMLA (Northeast Modern Language Association)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This roundtable addresses the negotiation of the textual authority of those who call themselves or are called "women" vis à vis critical approaches in feminist and translation theory. The convergence of feminist and translation studies allows for the examination of power differentials in relation to women's roles as authors, translators, and activists. Moreover, this criticism has been useful in revealing the historical and present silencing of women's contributions as cultural agents. The goal of this roundtable is to consider how translation brings global and historical feminisms into dialogue, and in doing so, challenges legacies of hegemonic cultural authority.

Pivot: A Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies and Thought

“When you are in the middle of a story it isn’t a story at all, but only a confusion; a dark roaring, a blindness, a wreckage of shattered glass and splintered wood; like a house in a whirlwind, or else a boat crushed by the icebergs or swept over the rapids, and all aboard powerless to stop it.”
– Margaret Atwood

“Here am I and there is my body dancing on glass”
– Sarah Kane

Popular rhetoric about athletics consistently emphasizes corporeal mastery and bodily perfection.  Always exhibiting physical and mental toughness, athletes train ceaselessly to reach the pinnacle of sporting accomplishment: taking things to the next level.  In fact, there is a good argument to be made that athletic excellence requires superhuman skill, for it is only when athletes devote 110% of themselves to their sports that victory can be achieved.

Soundscapes and Sonic Cultures in America

“That music must be heard is not essential—what it sounds like may not be what it is.” (Charles Ives)

“To think sonically,” Jonathan Sterne argues in his introduction to The Sound Studies Reader, “is to think conjuncturally about sound and culture” (Jonathan Sterne 2012).

The world has entered into the age of universal economic crisis. In this second decade of the twenty-first century, the long shadow of economic downturn and instability looms over not only traditionally underdeveloped countries and regions, but the superpowers of global economy, such as the US, the EU, and China. At the time when economy is at once a global priority and the source of worldwide anxiety, fear, and uncertainty, and when economic crisis seems to accelerate the crisis of humanities and higher education, the ELLAK will organize an international forum to reconfigure the interface of literature and economy and redefine the social parameters of literary studies.
