CALL FOR ARTICLES ON RADICALISM
Erich Auerbach’s "Mimesis"—The Representation of Reality in Western Literature—was published in 1945 and had a tremendous influence in the middle part of the 20th century. Using a method of textual analysis to establish continuities from Homer to Virginia Woolf, Auerbach has been read by virtually every serious student of literature for seventy years now. Because of the scope and density of the book it is somewhat difficult to ready examine and evaluate Mimesis. This panel will examine Mimesis from two angles. First, we will study and reflect the overarching themes of this magisterial book. Second, we will look at his individual textual analyses to probe their validity and relevance in 2016.
Cette session, intitulée Maïssa Bey: l’écriture de l’espoir et de la liberté, se propose d’inclure des contributions qui mettent en valeur l’extraordinaire richesse de l’œuvre de Maïssa Bey et qui analysent des sujets tels: écrire le non-dit, rompre le silence, briser les canons de la pudeur, rêver et oser la liberté, être femme et écrivain en Algérie contemporaine, ressusciter les mythes, réinterpréter l’histoire au féminin. Veuiilez soumettre vos propositions (250 mots) à Florina Matu (firstname.lastname@example.org) au plus tard le 10 octobre 2016.

Revolutionary Genders 2016
The second half of the nineteenth century was marked by the emergence of the global women’s movement. Feminist writer Sarah Grand (1854-1943) is considered to be the first to have coined the term “New Woman” in 1894 in England. New Woman writers (in Victorian literature the New Woman novel forms a separate genre) participated in the feminist debate. Feminism altered the course of literature by challenging those literary conventions that governed the portrayal of women and women's experience at the fin de siècle. Feminist texts explicitly advocated social change and discussed new women’s roles in society.
