The Subject of Women in Proust

ACLA 2017 (Utrecht, Netherlands)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

Proust's narrative in A la Recherche du temps perdu suggests that women are merely objects in Marcel's development. Despite extensive descriptions and metaphors, female characters seem to slip away from concrete definition, defying assured characterization. Moreover, most critical discussions of women in Proust compartmentalize female characters either as “Madonnas” (Marcel’s mother and grandmother) or “whores” (Odette, Gilberte, Albertine, Léa, Rachel). But how are women in Proust's fiction more than just objects? Given their centrality to the text, a reexamination of the ways in which Proust writes female characters is overdue.

The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English studies, welcomes proposals for presentations for our 48th annual conference. The conference will be held in Hilton Head, South Carolina from March 30 to April 1, 2017. 

The 2017 theme is "Islands" and CEA invites papers and panels that address the idea of the island.  How are islands in literature and film, as in life, places of desperate refuge and welcome escape?  What respites do they provide? Are islands imagined utopias, or do they offer only barriers and isolation?  Finally, is the study of composition, film, language, literature, and writing, a kind of island amidst the tempest of the current attack on the humanities?

NemLa 2017 - Baltimore March 23-26 Thinking Space in the Anthropocene Era: Eco-criticism and Cosmopolitics

 

This seminar invites explorations on how to articulate theoretical reflections on spatiality within the frameworks of Ecocriticism and Cosmopolitics. In order to problematize the complex relationship that human beings establish with their physical environment, we seek to trace a genealogy of theorists who have elaborated different notions of space, from Humboldt’s understanding of the idea of Kosmos and Uexküll’s reflections on the concept of Umwelt, to the work of more contemporary authors such as Deleuze, Guattari, Stengers, Sloterdijk, Latour and Agamben.

Ethnic Literature and the African Focus: The Third International Symposium on Ethnic Literature

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 20, 2016

The development of ethnic literature epitomizes the complex relationship among literature, culture, and politics in a society. The recent immigration crisis from Asia and Africa to Europe has posed new questions for academia. Are current theories on ethnicity, race, and nationality still helpful in explaining the identity of these migrants? What do ethnicity and ethnic literature mean at this historical juncture?  How do we view the relationship among ethnic literature, diaspora, and globalization?
