international seminar on languages and cultures in contact in the romance novel

Romance novels have often been dismissed by critics because of their nature as a popular genre and for being written and read largely by women. However, in the last decade a number of scholars have approached the study of the romance novel with critical rigor and avoiding the condescending treatment of previous analysis. Quite often in romance novels we encounter characters that have very different backgrounds: come from different countries and cultures, speak different languages, belong to very different social strata or are, in some other way, an “Other” to the rest of the characters and/or the intended readers.

Uncertain Futures

updated: 
Thursday, March 16, 2017 - 9:56am
Canadian Association for American Studies / OCAD University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 3, 2017

Uncertain Futures is an interdisciplinary conference hosted by OCAD University and the Canadian Association for American Studies. It will take place at OCAD University, in downtown Toronto, from October 27th to 29th, 2017.

 

In her introduction to The Left Hand of Darkness, Ursula K. Le Guin writes that “the future, in fiction, is a metaphor.” In uncertain times, we look to the future as a blank screen for projecting our anxieties about the fraught present and unresolved past. Our fantasies about the future reveal the ideological constructs of our contemporary moment. “Science fiction is not predictive,” Le Guin writes. “It is descriptive.”

. . . . we moved together out of the clutch of the Fates, inhabitors of a world without doom; with a scratching, licking and chewing of pens, a whisper and passing of jokes, a titter of tickling, a grumble of labour, a vague stare at the wall in a dream. . . . (Laurie Lee, Cider with Rosie)

Non-Monumental Ecologies

Christopher Walker / Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 9, 2016

Contemporary environmental theory has adopted vast spatial and temporal paradigms as a method for reckoning with global-scale environmental problems. These paradigms—increasingly bracketed under the concepts of the “Anthropocene,” “Capitalocene,” “World-Ecology,” and “Great Acceleration,” among others—offer what has been termed a "god’s eye view" of environmental catastrophe. While granting a macro-scale view of human agency and ecological change, these monumental concepts risk collapsing into what Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht has in another context described as an “ever-broadening present of simultaneities.” In response to the “big history” turn, this panel will attend to the cracks, fissures, and seams in the monumental.

Thoreau and Material Culture - gaurenteed session at MLA 2018

How do material objects enrich our understanding of Thoreau’s literary, natural-history, and politically-minded endeavors? How might tangible things deepen our sense of the author’s work, life, and world? What insights can we gain by recovering objects associated with his work, home, and place? The Thoreau Society invites abstracts of 250 words and a brief cv by 1 March 2017: Rochelle Johnson (rjohnson@collegeofidaho.edu).
