Are We Victorian?

In 1875, Anthony Trollope published The Way We Live Now, a novel about financial crises, political corruption, debt, and xenophobia. These topics are familiar to us as well: The Way We Live Now is, in many ways, still the way we live now.

Much recent debate in Victorian studies has concerned “presentism”—the idea that we still live with in a Victorian world. Presentism says that there is not much new about “neoliberalism:” as the manifesto of the V21 collective puts it, “In finance, resource mining, globalization, imperialism, liberalism, and many other vectors, we are Victorian, inhabiting, advancing, and resisting the world they made."

FPC #14 - ERASURE

updated: 
Monday, September 18, 2017 - 12:32pm
University of Liège/FPC
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 1, 2018

Call for papers: Erasure (FPC n° 14)

Erasure in poetry can take on various aspects. It can be the result of the poet’s revising her own work, or of a manipulation, possibly distortion, of an existing work. In the first case, it is part of the way a text is improved by being made more concise, more compact, and so more powerful. In the second, it can be either a textual substraction (we can think on Ezra Pound’s work on T.S. Eliot’s Waste Land), or a rewriting of the source text so as to remove part of its content and its form and so change its formal and semantic mechanisms.

FPC #13 - THE SENTENCE

updated: 
Tuesday, May 30, 2017 - 4:56pm
University of Liège/FPC
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 1, 2017

Call for papers: The Sentence (FPC n° 13)

The sentence is defined as the linguistic unit that makes up most texts, whether poetic or not; it is structured into an autonomous shape in which lexical elements are organised along syntactic relations and offer a semantic unity which is in turn inscribed in the text’s logical and discursive organisation.

As a formal element in the poetic text, the sentence is here viewed as offering two sides: its syntactic dimension and its textual function. In the context of poetic modernity these two dimensions are subjected to developments and experimentations that can contribute to the formal statute of poeticity.

Conflicted Spaces: Queer/Trans Relationships to Ideas of Safety and Space

In Conflict is Not Abuse: Overstating Harm, Community Responsibility, and the Duty of Repair, Sarah Schulman develops a critique of “safe spaces” as a projection of past traumas that become proscriptive in the present, a reading she illustrates with examples from her experiences as a professor at the College of Staten Island, CUNY. Despite the rapidity with which commentators such as Columbia history professor Mark Lilla associate student interest in safe spaces with “special interest groups” and identity politics, Schulman opens her book by situating her perspective in her experiences as a lesbian and ACT UP activist.

MFS Special Issue - Inter-imperiality

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

Guest Editor: Laura Doyle
Deadline for Submissions: 1 June 2017

The editors of MFS seek essays that engage with the concept of inter-imperiality, as developed in the recent PMLA “Theories and Methodologies” cluster (March 2015) and elsewhere. The global turn in literary and cultural studies, although productive, sometimes elides the post/colonial, economic, and other historical or geopolitical conditions of literary-cultural production. We solicit essays that offset this tendency by reading literary-cultural texts within an inter-imperial framework.
