Literary Architecture Revisited

updated: 
Friday, August 4, 2017 - 2:41pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA 2018)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Following Ellen Eve Frank's Literary Architecture (1979), this panel seeks historically-situated papers that investigate the narrative capabilities of architecture, particularly lived-in architecture. Taking Frank's principle question of how architecture can embody consciousness within literature, this panel expands the scope of her analysis. Although the “spatial turn” in literary studies has produced a great response, its focus regarding architecture specifically as a constructed form that interprets a given space is somewhat lacking. This panel invites projects that work to close that gap and produce a discussion that maps out connections between constructed spaces and the self.

Submissions of both themed and general work will be considered for this issue.

Intersex in Literature, Film, and Visual Culture

updated: 
Friday, August 4, 2017 - 2:28pm
American Comparative Literature Association, Los Angeles, 03/29-04/01,2018
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 21, 2017

In her 2009 introduction to Critical Intersex, Morgan Holmes posits that intersex can never be “reduced to a pure, embodied state nor to a simple, cultural render in which ‘intersex’ is whatever we want it to be.” “‘Intersex’ then,” she continues, “is hailed by specific and competing interests, and is a sign constantly under erasure, whose significance always carried the trace of an agenda from somewhere else.” This seminar seeks to address intersex in relation to these “elsewheres” in literature, film, and visual studies. We encourage submissions that critically consider intersex in a broad range of texts, time periods, and genres, as a way of promoting and fostering a burgeoning field of “intersex studies.”

Approaches to Teaching Medieval Drama, Revisited (Session of Papers)

updated: 
Friday, August 4, 2017 - 2:29pm
Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 15, 2017

Twenty-seven years ago, Approaches to Teaching Medieval English Drama, edited by Richard K. Emmerson, presented possibilities for engaging students in the literary, theoretical, historical, and performative explorations of the field. Scholarship in the intervening decades has expanded these approaches and introduced new ones. Manuscript digitization, 3-D modeling of medieval cities, and online databases provide research and instructional opportunities far beyond those available in 1990. Research on Teaching and Learning and rhetorical pedagogies have demonstrated the importance of educational research and strong theoretical approaches. The panel welcomes theoretical and practical discussions of teaching all pre-modern drama.

Reminder: Considering Modernist Confusion (NeMLA 2018 Pittsburgh)

updated: 
Friday, August 4, 2017 - 2:28pm
NeMLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel reflects on the place of confusion in British and American modernism. Confusion has not been traditionally considered a proper scholarly response to textual analysis; critics are supposed to interpret a text rather than allow themselves to experience its uncertainties. What happens when we explore the confusion we feel when reading not as something to be worked through, but as something to be worked with? Building on affect theorists’ work on how our feelings can influence the way we read, such as Eve Sedgwick’s reparative reading and Rita Felski’s reflective and post-critical reading, how can considering confusion change both our experience of reading and our critical practices?
