Excellence, Innovation and Ingenuity in Honors Education (2018)

Call for chapter proposals (contracted book).

Many Honors Colleges in the US are seeking to be innovative, are seeking to map honors education onto the 21st Century. Not all truly succeed. Perhaps it is a failure of vision, perhaps a failure of leadership, or perhaps it is that true innovation means a rare combination of national and global understanding and experience, combined with wider experiences in many fields of human endeavor that make up a true honors experience. A new project will assist in exploring the possibilities for honors education!

Trans-spaces in 19th Century France

updated: 
Friday, September 22, 2017 - 10:20am

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

19th-century France is known as a time of transgression, an upheaval of societal norms. But aside from the multiple political revolutions, this time period also gave way to figures that managed to exist between the binaries of society. Examples of transgression, transformation, and transgender can be found throughout the century, ranging from Romanticism’s “génie sans sexe”- George Sand- to J.K. Huysman’s decadent, androgynous, dandy- Des Esseintes. This proposed session invites papers that examine representations of these trans-spaces in and around the literature of the 19th century. Papers could consider biographical, literary, or historical moments of “trans”.

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."

How to Make a Minority: Nationalism and Identity in the Postcolonial World

updated: 
Wednesday, September 20, 2017 - 3:47pm
Maryam Wasif Khan/ ACLA Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 21, 2017

While much of the Anglophone world remains transfixed on the rise of the majoritarian right in the United States and Britain, little attention is paid to the nationalist politics that have defined daily existence in states such as Pakistan and India, or Egypt, Turkey and parts of the Middle East through the dialectic of minoritization in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. This panel is interested in the cultural apparatus—literature, media, museums etc.—that has become indispensable in the making of national identities in the postcolonial state. What are the systems of “social reference,” to use Edward Said’s phrase, that enable the construction of a volk, of the people who constitute the nation?
