What’s Missing in Shakespeare?

Shakespeare's plays are often complicated by what they lack. Key characters go missing from scenes or drop out of the action entirely; absent characters exert influence over those onstage; mislaid or immaterial objects are pivotal to the resolutions of plots; urgent questions are settled through silences; and plays are frequently haunted by untaken roads or abandoned plot threads. In addition, contemporary performances are shaped significantly by cuts to the script, with some scenes or characters rarely realized in performance, and some plays rarely performed at all.

A conference sponsored by the “Uses of Literature” Research Project at the University of Southern Denmark, October 3-4, 2019

What is there left to say about love? Endlessly invoked, celebrated, assailed, abused, and parodied, love has been hailed as the meaning of life and disdained as the ultimate cliché. This conference is inspired by the conviction that love is poised to become a focus of renewed interest in the humanities. We anticipate two main focal points for the conference, without excluding other options.

Journal Submission - Call: great apes and personhood

Monday, April 2, 2018 - 12:36pm
ASEBL Journal, St. Francis College
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 1, 2018

Call for a paper that addresses and compares great ape intelligence and social behavior. Specifically, we’d be interested, in line with the aims and scope of the journal, for a paper that looks at, among great apes, what has been traditionally considered human-unique traits and characteristics like moral behavior. Therefore, emphasis could be placed, comparatively speaking even among the great apes, on the similarities and differences in helping, aggression, and intelligence among orangutans, gorillas, chimpanzees, and bonobos. In this regard, one could discuss recent findings in the context of great ape personhood. In turn, the paper could dovetail into a discussion about great apes in captivity, habitat loss, and animal rights.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Edited Collection

The CW’s show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has attracted considerable critical acclaim, including creator and star Rachel Bloom’s Golden Globe for Best Actress and Emmy awards for choreography and editing. Because of its female creator, screenwriter, and directors, its hybrid form as a television musical comedy, and its blatant engagement with “sexist term[s]” and mental illness, the show is ripe for feminist media analysis. I seek proposals for papers for an edited collection on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

Photo. Graphic. Modernism.


Panel proposal for MSA Columbus, November 8-11 2018


This panel considers how working with photography reshapes how modernist writers conceived of graphic or violent images. Taking Virginia Woolf’s decision to leave the photos of “dead bodies and ruined houses” out of her feminist, anti-war essay, Three Guineas (1938), as a starting point, this panel welcomes papers that interrogate the relationship between literature and photography, particularly as it relates to images of violence, war, and dispossession.


Putting on a Good Show: Professor as Performer

Pacific Ancient and Modern Languages Association (PAMLA 2018, Bellingham, WA)

Jill Carroll, writing for the Chronicle of Higher Education, argues that all instructors use a “teaching persona,” even those who unconsciously adopt what she calls a “default” persona. “If it [the default persona] works for you, consider yourself lucky,” she writes, “but if it doesn’t, the results can be messy.” This panel intends to address our teaching personae, and asks that participants consider the following questions (or any other questions that seem relevant to the issue at hand):

-Do you purposefully craft a persona for yourself, and if so, how have you gone about it?

-If at multiple universities, do you sample different approaches or personas?

-Who or what are your influences?
