Kalamazoo 2019: Beyond the Battlefield: Medieval Literature in Wartime

How does medieval war resonate beyond the battlefield? This roundtable session invites papers that consider the relationship between medieval literature and wartime. War punctuates our understanding of the Middle Ages, providing us with frameworks for comprehending and interpreting the events of history, and the corpus of literature created in response to these conditions is equally broad. In its most literal sense, wartime literature is the narration or memorialization of events on the battlefield, from the Battle of Maldon to the work of Jordan Fantosme and the poetry attributed to Laurence Minot. Wartime, however, is less a temporal or veridical marker than a loaded conceptual term. What counts as wartime? When does it begin and end?

NeMLA Panel - Literature, Theory, and Visual Arts: Hybrid Regimes in the 20th and 21st Century

updated: 
Tuesday, July 24, 2018 - 9:54am

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

The panel invites theoretical reflections and/or case studies on questions of influence, convergence, correspondence, contagion, intertextuality, and cross-fertilization in the discourses of contemporary literature and literary criticism, critical theory, visual arts, and art criticism. Where, why, and how do (or may) the discourses of the three seemingly independent disciplines intersect? How has the vocabulary of one helped shape the conceptual tools of another? What new possibilities of interarts comparison does this hybridation open for the Comparative Literature of the 21st century?

Negotiating Agency, Voice and Identity through Literature

Bookbird seeks contributions for a themed issue on agency, voice and identity. In a fast-changing world, where power is becoming more and more oppressive and undemocratic, agency, voice and identity are the very life elements that can sustain us. Our sense of agency—our ability to assert our identity, exert our voice and make a difference in the world—is closely related to our drive to live, act and hope. Citizens who contribute to, and receive from, their local and global communities, strive to have a voice in issues that matter and to be part of decision-making processes that are of importance. Such empowerment comes from developing a strong sense of identity.
