Nineteenth-Century Formations

The University of Hong Kong

December 6-7


This interdisciplinary conference asks participants to rethink the nineteenth century and its social, aesthetic, and discursive formations. It brings together scholars from a variety of disciplines to consider the categories that inform and shape our various disciplinary approaches to the nineteenth century. In doing so, it invokes the term “formations” in a broad sense, to convey the processes by which concepts, categories, structures, systems, and institutions—many of which remain in place today—came into existence during this period.


REMINDER: The Gothic, Then and Now (Panel at ASECS Annual Conference, March 19-21, 2020, St. Louis, MO)

Sunday, September 15, 2019

This session seeks papers that bridge discussions of eighteenth-century Gothic literature with discussions of the Gothic’s role in contemporary literature and culture. Questions explored may include (but are not limited to) the following: What does the eighteenth-century Gothic tell us about our own contemporary Gothic moment? Can studies of the contemporary Gothic shed new light on our understanding of the Gothic's eighteenth-century origins? Are we guilty of dehistoricization if we apply the term “Gothic” to contemporary uncanny or scary texts?

Socialist Side of World Literature

This proposal invites scholars to address the connection between Socialist Realism(s) and world literatures within and beyond the Soviet Union and the Cold War. As I. Anisimov stated in 1959 that, in the period following the October Revolution, the leading talents of world literature came to the side of the Socialist Revolution, since Socialist literatures associated with the new reality were rapidly developing not only in the Socialist world, but also in the capitalist world, where the best part of literature has joined battle to change reality. However, in the past decades the Socialist side of World Literature has not gotten the proper attention in World Literature studies.

Gothic Studies Special Issue CFP – Tales of Terror: Gothic and the Short Form

Monday, August 5, 2019 - 11:59am
Gothic Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 12, 2019

Tales, fables, fragments, sketches, and other short literary forms have comprised the fabric of scary stories told and re-told, adapted, transformed, appropriated and re-appropriated. Undoubtedly, much of their debt is owed to the oral yarn, the fireside tale, the urban legend, and many have, and remain, connected to a diverse and rich visual culture. The fragmented literary form integral to the early Gothic novel and played with by the Romantics is inspired by and influences other forms: the narrative painting or illustration capturing a scene, a moment; architectural ruins both physical and imaginary which simultaneously encapsulate a moment and a history.
