The Uncanny in Language, Literature and CultureInternational Conference15 August 2020 – London, UKorganised byLondon Centre for Interdisciplinary Research

The twentieth-century literature and culture tended to explore and to celebrate subjectivity. But this tendency did not mean the turn to the self, but beyond the self, or as Charles Taylor puts it, “to a fragmentation of experience which calls our ordinary notions of identity into question”.

As people migrate, they are drawn to the familiar in their need to adapt to the unfamiliar, forming communities whose cohesiveness emanates from shared value systems and experiences. Culturally homogeneous networks constructed by migrant communities in the U.S. both shape and are shaped by the spaces they occupy. From these socially constructed spaces (like Mary Louise Pratt’s contact zones), which can be construed as physical, emotional, intellectual, or creative, immigrant groups negotiate their position in U.S. society. This transnational lens affects both individuals’ perception of their place in society and their success or failure to thrive in this new home.

The Song of Songs in European Poetry (13th-17th Centuries): Translations, Appropriations, Rewritings

Traditionally attributed to King Solomon and defined by Rabbi Akiva as the “Holy of Holies” among the sacred scriptures (Mishnah Yadayim 3:5), the Song of Songs is one of the most fascinating and controversial Biblical books. Fervently read and carefully explained, celebrated as a key to the supreme mystery of the union between God and men, the Song of Songs, the primary source for the Christian pervasive metaphor of the sacred marriage and eros, was a text crucial not only to the Middle Ages, but also to the Renaissance period. This ambivalent book, which combined a sensual celebration of love with a well-established tradition of allegorical interpretation, held a particular appeal for poets.

Hawthorne and the EcoGothic

The Annual Conference of the MLA will meet in Toronto on January 7-10, 2021. The editors of Gothic Nature observe that the Gothic now serves as a primary means to articulate the horrors of climate change and our current environmental crisis. EcoGothic, however, has been a fundamental component of American literature since William Bradford recoiled from the continent’s “hideous & desolate wilderness.” A recent spate of articles not only acknowledges this strange continuity but has begun to situate Nathaniel Hawthorne as one of the tradition’s key figures. This panel invites papers that further investigate Hawthorne’s entanglement with the ecoGothic.

Blurring distinctions between the morally edifying, instructive, and perverse, P.T. Barnum’s American Museum at the corner of Broadway and Ann Street in New York was central to the emerging culture of popular entertainment in the 1840s-1860s. Les Harrison estimates that by 1865, forty-one million visitors attended P.T. Barnum’s American Museum in New York: nearly six million more than the total population of the United States at the conclusion of the Civil War.
