Anger in the Nineteenth Century: Critical Perspectives

Monday, August 9, 2021 - 7:31pm
Cambridge Scholars Publishing
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 15, 2021

From the Gothic beginnings of E.T.A. Hoffman’s Mademoiselle de Scudéri (1819-20), one could sense the heavy breathings of a darkness almost entirely manifested in Anger. When Olivier Brusson comes knocking at de Scudéri’s door, standing on the verge of being turned away by La Martinière, he responds in an axiomatic manner: “Remember, her anger will rest upon you for ever when she comes to know that it was you who cruelly drove away from her door the unfortunate wretch who came to beg for her help”. What Olivier communicates, albeit cryptically, is that the perpetuation of anger becomes a remote possibility in instinctive nescience, whereas Knowledge creates that anger which stands capable of generating fruitful results.

A new book series has been established by Routledge, with a focus on popular culture. 

The Routledge Advances in Popular Culture Studies series is looking for original and interdisciplinary monographs or edited volumes, which expand our understanding of popular culture as reflecting world challenges, contexts, and situations. The Series places a particular emphasis on evolutions and transformations within popular culture — with a focus on icons, narratives, practices, and identities — and aims to provide interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and transmedia perspectives.

The editor of the series welcomes proposals for projects on a wide range of topics, including (but not limited to):

"There Will Be Poems": Depictions of Masculinity and Care in Modern Media

updated: 
Monday, August 9, 2021 - 1:42pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

The title for this session is taken from the AMC series The Terror, in which an older man is heartbroken as he stands by the bed of his dying captain. “It was an honor serving you, sir. You are a good man. There will be poems,” he assures him (The Terror Episode 9). His grief and his care are portrayed sincerely and not as an indication of a lack of masculinity or courage. His desire to create poems for a beloved dying man is not pathologized and instead represents a strength of character. This year, NEMLA asks us to consider the theme of care, and our vulnerabilities and interdependence on each other.

Cultural Productions of the Witch: From Salem to Westview

Tuesday, September 14, 2021

UPDATED: The witch is a figure of cultural production. She is a representation of the layers of history and cultural context on the treatment, stereotyping, reception, and representation of powerful women who do not fit into patriarchal structures of power. Whether she be a symbol of women’s disempowerment or a feminist symbol of empowerment, the witch stands as a saturated figure in history, literature, art, and film. This panel is interested in the representation of the witch on a broad scale of culture -- ranging from myth to folklore, to Shakespeare, to WandaVision. The aim of this panel is to bring together a collection of papers that will overlap in the themes of the body, gender, and power.

Eating Feeling: Food, Affect, and “Other” Communities in Medieval Literature (ICMS 2022 Kalamazoo; online)

Medieval archives abound with accounts of food-related practices and encounters, with acute attention paid to the food habits of “others” (neighbors, foreigners, pagans) and the impact of communal eating in various social spaces. This session explores the rich intersections of food, affect, and communal identity in the medieval period. We especially welcome contributions that engage with affective responses to the food cultures of “others,” paralleled in the COVID-19 era by the Western world’s alarm at “exotic” foodstuffs, or contributions that focus on sociocultural practices (such as eating together or sharing dishes) long taken for granted but recently destabilized due to the effects of the pandemic.
