"Narratives of Catastrophe"

 

Newspaper headlines of recent years, detailing extreme weather events, the rising spectres of authoritarian movements and the surveillance state, not to mention the COVID-19 pandemic, describe conditions uncomfortably similar to those typically found in the dystopian novel. As one bookstore in Smalltown Canada put it, “the Apocalyptic Fiction section has now been moved to Current Affairs.”

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 25, 2022

E. M. Forster had something aesthetic in mind with that famous phrase, but it applies as well to more practical or material kinds of systems, networks, and patterns in American fiction, from the whaling industry in Moby-Dick (and the Pequod as metonym for that industry) to the various networks - transportation, financial, criminal, political, logistical, electronic - explored in the work of writers like Frank Norris, Philip K. Dick, Don DeLillo, Thomas Pynchon, William Vollmann, and Jonathan Bayliss.

Friday, November 19, 2021 - 10:46am
Jonathan Bayliss Society
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 25, 2022

The poet's lyric "I" is perhaps the locus classicus for depictions of interiority, or what it feels like to inhabit a particular psyche, to experience a particular consciousness, but this roundtable will examine such depictions in American fiction. Authors might include Jonathan Bayliss, Annie Dillard, Henry James, Jack Kerouac, Ralph Ellison, Kathy Acker, Henry Miller, William Faulkner, or others. 

The Jonathan Bayliss Society invites proposals of no more than 200 words, along with a brief bio, for consideration for a roundtable at the American Literature Association, May 26-29, 2022, Chicago. Please send proposals to Gary Grieve-Carlson at grieveca@lvc.edu by January 25, 2022.

*Extended Deadline* Shakespeare's Odysseys

Monday, January 17, 2022 - 2:33am
Shakespeare-Seminar 2022
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 28, 2022

In Episode 9 of James Joyce's Ulysses, “Scylla and Charybdis,” Stephen Dedalus develops a theory about the origins of Shakespeare’s works that is both original and controversial. It is in the National Library of Ireland that Dedalus, in a wild and winding conversation, develops his ‘Hamlet theory’. The episode stages the strong and sometimes comic appeal of a biographical approach to Shakespeare’s works and, at the same time, casts Dedalus – Joyce’s alter ego – variously as Hamlet, Hamlet’s father, Shakespeare, and as a modern-day Ulysses.

In Mithu Sanyal’s novel Identitti, shortlisted for the German Book Prize 2021, a fictional professor of Postcolonial Studies who identifies as a PoC causes a scandal when it turns out she is actually white – a premise resembling a recent case in American academia. Who is ‘behind’ a theory matters – but how?

Nothing exists that doesn’t have this senseless sense – common to flames, dreams, uncontrollable laughter – in those moments when consumption accelerates, beyond the desire to endure.
