The Victorian era, and the Nineteenth Century more broadly, witnessed a flourishing of interest in the supernatural, spiritualism, magic, and the physical and psychological sciences, which culminated in the emergence of occult beliefs, practices and societies. During this period also, the Gothic literature and art that had taken hold of the public imagination in the Romantic period continued to haunt the Victorian era, emerging in new forms that often embraced and experimented with ideas of occultism. Nineteenth-century occultism has received much critical attention, particularly in relation to its role in bringing about the apogee of British and American occultism in the early twentieth century.

Betwixt and between: Questions of the liminal

Thursday, December 15, 2022

How does the liminal manifest in the Spanish-speaking world? To what does it respond in various contexts, spaces, and artistic expressions? From colonial wounds, through border disputes, gender expression, and artistic hybridization, the history of the Spanish-language sphere is one of diverse networks of communication. The idea of the liminal allows for the revision, evaluation, and deconstruction of these bordered spaces, to elaborate a site of dialogue and encounter. This conference proposes to be such a site.

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted many of the social support structures upon which we relied, demonstrating both the fragility and importance of being part of a larger group. Whether in moments of uncertainty and fear, or times of celebration and engagement, our communities serve an integral function in our personal and professional lives as educators, learners, and citizens. This year’s CEAO Spring Conference will explore the various ways we have responded to the need for a network of others and how we might continue the work of (re)building communities and promoting belonging in English Studies.

REMINDER! "Fandoms and Platforms" special issue, Transformative Works and Cultures

Sunday, January 1, 2023

Fandom today is often entangled with digital platforms, which offer spaces and features that make some aspects of fan culture more widely accessible amid increasingly globalized communities and models of consumption. Fans are perceived to be early adopters of new technologies, particularly those that provide space for gathering and community building. Likewise, many types of fan works, fan labor, and fandom participation depend on certain platforms for hosting, sharing, distributing, and discussing such content. However, fans also have complicated relationships with platforms, whether because their needs and uses are in conflict with other stakeholders or because platforms can generate and challenge notions of access, accountability, and community.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 27, 2023

The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a session at the annual American Literature Association Conference, to be held in Boston, May 25-28. We are interested in abstracts that examine the influence of Charles Olson and/or other Black Mountain Poets on poetic practices and their developments up to the present. A variety of poets took up the innovative practices of figures like Charles Olson, Robert Creeley, Ed Dorn, Robert Duncan, John Wieners, and others associated with Black Mountain. How have the practices of this fundamentally important school of poetics been extended, transformed, and/or resisted by other poets?
