Thinking Modern Epic

updated: 
Wednesday, September 27, 2023 - 3:49pm
Benjamin Paul, Boston College
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

What can be said about epic today? Although M.M. Bakhtin famously declared the impossibility of epic in a modern, polyphonic world in 1941, the category has remained a dynamic source of artistic and critical interest. The works considered in studies like Franco Moretti’s Modern Epic (1994), Sneharika Roy’s Postcolonial Epic (2018)or Václav Paris’s Evolutions of Modernist Epic (2021) re-evaluate epic as a multifarious category capable of shedding light on the global, postcolonial, and postmodern condition of contemporary literature—either as a site of resistance or as a form of cultural domination. Yet even in its new, polyphonic forms, the idea of epic is rarely severed completely from its classical roots.

Next year marks the fiftieth anniversary of Patricia Nell Warren’s The Front Runner. I am planning an essay collection to commemorate Patricia (and already have an academic publisher that’s “definitely interested”). Pretty much any aspect on Patricia’s life and works would be welcome. There may also be a conference, but it would probably be a Zoom meeting. If you're interested, please contact me as soon as possible.

The Front Runner: athletics and homosexuality (the last taboo?), college life, fan mail, global reception, Olympic Games

 

The Fancy Dancer: Catholicism, smalltown homosexuality, Native American heritage

ACLA 2024: The Plasticity of Plasticity

updated: 
Monday, September 25, 2023 - 4:18pm
American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

As the concept of plasticity has travelled across feminist science studies and new materialisms to Black, queer, and trans studies, its meaning has itself become unstable—or plastic. Jules Gill-Peterson and Kyla Schuller offer an appropriately plastic definition: “plasticity refers to the capacity of a given body or system to generate new form” (1). Many feminist and queer theorists have sung the praises of plasticity, which promises to destabilize fixed forms of power relations, across the registers of gender/sex, race, and (neuro)biology (from Catherine Malabou to Karen Barad to Judith Butler).
