Recent scholarly approaches in antebellum American literature emphasizes the role of secrets and secrecy, as in Dominick Mastroianni’s Politics and Skepticism in Antebellum American Literature (2022); essays on secrecy in Emily Dickinson’s poetry (Jeffrey Simons, Paul Scott Derrick, 2011); and the secret lives of nineteenth-century literature (Harper, Dickinson, Melville, 2022) in digital media, as Kayla Shipp has argued. This panel explores the way that unstated ideas, points, or secrets are exchanged in antebellum American literature. “Secrets” could be considered as gossip, or social exchange, in texts; hidden codes or alternate forms of discourses in various forms of writing; covert, extratextual meanings in texts, and much more.

Sewanee Medieval Colloquium
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 1, 2024

It's our 50th birthday, and we're having a party!

Please join us Feb 28th-Mar 1st, 2025 for a very special Sewanee Medieval Colloquium. This year’s conference theme is intended to be as capacious as possible to encourage previous presenters, respondents, and plenaries to return to the Colloquium to celebrate what lies ahead for Medieval Studies. The meeting is intended to celebrate the ways in which the conference has fostered conversations between established scholars and new voices in the field. To this end, we hope to create as many panels as possible that pair former attendees with new, emerging scholars as we think about the future of the discipline.

With the commercial and critical success of Yorgos Lanthimos’s Poor Things (2023), I am assembling a collection of scholarly essays that will explore additional unfaithful 21st-century adaptations (in various media) of Mary Shelley’s 1818 masterpiece, Frankenstein. Taking a page from Thomas Leitch’s idea of the “Ethics of Infidelity,” I propose that investigating the longevity of Shelley’s essential story (the overreacher plot coupled with an animated or re-animated creature) as translated into a variety of “adulterous adaptations” would demonstrate how the plot, structure, character types, themes, etc.
