SAMLA 2023: Bad Art

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, July 30, 2023

Scholarship on the politics of literature has, in recent decades, increasingly come to focus on
whether texts from the past conform to the values of the present. Some texts are praised for
modeling, even anticipating, our own progressive values, while others are subject to critique for
the way they ignore, license, or justify forms of inequity, injustice, and subordination. This
disciplinary impulse has come to seem not only justified, but natural. Yet it has also resulted in a
growing corpus of books being dismissed or maligned within the academy, books that are
crucially still being read and revered outside the academy. We call this “bad art” because we

We all have lists of things to do. We also have playlists, shopping lists and lists of pros and cons (not to mention lists of publications). Whether we make them on paper or with an app, lists are central to our lives. They help us make sense of the world around us, keep track of the order of things and sometimes create a whole new order altogether. Lists were just as central to the lives and experiences of medieval people. If anything, the practice of enumeration was even more common in the Middle Ages, when lists fulfilled functions which are now served by other tools sitting at the intersection of written and visual culture, such as maps and databases.

Panel at 36th CIHA World Congress - Lyon 2024 (https://www.cihalyon2024.fr/en/)

Grounding the Arts: Crossing the History of Art with the History of Earth Sciences

In 1597, Agostino del Riccio wrote in his Istoria delle pietre, “why do we visit Rome and Florence and other cities if it is not to see stones reduced to good shapes?" He thus expressed the link that has always existed between materials from the Earth and artistic creation. This link puts into question the relationship between the natural and the artificial, materials and crafts.

The Senses and War

updated: 
Tuesday, June 27, 2023 - 2:22pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

How do authors describe the sensory reality of war? What are the sounds of war, the smells of war (the textures, visuals, taste of war)? How are these described and how do they differ? These are questions that remain of interest to historians and literary scholars as we try to understand past events and representations of violence and conflict. From world wars to the war on climate change, our relationship with bodies and spaces is shifting and the sensorium carries these shifts. This panel is looking for abstracts interested in the senses and war across mediums (film, texts, art), whether these represent real or imagined conflicts.

Special Session at PAMLA conference 2023: 'What's in a Love Story?' Love and Storytelling

updated: 
Tuesday, June 27, 2023 - 1:24pm
Arush Pande, English Department, Princeton University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2023

On love being analogous to a battlefield, Roland Barthes writes: “From what language, one wonders, did these lovesick, melancholy grenadiers draw their passion (scarcely in accord with the image of their class and profession)? What books had they read–or what stories been told?” Following Barthes’ indicative questions, this panel inquires into the connection between love–as an idea, experience, or emotion–and the stories we have been telling about it over the long course of history. Can one imagine love without stories? What is the relationship between different forms of desire and the literary forms that bear their weight? How do changes in global storytelling practices transform our ideas of love?
