CFP: Technology and Romanticism, special issue of The Romantic Circles Pedagogy Commons

CFP: Technology and Romanticism, special issue of The Romantic Circles Pedagogy Commons

The conference organizers are soliciting essays for a special issue of The Romantic Circles Pedagogy Commons focused on technology in Romanticism courses. Selected essays will represent two aspects of technology: the technologies we use in the classroom to teach students about Romanticism and integrating information about the technologies used by Romantic-era writers and readers into literature courses.

Topics might include:
  • Classroom uses of digital archives, collections, and/or databases
  • Thematic units, activities, and/or assignments on Romantic-period technologies
  • Applications of quantitative analysis tools in the undergraduate and graduate classroom
  • Student-generated digital projects and websites (including assignments and assessment guidelines)
  • Romanticists as educators and public intellectuals in the digital/social media age
  • Romantic literature in hybrid classrooms
The conference organizers are especially interested in essays that consider questions of access (such as subscription services that are prohibitively expensive for many schools) or pedagogical challenges (such as managing digital projects/assignments among students with varying technical skill levels) as they might relate to any of the topics listed above. The organizers look forward to hearing from individuals working in a variety of environments from large public institutions with graduate programs to smaller liberal arts schools focused on undergraduate teaching. 500-word abstracts and 1-page CVs are due on January 30, 2015.  Decisions will be made by March 1, 2015.  Completed essays of 4,000-6,000 words will be due on June 15, 2015.
Please send inquiries and submissions to:
Lindsey Eckert, Georgia State University (LEckert@gsu.edu) and Lissette Lopez Szwydky, University of Arkansas (Lissette@uark.edu)

This exhibit also takes in consideration comics that are born digital. The webcomics represent a unique opportunity for their creators to provide outreach to multiple audiences.

The cultural products of the last century reflect change, opportunity, and uncertainty, and demonstrate active negotiations between personal identity and social awareness, nationalism and cosmopolitanism, artistic voice and security. This conference, in the centennial year of the Revolution, seeks to explore the transformations set in motion during and after the events of 1917 through an examination of cultural production and practices, located both within and without Russia.

We will explore first and foremost the issue of human migration, particularly the patterns and developments set in motion by the Revolution. In light of today’s desperate discu…

CFP: Accelerated development? Socio-political landslides, cultural ruptures and literary history in Eastern Europe (Ghent University, Ghent, September 29 – October 1, 2017)

In 1964 the Bulgarian-Belarusian-Russian scholar Georgii Gachev coined the term ‘uskorennoe razvitie’ or ‘accelerated development’ in his 1964 monograph Accelerated Development of Literature: On the Basis of the Bulgarian Literature of the First Half of the 19thCenturyThe term describes what happened to Bulgarian literature during Ottoman rule. Being a ‘young’ and ‘peripheral’ literature, having started to develop only recently at the time, Bulgarian literature ‘had to’ go through the whole evolution of European literature at a high pace in order to catch up with the latter. One of the side effects of this accelerated development was that characteristics of different style periods could even co-occur. Gachev’s thought-provoking idea has never really received a l…
