New Issue: European Romantic Review Feb 2010

In Uncategorized on March 22, 2010 at 3:13 pm

Here are the articles (with abstracts) in the most recent issue of European Romantic Review (February 2010).  Editor Regina Hewitt also announces “they will publish six issues instead of five, the first and fourth numbers of each volume will feature expanded book review sections, and the fifth and sixth numbers will contain articles only.”

Face Value: Kleist’s Die Verlobung in St. Domingo. By: Gold, Joshua Robert. European Romantic Review, Feb 2010, Vol. 21 Issue 1, p77-93.
Abstract: This essay examines how Kleist’s novella Die Verlobung in St. Domingo uses the Haitian Revolution as a means of demonstrating the potential unreliability of language. Upon first glance, this text seems to comment upon matters of political significance, such as race, revolution, and the character of justice. However, closer inspection reveals that these themes enable the text to reflect upon the nature of the sign, the act of reading, and the ethical demands of interpretation. Nevertheless, even this self-reflective model proves misleading in light of those passages that cast doubt upon the narrator’s authority and the trustworthiness of certain details. By undermining the allegory that it appears to put forth, Die Verlobung in St. Domingo calls into question the authority of understanding.

Joanna Baillie’s Rayner and Romantic Spectacle. By: Murray, Julie. European Romantic Review, Feb 2010, Vol. 21 Issue 1, p65-76, 12p;

Abstract: This essay considers Joanna Baillie’s 1804 Rayner, a play about a public execution that never actually occurs, in the context of the dynamics of punishment in the romantic period. Analyzing how the play depicts the scaffold but renders it inaccessible by refusing to represent the death it portends, I argue that Baillie develops a kind of “romantic spectacle” that moves from the visual to the imaginary. Weaning spectators from their reliance on external forms, it effects their moral regulation by disciplining the imagination to produce such terrifying images on its own.

“A Labor of Death and a Labor against Death”: Scott’s Cenotaphic Paratexts. By: Tredennick, Bianca. European Romantic Review, Feb 2010, Vol. 21 Issue 1, p49-64, 16p;

Abstract: Shortly before his death, Walter Scott began work on a new edition of his collected works that came to be known as the Magnum Opus edition (1830). For this edition, Scott added paratexts in the form of notes, new introductions, a new general preface and so on. The Magnum Opus apparatus thus adds yet another layer to the already ornate framing apparatus and paratextual glosses Scott had included with the original publication of the Waverley Novels. This essay argues that these paratexts must be seen as essential components of his historiography. Through the paratexts, Scott offers a complex reading of his own historiographic work, one that denies any simple claims to recapturing or revivifying the past in favor of an honest reckoning with the way in which all historical projects become cenotaphic replacements for that which they seek to memorialize.

William Blake’s Visual Sublime: The “Eternal Labours”. By: Ibata, Helene. European Romantic Review, Feb2010, Vol. 21 Issue 1, p29-48, 20p; Abstract: This essay examines Blake’s visual aesthetics in the light of recent theories of the sublime. The latter, by seeing the sublime as a dynamic process located within creative activity itself, rather than as an experience that transcends the human, shed new light on Blake’s practice and theory. In particular, they make it possible to view the high degree of medium reflexivity in the illuminated books, as well as the artist’s original conception of linearism, as apt illustrations of such a sublime process. This essay shows how these well-known features of Blake’s art reveal his heightened awareness of the incommensurability between material representation and the forms of his imagination, and of the necessity to sustain artistic production nevertheless. Such an experience of the terrifying and energetic struggle towards an ever-elusive formal perfection, we argue, is a forceful expression of the sublime dynamics of visual creation.

Hybrid Gardens: Travel and the Nationalization of Taste in Ann Radcliffe’s Continental Landscapes. By: Gephardt, Katarina. European Romantic Review, Feb 2010, Vol. 21 Issue 1, p3-28, 26p;

Abstract: This essay interprets Ann Radcliffe’s revision of her continental settings as a response to the experience of European travel during the Revolutionary Wars of the 1790s. In Radcliffe’s earlier novels, particularly The Mysteries of Udolpho (1794), imaginary South European settings serve as a stage for fictional resolutions of British class conflicts. Following Radcliffe’s only journey to the Continent, described in A Journey Made in the Summer of 1794 (1795), the setting of The Italian (1797) becomes more geographically specific, and the novel, while stereotyping Italy as its title suggests, includes cross-cultural representation involving British travelers and Italians. In the conclusion of the novel, Radcliffe superimposes an English garden onto an Italian landscape. I argue that Radcliffe’s evolving treatment of landscapes in travel writing and fiction reflects the tension between nationalist and cosmopolitan attitudes toward the Continent that translated into competing standards of taste. These standards, which I illustrate with examples from landscape painting, travel writing, and the discourse of landscape aesthetics, invested landscapes with national values and inspired Radcliffe and other writers to differentiate between the British Isles and the Continent.

Book Reviews. By: Clark, David L.; Lee, Debbie; Cooper, Barbara T.; Ruff, Julius R.; Ripley, Wayne C.; Strathman, Christopher A.; Bode, Christoph; Lussier, Mark; Graver, Bruce. European Romantic Review, Feb 2010, Vol. 21 Issue 1, p95-142, 48p;
Abstract: The article reviews several books including “Romantic Moods: Paranoia, Trauma, and Melancholy, 1790-1840,” by Thomas Pfau, “Fictions and Fakes: Forging Romantic Authenticity, 1760-1845,” by Margaret Russett, and “The Limits of Performance in the French Romantic Theatre,” by Susan McCready.; DOI: 10.1080/10509580903557052; (AN 48253391)

CFP: W.T. Stead Conference, British Library, April 2012

In Conferences on March 16, 2010 at 2:28 pm

W. T. Stead: Centenary Conference of a Newspaper Revolutionary

British Library, London, 16 & 17 April 2012.

When William Stead died on the maiden voyage of the Titanic in April 1912,
he was the most famous Englishman on board. He was one of the inventors of
the modern tabloid. His advocacy of ‘government by journalism’ helped launch
military campaigns. His exposé of child prostitution raised the age of
consent to sixteen, yet his investigative journalism got him thrown in jail.
A mass of contradictions and a crucial figure in the history of the British
press, Stead was a towering presence in the cultural life of late Victorian
and Edwardian society.

This conference marks the centenary of his death. We aim to recover Stead’s
extraordinary influence on modern English culture and to mark a major moment
in the history of journalism. In 2012 the British Library will open its
state of the art newspaper reading rooms. In Stead’s spirit we will also
investigate our own revolution in newspapers and print journalism in the age
of digital news.

With Stead as a focal point, we will use aspects of his career to develop
multiple avenues into the history of his time and ours. This is not a
narrowly focused specialist conference, but one that aims to adopt wide
cultural perspectives.

This is a call for expressions of interest. Please send proposals for papers
(500 words) or any other suggestions for the conference to
stead2010@googlemail.com by the end of July 2010. A full call for proposals
will follow in 2011. Further details are here:
<https://sites.google.com/site/stead2012/>

We welcome proposals on the following, in respect of Stead and/or related
topics:

- Stead’s ‘New Journalism’. The Pall Mall Gazette, Review of Reviews and
other journals were crucial in the emergence of the modern day broadsheet
and tabloid press. Stead provides the opportunity to re-assess some of the
key phases in the influence and structures of the press in modern Britain.

- Stead and technology. Stead was one of the best recorders of the second
industrial revolution of the late Victorian period, when telegraphs,
gramophones, microphones, telephones, Kodak cameras, wireless telegraphy,
horseless carriages, typewriters and new printing technologies transformed
everyday life.

- Stead and the New Imperialism. Stead’s support for English colonies was
part of his advocacy for a white commonwealth that would be united through
journalism and new communication technologies. We welcome papers on specific
elements of Stead’s imperialism, from the support for General Gordon, his
opposition to the South African War, to his friendship with Cecil Rhodes.

- Stead and the Titanic. Rumours about Stead’s manly self-sacrifice and
Christian acceptance of death in the last hours of the boat were still being
repeated as late as the film A Night to Remember (1958). How was Stead’s
death reported? What was his cultural significance in 1912? We also
particularly welcome papers on any aspect of the Titanic, especially on the
role of newspapers in securing the mythic place the sinking has in our
culture.

- Stead and the occult. Stead tended to report Spiritualism favourably, as
part of the non-conformist world of religion. He became active in the
movement in the 1880s and tried to foster support for the Society for
Psychical Research. He ran the journal Borderland from 1893-7, which
reported on ghosts, psychical experiments, hypnotic rapports, astral doubles
and messages from the dead.

- Stead and religion. We aim to trace his early non-conformity, conversion
to secular Evangelicism, and his advocacy of a National Church through
investigative annuals, such as If Christ Came to Chicago. We also hope to
examine his alliance to William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army, whom
he helped compose In Darkest England and the Way Out in 1890.

- Stead and women’s rights. Stead employed women journalists and writers
and championed their role in public life. Typically conflicted, this support
derived in part from a Christian sense of women’s benign influence on public
purity (so that he was disturbed by the overtly sexual New Woman literature
of the 1890s). Stead is an exemplary figure to explore the anxieties and
contradictions of the gender and sexual liberations of the late 19C.

- Stead’s ‘invention’ of the tabloid moral campaign. Through his famous
campaigns (‘The Maiden Tribute of Modern Babylon’, the relief of General
Gordon, British re-armament) Stead interceded into contemporary political
and social debates and pioneered this major journalistic genre.

- Stead and politics. Stead’s political radicalism put him at the centre of
events in the 1880s, including the ‘Bloody Sunday’ riots of 1887 and the
Match Girl Strike in 1889. He was also a notable campaigner for world peace,
speaking at international gatherings in the United States and Russia.

- Stead and the industry of print. As journalist, editor, publisher,
proprietor, with a career that includes regional as well as metropolitan
dailies, various monthly magazines, annuals, and a stream of serialised
works in part issue, including his ‘Penny Poets’, Stead is a rich node for
new research.

- Stead’s non-conformist, Northern origins. Stead’s career, which includes
the editorship of the daily Northern Echo in Darlington for eight years in
the 1870s offers an opportunity to investigate the provincial press in the
late 19C and today.

- The continuing newspaper revolution. 2012 is the date when the British
Library Newspaper Library moves from Colindale to new, state of the art
reading rooms. What will the new digital archive mean for historical
research? And what will be the future of print journalism?

Conference Organisers:

Professor Laurel Brake (Birkbeck College): expert in 19C journalism, with
extensive publications relating to Stead’s career and milieu.

Ed King (British Library): Head of Newspaper Collections.

Professor Roger Luckhurst (Birkbeck College): expert in late 19C culture,
who has written on Stead’s interests in technology and the occult.

Dr James Mussell (University of Birmingham): author of work on 19C press and
science, and an editor of the Nineteenth-Century Serials Edition.
