CFP: “Devouring: Food, Drink and the Written Word, 1800-1945,” U of Warwick (March 2014)

Devouring: Food, Drink and the Written Word, 1800-1945

 

Saturday 8th March 2014, University of Warwick


Keynote speakers: 

Professor Nicola Humble (University of Roehampton) 

Dr Margaret Beetham (University of Salford)


CALL FOR PAPERS

This one day interdisciplinary conference will explore the place of food, drink and acts of consumption within the textual culture of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The years 1800-1945 are marked by food adulteration scandals, the growth of the temperance movement, and significant reforms in the regulation and legislation of food standards, as well as the influence of the colonies on British cuisine and a relationship with food and drink made increasingly complex by wartime paucity and rationing. These changes are both precipitated and responded to in a vast array of textual forms, including periodicals, the press, recipe books, household management manuals, propaganda, literature and poetry. This conference will therefore engage with the intersections of food/drink cultures and the written word.


We are seeking papers which explore how food and drink were written, experienced and imagined during the period: as a commodity, a luxury item, a source of poison or nutrition, in its abundance or in short supply. We hope to attract all researchers who have an interest in the culinary cultures of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, including those working in the histories of medicine, art and food, as well as anthropologists, historians of the nineteenth century and war years, and those working in literary studies. By bringing together scholars from many disciplines, we hope to provide a space in which to open up dialogue about nineteenth and early twentieth century narratives of eating, drinking, consuming, and their worth, and to provide a timely examination of our relationship with food and drink at a moment when economic and ecological pressures herald a re-appropriation of the values of wartime thrift and Victorian domestic economy.


Possible topics might include, but are not limited to, the following:


  • Representations of food and drink in specific texts and their wider implications.
  • Cultures of eating, drinking and cooking.
  • Social histories of food and drink.
  • The uses of food and drink in the articulation (or challenging) of community, nation or empire.
  • Food or drink as metaphor/trope/structural device.
  • The relationship(s) between reading and eating or drinking.
  • The role of food and drink in cultural constructions of domestic space.
  • Perspectives from ‘fat studies’/‘fat feminism’.
  • Gendered practices of food and drink consumption.
  • Food and drink in medical/psychiatric discourse: alcoholism, eating disorders, compulsive behaviour.
  • The cultural legacies and/or persistence of Victorian and early twentieth century cultural imaging of food and drink.
  • Recipe books, household management manuals and aspirational food.
  • The narrating of gluttony or hunger.
  • Textual representations of farms, breweries, pubs and restaurants.

Applicants should note that papers may also be considered for inclusion in a possible publication resulting from the conference.


Abstracts of no more than 300 words, accompanied by a brief biographical note of no more than 100 words, should be sent to devouring2014@gmail.com by 31st October 2013.


This conference is being organised by Mary Addyman, Laura Wood and Christopher Yiannitsaros (University of Warwick).

CFP: “William Blake’s Gothic Sensibility,” Special Issue of Gothic Studies

CALL FOR PAPERS

Special Issue of Gothic Studies:

“Embodiments of Horror: William Blake’s Gothic Sensibility”   

Guest Editors: Dr. Christopher Bundock (Huron College) and Elizabeth Effinger (Western).

Within the frame of the late eighteenth-century Gothic revival, this special issue of Gothic Studies explores the relationship between English poet and engraver William Blake and particularly disruptive affective intensities expressed at the level of image, text, and critical reception as well as their extension into contemporary adaptations. While a critical body of work exists on the relationship between Blake and the Gothic broadly—and in spite of an obvious fascination with a nexus of aesthetic categories such as the grotesque, perverse, and macabre—Blake’s focus on affects like physical disgust and horror, specifically, have garnered little sustained critical attention. This special issue seeks to redress this gap by opening up a dialogue between Blake and his gothic sensibility that centers on the affective, aesthetic, and philosophical implications of a physical body and sensorium that turns against itself.

Registering the contestation between introjection and expulsion, the abject – Kristeva’s term for a “massive and sudden emergence of uncanniness, which […] now harries me as radically separate, loathsome” (2) – is frequently figured in Blake as a monstrous Polypus, organic life in its merely vegetative, abhorrent state. Other examples of Blake’s “body horror” appear in the body turned inside out, revealing organs “Dim & glutinous as the white Polypus,” an uncanny “Fibrous Vegetation” that seems less like animating flesh than the binding vines that tie spirit with “living fibres down into the Sea of Time & Space growing / A self-devouring monstrous Human Death” (Los 4.66; Milton 24.37, 34.25-6). Rending apart the coherence of representation to expose “what I permanently thrust aside in order to live” (Kristeva 3), Blake’s revulsion stems –perversely enough—from a willingness to peer into the abyss of origination and expose art’s always fragile constitution as an invitation for revision, transformation, and rebirth. But how precisely does this affirmative attitude toward subjective and artistic regeneration square with Blake’s tortured affect, especially when this follows from a desire to transcend the physical body, the very matrix of sensibility? If Blake embodies horror, he is also horrified by the body’s limitations. How, then, does art—particularly Blake’s own art—respond to this problem? How does he make new kinds of bodies to embody desires differently?

We are particularly interested in papers that consider the impact this “thrust[ing] aside” by and of the body has for Blake’s thought and art. What is the work of horror in Blake? What, if any, generative potential is there in the restlessness of Blake’s tortured, gothic bodies? What is the cost of Blake’s investment in horror as a privileged affect? Does Blake’s appeal to horror and the Gothic challenge or render counterfeit his humanism? How does Blake’s revisioning of the body as an intensive site of horror invite new modes of thinking about the human? How do the horrors of Blake’s material bodies (dis)figure or embody the horrors of larger discursive bodies?

While this collection follows in the spirit of recent critical projects such as Blake 2.0 (Palgrave 2012) and Blake, Modernity and Popular Culture (Palgrave 2007) – important studies that foreground the continuing relevance of Blake in contemporary culture – it also distinguishes itself by interrogating the particular affinities between Blake and the embodied experiences of revulsion, abjection, and horror. Given this topic especially, Blake’s illustrations may well play a central role in some contributions. And we do hope to be able to reproduce a certain number of his visual artworks. Nevertheless, we ask that contributors use their best judgement and include images only if they come in for substantial, sustained analysis and are necessary for advancing the paper’s argument.

This collection is interested in papers that explore any aspects Blake’s embodied affects and affects of embodiment, and especially those dimensions wherein the body and affect clash. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

·       Deleuze and the Affect of Terror or Horror

·       Execrable Topi: Vacuum, Or-Ulro, Satan’s Mills

·       Horrors of abstraction

·       Embodiment, disembodiment, reembodiment

·       Birth, re-birth, and the labour of creation

·       Printing in the Infernal Method

·       The Pleasures of Pain: masochism, perversion

·       Transgression and anti-economy

·       Horror and Function

·       The Instruments of Terror

·       Revulsion’s limits, borders, or ends

·       Blake’s images as “dark visions of torment”

·       The image and Evil

·       Specters, ghosts, and darkness visible

·       Subject, Object, Abject


We invite contributions from academics, professionals, artists, and those with a scholarly interest in Blake. All relevant material will be considered. We welcome papers from multidisciplinary perspectives.

Including notes, articles should be between 4000 and 9000 words in length. Potential contributors should send abstracts (500-750 words) to both Dr. Christopher Bundock (cbundock@gmail.com) and Elizabeth Effinger (eeffinge@uwo.ca) by 1 October, 2013. All submissions should be in English and adhere to the “Guidelines on Preparing and Submitting an Article for Gothic Studies


New Issue of 19: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Long Nineteenth Century on W.T. Stead

New Issue of 19: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Long Nineteenth Century

The new issue of 19: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Long Nineteenth Century is now available at http://19.bbk.ac.uk/index.php/19/issue/view/83

When W. T. Stead died on the Titanic 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 special issue of 19, guest edited by Laurel Brake and James Mussell, celebrates Stead’s life and legacy in all its diversity 101 years on.

There will be a panel session and reception to mark the publication of this issue at the British Library, 14 May 2013, 18:30-20:00. Speakers will be Kate Campbell, Rohan McWilliam, and Tony Nicholson. Attendance is free but attendees must register. Further details here: http://www.bl.uk/whatson/events/event145276.html

Interdisciplinary postgraduate conference – call for papers

How did the rapid period of industrialisation in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries help to shape societies and lifestyles in the West? What types of social changes, movements and developments characterise this time period? This interdisciplinary postgraduate conference, in affiliation with the Centre for the Study of Cultural Modernity and hosted by the College of Arts and Law, seeks to explore the various ways in which this century was one of ‘motion’, in every sense of the word. The conference title seeks to encapsulate both the uncertainty and upheaval of this period as well as the physical and cultural movements that occurred at this time. We invite papers addressing these themes from postgraduate researchers and early-career academics working on this period from a variety of backgrounds.

Topics could include, but are not limited to:

Cultural or social movements

  • political movements
  • the Women’s Movement
  • arts movements (musical, artistic, literary)
  • religious and philosophical
  • popular cultural trends (food, fashion, advertising)

Physical movements

  • mass movement of people (mobilisation of soldiers, migration from towns to cities)
  • transatlantic and inter-continental travel (including emigration and immigration)
  • leisure and tourism
  • transport
  • changing landscapes

Development and progress

  • media (cinema, audio technology and radio, print media)
  • scientific and medical advances
  • technology
  • economic growth and/or recession
  • development of nationhood

These headings are suggestions only; we welcome proposals exploring crossovers between these topics, or addressing them from interdisciplinary perspectives. Abstracts of 250-300 words for 20 minute papers along with a short biographical note of no more than 50 words should be sent to pgculturalmodernity@contacts.bham.ac.uk by the 17th May 2013. We welcome any questions that you may have; please do not hesitate to contact us at the above address.
