01/07/2018 – CFP “Walt Whitman and William Blake”

For almost two centuries, poets and critics, from Algernon Swinburne to Hart Crane, Allen Ginsberg, and Harold Bloom, have recognized William Blake and Walt Whitman as kindred poets and visionaries, fellow mystics, allied writers in the prophetic tradition. […] However, only a few essays on Blake and Whitman have been published over the past 30 years. This collection of essays aims to advance inquiry into Blake and Whitman’s likenesses beyond impressionism and beyond the terms—prophecy, mysticism, and (to a lesser extent) influence– that have typically framed the rare critical considerations of the two poets in tandem.

15/11/2018 – CFP: 14th SAAS Conference “The Image and the Word: Interactions between American Literature, Media, Visual Arts and Film”

14th SAAS Conference

“The Image and the Word: Interactions between American Literature, Media, Visual Arts and Film”

University of Salamanca (Spain)

10-12 April, 2019

Word and image play an important role in perception. Under the landslide of innovation in the domain of communication and representation in the last half-century, the visual turn of culture enhanced by the postmodern digital turn has fundamentally changed traditional means of understanding culture and the expression of literature, image, film, and photography. Various philosophers and theoreticians, such as James Heffernan, Wendy Steiner, Barbara Stafford, W.J.T. Mitchell, have analyzed the “pictorial turn” of our present, claiming that the long dominance of the written book is giving way to the visual image —cinema, video, photography, and other forms of pictorial and digital representation.
