Call for Papers

What role is left for the artist, the scholar, the self-reliant individual?

ULICES Research Group 3 on American Studies, “Interfacing Cultures and Identities,” wishes to reassess and update critically the work of Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882), seeking out new ways of responding to his call. His critique of convention, whether literary, religious or social, is an enduring legacy for the engaged citizen and the troubled artist and/or scholar alike, providing ample ground for reflection and discussion in this day and age. Emerson, “voice oracular,” father of American letters, may help us question and act upon today’s conundrums of moral relativism, ecological incertitude, inordinate individualism and societal indifference, as we search for readings and inscriptions of our human nature in its (un)sustainable interaction with the environment.

We invite up to 300-word abstracts for our conference panels and roundtables.
