In Memoriam: Maurice Gonnaud

Maurice GONNAUD, who presided over the destinies of the French Association between 1973 and 1980, became the third president of EAAS, after A.N.J den Hollander and Harry C. Allen.

A highly principled scholar and citizen, a man of conviction, culture, measure and rectitude, generous with his time and dedicated to the joint cause of intellectual pursuit and European cooperation, he had studied classics before he turned to English at the end of the war, a legacy that shone through in his written prose and oral delivery, in his most urbane manners.

CFP: Special Issue of "Romantisme"

New Scales of Regionalist Writing (1820-1914). Special Issue of Romantisme (Spring 2018)

https://www.cairn.info/revue-romantisme.htm

Regionalism has long been a contested label. From its birth as "local color" at the end of the eighteenth-century to its resurgence in, and as, modernism at the turn into the twentieth-century, its defense and illustration of local customs, local dialects and of a particular sense of place has been read alternatively as a conservationist move, an "anti-modern" advocation of essentialist identities, as a capitalistic avatar of the commodification of particularities (Brodhead) and as deterritorialized critique or a radical attempt at deconstructing the norms of place, gender, and literary genres (Pryse and Fetterley).
