Not Just a Pretty Tune: What Can Be Learned from Sheet Music (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: Not Just a Pretty Tune: What Can Be Learned from Sheet Music
Abstract: Sheet music is, of course, a vehicle for notating sound-for writing down a piece of music. But sheet music imprints tell us much more than how the music goes, and a careful comparison of details (in conjunction with other sources) often brings into view a hidden history that reveals much about the function of a song. This talk will focus on just one example: the 1917 song "After the War Is Over," in all (well, at least some) of its transformations.

Virtual Roundtable on “Description in the Novel” (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Virtual Roundtable on “Description in the Novel”
Author: Wai Chee Dimock
Author: Heather Love
Author: William Mills Todd III
Author: J. Keith Vincent
Author: Cynthia Wall
Abstract: This roundtable on description in the novel took place on May 3, 2016, at the Mahindra Humanities Center at Harvard University. Concluding the inaugural year of the Novel Theory Seminar, the roundtable featured presentations by Wai Chee Dimock, Heather Love, William Mills Todd III, J. Keith Vincent, and Cynthia Wall. To solicit brief position papers from each of these scholars, who represent five different areas of expertise within literary studies, we sent them the following prompt: Questions to consider might involve, for instance, the ways in which description has been pivotal for the novel as a literary form that aims to amalgamate fictionality with referentiality; how description is (or isn’t) surplus to the requirements of plot; how description serves to thicken and/or spatialize time while it suspends story; how it contributes to the modeling of fictional worlds; how it secures (or doesn’t) the boundaries between persons and things, characters and settings; and whether and how literary description differs from other descriptive modes and practices.

"Allegorical Punctuation," (Book Section)
Title: "Allegorical Punctuation,"
Author: Cynthia Wall
Editor: Jane Roberts
Editor: Trudi L. Darby
Abstract: This volume brings together a compendium of world-class research on English, from the Anglo-Saxons to Big Data. Selected from papers presented at the 2016 conference of the International Association of University Professors of English, the essays demonstrate the strength of English studies across the world, with contributions from scholars in China, Finland, Israel, Italy, Japan and Portugal, as well as from Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. The essays not only cross geographical boundaries, but also disciplinary ones. Contributors write about English through the prism of gender studies, history, linguistics, the digital humanities, theatre history and the history of the book; topics covered include mainstream writers such as Shakespeare and Milton, and shine light on less well-known topics such as Welsh poetry of the Wars of the Roses and captivity narratives in seventeenth-century North America. Bringing together perspectives on English from around the world, English Without Boundaries is a unique collection showing the energy and breadth of English studies today.
