Popular Culture and Politics’

 La Rochelle Université-Université de Reims

To be held at: La Rochelle University (France) from 11th to 13th December 2019

 

The ambition of this conference is to explore the close links, hidden or implicit, that exist between popular culture and politics. Indeed, politics may attempt to subvert popular culture, or may be an object of ridicule or praise in Popular Culture, and it would therefore be of great interest to investigate this research field, which is relatively unexplored in France and which mixes two sometimes contradictory and conflicting spheres.

Digital Humanities is an emerging field of study that makes an interface between the application of the digital tools and methods to the study of humanities. It’s an interdisciplinary field which utilizes the computational methods and techniques to make significant interventions in the study and research in humanities and social sciences.  In recent years, this interdisciplinary study has made remarkable changes in the tradition modes of research, and pedagogy and this has facilitated a kind of inquiry that has never been undertaken in the field of humanities.

Luis A. Iglesias, James Fenimore Cooper Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 10, 2020

Throughout James Fenimore Cooper’s prolific writing career, his novels and non-fictional works have engaged with and revealed the complicated cultural dialogues of Antebellum America. Rich in multicultural and racial exchanges, his works, from the sea and frontier novels to his travel writing and political narratives, give readers a broad view of the many layered cultural contacts of the period, revealing a nation in continual ethnic, racial, and social interchanges. We invite papers that explore the works of James Fenimore Cooper from the perspective of cultural exchange broadly defined.

Avoiding Clichés in Experiential Learning (NEMLA 2020 - Deadline Extended to Oct. 7)

Whether they take place during abroad programs or locally, experiential learning projects add an element of authenticity and unpredictability that is especially important and often missing from conventional language learning courses. However, despite our ongoing efforts to teach language and culture in innovative and exciting ways, these experiences outside of the classroom often rely on clichés and stereotypes that are no more enriching than the cultural content found in the average industrial textbook.

CALL FOR PAPERS | CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

 

Despite our constant unraveling, humans are bound to each other and are continually finding ways of becoming entangled with one another. Our platonic, romantic, and paternal bonds of love cause us to belong to each other. This fierce intimacy has the potential to stretch physical, emotional, and spiritual boundaries.

 

How do humans currently become entangled with each other? How do we love each other? Hate each other? Cooperate with one another? What connections are condemned and stigmatized? Should they be? How do our shared experiences enhance our individual perceptions?

“Transsexualité, transidentité: un tabou français?” (“Transsexuality, transidentity: a French taboo?[1]): such was the title chosen by the online French news magazine France Info for an article published in 2015 that discussed the lack of visibility trans(gender/sexual) people still experience in French society. Indeed, there has been an increasing visibility of trans individuals in film and TV in recent years.
