Eighteenth-Century Environmental Humanities: Edited Collection CFP

updated: 
Wednesday, October 23, 2019 - 3:27pm
Jeremy Chow/ Bucknell University
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 1, 2020

We invite abstracts for an interdisciplinary collection of essays that is oriented around the sheer diversity of Environmental Humanities (EH) work in the long eighteenth century. Our interdisciplinary focus seeks to honor connections and conversations within, around, and between disciplines. This collection evaluates how the emergence and necessity of EH scholarship is germane to conversations in the eighteenth century, and endeavors to weigh how EH might function as a discipline, theoretic, methodology, and/or pedagogical tool--as well as how the eighteenth century might legitimate, make blurry, or problematize these functions.

The Medieval Translator

Thursday, October 31, 2019

The conference will focus on linguistic fragmentation as a means of cultural inclusion. In the passage from late antiquity to the high Middle Ages, a number of written translations in various vernaculars and dialects already appear – suffice it to think of the first attempts at translating the Bible, of the effect of Carolingian culture, or of King Alfred’s cultural policy, aimed at making vernaculars the vehicle of faith and knowledge. As we move towards the late Middle Ages, translation becomes an essential instrument for the transmission of literature, religion and science. The proliferation of translations, through the linguistic fragmentation represented by target languages, allowed the transferral of texts to an ever-wider audience.

Historicizing Slashers

PCA/ACA National Conference

April 15-18, 2020

Philadelphia, PA, USA

https://pcaaca.org/

 

On the eve of Friday the 13th celebrating its 40th anniversary, the concept of the “slasher” and the “slasher film” remains a topic of debate and discourse among horror scholars and fear film aficionados.

Though theorized and analyzed consistently for the past 30 years, slasher films possess a complex history, one that contains controversy (such as graphic violence, misogyny and the promotion of seemingly socially conservative “morals”), a labyrinthine origin and genealogy as well as alternating and shifting periods of popularity.

An opening event launching the series will be followed by a one-day symposium to mark the anniversary of Varda’s passing, taking place at İstanbul Bilgi University, March 27-28, 2020
