The picture as a representation constitutes the medium/message to communicate/ establish the truth. As a fragment of memory and testimony that the Arts convey from painting to sculpture, the portrait is associated with the concepts of similarity, materiality, and presence configuring, as well, an order. From the rescue of oblivion and death to the legitimation of power, the portrait guarantees the perpetuity of the moment with its solemnity.

Over_Seas: Melville, Whitman, and All the Intrepid Sailors

July 3-5, 2019

School of Arts and Humanities of the University of Lisbon

 

Herman Melville (1819-1891), sailor and writer, plowed the ocean as a tablet to be read, gazing at the white page where unfathomable characters surface to the eyes of the puzzled reader. “Captain” Walt Whitman (1819-1892), on the other hand, writing “in cabin’d ships at sea,” broke open and passed the divide between in- and out-of-doors, as he urged his book to “speed on.” Both were born 200 years ago.

 

Challenging Precarity

updated: 
Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 9:23am
Om Prakash Dwivedi/AURO University, Surat
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, October 31, 2018

This proposed international seminar aims to respond to the current state of world affairs: notably, the inherent ontological vulnerability of life and the economic, socially-conditioned precariousness of individuals, societies and populations, which have been heightened since the 2008 financial crisis. Caused by an economic shift in the labour market and global neoliberal capitalism, precarity has been increasing due to world-wide inequality as “more extensive and less visible patterns of global dispossession” and “relatively unstable and dispersed conditions of deprivation and insecurity” gain ground (During 2015). 

Postmodern and postcolonial intersections

updated: 
Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 9:22am
University of Gafsa, Tunisia
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 28, 2018

This study day aims to bring researchers together to debate the postmodern and postcolonial intersections in literary and cultural studies. Grounded in contemporary postmodern and postcolonial thematic and aesthetic concerns, the study day will attempt to explore the confluences of the two theoretical trends, the discursive spaces offered by the first to the second. In this regard, relations between the East and the West and how such relations are presented and re-represented in multifarious ways in the writing and re-writing of literary and cultural texts are investigated.

Shakespearean Translations – Translating Shakespeare

updated: 
Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 9:18am
Shakespeare Seminar 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 30, 2018

It is a critical commonplace that Shakespeare in many ways relied on and produced various forms of translations – translations of foreign words, translations of literary texts, translations from one medium into another, to name but a few. Over time, Shakespeare’s works themselves have become some of the most widely translated texts in world literature. As of today, his works have been translated into more than 100 languages. Moreover, his plays and poems have travelled across time and space, and they have been re-translated time and again in order to adapt them for contemporary audiences. More often than not, such translations also raise questions about the original works and their socio-cultural as well as literary contexts.

Survivor Stories: Challenging Our Rape Culture Together

 

In the last few months survivors’ efforts have been mobilized by efforts around the Me Too Movement, Time’s Up efforts, and, most recently, the Brett Kavanaugh appointment to the Supreme Court. Right now survivors’ voices are being heard at protest rallies, speak outs, and academic conferences across the country.

 

Special issue “American Literary Naturalism in the World”

updated: 
Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 9:12am
CR: The New Centennial Review (Michigan State UP)
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 30, 2018

Essays are invited for a forthcoming special issue of the CR on American literary naturalism in a global context. As Christopher Hill has argued in “The Travels of Naturalism and the Challenges of a World Literary History,” the history of nineteenth-century naturalist fiction points to disorderly patterns of circulation that suggest “multiple, overlapping histories, together forming a heterogeneous history on the scale of the planet.” Using the concept of “travel” as his point of reference, Hill sees naturalism as a paradigm for thinking about transnational literary, cultural, and economic transformations.

Mad, Bad, and Dangerous Texts:

Controversies in Reading, Writing, Editing, and Printing

 

Please circulate widely.

 

In addition to conveying controversial ideas, books themselves have both committed and inspired mad, bad, and dangerous behaviour. The production and consumption of printed matter can be subversive, destructive, or downright criminal. Studying books as material objects reveals controversies that are fascinating in their own right, regardless of the subject matter between their covers.
