BETWEEN THE WAVES: BRITISH WOMEN WRITERS 1930 TO 1960 REDUX

Fourth international conference at The University of Hull Friday 12thJune 2020

Co-organised by Dr Sue Kennedy and Professor Jane Thomas

This conference aims to rekindle the energy unleashed at the inaugural conference on British Women’s Writing 1930 to 1960: Revision, Revival, Rediscovery in 2016 at Hull University that was taken forward in conferences at Chichester University in 2017 and 2018. The fourth conference seeks to gather more research and discussion from scholars of women’s literature of this period and to continue the re-evaluation of women’s writing occupying a liminal place in ‘the canon’ of British literature as taught by the academy.

Vancouver, located on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations, has long been a site of occupation, exchange, defiance and resilience. From time immemorial, it has been a location of trade and traversal across coastal Indigenous communities of the Pacific and, in more recent centuries, a place where diverse cultures from across the world have encountered each other and interacted through colonial pathways and settlement. Vancouver is a site of Indigenous and international relationships. It is a site of resistance to uneven development, neoliberal markets, colonial laws, and to exclusion.

CFP: Special Issue of Philip Roth Studies-“Philip Roth’s Succès de Scandale”

updated: 
Thursday, January 30, 2020 - 1:21am
Philip Roth Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 1, 2020

Philip Roth Studies invites submissions for a special issue on the topic of "Philip Roth’s Succès de Scandale." Roth’s earliest short stories scandalized Jewish communities, and in 1969, the bestseller Portnoy’s Complaint proved even more shocking. Roth mocks American political scandal in Our Gang; connects sexual excess and artistic provocation in Sabbath’s Theater; and triangulates political correctness, public shaming, and sexual indiscretion in The Human Stain. Roth’s engagement with scandal extended beyond national boundaries, as evidenced by his efforts to illuminate the work of oppressed writers in 1970s Prague—where literature and art was considered to be politically scandalous by the totalitarian regime.

Playing Law: A Jurisprudence of Video Games and Virtual Realities

Dale Mitchell

Friday, February 14, 2020

Law is the ultimate multiplayer role-playing game. Through law, individuals are characterised, subject-object relations are constructed and enforced, and concepts of worth and identity are founded. Playing Law seeks to showcase the power of play and the boundless potential of the video game as a medium capable of facilitating experiences which unlock the next level of jurisprudential evolution. This is not only true of games which require players to act as legal characters, but is true of all games which involve the player-avatar – a subject confined in a codified space. This edited collection seeks to explore the intersection between the coded realm of the video game and the equally codified space of law.
