What is the Human: Concepts and Controversies

SUNY Binghamton Comparative Literature Graduate Student Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 17, 2020

In the wake of environmental catastrophe, developing knowledge on animal and artificial intelligences, and the living legacy of coloniality, we are once again faced with these eternally recurring questions: What is the human? What is beyond the human? What are the consequences of shifting conceptualizations of the human? Many schools of thought examining eco-criticism, posthumanism, post-colonialism, and more now confront these previously established boundaries, interrogating the ways in which our construction of ‘the human’ and consciousness has left us blind to other agencies and existences in the world.

Death - A Graduate Student Conference

Death casts a long shadow.  Its significance is not merely qua biological event, but as something that compels a response from us throught out lives.  Our responses have varied widely, according to what death is taken to be and which deaths (e.g., animal, environmental, that of others, one's own) are taken to be relevant.  Mourning rites, martyrdom, and philosophical consolation: the centrality of these and other such responses within religious forms of life attests to the power and productivity of death as a feature of being mortal.

(Im)possibility marks a limit of available information, a threshold of representation, a cessation of action. Thinking at the limits of the possible gives rise to a specific set of issues: how might we articulate that which cannot be said? How might we orient ourselves toward that for which no available theory or representation is adequate?

Theories and Strategies for Teaching Creative Writing Online Edited Collection
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 1, 2019

To meet the needs of the growing body of online students, online pedagogy scholars persist in their efforts to ensure online education is as vibrant and effective as its onsite counterpart, if not more so. However, scholarship focusing on teaching creative writing, specifically, online is limited. As Bronwyn T. Williams rightfully points out, “the scholarship in creative writing pedagogy remains remarkably unengaged with digital technologies” (247). Given the youthfulness of creative writing scholarship, particularly when compared to other work that has taken the forefront in English studies, it is fair to assume that creative writing scholarship might be too limited at the present to include online education perhaps as it should.

deadline for submissions:

Vampires are a phenomenon that have captivated humans since ancient times, and continue to globally fascinate different target audiences. From vampires in early Chinese traditions to their depiction in early poems such as “The Vampire” by Heinrich August Ossenfelder, to Lord Byron’s “The Vampyre”, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, to vampires in more recent TV series and movies, this creature has not only evoked fear and horror but has also embodied both anxieties as well as desires of the culture and time in which it was created. Consequently, as vampire narratives today have started to go beyond the realms of horror, sometimes even turning the vampire into romantic heroes, they bring new insights to current issues across various fields.

An I for an Eye: Poetry in a World of Images, 20 and 21st centuries

Universidad Complutense, Madrid, 14-16 October 2020

The fruitful intersections between the word and the image have long fascinated poets and artists alike. From the early days of the avant-garde, imagism, simultaneism, vorticism, futurism, surrealism, and concrete poetry, among other trends, fully engaged with the rich and inexhaustible play between language and image. In their aesthetic, epistemic and creative dimensions, they paved the way for the Age of the World Picture.

'Making connections: women’s writing 1918-1939' is a one-day conference which will be held at the University of Bedfordshire (Bedford campus) on 6th June 2020. 

The interwar period was a time of experimentation in form, but also a time when networks enabled new writers to form connections with each other and with the publishing community.  This conference will focus on those networks, both formal and informal, between writers and writers, and with publishers, film makers, and literary, political and artistic movements. 

Abstracts are invited for papers on women writers from the UK, from Europe and across the world who were writing and publishing between 1918 and 1939.

 Insecure, Awkward, and Winning: Intersectionality of Race, Gender, and Sexuality in the Works of Issa Rae

 

Edited by: Adria Y. Goldman, Ph.D., Joanna L. Jenkins, Ph.D., Andre Nicholson, Ph.D. and LaRonda Sanders-Senu, Ph.D.

 

“I was like, ‘Yo is something wrong with me? That the whole society seems to think that people like me don’t exist?’ And part of what inspired me, was this deep desire that before I died, I would make some mirrors so that kids like me might see themselves reflected back and might not feel so monstrous for it.”

From Tita Chico’s The Experimental Imagination (2019), Karen Bloom Gevirtz’s Women, the Novel, and Natural Philosophy (2014), and Dana Jalobeanu’s “Disciplining Experience” (2014), recent criticism has disrupted the notion of objectivity and detached or modest witnessing that is typically associated with the scientific method and that was put forth by seventeenth- and eighteenth-century natural philosophers, themselves. This panel seeks to explore the connections between seventeenth- and eighteenth-century science and literature by paying particular attention to the role embodiment—broadly construed as corporeality, experientiality, materiality, and/or subject-position—played in both.

As the popularity of mythical creatures in films and literature grows, there is one creature that remains prominent: the dragon. Dragons have become most visible recently in the cinematic versions of The Hobbit and in George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones Series). However, there are other films, such as Dragonslayer (1981), Reign of Fire (2002), Dragonheart (1996), and the How to Train Your Dragon series (2010-2019), and numerous adult and children’s literature series that feature dragons.
