This panel seeks to continue the fruitful dialogue about the intertwining of epic, romance and novel in Italian culture we started at the AAIS-CSIS 2017 Conference in Columbus, Ohio. In order to further the scholarship of Bakhtin, Jameson, Doody, and Fusillo among others, we welcome investigations of the widespread presence and reciprocal influence of these three literary forms in the Italian linguistic and cultural space from the Middle Ages to the present day. What motivates their contaminations? What emerges from the collisions of these different styles and worldviews within the Italian context?

In celebration of the life and works of the eminent scholar Pierre Coustillas (1930-2018), we invite contributions for proposed panel(s) on Coustillas, George Gissing, and their writing to the Annual Literary London Society Conference. This meeting will be held on 11-12 July 2019 at the Institute of English Studies in the University of London. Coustillas has had a profound influence on Gissing and nineteenth-century studies. From 1969 to April 2013, he edited The Gissing Newsletter and subsequently The Gissing Journal, the organ for Gissing studies. In 1997, Paul F. Mattheisen, Arthur C. Young, and Coustillas completed their landmark project: The Collected Letters of George Gissing.

World religions have long held pilgrimage as an important journey of the faithful. Today, however, there is an increasing number of non-religious, secular or spiritual pilgrims undertaking these journeys. The nearly 800 km-long Camino de Santiago is a popular destination for secular pilgrims travelling through France and across Northern Spain. Established as one of three principal Christian pilgrimage routes over 1,200 years ago, the Camino is experiencing increasing visitor numbers with over 300,000 undertaking the journey each year.

COMICS/FANDOM

University of Cologne, 28/03/2019 – 29/03/2019

 

Considering how crucially comic book marketing depends on loyal customers, especially fans, and to how great an extent the ever-expanding franchises surrounding Marvel’s or DC’s comic worlds rely on user participation and fandom, it seems striking that the connection between Comics Studies and Fan Studies has hardly been explored in any great detail so far.

Much attention has been given to recent American studies showing a dramatic increase in the numbers of those who distance themselves from religious affiliation. Here in Quebec, it is approximately 50 years since the Quiet Revolution, a political movement that wrested control over health and education from the Catholic Church to a secular government. Today in Montreal, fewer than 4% of the population regularly attends mass, a trend that echoes the situation in Europe (1).
