deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 10, 2020

The relationship between the sciences and the humanities is one that is currently marked by tension. Often viewed as distinct in their approaches to collecting and creating data, the two fields rarely come together to combine methodologies and form what could be a powerful symbiosis of qualitative and quantitative research. For our 18th annual conference, the English Graduate Student Organization is especially interested in exploring the past, present, and future relationships between STEM and the humanities.

Cornell EGSO 2020 Conference: ProximityMarch 6th - 7th, 2020Call for Proposals:

As knowledge travels through time and space, proximity emerges as an increasingly important category for critical inquiry. How does our understanding of proximity change our intellectual landscape? What issues seem distant from us? Which objects, texts, or historical moments feel more proximate in the present? How does the idea of proximity shape our understanding of political, economic, ecological, and social issues? Whether addressing the position of the humanities with regard to geopolitical conflicts or the ways in which history becomes entangled with the present, matters of closeness and distance must be considered urgent intellectual problems.

Posthuman Praxis of ‘human’

 

In posthuman theory we do have an obligation, but it is never what we think it is, because the ethical event cannot be known in advance… Posthuman Ethics shows we cannot ‘do’ ethics, and evaluate whether something was as ethical or not as we would hope.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 2, 2020

After the success of the Folk Horror in the Twenty First Century conference hosted by Falmouth University, we are holding another related conference in 2020.

 

The present is dark. With the rise of right-wing populism, global migrations and immigrations, continued violence, abuse and crime, prejudice and intolerance, there is increasing anxiety about the future. The Earth itself is under threat from environmental catastrophe and a mass extinction event is anticipated. The collapse of society, morality, and the environment was often also feared in the past, particularly in Gothic, horror and dystopian fictions and texts. What were the monsters of the past? What are our monsters now?
