Anti-apartheid activist, Bishop Desmond Tutu, explained the African concept of “Ubuntu” in this way: “My humanity is caught up, is inextricably bound up, in what is yours.” If connection is a way of being human, our actions impact others – human, animal, nature – and return to us in ways we cannot predict. Exploring the interconnectedness of humanity, humaneness, and human rights through texts, contexts, and comparisons, we invite papers for the 50th Annual Texas Tech University Comparative Literature Symposium on April 6-7, 2018.

The International Gothic Association postgraduate blog is looking for bloggers and podcasters!  

 

If you are a graduate student working with any aspect of the Gothic, consider writing us a short blog post, or recording us a podcast. It could relate to your work, or any other Gothic tangent that has taken your interest. Blogs should be around 600 words; short, snappy and conversational, with the aim of sparking conversation within the IGA community. If you want to write a blog longer than 600 words, we would encourage you to split it into two or more parts, but these are supposed to be informal rather than articles or papers.

From E.T.A Hoffmann's Tales of Hoffmann and Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? to Isaac Asimov's I, Robot, Vernor Vinge's Rainbows End and Warren Ellis' Transmetropolitan authors have been exploring the human/machine interface since before the computer age. Today we stand on the threshold to the lab as the government contemplates microchipping all U.S. military personnel and office workers are already implanting themselves for convenience ala M.T. Anderson's Feed.
