This session seeks papers on the relationship between literature and healing, broadly conceptualized.  As theories and practices such as catharsis and bibliotherapy suggest, literature has functioned, over the course of its history, as a source of healing in times of need; “We need elegies,” Countee Cullen writes in the closing line of a poem entitled “Threnody for a Brown Girl.”  The expositions on literature and healing date back to ancient times and continue up to the present:  Apollo is not only the god of poetry but also of medicine; Aristotle’s theory of catharsis portrays how tragedies allow readers to experience extremities in safety, as part of the purification of their soul; D.

Philip Larkin: Personality, Poetry, Prose.

13-14 June 2019, Hull History Centre, Hull, UK.

Co-convened by final-year ‘Larkin-focused’ PhD researchers, Rebecca Devine (University of Hull) and Kyra Piperides Jaques (University of York).

The past few years have been particularly exciting for the Larkin scholar. With Hull – the poet’s workplace and home of thirty years – selected as UK City of Culture 2017, this undoubtedly engendered a renewed interest in not only the work of Philip Larkin, but the life of the poet as well. We expect that this will only be amplified by the successive title being handed to Coventry, Larkin’s birthplace and childhood home.

Adaptation: In Service of Cinema or Novel?

Language, Literature, and Interdisciplinary Studies (LLIDS)
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Collaborations of cinema with other art forms open up myriad of issues like the medium’s ability to maintain fidelity to the original narrative, its transformation of the original narrative, or its desire to treat the original as only an occasion for a different narrative. Adaptation studies have, as yet, largely concentrated on studying films as derivatives of original works reinforcing Rabindranath Tagore’s observation that “[c]inema is still playing second fiddle to literature.” It is commonly viewed as a presumptuous palimpsest whose merit lies in its techniques of appropriation, intersection, and transformation of the source text.
