Recent reports reveal that the U.S. has the highest rate of maternal deaths in the developed world, particularly among low-income, rural, and African American women (NPR, 2017). Changes to the Supreme Court endanger the viability of Roe v. Wade. In Iowa, a judge threatens to ban nearly all abortions once a fetal heartbeat can be detected (NPR, 2018). In Wisconsin, the state legislature rejects the repeal of the “cocaine mom law,” which opponents argue forces undue medical care on pregnant women (Reuters, 2017). These reproductive threats are not limited to only women’s rights.

The University of British Columbia’s annual English Graduate Conference cordially invites submissions under the themes of Disruption, Resistance, and Resilience.

In the wake of years of political, social, and ecological crises that have disrupted, disoriented, and displaced populations across the globe, modes of resistance and resilience have emerged to confront the disarray. From the rise of Trump and “fake news” to the latest IPCC report on the impending irrevocability of climate change, humanities studies and art practices have stepped up to the challenge to revolutionize their age-old roles of disruption and resilience-making on a much larger global stage.

MLA 2020: "Early Modern Resilience: Shakespeare and Beyond," Special Session

How does early modern literature portray the resilience of women or other marginalized groups in times of crisis? What strength or power is found in resilience? Is resilience similar to #resist? How can we understand resilience within feminist criticism, critical race theory, postcolonialism, or other methodologies? How does resilience change our reading (or performance) of a text, and can we begin to theorize the way resilience functions in the early modern world? All texts from the early modern world and all methodologies welcome.

Friday, February 15, 2019

The past 20 years have seen the rise of the once-humble television series to new heights of popular success and critical estimation. Given this rise, this book asks if and how contemporary scripted television and web series can be read as a form of literature. While Jason Mittel and others have made a convincing case that complex contemporary TV series constitute a unique art form and should be described on their own terms, there can be equally little doubt that TV series are closely related to various forms of literature, most obviously perhaps drama and the novel, but also, arguably, poetry.

Have you taught a place-based course in literature, history, American studies, or the humanities more generally?

The Matter of the Elgin Marbles: Romantic Materiality

The Parthenon Sculptures have long been a source of disparagement and fascination, especially since their arrival in London as early as 1803. Prior to that year, Thomas Bruce, seventh Earl of Elgin, procured a collection now housed in the British Museum as the Elgin Marbles, intensifying a transformation in which materiality of the marbles has been infused with seemingly vital force through an after-life of aesthetic representation. Whether through drawings, paintings, or poetry, the Elgin Marbles as objects have animated their subjects—pensive in gaze—to motivate, in effect, proliferation through aesthetic production.

[Hong Kong Studies Symposium] The Neighbourhood—Call for Abstracts While the word “community” is more often than not suffused with a benevolent glow, connoting the virtues purportedly associated with groups of people—shared values and heritage, constancy and solidarity—“neighbourhood” is a term that has a more ambiguous, even troublesome, valency. Neighbourhoods, depending on one’s point of view, can be good or bad, welcoming or hostile, safe or dangerous, dull or vibrant.

Monsters
An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference

Saturday 31st August 2019 - Sunday 1st September 2019
Lisbon, Portugal

This inclusive interdisciplinary conference seeks to investigate and explore the enduring influence and imagery of monsters and the monstrous on human culture throughout history. In particular, the project will have a dual focus with the intention of examining specific ‘monsters’ as well as assessing the role, function and consequences of persons, actions or events identified as ‘monstrous’. The history and contemporary cultural influences of monsters and monstrous metaphors will also be examined with a view to forming a selective publication to engender further collaboration and discussion.

Once Upon a Time There Was a Virus....: Storytelling, Health and Illness
Saturday 31st August - Sunday 1st September 2019
Lisbon, Portugal

Throughout history, people have felt a need to tell each other stories about the ordinary as well as the surprising experiences of being alive, particularly in relation to health, well-being, illness, disease and death. Telling stories was – and still is – a way of recording and grappling with the origins, causes and prevention of illnesses and disease that surrounded them in everyday life.
