[T]he principle which regulates the existing social relations between the two sexes—the legal subordination of one sex to the other—is wrong in itself, and now one of the chief hindrances to human improvement; [...] it ought to be replaced by a principle of perfect equality, admitting no power or privilege on the one side, nor disability on the other.

J.S. Mill, The Subjection of Women (1869), ch. 1§1

On occasion of 150 years since the publication of John Stuart Mill’s The Subjection of Women (1869), the Department of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Cyprus hosts a Symposium on 1-2 November 2019, in Nicosia, Cyprus and invites papers on:

‘History Repeats’

Historical Novel Society Australasia 2019 Conference

25-27 October 2019, Rydalmere Campus, Western Sydney University.

Academic Stream: Sunday 27 October

On the final day of the HNSA conference, we will bring together postgraduates, academics, and other interested scholars to consider the complexities of the genre of historical fiction and its readership. What counts as an historical novel is increasingly up for grabs: in terms of period (what counts as ‘the past’—and how past is past?), and the porosity of the boundaries of genre (viz. how historical is historical fantasy?).

Writing Space or the Space of Writing: the (non-)lieux of Francophone literatures

In Écrire l’espace, Marie-Claire Ropars-Wuilleumier wrote that “la notion d’espace littéraire implique une double équation, suivant laquelle la littérature, en son désœuvrement, relève de l’espace, en même temps que l’œuvre littéraire, de par la singularité de son écriture, devient apte à engendrer ce en quoi elle s’inscrit.” Fragmentary in its composition, the spatial metaphor of writing implies a certain ontological paradox: being engendered by the author’s enunciation, the text is at once situated within the spatial imaginary while tandemly being the cause of spatial genesis.
