2020 marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Sir Walter Scott, a writer whose creativity affected the worlds of poetry and prose for generations.  He also played an important role in the study of government, justice, and historiography.  His writings was a primary source of operatic librettin in the 19th century, and his impact on the worlds of music, art, theatre, and jurisprudence lasted well into the 20th century.  In recent years, there has been a revival of interest in his work, and his birthday willl draw further attention to the creations of this polymath.

Day conference on Saturday 7 November, 2020
at Corpus Christi College, Oxford.

Humankind has ever been impressed by, and formed by, the natural world. The world’s beginning and end are a subject in numerous narratives. Ecocriticism addresses large scale concerns about anthropocene changes. In literary tradition there is a multiplicity of understandings, while Biblical religion has stated that God made both heaven and earth. 

Papers, which are also offered for publication as articles in The Glass, and eventually on the CLSG website, will have a reading time of about 20 minutes. The CLSG interest is in exploring Christian and Biblical themes in Literature.

BETWEEN THE WAVES: BRITISH WOMEN WRITERS 1930 TO 1960 REDUX

Fourth international conference at The University of Hull Friday 12thJune 2020

Co-organised by Dr Sue Kennedy and Professor Jane Thomas

This conference aims to rekindle the energy unleashed at the inaugural conference on British Women’s Writing 1930 to 1960: Revision, Revival, Rediscovery in 2016 at Hull University that was taken forward in conferences at Chichester University in 2017 and 2018. The fourth conference seeks to gather more research and discussion from scholars of women’s literature of this period and to continue the re-evaluation of women’s writing occupying a liminal place in ‘the canon’ of British literature as taught by the academy.

Vancouver, located on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations, has long been a site of occupation, exchange, defiance and resilience. From time immemorial, it has been a location of trade and traversal across coastal Indigenous communities of the Pacific and, in more recent centuries, a place where diverse cultures from across the world have encountered each other and interacted through colonial pathways and settlement. Vancouver is a site of Indigenous and international relationships. It is a site of resistance to uneven development, neoliberal markets, colonial laws, and to exclusion.

CFP: Special Issue of Philip Roth Studies-“Philip Roth’s Succès de Scandale”

updated: 
Thursday, January 30, 2020 - 1:21am
Philip Roth Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 1, 2020

Philip Roth Studies invites submissions for a special issue on the topic of "Philip Roth’s Succès de Scandale." Roth’s earliest short stories scandalized Jewish communities, and in 1969, the bestseller Portnoy’s Complaint proved even more shocking. Roth mocks American political scandal in Our Gang; connects sexual excess and artistic provocation in Sabbath’s Theater; and triangulates political correctness, public shaming, and sexual indiscretion in The Human Stain. Roth’s engagement with scandal extended beyond national boundaries, as evidenced by his efforts to illuminate the work of oppressed writers in 1970s Prague—where literature and art was considered to be politically scandalous by the totalitarian regime.

Playing Law: A Jurisprudence of Video Games and Virtual Realities

Friday, February 14, 2020

Law is the ultimate multiplayer role-playing game. Through law, individuals are characterised, subject-object relations are constructed and enforced, and concepts of worth and identity are founded. Playing Law seeks to showcase the power of play and the boundless potential of the video game as a medium capable of facilitating experiences which unlock the next level of jurisprudential evolution. This is not only true of games which require players to act as legal characters, but is true of all games which involve the player-avatar – a subject confined in a codified space. This edited collection seeks to explore the intersection between the coded realm of the video game and the equally codified space of law.

Sunday, March 22, 2020

Media have always been able to configure our sense of space. However, in recent years, technological development—which tends to affect the relationship between the individual and the environment more and more deeply—has been radically intensifying this process. More particularly, the spatial dimension has assumed a role of increasing importance in determining the subject’s activity and agency.
