Clare Walsh and Nicola Darwood / University of Bedfordshire

All children face conflict at some time in their lives and this conference explores the way in which this is represented in children's and young adult fiction.

Writers of children's and young adult fiction have never shied away from writing about conflict faced by children whether it's the conflict of a world war in The Silver Sword (1956) or inter-tribal conflict in East Africa in Little Soldier (1999) – both explored at last year's exhibition, 'Once Upon a Wartime', at the Imperial War Museum – generational conflict such as that experienced by Mossy Trotter (1967) or intra-racial conflict faced by the eponymous Rani and Sukh in Bali Rai's book (2004).

"Cultures in movement , 19th-21st centuries. The Stakes of Changing Cultures." 10-11 October 2013, La Rochelle, France.

Faculté de Lettres, Langues, Arts et Sciences Humaines (FLASH), Université de La Rochelle, France.

This conference is part of a larger research project, focusing on societies, exchanges and power in the Americas and the Asia / Pacific region, as well as questions of identity representation on an international scale. More precisely, it might be useful to re-think the very notion of culture by examining the experiences / situations and the representations of those who chose – or were forced – to change cultures. The primary goal is to study a cultural displacement within the geographical confines of the Americas / Asia Pacific region, in which the CRHIA (Research center, international and Atlantic history) specializes.

[UPDATE] The Politics of African Contemporary Art - submission deadline March 8, 2013

Thursday, January 31, 2013 - 4:38pm
Seismopolite Journal of Art and Politics

Recent approaches to African contemporary art often celebrate the advent of a global contemporary art scene in which they see an abolition of the provincialist and historicist concepts that were imposed by the West during the colonial period. One assumes that by taking part in new and post-historical/ post-national networks of exchange, facilitated by large-scale international exhibitions, biennials and fairs, artists can express themselves more truly as they are no longer doomed to wrestle with the notions of the pre-colonial/ colonial; to be measured against Western art-historical paradigms, or to be defined via enduring fictions about their own parochialism.
