CLASH Conference (Cultural, Literary and Social Hybridity)

Postgraduate International Conference: "Worlds colide – connections/divisions /dialogues between cultures" 7th-8th December 2012.

The first decade of the twenty-first century, being already over, has proved stimulating for the development of cultural studies. Due to its growing popularity among researchers, this interdisciplinary project will investigate humanities through the perspective of current cultural theories. The conference also seeks to consider and promote the newest perspectives on literature and culture as well as it will try to find areas common for different cultures as reflected in their works or those which make a given society's experience exceptional.

There is little doubt as to the importance that H.P. Lovecraft has played in the development of American horror. Additionally, the pulp magazine Weird Tales, which published much of Lovecraft's fiction, is also consistently recognized as a seminal publication for eerie and horrific texts. With these two givens in mind, we are actively looking for paper proposals that explore the way that Lovecraft and/or Weird Tales helped construct the American horror canon or the American horrific aesthetic. Papers will be presented at the College of St. Joseph's popular culture conference, held October 26-27th [we are hosting the conference in October to help break up the conference jam that happens over Winter and Spring recess].

NEASECS 2012 Wesleyan University, CT: The Courtesan-Celebrity

This panel invites papers that explore the period's textual engagement with female notoriety. Defoe's Roxana (1724), for example, follows the earlier tradition of the whore biography, reimagined as a spiritual autobiography. These "histories" of whores, written about and by women from both poor and privileged families, are unsparing in their social critique; these women's grievances include the lack of proper education for girls, abuse, poverty, incest, and sexual predation. Yet, a few "high-profile" courtesan-celebrities like Nell Gwynn and Kitty Fisher relished the limelight, and whose lives became popular and profitable subjects in the print market.
