The International Conference “Representations of Hostile Spaces in Literature and the Arts: Images and Metaphors” sets out to study works of literature, cinema, music and the visual arts related to hostile spaces and the images and metaphors derived from them in literature and the arts.

This interdisciplinary conference intends to be a meeting point for specialists in literature and different arts in order to foster debate around the artistic representations of hostile spaces in the modern world. Thus, we propose new approaches to a subject that has great impact on the cultural sphere with a special emphasis on literature, the arts and architecture.

Deadline Extended! Word Hoard - Issue 6 - Hangover

Word Hoard
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 20, 2017

Word Hoard is currently soliciting articles, essays, interviews, poetry, fiction, creative pieces, and other publishable works on the theme of HANGOVER.

How do you prepare for a hangover? You can’t. Though folk and faux-scientific remedies abound, you can neither predict nor control what comes after celebration, outburst, exertion, or indulgence. A hangover reaches its tortuous apex when intoxicant levels return to zero, when necessary recovery and bare survival become the consequences of excess. How does one begin to cope, to clean up? How does one think through, and despite, one’s bodily timeline? What of the past still saturates the present?
