This proposed panel seeks to examine how the art or literature of the historical avant-garde incorporated, disseminated, or rejected foreign bodies. How did the historical avant-garde, which depended upon techniques of alienation and irony, understand the 'foreign'? When considering Kurt Schwitters recuperating other people's junk or the Dada aesthetics of chance, which militated against the category of the 'foreign', it is clear that foreign bodies were an important component of avant-garde aesthetics.

Across disciplines academics and artists are researching and creating practices that are highly contextual (determined by the environment in which they are located), exploring ways of articulating specific environments, spaces or places. This conference examines a specific problematic that attends the dissemination of this work: how to engage with 'being there' when 'there' is not here?

Allusions and echoes – cultural recycling and recirculation

An international colloquium at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK, June 16-17, 2012

Deadline for paper/panel submissions is March 30, 2012.

The many ways in which stories are recirculated is astounding – from relatively straightforward retellings of fairy tales and classical myths, to feminist, queer, postcolonial or ecocritical subversions of central themes, to fan fiction's adaptations of beloved characters and story worlds.

In the Myths and Fairy Tales Area, panels are now forming on topics related to all areas of myth and fairy tale and their connections to popular culture. To participate in this area, you do not need to present on both myths and fairy tales (one or the other is perfectly fine), but we have seen that bringing both genre categories into conversation has led to extremely valuable and stimulating conversations.

Call for Papers

Mapping the field of the erotic is a complex and frustrating endeavour; as something which permeates lived experience, interpersonal relationships, intellectual reflection, aesthetic tastes and sensibilities, the erotic is clearly multi-layered and requires a plethora of approaches, insights and perspectives if we are to better to understand, appreciate and define it.
