This edited collection seeks to publish recent scholarship on spaces of the cinematic house by film or screen studies scholars employing a range of critical methodologies. Currently we are inviting final contributions for a volume provisionally entitled Behind the Screen Door: Spaces of the Cinematic House, for which we are in discussions with Routledge. Essays should address one of the following spaces not already covered – the master bedroom, cellar, doors and windows, the study/library or corridors within the cinematic house, although other suggestions are welcome.

[UPDATE] Animate Objects, Inanimate Bodies - EXTENDED DEADLINE TUESDAY 10th of APRIL 2012

King's College London

King's College London Annual Postgraduate Conference

What separates the human body from the objects around it? Are objects merely inanimate, inorganic things that are designed and used by human bodies? Is it solely the human body that is the physical site or limit of the self? Is there a divide between the human body and the object in the first place?

We are looking for papers which examine the interactions (or lack thereof) between bodies and objects in literature. These interactions could suggest an impenetrable divide between the human body and the object, could question where the body ends and the object begins, or could reveal how bodies and objects inform one another.

International Journal of Innovation and Leadership in the Teaching of Humanities

The teaching of ancient languages and cultures has become increasingly marginalised within the linguistic studies in general, and university curricula in particular. In this issue, we will see at new ways how new teaching methodologies and technologies can be applied to this historical branch.

Among the questions addressed here are the contributions historical linguistic studies can make to both neighbouring and more remote academic disciplines, as well as to the general education and professional training of university students.
