10th International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities
14-17 June 2012
Centre Mont-Royal, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
The Conference will address a range of critically important themes in the various fields that make up the humanities today. Plenary speakers will include some of the world's leading thinkers in the humanities, as well as numerous paper, workshop and colloquium presentations by teachers and researchers.
Southern Cultures, the award-winning and peer-reviewed quarterly from UNC, would like to strongly encourage submissions for our sixth Music issue: http://www.SouthernCultures.org
We are a multidisciplinary journal, interested in all approaches and types of scholarship, and we pay our contributors. The deadline is March 5, 2012.
This teachers' workshop will focus on collaborative, student-driven learning and ways that we can get the students in our classes connected with one another to improve their learning experiences. We encourage proposals that make use of medieval and/or Renaissance texts as the focal point of the lessons presented. In place of "papers" to present, we are looking to solicit 3 or 4 mini-teaching demonstrations where presenters would provide a 10-15 minute mini-lesson on one collaborative learning approach that audience members and other participants could take back to use in their own classrooms. Additionally, these lesson plans may be considered for publication in the Forum journal or The Once and Future Classroom.
While this panel welcomes proposals related to any element of Robert Frost's career and poetry, it especially invites submissions addressing the ways in which Frost both invites and prevents sentimental responses to his works and life.
Deadline for 250 word proposals and brief C.V by January 15, 2012.
HOMO MYTHICUS – MYTHIC MODELS OF IDENTITY
The contemporary culture draws on the mythic on various levels in a variety of aspects. The multiformity of myth and its resistance to being defined make myth-related references both attractive and troublesome for researchers. Mythic elements in literary works and cultural artefacts often get degraded or trivialised; sometimes they are simply problematic. In modern culture and literature, myth seems to some extent to be living a life of its own. Avoiding ultimate interpretation and analysis and hiding in even the most obvious references, myth remains a realm open to explore.
