CFP: [Ethnic] The Celtic Periphery in the Eighteenth Century

"The Celtic Periphery in the Eighteenth Century," ASECS, Richmond
Virginia, March 26-29, 2009

Was there a coherent Celtic periphery in the eighteenth century? If so,
in what was its unity based--language, race, culture, resistance to
Anglicization, or something else? How do the triangulated relations
between Ireland, Scotland, and England challenge traditional models of
the nation-state? How might the differences between Ireland’s and
Scotland’s eighteenth-century connections to England, and to Great
Britain’s growing empire, illuminate or trouble the distinctions between
internal colonialism, settler colonialism, and other forms of
imperialism?

CFP: [Medieval] (Kzoo): Anglo-Saxon Matter and Materialism

updated: 
Thursday, July 31, 2008 - 3:58pm
Johanna Kramer

For this session, we are interested in investigating Anglo-Saxon definitions
and understanding of materiality, in particular the materiality of
immaterial concepts. While much recent scholarship has focused on the
material culture of Anglo-Saxon England, exploring ideas such as the
significance of religious objects or the construction of social spaces,
materiality as a signifier for spiritual principles or theological concepts
has received much less attention. Anglo-Saxons imagined the physical
universe and the process of creation in intensely material terms, as is
reflected in OE words like gesceaft (creation, element) and andweorc
(matter, substance, material). At the same time, they did not strictly

IDKE.X ROUNDTRIP HOME: Cultural Depots and Queer Destinations

More than a decade of grassroots networking will have passed when IDKE.X
ROUNDTRIP HOME kicks off its first event on October 16, 2008. The
original purpose of the IDKE conference was a critical examination and
insider’s view on female-to-male (FTM) drag as a subculture. Examining the
intersections and junctures of every day lived experience pushed the
original organizers to create an event dedicated to scrutinizing these
moments of connection and disconnection.
