<[UPDATE]> < CFP: EXTENDED DEADLINE: Car Culture and the Road>

updated: 
Tuesday, December 6, 2011 - 3:32pm

< Car Culture and the Road is a growing area of cultural significance in our rapidly transforming global world. Both the car and the road conjure up ideas about freedom, mobility, geography, consumption, and the triumph of technology over nature. Images of car culture and/or the road evoke a powerful and potentially tense inquiry into the role of the car and the road in terms of nostalgia for an idyllic, and perhaps lost pastime, as well as a renewed excitement about the future of motorized transport (cars, motorcycles, scooters, etc.). In either case, we find both the car and the road as prominent figures in the construction of identity formation in a variety of media formats (film, TV, videogames, graphic novels, fiction).

North Carolina Colloquium in Medieval and Early Modern Studies

Keynote Speaker: Peter Lake, University Distinguished Professor of History, Professor of the History of Christianity, Divinity School, Vanderbilt University

The 12th annual North Carolina Colloquium in Medieval and Early Modern Studies invites graduate students to submit proposals that engage broadly with notions of knowledge--its transmission, translation and commodifcation in economies of power. We welcome interdisciplinary submissions ranging in historical focus from the 11th to the 17th century. Our topic is intended to be expansive rather than limiting, inviting notions of knowledge that work across the boundaries of scholastic and vernacular culture and embrace both elite and popular practices and forms of understanding.
