CFP: [Collections] The Artist as Public Intellectual

Bernard Schweizer

Submissions are sought for a special issue of Studies in the Humanities titled “The Artist as Public
Intellectual: a Fresh Look at Twentieth-Century’s ‘Unacknowledged Legislators’.” This special issue
revisits Percy B. Shelley’s claim that artists are the unacknowledged legislators of the world; using

Is There a Human in this Text? Rethinking Literature and Humanism

A one-day conference hosted by De Montfort University, Leicester, UK
July 11, 2008

• Does English need re-humanising? What form might this take?
• Has English ever entirely broken away from its humanist roots?
• Have specialisation, historicism and the reduction of education to
skills killed off literature’s existential significance?
• Is the traditional vocabulary of humanism exhausted and in need of
reinvention?
