Birth, Death, and Rebirth: (Re-)Generation as Text
Dates: 8–10 June, 2017
Centuries ago, Aristotle fashioned a term that brought literature and psychology face to face: catharsis (psychological or mental purification of the feelings). From that time onwards, literature and human psyche have been correlated either by various writers, philosophers, critics, or by means of several techniques or movements. Not only was it tragedy that combined the elements of psychology with literary production, it was also novel, poetry, short story and even some psychoanalytical theories that brought psyche and literature together.
Call for paper: Socrates Special Issue Vol. 4 No. 4 (2016) Issue - December

Submissions sought for new editied collection Surveiallance, Race, Culture
Drawing on huge interest in the upcoming collection Spaces of Surveillance: States and Selves which is currently in press (Palgrave Macmillan) this new collection seeks to merge cultural explorations of surveillance with the issue of race. We wish to examine how culture produces or reproduces power relations via the surveillant technologies which have captured the cultural imagination. Through a critical reading of contemporary and historic narratives of race and surveillance, we seek to illustrate the ongoing cultural fascination with technologies of control and surveillance.
