Drain
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2017

What is a diagram? How do maps, charts, plans, DNA sequencing, weather mapping, computer glitches and Internet cartography blur the boundaries between ‘art’ and ‘information’? Drain calls for artworks, thought experiments, essays and reviews that explore how data has been weaved into artworks and in the other direction, artworks into data. How are surveillance, spying, data collection explored by artists?  Does Google Earth problematize artists’ relationships with space and mapping? Is there an algorithmic aesthetics?  What is at the source of the renewed artistic interest in Cybernetics?

This panel invites papers on representations of social transformation in the Marvel Universe to be presented at South Central MLA’s 2017 annual convention held October 5-8th in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Presenters should feel free to propose papers on a wide-range of topics. We are especially interested, however, in papers that explore the representation of trauma and/or violence as a necessary part of socially transformative practices. Proposed papers could consider, for instance, the trauma of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’s terrigenesis or how Luke Cage’s body—often riddled with bullets—offers a challenge to the “All Lives Matter” movement.

Elizabeth Bowen: A Revaluation, May 6th 2017

Recent years have seen a growing and sustained interest in the work of Elizabeth Bowen.  Her work can be read through a wide variety of literary approaches, and this has led to an expanding body of criticism.  No longer thought of as a writer on the margins of Bloomsbury, Bowen rightly occupies a central place in our understanding of both the twentieth century and twentieth-century literature. 

 

The aim of this conference is to continue the re-evaluation of Bowen’s body of work, and we welcome abstracts that will add to our understanding of both the writer and the novels, short stories and other prose she produced.

Uplandish: New Perspectives on Northern England’s ‘Wild’ Places (30th June 2017)

updated: 
Tuesday, January 3, 2017 - 5:56am
York St John University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 31, 2017

Few places in England are as closely associated with wilderness as the moors and fells north of the River Trent. Yet the iconography of this region occupies a central place in the country’s cultural geography, as attested by the many tourists who tramp across ‘Lakeland’ and ‘Brontë Country’ each year. This conference seeks to interrogate the mythologies of England’s northern uplands and to understand the ideological processes that have allowed its material reproduction, many of its less flattering significations and perhaps some of its political potential to remain hidden.
