This section of the academic journal “Sinestesieonline” is open to contributions about theatre and performing arts in all historical ages, forms and variations, in English, Italian and foreign languages.

“Il Parlaggio” is the name created by Gabriele d’Annunzio for the amphitheatre in Vittoriale – a place of empathy, a cradle of emotions, a crossroads of cultures, a connection between antiquity and contemporaneity, an emblem of the “neverending show”.

We are currently seeking chapter submissions for an edited volume that interrogates the representations of children and young people’s agency in popular culture.  When considering children and youth, acts of agency are inseparable from the heightened structures they are forced to work within and around.

Transformative Works and Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 1, 2017

Over the past five years, more and more English language transformative fandoms have gravitated to the social networking site Tumblr, moving from online communities such as LiveJournal, Dreamwidth, and Yahoo! Groups. Thus many fan communities have shifted organization structures to adapt to Tumblr’s multiple points of entry and seemingly anti-hierarchical framework. Some fans describe Tumblr as a fandom free-for-all without clear rules for engagement. Others describe this uncertain multiplicity as one of the platform’s strengths. Still others have pointed to Tumblr's comparatively more visual interface as enabling greater global participation in heretofore monolingual fandom spaces.

Space and Psyche in Contemporary Latinx/Latin American Culture (NeMLA Pittsburgh 2018)

This panel reflects on the relationship between space and psyche in contemporary Latinx and Latin American texts. With movement across the Americas in constant flux, Latin American and Latinx literatures offer insights into this border-crossing psyche, with recent novels depicting the diverse reactions subjects exhibit in forming, surviving, and thriving. For example, the heroine of Yuri Herrera’s Señales que precederán al fin del mundo (2011) comes to terms with her subjectivity in her journey north, while the journalist of Horacio Castellanos Moya’s Insensatez (2004) finds his conception of self shaken after his move.

Gender and Medieval Studies Conference 2018: Gender, Identity, Iconography

Corpus Christi College, Oxford, 

8th-10th January 2018

 

The glittering beauty of the Alfred Jewel, the rich illustration of the Lindisfarne Gospels, the dominating Great West Window of York Minster, the intricate embroidery of the Bayeux Tapestry, the luminous Maestà of Duccio, the opulent Oseberg ship burial, and the sophisticated imagery of the Ruthwell cross are all testament to the centrality of the visual to our understanding of a range of medieval cultures.

Sylvia Townsend Warner and Modernism Conference

Tuesday, January 30, 2018

Today, when political misinformation abounds, nationalism and Fascism have reappeared, and we find ourselves contending with ideology in simple, complex and covert forms, Sylvia Townsend Warner’s writing seems ever more relevant. In turns insightful, comic, cutting, and poignant, her texts ask what art is for, and how we might navigate personal relationships, social change, belief and the past. Warner has an acute sense of the relationship between material conditions and human consciousness, of place and the ordinary. This conference seeks papers that analyse her importance for studies of, among other possibilities, modernism, politics (specifically communism), gender and sexuality.

Gower and Temporalities

The Gower Project
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 19, 2017

When Gower says in the Vox Clamantis that the writings of the past provide examples for the future ("Scripture veteris capiunt exempla futuri") or when he envisions a statue of time made of the clay feet of the present and the golden head of the past, or when he mixes multiple temporalities together, such visions indicate not only that history has the capacity to repeat itself, but that the past and the future are implicated in the present moment. Such constructions of temporality challenge linear models based upon uninterrupted chronologies, diachronic progression, and narratives of continuity based upon heterosexual marriage, biological reproduction, and patrilineage.

Gower and Sound

Wednesday, July 19, 2017

In rhetorical repetitions that adorn the Confessio Amantis's plain style, in the many references to animal noises in the Visio Anglie, in the bird song punctuating the lovers' speeches in the Cinkante Balades and more, the fourteenth-century poet John Gower shapes sounds and encourages an aural reception of his trilingual corpus. Just as Gower often argues for the preservation of knowledge and philosophies developed in the classical world, so it can be maintained that the phonics of his verse preserve a literary ecology: one in which repetitions reverberate with both Ciceronian and sermonic orations, animal noises recall Aesop's fables, and bird song evokes Virgil's sherpherds.
