Papers for this session may focus on any aspect of Walker Percy’s life and works, either fiction or non-fiction.  Especially welcome are topics relevant to the South Atlantic Modern Longauge Association's 2019 conference theme: “Languages: Power, Identity, Relationships.”  For Percy, the human capacity for language and for naming gives us our identity and is only possible through relationships of intersubjectivity.  Percy wrote extensively on language, creating his “radical anthropology” based on his unique semiotic, with these themes pervasive in his novels.  For more information about conference theme, see:  https://samla.memberclicks.net/

Current debates about digital technology are caught in a death spiral of gloom, doom and anxiety. After a long period of optimism that accompanied the explosion of social media and assumptions of their democratic potential, today’s discourse is dominated by fear. Fear about the unchecked power of digital monopolies like Facebook, Google and Amazon; about the (ab)use of social media by far right political movements; about the psychopathologies, risks and trade-offs associated with constant and unyielding connectivity; fears about the radical surveillance enabled by the digital.

University College London's Department of English is pleased to announce its annual graduate conference 'SYNAESTHESIA', to be held on Friday 14th June 2019. We welcome proposals from Masters students, PhD students and recent graduates working in all literary periods on the theme of synaesthesia. We hope to address a variety of questions about the intersection of literature and sensory perception. What is the relationship between literature and the senses? What kinds of unorthodox sensory experience can texts yield? How does written and oral language render or disturb the categories of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch?

Ever since the discussion about the name and nature of the European People’s Party in the 1970s, Christian Democratic parties in Europe positioned themselves in an alliance with conservative people’s parties. Corruption scandals, monetary crises, fear for loss of (national) identity and especially concerns about immigration, globalization, and internal security increasingly caused voters to drift away from their traditional parties and from Europe. New political formations at the left and the right, including populist ones, competed for these votes. While some historians asserted that Christian Democratic parties have successfully resisted the populist trend to scale down tolerance, recent observers are not so sure anymore.

LANGUAGE IN THE FRANCOPHONE SPACE

Wednesday, March 13, 2019 - 10:37am
SAMLA 91 - Nov 8-10 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Language is a crucial aspect of the Francophone world, on the threshold between French and Creole, or other indigenous languages. The decision to write in a certain language can be simply dictated by the author’s feelings, or it can become a true political statement. As well, choosing one does not always mean that the other will remain silent: whether such process is carefully crafted, or on the contrary happens on a subconscious level, languages influence one another, and such influx tend to surface in poems, novels, songs, and other forms of expression.
