This conference hosts a multidisciplinary conversation on how we contend with the emergence of violence toward difference, before it receives remedial treatment by the law, that is, before it crosses the threshold of the rule of law. Many – perhaps most – forms of discrimination persist for long periods of time beneath the threshold of the law, and may continue indefinitely (one thinks of recent debates about the Confederate flag at the South Carolina State Capitol, following the Charleston Church shooting).

THE INTERFACE OF LITERATURE AND ECONOMY

An international conference organised by the Faculty of English, University of Oxford. This event builds on the success of the 2009 Oxford conference, After Arundel: Religious Writing in Fifteenth-Century England, which resulted in a book of essays (ed. by Vincent Gillespie and Kantik Ghosh) that vigorously interrogated the nature of religious and intellectual culture in England in the long fifteenth century. After Chichele adopts a similar investigative and interdisciplinary approach. The period has been chosen precisely because the inner workings of English intellectual and religious life during these years have proved challengingly resistant to the formation of grand critical narratives.

Lewis Carroll (1832-1898), Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) presents the story of a little girl, Alice. She falls into the rabbit hole and enters a foreign land, "wonderland." The animals talk and her interaction with others changes. She has to understand the logic upon the wonderland. She needs to find out who she is. She asks: "Who in the world am I"? Ah, that's the great puzzle" (Carroll 18). In the wonderland things that Alice has been taken for granted are not certain anymore. This panel invites papers that discuss the concepts and relations between place and identity. Panelists may consider:
