Alice through the Ages: The 150th Anniversary of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

15th-17th September 2015.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2015. Lewis Carroll famously opens his Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with his protagonist "burning with curiosity", which leads Alice to follow the White Rabbit into an alternative reality. That same sense of curiosity has circulated about Wonderland since the book was first published. This conference aims to offer new understandings of the work by re-evaluating long held truisms, subjecting the text to new theoretical approaches and considering the history of adaptation and its uses in popular culture.

Natures 2015: Reading the Books of Nature
Authors and artists, from Galileo to Rousseau, Woolfe to Kingsolver, Attenborough to Cousteau, have been exploring how to read or record nature for thousands of years. We seek papers that continue this quest in the context of any genre, time period, or discipline within the humanities. Topics may include, but are not limited to:
• A particular character's or author's way or reading or misreading nature, speaking to or speaking against nature.
• Representations of nature as pitifully silenced victim, ominously silent threat, or speaking agent.
• Linking or de-linking nature with books, reading, or writing.
• The 'book of nature' as a parallel to, or competitor with, sacred texts.

What does social healing look like in its most effective manifestations? How are we responding to the violence(s) and systemic oppressions that pervade our communities? How have we and how can we continue to attend to the real needs and social ills of all our respective communities? What strategies affect revolutionary positive healing? In what ways are social healers resisting, confronting, and/or transforming community healing? Our questions are inspired by the Caribbean novelist, scholar, and social activist, Dr. Erna Brodber.
