[UPDATE] Saint The Value of C.S. Lewis' Scholarship Half a Century after The Discarded Image, CFP Deadline: 29 December 2014

Symposium on Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Saint Louis University

Session for the 2015 Symposium on Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Saint Louis University, June 15-17: It has been about half a century since C.S. Lewis' The Discarded Image was published (1964), and the time seems ripe to look into its legacy, past and ongoing, as well as the legacy of Lewis' literary scholarship at large. With the constantly shifting critical landscape in medieval studies, especially the recent rise in new critical perspectives (e.g. disability studies, theories of the monstrous, etc.), a past work of medieval scholarship such as Lewis' can seem like a product of its own time more than a seminal advance in medieval studies.

"Collective intelligence has to organise itself into a hostile intelligence — also in the sense of inoculating the host as a malignant parasite. An alien intelligence is not concerned with any orthodoxy, it proliferates and organises its own heresies".

Circling Our Wagons Conference: Stories and Histories of Hip Hop
April 16-19, 2015
Rap music is a black cultural expression that prioritizes black voices from the margins of urban America. Rap music is a form of rhymed storytelling accompanied by highly rhythmic, electronically based music. It began in the mid-1970s in the South Bronx in New York City as a part of hip hop, an African-American and Afro-Caribbean youth culture composed of graffiti, breakdancing, and rap music. From the outset, rap music has articulated the pleasures and problems of urban black life in contemporary America.

Tova Cooper (Panel Organizer) for American Studies Association 2015 Meeting

In November 2013, the autism community vocally criticized Suzanne Wright, the co-founder of Autism Speaks, for characterizing autism as a "monumental health crisis" that brings "despair" to the families and caretakers of autistics. Wright's critics, including Jon Elder Robinson (who resigned from the organization's board after the incident), were disturbed by her suggestion that autism is a "national emergency" that produces misery for everyone involved. Wright's comments privilege neurotypical views and behaviors rather than acknowledging that many individuals on the autism spectrum experience the world in an atypical but not inferior way.

The project is in its middle stages, but more papers are needed. In particular, since the book will likely be published by a Canadian University press, we also particularly papers by Canadians (subvention waived with 50% Canadian participants).

JANE AUSTEN'S PRIDE AND PREJUDICE: A CRITICAL COMPANION [UPDATE]

"If the authentic test for a great novel is rereading, and the joys of yet further rereading, then Pride and Prejudice can rival any novel ever written." — Harold Bloom One of the most popular works of fiction in English literature, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice (1813) has withstood the tests of time and has been revisited time and again with renewed critical engagements, adaptations and popular celebration. Regardless to say, several tomes have been dedicated to this particular work over the years, and many more continue to be produced with consistency that engage with the novel across areas such as the application of literary theories, in the context of cultural studies or even popular culture.
