Conceptual Art Now: Rethinking Conceptual Art

Traffic: Conceptual Art in Canada 1965-1980 at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 2012-2013 posited conceptual art as "the most transformative art movement of the 20th century," signifying conceptual art as a discrete moment, whereas the Power Plant's Postscript: Writing After Conceptual Art in 2013 sought to explore conceptualism as a continuum in contemporary as well as historical art and writing.

As the prophet of magic realism and an extraordinary satirist of political dictatorship, Gabriel Garcia Marquez's literary horizons are incomprehensibly vast, and the rigorous intensity of his writings is inexplicably multidimensional. Marquez challenges the luminal line between 'story' and 'history', and interrogates the public and private domain with an uncommon and effortless ease and clarity. He fuses the chaotic and the cosmic, the materialistic and the mystical, and invites us to participate in a magico-historical narrative of which he is an undisputed craftsman.

Mystical Theology Network

The relationship between word and image, and the ways in which medieval art (be it visual, textual, or both) operates as a means of expressing the inexpressible, will be explored in a two-day conference held 8th-9th January 2016 at St Hilda's College, Oxford. This interdisciplinary conference will bring together theologians, art historians, and literary scholars to examine the ways in which various forms of artistic expression are used to articulate the mystical or that which cannot easily be spoken.

This symposium calls for reflections on the relationship between women and productivity in its myriad forms and various situations. Focusing on this intersection across times and spaces, our goal is to address its bearing on ethics, kinship, bonding, nationality, globalization, environment etc. It invites not mere descriptions of, but attempts to grapple with the significance of how women and ideas around productivity are constructed, mutually construct each other, and are culturally (re)presented and deployed.

Papers are invited on issues related to any of the following themes:

"Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows."-Shakespeare's The Tempest (2.2)

UC Riverside's (dis)junctions conference invites papers and panels that push at the boundary of contemporary scholarship. Our critical focus, "Strange Bedfellows," is geared specifically toward innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to cultural, literary and theoretical texts. We are looking particularly for scholarship that emerges from the disjunction of incongruent forms, that thrives on the border of the unfamiliar, and that transgresses the boundary of the expected.

Panel Description:

This panel seeks to emphasize the diversity of women's spiritual experiences by showing how spiritual and religious identity intersect with other vectors of difference such as gender, race, class, age, sexuality, and ability in contemporary American women's poetry. Most religions seek to reconcile the idea of human suffering with the existence of a loving God. However, men have traditionally held a disproportionate amount of power and authority in delineating doctrinal truths regarding theodicy in the world's major religions.

The Hartford Wits and Their Legacy (NeMLA, Hartford, CT, March 17-20, 2016)

NEMLA might start its annual meeting in Hartford with Hartford, historically with the Algonquians, Dutch and English settlers, or as I propose, the Hartford Wits who met and wrote there in the Revolutionary period. The Hartford Wits are most interesting for their intertwined poetic and national faith: the country and their poetry could accomplish anything. At that time, a new nation, short on army, navy, and cash, could hope to be recognized as a great nation thanks to the glory still accorded to respected art, especially to classics. Sometimes critics convinced themselves the U.S. already had achieved the literary glories of antiquity.
