Women in the work of Woody Allen

 ‘I’m interested in the relationships that women have with other women’

 

Saturday 13th January 2018

 

As part of a prospective edited volume, this one-day conference will explore the role and representation of women in the work of Woody Allen including his films, his plays, written work and his recent Amazon TV serial. It is our intention to bring together researchers to consider how women are represented in the work of Woody Allen, to consider the notion of the male perspective on writing women, and to explore the various approaches to relationships with and between women.

Tuesday, July 25, 2017 - 9:31am
NeMLA Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 1, 2017

In this panel, we propose to explore the roles of human-nonhuman encounters in the field of Latinx Studies and Literature at large. How do animal, human, botanical, and epistemological bodies alter the way we approach ontological interpretations in Latinx texts, visual art, and/or performances? In addition to these concerns, this Call for Papers seeks work that traverses a varied range of bodies and utilizes interdisciplinary frameworks in innovative ways. Topics might include, but are not limited to: race and animal studies, transgender bodies and queering the nonhuman, corporeal ecologies, critical approaches to landscapes, bodies of land, and water.

Accounts of migration and displacement often focus on the bounded terrains of specific cities and the navigation of certain rooted sites, places of origin and/or destination. At the same time, cartographic and spatial terminology (e.g. “mapping,” “space,” “place,” “orientation”) are used in increasingly metaphorical ways, at the possible expense of more historical and/or materialist approaches to theorizing the global, the planetary, and the transnational. This panel invites contributors to examine the affective as well as material dimensions of being ‘in transit,’ the enabling condition of more familiar narrative tropes of exile, migration, travel and displacement.

Gender and Medieval Studies Conference 2018: Gender, Identity, Iconography

Corpus Christi College, Oxford, 

8th-10th January 2018

 

The glittering beauty of the Alfred Jewel, the rich illustration of the Lindisfarne Gospels, the dominating Great West Window of York Minster, the intricate embroidery of the Bayeux Tapestry, the luminous Maestà of Duccio, the opulent Oseberg ship burial, and the sophisticated imagery of the Ruthwell cross are all testament to the centrality of the visual to our understanding of a range of medieval cultures.
