Mad, Bad, and Dangerous Texts:

Controversies in Reading, Writing, Editing, and Printing

 

Please circulate widely.

 

In addition to conveying controversial ideas, books themselves have both committed and inspired mad, bad, and dangerous behaviour. The production and consumption of printed matter can be subversive, destructive, or downright criminal. Studying books as material objects reveals controversies that are fascinating in their own right, regardless of the subject matter between their covers.

Graduate Students in English 2019 Conference

“Opening Doors:Creating Opportunities for Difficult Conversations”

March 9, 2019

Starting conversations on difficult topics can seem insurmountable at times. The 2019 GSE Conference focuses on how texts (books, tv shows, films, social media, etc.) open the door to difficult conversations, offering the opportunity for enlightenment and understanding in a time seemingly bereft of both.

Seminar: From Life to Afterlives: Creative Re-presentation in the Premodern World

updated: 
Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - 4:01pm
Sewanee Medieval Colloquium
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Organizer: Alison Frazier, University of Texas, Austin

DESCRIPTION:

Across the pre-modern world, biography in all media focused largely on rulers, warrior heroes, and spiritual adepts. Such figures, historical or not, were understood to embody virtues worth preserving, admiring and, on occasion, imitating. Thus, the global phenomena of afterlives: creative re-presentations that aimed to secure the posthumous life, or life-effect, of the hero. The topic of afterlives encourages pursuit of a global and comparative pre-modernity that remains generously local, conceptually and theoretically astute, and disciplinarily diverse.
