  Violent Spaces

 

We are excited to announce the Call for Papers for Violent Spaces, the annual PGR conference of the Landscape, Space and Place Reading Group, which will be held on the 9th of September at the University of Nottingham. Spatial violence is an expansive concept which covers a range of environmental, social, political, economic and historical phenomena. As such, what is offered here is merely an insight into the way in which spatial violence might act upon and shape our contemporary world.

The proposed panel will analyze the relationship of music and music performance and the text within various national literatures, from 19th century to present day, by offering an overview of the different methodological approaches to this topic and investigating the role of music in literature. We invite a broad range of papers devoted to the analysis of the complex interplay of the two art forms, aesthetic and cultural interactions between music and literature, audience and performers, the nature of creativity, the image of the artist, and the role of music in the specific texts, as well as the broader topics of integrating a musical performance within the narrative form.

Environment is a fluid, elastic word. After combing the lengthy list of the many meanings of environment in a trusty Merriam Webster dictionary, one arrives at the French roots of the term: that which surrounds. The Graduate Student Association of the American Culture Studies Program at Bowling Green State University invites scholars to an interdisciplinary symposium focused on exploring the multilayered meanings of the term environment using the broadest definition of the term as a common ground for meeting and commingling.

117th Annual Conference - San Diego, California
Thursday, November 14 - Sunday, November 17, 2019

This session will focus on Samuel Beckett, the preeminent advocate for the clown. In Beckett’s novels, the protagonists and the narrator are often clowns. Waiting For Godot was written for actors who donned the attire of tramp-clowns. Beckett’s inspiration often sprang from silent film— he emulated Charles Chaplin and Buster Keaton.
