SOHRAB SHAHID SALESS: EXILE, DISPLACEMENT AND THE STATELESS MOVING IMAGE

updated:

Sunday, October 8, 2017

Friday 19th January 2018, Goethe-Institut London, UK

Keynote speaker: Prof. Hamid Naficy (Northwestern)

Deadline for submission: Sunday 8th October 2017

This one-day conference brings together scholars from a range of disciplines to explore the work of Iranian filmmaker Sohrab Shahid Saless (1944-1998) as conduit for a wider engagement with exiled and displaced moving image practitioners: their ethics, aesthetics, mode(s) of production as well as their precarious lives and often uncertain legacy.

We invite contributions by researchers and scholars of all backgrounds and in all stages of their careers to one of the following three sections:

American Literature in the World Graduate Conference, Yale University, April 6, 2018

updated: 
Monday, September 25, 2017 - 4:29pm
Yale University, Department of English
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 15, 2017

The conference hopes to broaden the scope of American literature, opening it to more complex geographies, and to a variety of genres and media. The impetus comes partly from a survey of what is currently in the field: it is impossible to read the work of Toni Morrison and Junot Díaz, Yusef Komunyakaa and Carolyn Forché, Tony Kushner and Lynn Nottage without seeing that, for all these authors, the reference frame is no longer simply the United States, but a larger, looser, more contextually varied set of coordinates, populated by laboring bodies, migrating faiths, generational sagas, memories of war, as well as the accents of unforgotten tongues, the taste and smell of beloved foods and spices.

Nationalism and Internationalism: Irish Modernist Poetry of the Interwar Years

updated: 
Monday, September 25, 2017 - 3:11pm
NEMLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

The interwar years (1918-1939) were a turbulent time in Ireland. With the aftermath of the 1916 Easter Rising, the Irish Civil War and the formation of the Irish Free State in 1922, Ireland was a nation in upheaval and at war with itself. The symbiotic relationship between the formation of the Irish Free State and the poetry that was produced during the interwar period is of particular if sometimes neglected importance to the canon of Irish Modernism. This panel discussion invites participants to look more deeply at the body of work that came at the end of the Irish Literary Revival and led to the formation of Irish Modernism.
