Identity is inescapable and in constant flux. It can be located in the body, in the discourse that surrounds and determines bodies, or in the more nebulous realm of language. From race, class, gender, and orientation to professional, personal, familial, and cultural identities, we all negotiate multiple aspects of identity in our daily lives and our conceptions of ourselves.

[CFP DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 3/17/2017] Digital Spaces

Thursday, March 9, 2017 - 7:47am
Cornell University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 10, 2017

With the opening of the Digital CoLab, Olin Library has established a physical space for collaborative work in the digital humanities. But why do the digital humanities need a space, let alone conferences, at all? We can see this movement happening outside of academia as well where digital, global networks have collected into hallmark centers; with trendy coworking spaces opening in major metropolitan areas and Apple, Facebook, Amazon, and Google’s opening new campuses, the image of group computational work anchored to an iconic, single space has become both commonplace and powerful. What does the lab model, whether it be repurposing a single room or building a flagship campus, tell us about the state of the digital humanities?

Simon Fraser University English Graduate Conference 2017 - Liquidity: “Unpathed Waters, Undreamed Shores”

Location: Vancouver, BC / Conference date: July 7-8


From this perspective, water is no longer a singular, external object, but rather a material that animates us, and that we in turn animate. [...] water is no longer just something out there, but is very much the majority of what is in here, perpetually moving in a temporal flux.     - Rita Wong, “Waters as Potential Paths to Peace”

Water, water, everywhere, / Nor any drop to drink.     - Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

Be water, my friend.    - Bruce Lee, A Warrior’s Journey

Evolving Stories

Wednesday, April 5, 2017 - 4:46pm
GradCATS / De Montfort University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 24, 2017

Stories are fluid and mutable, forever in a state of flux, and gradually developing according to their shifting surroundings. While certain features of a story endure, other elements undergo changes. Indeed, in their homology between biological and cultural adaptation, Gary Bortolotti and Linda Hutcheon (2007) highlight the importance of persistence and diversity, as persistent and diverse replicators and narratives thrive in biology and culture respectively. Through exploring the persistent elements of a story, we can examine universal themes, timeless symbols and archetypal characters. Meanwhile, the areas of diversity offer insight into the plethora of contextual components framing a story.
