The Poetics of Mapping: Representing the Built Environment 
University of Pennsylvania 
April 20-21, 2017 

This graduate student conference is conceived as an opportunity to think more broadly about the ways that poetry shapes and is shaped by the environment in which it exists and the way qualitative visual representations of cities are shaped by non-narrative usages of language. It seeks to bring graduate students in city planning and the larger social sciences together with students who are putting poetry into conversation with spatial forms.

Chèr(e)s collègues,

Le comité organisateur du colloque étudiant de notre département ouvre la période d'acceptation de propositions jusqu'au 8 février.

C'est une raison de plus de soumettre une proposition au colloque, qui s'intitule cette année "Fabrications of Reality - Fabriques du réel", et qui aura lieu le 24 mars 2017. La professeure Kyoo Lee de John Jay College sera notre invitée d'honneur.

Cordialement,

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 24, 2017

The International Conference “Representations of Hostile Spaces in Literature and the Arts: Images and Metaphors” sets out to study works of literature, cinema, music and the visual arts related to hostile spaces and the images and metaphors derived from them in literature and the arts.

This interdisciplinary conference intends to be a meeting point for specialists in literature and different arts in order to foster debate around the artistic representations of hostile spaces in the modern world. Thus, we propose new approaches to a subject that has great impact on the cultural sphere with a special emphasis on literature, the arts and architecture.
