ATTENDING TO LITERATURE

We invite paper proposals for a British Academy funded interdisciplinary symposium on the concept of attention, to be held at the University of Nottingham School of English on the 3rd December. The symposium has three aims:

1. To allow researchers who work on similar questions from different disciplines to interact for the purpose of developing future collaborations and networks;

2. To provide a training opportunity for ECRs in engagement and outreach, allowing participants to practice bringing the specifics of their research to bear on an issue of public concern (attention);

"Cosmopolitanism and World Citizenship" International Conference

Saturday, November 30, 2019

“I am a citizen of the cosmos” Cynic Diogenes replied in the fourth century BCE when he was asked about his origins. What does it mean to be a global citizen today? Highly complex, multilayered and always contemporary, the concept of cosmopolitanism offers fertile ground and uncharted waters for scholarly interpretations. For millennia, philosophers have theorized on the meaning of global citizenship in an effort to identify who are the “kosmopolites”, the real citizens of “the Small World, the Great” in the words of Nobel laureate Odysseus Elytis.

“Somewhere in Between: Borders and Borderlands” International Conference Oxford

In an ever changing world the problems of setting boundaries as well as the need to create meanings and establish understanding of diverse phenomena have always been of the utmost importance for humanity. Borders, boundaries, frontiers, and borderlands, naturally formed or man made, are grounded in various ethical traditions, and have always been associated with limits and restrictions. The ongoing process of globalisation is changing the role and stereotypes of borders, so that they are often seen as opportunities rather than constraints. However, in some cases they are still being militarized and conflicted.

"Faces of War" International Conference

The twentieth century, violent and brutal, offers a wide spectrum of material that deserves further analysis. The Great War introduced the first aspects of modern warfare; the Second World War, even more devastating in its atrocities, advanced war further. The Cold War introduced modern society to new methods and technological advancements of warfare, beyond anything our species had seen. The thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of Iron Curtain in 1989 altered the balance of global power yet again.

Illumination: Perspectives on the Way of Light

The origin myths of multiple cultures describe a primordial order of life which emerges from the subterranean world into an upper world of light and growth.  In recent eras, light has come to serve as a metaphor for learning and technological advancement.  The term “enlightenment” continues to portray humankind as both the embodiment of spiritual growth and an historic era in which science and the humanities grew intertwined.  Like moths, we are drawn to the light—everything from the sun to gilded manuscripts to the screens of our own computers.  This conference examines the way light has and continues to reveal significant aspects of the human condition.Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:

International Conference on Children's Studies

Childhood is a crucial stage in the formation of personality, value orientations, self-image and ideas about the world. However, the subject of childhood has become the target of research relatively recently. A wide range of problems and an interdisciplinary approach to this phenomenon have extended the boundaries of the academic and professional research interests. Nowadays, the study of children and childhood is an integral part of the humanities and social sciences. We invite psychologists, educators, sociologists, anthropologists, cultural and literary scholars, historians, art experts, lawyers, linguists and specialists in other fields to participate in the conference.

Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:
