Writing that Shapes the World:
Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

1st Global Conference
Call for Participation 2017

Tuesday 4th April – Thursday 6th April 2017
Lisbon, Portugal

 

Writing has been part of human history for 5,000 years, give or take a few hundred. It developed independently in more than one part of the globe which speaks to its fundamental quality as a truly human capability. And it has shaped cultures, thought processes, knowledge, and how all of these get transmitted from one person, one generation, one era to the next. Writing in a very real sense is reflexive of, and instrumental in the continuance of culture.

Evil Children: Children and Evil

1st Global Conference
Call for Participation 2017

Friday April 7th – Sunday April 9th 2017
Lisbon, Portugal

 

The idea of the child as innocent, as pure, the ‘little angel’ in need of protection from the harsh realities of life and the corrupting influences of the world around us has come to dominate our thinking, language, values, social policies and educational philosophies in the past few decades. Children are seen as ‘little people’, ‘blank slates’, works in progress who are loved, nurtured and guided as they grow to become mature, rational and responsible adults.

ACLA 2017: "Feeling Collective"

updated: 
Friday, September 9, 2016 - 2:22pm
American Comparative Literature Association 2017, Utrecht
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

This panel hopes to investigate affect as that which disturbs the binary logic structuring contemporary discourses on collectivity. What happens when, rather than thinking of affect’s circulation as “mediating” between subjectivity and collectivity, we allow affect to unsettle this dyad? What does it mean for affect to render undecidable the relation between individual and collective, or to orient us towards a relation possessed of no advance guarantees? How does negative affect—for example, Sedgwick’s notion that shame throws the question of identity into relief—augment normative notions of self-possession towards new understandings of relationality?
