Michel Foucault: Discourse Theory and the Archive
(Göttingen University, 16 July 2016)

This year marks not only Michel Foucault's 90th birthday, but also the 50th anniversary of the publication of his seminal book Let Mots et les Choses, which made Foucault a prominent intellectual figure throughout Europe. We would like to commemorate this double anniversary with a one-day symposium organised by the Department of British Literature and Culture at Göttingen University in cooperation with the Göttingen Center for Genderstudies and the Center for Theory of Culture and Society.

NOSTALGIA - Deadline 20th April 2016

Dandelion Journal, Birkbeck College

The Dandelion editors seek submissions on the theme of NOSTALGIA for their forthcoming issue.

Nostalgia is a ubiquitous presence in contemporary culture. Images and fantasies of the past permeate cultural and political discourses: from the mediated recycling of retro culture and popular history, to nostalgia as a method of political renewal (for example, Donald Trump's campaign slogan 'Make America Great Again!' and Ken Loach's The Spirit of '45).

Since his seminal writing on The Sandman (1989-present) and long since before and after on works such as Batman, Miracleman, The Books of Magic, The Endless, Stardust, The Graveyard Book, etc. from adult graphic novels (Neverwhere) to voluminous amounts of children's graphic novels and illustrated texts (Coraline, Chu's Day, Fortunately, the Milk, Hansel and Gretel etc.), Neil Gaiman has established himself as one of the most prominent, if not prolific, writers in the medium of sequential art in the late twentieth and twenty-first century.

Laura Ingalls Wilder: Critical Perspectives

Since 1932, when Laura Ingalls Wilder published her first novel, Little House in the Big Woods, Americans have been fascinated by Wilder's representation of the American frontier and pioneer life. That fascination has been renewed with the 2014 publication of Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography. Edited by Pamela Smith Hill and published by the South Dakota Historical Society, Pioneer Girl offers readers a view into Wilder's life and her writing process. Hill's introduction and extensive annotations, intended at least in part for an academic audience, allow readers to see Wilder, her life, and her career in context.

Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom

For the patient's position in the therapeutic relationship to be reconfigured, perhaps the healthcare professional's position needs to be likewise explored and reconsidered. For patienthood to be compatible with personhood, professionalism too may need to be compatible with personhood.

Transgressive Filmmakers and Their Films

updated: 
Tuesday, March 8, 2016 - 2:40pm
Film & History: An Interdisciplinary Journal

This is a CFP for Film & History Conference. 26-30 October 2016
The Hilton Milwaukee; Milwaukee, WI, USA

DEADLINE for abstracts: June 1, 2016

Cinematic transgression is about directors challenging or overcoming the status quo in their films, most often through shock and shlock to wake slumbering viewers with (sometimes hidden) social commentary. While each generation has spawned new notions or means of transgression in film, some have remained constant: sex, violence, gore, sacrilege, drugs, race, gender performance, etc. These films frequently are made by a director who is also an embodiment of transgression, whether or not they work within the mainstream system.
