Glitches and Ghosts - An Interdisciplinary Conference - 17th April

updated: 
Tuesday, January 8, 2019 - 11:20am
Lancaster University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 17, 2019

Glitches are moments of disruption; they represent the exposure of technical process, moving away from the binaries of input and output to consider what comes in-between. The growing ubiquity of interconnected systems prompts a desire to understand such intangible networks around the user, an attempt to try and engage with these digital phenomena as alternate forms of ‘presence’ that cannot help but recourse to anthropocentric terms – virus, cloud, render ghost. The frequent ethereality of such language attempts to visualise, embody, and comprehend the profusion of technical systems that we share the atmosphere with, their very terming gesturing to their spectral protrusion into, ostensibly, ‘our’ reality.

The Philip Roth Society
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 20, 2019

The Philip Roth Society invites participants for a roundtable discussion on the topic of "Philip Roth's Literary Successors" at the ALA conference in Boston, May 23-26, 2019. The discussion might address the following questions, among others: Who are Roth's literary inheritors? Where are his influences evident among contemporary writers? In what ways (thematic, stylistic, etc.) has Roth paved the way for writers today? Is there very notion of a literary "successor" to Roth an impossibility? Formal papers will not be read during the roundtable; rather, it will consist of brief opening statements from participants, followed by conversation amongst participants and the audience members.

CFP: Epistemologies and Graphic Narratives: Making and Communicating Knowledge in Hybrid Forms

updated: 
Tuesday, January 8, 2019 - 12:27pm
ICLA Research Committee on Comics Studies and Graphic Narrative
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 4, 2019

The history of hybrid forms, defined as textual and visual products that combine and integrate multiple types of symbolic elements, extends back to ancient times. Our current category of graphic narrative, as constructed in the Centre Belge de la Bande Dessinée, Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics, and Thierry Groenstein’s Système de la Bande Dessinée, participates in that history, gaining importance and traction in society and the academy in the current century. This workshop is intended to examine the history, function, and significance of graphic narratives, specifically in making and communicating various forms of knowledge—personal, scientific, historic, cultural, and textual—in a broader context of hybridity.
