Queer Corruptions

updated: 
Wednesday, September 12, 2018 - 11:28am
NeMLA 2019, Washington, D.C.
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

“Queer Corruptions” will examine the theme of queer texts that corrupt characters who encounter them within a narrative. We are looking for papers that explore how a text that is discovered by a character/s in a narrative serves as a queer agent that corrupts the character/s. Consider, for example, Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray in which Lord Henry gifts Dorian with a small book bound in yellow cloth that turns out to be Joris-Karl Huysmans’ Á Rebours, a seminal French Decadent novel. It is this book that begins to take hold of Dorian’s psyche and serves as his introduction to queer desire.

“Complexities, Appeals, and Paradoxes of Language” International Conference

updated: 
Monday, August 13, 2018 - 3:12pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, August 31, 2018

Those scholars committed to an inter-disciplinary perspective on human experiences confront centuries-old divisions between and among the natural sciences, social sciences and the humanities, competing investigative methods, descriptive foci, and explanatory emphases. Bolstered by specialization, administrative demarcations, professionalization, and expertise, the discontinuities generate trajectories of intellectual enrichment and progress.  On the other hand, have scholars within these intellectual spheres, disciplines, and area studies become passing ships in the night?  What would constitute evidence of this condition, if this is, indeed, the case? Have scholars not been displaced from public discourse and social media?

International Conference on Ecocriticism and Environmental Studies

updated: 
Monday, August 13, 2018 - 12:13pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 20, 2018

Ecocriticism plays a significant role in shaping environmental consciousness. Representations of nature’s agency become central to many studies conducted in literature, culture studies, philosophy, history, sociology or political science. This conference aims to explore the relationship between the physical environment and text in its broader meaning as well as analyse the social concerns raised by environmental crisis.

Conference panels will be related, but not limited, to:

“(Pero) hoy es incuestionable la supremacía de lo digital, y si a lo largo de nuestra historia un cambio de tecnología supuso evolución en las formas de vida, ¿qué nos puede deparar lo digital?”.

(Cassany: 2000)

 

The research group EL@N from Universidade Aberta will be hosting the first conference on innovation and technology in language teaching as applied to e-learning and b-learning environments. The aim of this initiative is to spark debate on teaching practices and the effect of technology in learning, through a sharing of perspectives and approaches to the theme in different educational contexts.
