Popular rhetoric about athletics consistently emphasizes corporeal mastery and bodily perfection. Always exhibiting physical and mental toughness, athletes train ceaselessly to reach the pinnacle of sporting accomplishment: taking things to the next level. In fact, there is a good argument to be made that athletic excellence requires superhuman skill, for it is only when athletes devote 110% of themselves to their sports that victory can be achieved.
Hosted by Victoria University, the Australasian Universities Language and Literature Association (AULLA) Conference will be held in Melbourne, Australia from 7th-9th December 2016. Its theme is 'Love and the Word' and our keynote speakers are Peter Cryle, Anne Freadman, and Kam Louie.
Already we have received papers focused on: the semantics of 'love' (in various languages); erotics and desire; performance; politics and rhetoric; poetry; prose fiction; pedagogy and teaching; colonial and postcolonial modalities; religion and the sacred; technology; and philosophy. This second Call for Proposals is open-themed, meaning we shall welcome any proposals that offer insightful research.
Early Modern Women: Texts and Objects
A session at the annual meeting of the Renaissance Society of America, 30 March-1 April 2017 in Chicago
The Goddess Studies Unit seeks to retrieve the narrative importance of female figures in mythology and religion and works to infuse equity into the nature of exclusion. How does this year's theme, "Religion, Race, and Racism," intersect with female (cis/LGBTQ/inclusive) figures and the study of women in narrative and in culture? Are there goddesses, goddess scholarship, or goddess-centric worship that subvert racialization and/or colonization? Are there figures that have subverted demonization due to race or gender or who have been claimed to combat such "Othering"? Contrarily, are there figures that have been suppressed or marginalized due to race and/or gender that are currently being reclaimed, reinterpreted, or re-discovered? How?
