"I am interested in certain [sites] that have the curious property of being in relation to all other sites, but in such a way as to suspect, neutralize, or invert the set of relations that they happen to designate, mirror or reflect. These spaces, as it were…are linked with all others, which however contradict all other sites" —Michel Foucault [1]

Travel in the Nineteenth Century: Narratives, Histories and Collections (14-15 July 2011, Lincoln, UK) [Reminder]

In the nineteenth century, railways made distant locations ever more accessible, the Grand Tour became more and more a pastime of the middle classes and British imperial expansion brought exotic locales and non-Western cultures ever closer to home. New ways of thinking about and communicating experiences of travel and of interactions with other cultures held a significant influence in various areas of nineteenth-century culture. This period saw an enormous expansion in museums and popular exhibition culture, technological innovations such as photography and film, as well as the vast growth of a popular press that served to deliver these experiences, images and objects to an increasingly literate public.

Classical Traditions in Science Fiction: Call for Article Submissions, Deadline August 1, 2011

updated: 
Friday, February 4, 2011 - 12:39pm
Co-Editors: Brett M. Rogers (Gettysburg College) and Benjamin Stevens (Bard College)

A rich and relatively under-explored area in modern receptions of classical traditions is science fiction. How does science fiction imagine ancient thinking as contributing to or challenging modern discourses with special regard to those discourses' scientific aspects or interests? How does it constitute the classics in light of master narratives of modern scientific knowledge and practice? By raising these and other questions, this volume will ask how ancient Greco-Roman classics continue to speak – or are received as speaking – to a modern world separated from antiquity by such profound processes as the Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution.
