Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, UC Santa Barbara

The Interdisciplinary Humanities Center welcomes paper proposals for "The Humanities, the Neurosciences and the Brain," an interdisciplinary conference exploring the multiple accords, and discords, that characterize humanistic and neuroscientific approaches to the study of the brain. Gabrielle Starr, author of Feeling Beauty: The Neuroscience of Aesthetic Experience, will give the keynote address. We invite papers that explore creative framings of neuroscientific inquiry through humanistic perspectives, as well as artistic explorations of inner states and mental landscapes. We also welcome presentations that raise ethical, philosophical and social questions about neuroscientific knowledge of the brain and its functioning.

Galway, Aug. 22-26, 2016 "20th and 21st century British Literature and medical discourse"

Monday, December 14, 2015 - 11:30am
Nicolas Pierre BOILEAU Aix-Marseille University

In her 1930 essay 'On Being Ill' Woolf noted how "strange" it was "that illness ha[d] not taken its place with love and battle and jealousy among the prime themes of literature." Does Woolf's comment still hold? A number of scholars have recently explored the symbolic value of illness in literature but how far can or should literature go beyond metaphor in representing the experience of illness? How far does Rita Charon's concept of 'narrative medicine' capture the distinctiveness of literature as an alternative to medical discourse? We invite papers on the interconnections between literature and medical discourse in 20th and 21st century British literature.

The Georgia-Carolina College English Association (GACCEA)

The Georgia-Carolina College English Association (GACCEA) invites proposals for individual papers and three-person panels at its annual meeting in metropolitan Atlanta. The conference will be held on Friday, 29 January 2016, at Georgia Gwinnett College.
The topic is "Diaspora in the Digital Age: Texts of Leave-Taking to New Lands."
The plight of refugees far from their homeland has been a societal phenomenon for thousands of years. In the last two centuries alone, people have fled famine and fighting for resettlement in new lands. In the last two years, families have abandoned ancient villages for new destinations on other continents. Many families have left rural regions for urban centers during migrations within countries.

"Yoga Justice / Yoga Violence" Conference

updated: 
Sunday, December 13, 2015 - 1:28pm
Race and Yoga Working Group

The Race and Yoga Research Working Group at the University of California, Berkeley will host its third annual conference on Friday, April 22, 2016. The theme of the conference is "Yoga Justice / Yoga Violence." Yoga can be a tool to promote social justice. Yet, it can also be used to perpetuate violence and oppression. This conference invites a diverse array of practitioners and scholars to critically examine justice and violence in yoga communities.

What is yoga justice? How is "justice" defined and by whom? How do we rethink narratives that promote justice through yoga? Conversely, what kinds of violence occur in yoga spaces? How are people responding and/or resisting forms of yoga violence?
