Hope and Fear: Interdisciplinary Conference in the Humanities

Monday, November 7, 2016 - 10:09am
Carroll College
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 6, 2017

Our social, political, and religious climate has been dominated recently by a mood of collective fear, regarding everything from economic anxiety, the outbreak of new and frightening diseases, mass shootings, social tension and violence between law enforcement and communities of color, environmental and technological dangers, and the threat of terrorism both foreign and domestic.  Where is there room for hope in such times of uncertainty and fear?  Indeed, what would hope look like?  What might the interplay be between hope and fear as we reflect on the past, present, and future not only of this country, but of humanity as a whole?  How might respect and compassion overcome division and mistrust in our discourse and interactions?

Texts, Contexts, and Subtexts: Charlotte Perkins Gilman in Her Time

Charlotte Perkins Gilman Society CFP American Literature Association (ALA) 28th Annual Conference
May 25-28, 2017

Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s articles, letters, papers, and library underscore a central quality of her diverse and prolific career: her works were deeply engaged with the social and scientific milieus of her time. An avid reader, enthusiastic learner, and active member within her own intellectual communities, Gilman often reached out to those whose work she admired – as well as to those whose work she found lacking. Through her lectures, publications, and correspondence, Gilman impacted a broad cross-section of scholarly and literary discourses.

Latecomers: Anita Brookner Then and Now

'I think my personages could be reactivated if the times were right: I hope so' --Anita Brookner

17-18 March, 2017

Keynote speakers: Associate Professor Patricia Juliana Smith (Hofstra University) and Professor Peter McPhee (University of Melbourne)

The work of Anita Brookner occupies an ambiguous place in the literary field. Brookner has a cult status, was a Booker-Prize winner and best-selling novelist, and yet her work received what she herself deemed 'censorious' reviews and limited critical attention. Brookner's death was accompanied by conflicted accolades that appeared to celebrate her life while restating the predictable (and vexatious) reading of her identity as a lonely, single woman.
