CALL FOR PAPERS ON INDIGENOUS AUTONOMY PROJECTS

Indigenous peoples from around the world have adopted the idea of autonomy in an attempt to engage with modernity on their own terms. What is remarkable is the range and diversity of the notion of autonomy, from treaty-based territorial autonomy to non-territorial, cultural rights based autonomy projects.

Monster Studies and Pedagogy: Rocky Mountain MLA Special Topics Session 2016

Wednesday, December 9, 2015 - 11:55am
Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association

In response to the question, "What do composition instructors do to engage disinterested students?" academia has one response gaining rapid popularity: "Monster Studies." Intellectual interest in monsters is not new. With high profile academics like Jeffrey Jerome Cohen and Kyle Bishop addressing "Monster Studies," educators exploring monsters find success in engaging students with (pop)culturally relevant examinations of literature and media. Taking its origin from the Latin monstrare, which means "to reveal," monsters are physical embodiments of cultural anxieties.

'Romanticism on Edge / Edgy Romanticism' - a one day symposium on 9th April 2016

updated: 
Wednesday, December 9, 2015 - 2:22am
Dr Andrew McInnes, Edge Hill University

The traditional boundaries of Romanticism - six male poets; the definite articles of Romantic image, imagination and ideology; an implicit focus on Englishness - have been comprehensively contested to transform the discipline into the study of Romanticisms, including novels, plays, polemic, periodicals and print culture alongside a widening canon of poetry; questioning the ideology of the Romantic Ideology; and expanding borders spatially, to include Four Nations, archipelagic, Europe-wide, transatlantic and postcolonial approaches, and temporally, beyond the 1790s and early nineteenth century to imagine a Romantic century running from ca. 1750-1850.
