Riverdale: a comic book turned hit TV show, a comic strip turned murder mystery, a town that is both nowhere and everywhere. Recently renewed for a fourth season, the CW’s popular campy teen drama is notable for its apparent departures from the checkout-stand digests of yore, and has a new witchy counterpart in Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, as well as a projected spin-off in the development of a Katy Keene series.

Interrogating Men: Toxic Masculinity in the Contemporary Moment

“Toxic masculinity” is a relatively new buzz phrase to capture, in the contemporary moment, problematics of male behavior and masculinist beliefs. However, the term needs interrogating if we are to fully understand its implications. What exactly is toxic masculinity? What agenda(s) does the term serve? What makes it toxic, and to whom is it toxic? Indeed, is toxic masculinity itself really a thing, or is it simply a new slogan for behaviours and beliefs that have always been a part of (too) many expressions of masculinity? What is the significance of this phrase to the study of masculinity?

The dispersion of communities of people physically displaced from their perceived ‘homeland’ to other parts of the globe has been a defining feature of the human experience. Commonly referred to as diasporas, these groups have travelled to other lands for reasons including to escape persecution, to seek a better life and to exploit economic opportunities. As a critical framework, diaspora directs our attention to the impact of relocation/dislocation on the lives and identities of affected individuals, the homelands they leave and the new places where they make their homes.

Philip Larkin: Personality, Poetry, Prose.

13-14 June 2019, Hull History Centre, Hull, UK.

Co-convened by final-year ‘Larkin-focused’ PhD researchers, Rebecca Devine (University of Hull) and Kyra Piperides Jaques (University of York).

The past few years have been particularly exciting for the Larkin scholar. With Hull – the poet’s workplace and home of thirty years – selected as UK City of Culture 2017, this undoubtedly engendered a renewed interest in not only the work of Philip Larkin, but the life of the poet as well. We expect that this will only be amplified by the successive title being handed to Coventry, Larkin’s birthplace and childhood home.
