Virginia Woolf, Europe and Peace: 28th Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf

Friday, November 17, 2017 - 2:37pm
University of Kent
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 1, 2017

Marking 100 years since the end of the First World War and 80 years since the publication of Three Guineas, the 28th Annual International Conference on Virginia Woolf invites papers addressing the dual theme of Europe and Peace. From the ‘prying’, ‘insidious’ ‘fingers of the European War’ that Septimus Warren Smith would never be free of in Mrs Dalloway to Woolf’s call to ‘think peace into existence’ during the Blitz in ‘Thoughts on Peace in an Air Raid’, questions of war and peace pervade her writings.

       The renewed interest in exploring the urban theme in the arenas of culture studies and the constructs of literary and artistic creativity, has quite often coincided with the moments of crises, of major changes in the conceptualizing of historical processes and of the human experience and consciousness of environmental questions, of belonging and alienation.

Global Perspectives on Early America at IAAS 2018

Friday, November 17, 2017 - 11:15am
Irish Association for American Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 15, 2017

We seek proposals on early American literature and history for the Irish Association for American Studies’ 2018 Conference, “Foreign Bodies and Native Sons,” at the University College Dublin (April 27-28). Though the recent U.S. presidential election thrived on the division of “foreign bodies” and “native sons,” this panel aims to analyze who and what constituted “America” prior to the creation of the United States. These two categories offer especially productive lenses into early American history and literature: how does coloniality trouble the terms foreign and native? how did the New World alter the bodies and minds of its disparate peoples? in what ways did early Americans renegotiate their own cultural and national identities?
