Migration(s): Body, Word, Spirit

Migration(s) of various sorts—of people, information, political, religious, and cultural

movements—have long transformed the periods, places, and paradigms in which they

occur. Recent scholarship has underlined the fundamental importance of migrations in

the medieval and early modern periods. Intrinsically interesting in their original

context, these historic migrations also provide much-needed perspective on the

migrations our world is currently experiencing.

CFP: The Handbook to Horror Literature: Select chapters needed

updated: 
Wednesday, April 5, 2017 - 5:22pm
Kevin Corstorphine and Laura Kremmel
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 30, 2017

Most handbooks on the subject of horror focus specifically on film, whereas books on the literary manifestations of horror tend to be bound to the idea of the “Gothic.” The current field of Gothic studies grows out of the study of Romanticism, and refers specifically to a late eighteenth-century genre, but has also come to denote a critical approach to literature, film, and culture, drawing on psychoanalysis, post structural criticism, feminist and queer theory. These perspectives are all to be included here, but the book responds to a growing sense that “horror” is itself a worthwhile focus of analysis.

Practicing Patience in the Middle Ages

2018 New Chaucer Society Congress
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 24, 2017

Proposals for short presentations exploring the nature of medieval patience and its performance in secular and devotional contexts are invited for a session at the New Chaucer Society Congress at the University of Toronto from July 10-15, 2018.  Patience is a complex and even paradoxical virtue. It intersects with agency and, to borrow Sara Ahmed’s term, willfulness, but it is also defined by restraint. It can describe an immediate response and/or a sustained practice. It involves affect as well as intellect. It exists on a continuum (someone can have no, little, or much patience), yet it exhibits a tipping point (when it runs out or is lost).
