After Chichele: Intellectual and Cultural Dynamics of the English Church, 1443-1517 (28-30 June 2017)

updated: 
Friday, February 26, 2016 - 7:21am
full name / name of organization: 
Faculty of English, University of Oxford

An international conference organised by the Faculty of English, University of Oxford. This event builds on the success of the 2009 Oxford conference, After Arundel: Religious Writing in Fifteenth-Century England, which resulted in a book of essays (ed. by Vincent Gillespie and Kantik Ghosh) that vigorously interrogated the nature of religious and intellectual culture in England in the long fifteenth century. After Chichele adopts a similar investigative and interdisciplinary approach. The period has been chosen precisely because the inner workings of English intellectual and religious life during these years have proved challengingly resistant to the formation of grand critical narratives.

English: The Journal of the English Association

English: The Journal of the English Association invites contributions to a special issue on literature, landscape and the environment.

In the years since the publication of seminal texts such as Carson's Silent Spring, and with environmental concerns never more pressing, ecocriticism has become firmly established in literary studies as a way to think about the challenges facing writers and their readers. Moreover, literary critical engagement with the environment has been enriched in recent years through intersectional work with fields as diverse as disability studies, spatial studies, gender theory, and post-humanism.

Animals in Literature and Film, MMLA 2016

MMLA
contact email: 

This year's MMLA Animals in Literature and Film panel invites papers engaging in tensions of "human" and "animal" found within a variety of cultural textualities in the broad field of animal studies. Since "animality" has often historically been equated with "primitive," in a derogatory sense, and "human" with the rise of civilization and modernity, or the westernization of the world and globalization, this panel seeks papers that disrupt these categorizations through the examination of a wide range of perspectives on animals in diverse texts. To that end, we seek papers analyzing all types of "texts," broadly understood, from mythological sources and artistic representations to music, film, and literature.
