MARGIN reads Messy Bodies

Last year, in our end-of-the-year symposium focusing on the afterlife of Ovid in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, we found ourselves confronting surprisingly queer, surprisingly metamorphosed, messy bodies, bodies that frequently demanded decidedly messy methodological engagements, between disciplinary categories or at their margins. With all this in mind, we continue our group exploration of the body with this year’s symposium.

Of bodies changed to other forms I tell; 

You Gods, who have yourselves wrought every change, 

Inspire my enterprise and lead my lay 

In one continuous song from nature’s first 

Remote beginnings to our modern times. 

- Ovid, Metamorphoses, Book I 

 

To recognize in paranoia a distinctively rigid relation to temporality, at once anticipatory and retroactive, averse above all to surprise, is also to glimpse the lineaments of other possibilities.

Conference English Literature in the World: From Manuscript to Digital (May 7-10, Lisbon, Portugal)

English Literature has been able to reinvent itself along new pathways, from the age of the manuscript to the digital era. In the last decades, the digital technology has changed the paradigms involving both the reading strategies and the analysis of literary texts: among others, the relation between writer and reader; the publication in digital platforms; “distant reading”; the exploration of the image; the abundance of information; the access to the original texts. This enormous change has originated an interdisciplinary reevaluation of many of the previous paths, as well as the launching of new focuses of reflection.

The Politics of Pleasure: Social Networking in the Middle Ages

updated: 
Sunday, January 7, 2018 - 4:01pm
UC Santa Barbara Medieval Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Social networking in the Middle Ages, much as today, was a means for forging political relationships and alliances. From tournaments to banquets to bedrooms, these encounters crossed geographic and national borders, drawing together a variety of figures with distinct agendas and desires. The planning committee for UC Santa Barbara’s Medieval Studies Graduate Conference seeks papers that explore the varied and complex ways in which pleasure, leisure, competition, entertainment, friendly feelings, and play facilitated the very serious and often obnoxious business of politics - relaxing boundaries to allow for their renegotiation.
