Sensing Nature, Panel at New Chaucer Society, London, 10-15 July 2016

updated: 
Sunday, March 8, 2015 - 11:04am
New Chaucer Society

This panel invites consideration of how medieval literary works theorize the communication between nature and the senses and illuminate central human and artistic questions—for instance, how we come to know our world and how sensory experience of the natural world influences the poetic process. Panelists may explore how late medieval poets generate an implicit theory of the senses through a range of topics, including the music of the spheres, the relationship between the elements and the senses, the way sense perception promotes interconnection between humankind and nature, the tension between nature and artifice, and sensing nature in dream visions.

Submissions are made through the NCS website at

REIMAGINING MARGINALITY IN A GLOBAL CONTEXT

updated: 
Friday, March 6, 2015 - 2:58pm
Cameroon English Language and Literature Association - CELLA

The pluralistic, sophisticated and technocrazy nature of contemporary existence has blurred concepts like marginality and minority that are inherent in human existence. Because technology seems to have melted several existential boundaries, and because theories of global citizenry give the impression of free access to movement, the sense of being marginal is almost waning. However, the network of global philosophy and technological connectivity are themselves apparent mechanisms of marginalization especially in the postcolonial context. Postcolonial theorists, intellectuals and writers have taken the intellectual, political and moral authority to challenge representational claims made by dominant Western/imperial cultures.
