[UPDATE] Access: Redefining Disability and Mobility Studies (March 20-21, 2015)

Tuesday, November 4, 2014 - 11:21am
Duquesne University English Graduate Organization

Inspired by our era of globalization and instantaneous communication, the Duquesne University English Department Graduate Student Conference is asking about access. As the rise of Disability Studies and Mobility Studies has provided theoretical and linguistic frameworks for defining, explaining, and challenging traditional conceptions of access, we invite considerations that historicize the concept of access and probe its contemporary resonance. Historically, who has had access? How does asking this question raise awareness of contentious spaces? How do we navigate such spaces without privileging able-bodiedness?

The Value and Challenge of the Middle Ages in C.S. Lewis' The Discarded Image Half a Century Later, CFP Deadline: 20 December

Monday, November 3, 2014 - 5:59pm
Paper Session for the Third Annual Symposium on Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Saint Louis University

It has been about half a century since C.S. Lewis' The Discarded Image was published (1964), and the time seems ripe to look into its legacy, past and ongoing. With the constantly shifting critical landscape in medieval studies, especially the recent rise in new critical perspectives (e.g. disability studies, theories of the monstrous, etc.), a past work of medieval scholarship such as Lewis' can seem like a product of its own time more than a seminal advance in medieval studies. One wonders, though, to what extent knowing about such a work may be useful at all in the ever changing, advancing field of medieval studies.

[UPDATE] [NEW DEADLINE: NOV. 30] Lines Between: Culture and Empire in the Eastern Mediterranean; Nicosia, Cyprus, 3-6 June 2015

Friday, October 31, 2014 - 10:34am
European University Cyprus and The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey

Over the centuries, the peoples and nations of the Mediterranean have been divided but also connected by the sea. Its trade routes have facilitated traffic and ideas, artistic creativity, and architecture, as well as commerce. Cultures have evolved and empires have risen and declined through processes that have impacted the histories and cultures of countries washed by the Mediterranean.
