What comes after extinction? Our predominant understanding of extinction today relates to natural species extinctions caused largely by human actions. But in the twenty-first century categorical distinctions between humans and nonhumans or culture and nature are no longer tenable—if they ever really were. Indeed as Darwin was not even the first to note, mass extinction events preceded the appearance of humans on the planet.

Medicine of Words: Literature, Medicine, and Theology in the Middle Ages/St Anne's College, Oxford, 11-12th September 2015

full name / name of organization: 
Dr Daniel McCann/Oxford University

Words, whether in poetry or prose, have a power beyond their meaning. They are capable not simply of expression but also of action; they can hurt or they can heal. Throughout the Middle Ages the potency of words, their effect and force upon the mind, body, and soul is explored and engaged with, poured over and focused upon not simply by the arts of grammar and rhetoric, but by poetry and theology, by medicine and psychology. Medieval texts are pieces of linguistic craft and intention, their words chosen and arranged with a purpose in mind. Poems in this period can be as crafted as theological treatises, their meters and rhymes as intentional and purpose driven as any medical instrument.

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

updated: 
Tuesday, November 4, 2014 - 11:21am
full name / name of organization: 
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

updated: 
Monday, November 3, 2014 - 5:59pm
full name / name of organization: 
Paper Session for the Third Annual Symposium on Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Saint Louis University
contact email: 

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.
