Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) 2015 Conference
July 30-August 2, 2015, Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Conference Theme:
Je Me Souviens / I Remember

Quebec's simple but provocative motto, which is not without controversy over interpretation, caught our imagination — both metaphorically and geographically. It invokes thoughts of remembering — remembering theatre at its best, when its immediacy and humanness is embraced, remembering our past and how it points to the future, and remembering our power to instigate change.

These days the word "craft" gets attached to a lot—from cocktails to crochet, 3D printing to upcycled t-shirts, handmade paper to handmade pickles. And this trend only appears to be growing as craft is closely connected to the DIY movement: a wide-ranging, ever-expanding, and sometimes controversial field of work and play.

How have new technologies transformed literary and cultural histories? How do they enable critical practices of scholars working in and outside of digital humanities? Have decades of digital studies enhanced, altered, or muted the project to recover and represent more diverse histories of writers, thinkers, and artists positioned differently by gender, race, ethnicity, sexualities, social class and/or global location?

"(Im)Materiality in English and Welsh Medieval Culture" (Kalamazoo 2015)

updated: 
Thursday, September 11, 2014 - 7:53pm
full name / name of organization: 
Daniel Helbert

The recent trend in medieval literary studies to emphasize inanimate objects and materiality as a means of contextualizing or de-emphasizing human and humanist activities has encouraged two, perhaps unintended, consequences: 1) The segregation of 'Humanist' philosophical interpretations of the world and its contents/inhabitants (metaphysics, Marxism, psychoanalysis, etc.) from 'non-human' oriented epistemologies (Eco-Criticism, Object Oriented Ontology, etc.); and 2) the lack of distinguishment between human-inanimate object relationships within a culturally homogenous setting and human-inanimate object relationships within a culturally mixed setting.
