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

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.

The Other Side of Translation is concerned with rethinking medieval translation in terms of Lacanian understandings of the signifier, in the wake of Emma Campbell's and Robert Mills's recent edited collection Rethinking Medieval Translation: Ethics, Politics, Theory. Our session seeks papers that address medieval translation in practical and/or theoretical terms, which might include translation's analogy to the transference, untranslatability as "the insistence of the letter" in the structuring of the Real, and Lacanian readings of the specificities of medieval culture (macaronic texts and anthologies, late medieval Britain's trilingual culture, etc.).

TRANSITIONS

Our theme for the 2015 interdisciplinary SWES conference is "Transitions" and what that means to the disciplines we work in - across English, the Humanities, Arts, Business, Politics, Sciences, Social spheres, and Technology. The concept is often relevant to scholars in many fields and especially to those whose work straddles the boundaries of one or more disciplines.

Definition: We talk about transitions between time periods, technologies, genres, social movements, sciences, mathematics, design and how big and small ideas permeate movements in society. What this theme should then encourage is the ability to demonstrate analysis and hold discourse on topics related to transitions applicable to any and all disciplines.

Since the early 1980s, the medieval has proven to be a fertile source of narrative concept, artwork and play structure in popular board and card game culture. In recent years, games with medieval subject matter such as Carcassonne, Dominion and Shadows Over Camelot have increasingly graced the top of European and American board game award tables.
