This is a symposium about –alities. Now commonplace, terms like temporality, governmentality, positionality, and so on have made their way into literary studies and the humanities more broadly. The broadening of scholarship beyond the human now underway requires that we take a fresh look at the poetics and politics of interpretation, whether or not our scholarship studies the nonhuman explicitly. At the precise moment at which we are being told to look "outside," we need to get clear again: what is this outside? Is it thinkable? Can we say what we have been saying in such a climate?
We are seeking essays for an edited collection titled Rethinking Globalization and Spatial Scale. The goal of the volume is to bring together interdisciplinary research on globalization spanning the humanities and social sciences that foregrounds theoretical and methodological conceptualizations of scale—how people, capital, goods, material infrastructure, ideas, and power aggregate along or slide among different degrees or levels of attachment, from personal to local to national to transnational.

The House in the Mind: Architectural Space and the Imagination
A conference to be held at Wadham College, Oxford
Wednesday 16 – Thursday 17 March 2016
From its use in classical and medieval arts of memory to its presence in the work of contemporary artists and writers, the house has been a recurrent, even haunting image. In recent art and literature, it has been used as a symbol with a wide variety of social and political resonances, but also has intimate links with the creative process, exploring memory, imagination and the interactions between them. It is here, in particular, that there are striking consonances with medieval and early modern writing influenced by the arts of memory.
