What are the stakes of reading arabic poetics in america at the present historical and political moment? How does the reading of arabic poetics--and of arabic texts considered in the broadest possible sense--relate to the legacies of colonialism, on the one hand, and the demand for and fact of translation, on the other?

Peripheries of Modernism – MSA 16 (Nov 6-9, 2014, Pittsburgh, PA)

Thursday, May 1, 2014 - 11:59am
Lauren Benjamin/ University of Michigan

Since at least the early 1990s, the transnational turn in Modernist Studies has necessitated a re-thinking of Modernism's traditional boundaries. Propelled by feminist reevaluations of the canon, as well as minority discourses about visibility, New Modernist Studies ask us to think more broadly about Modernism and modernity. This panel seeks to investigate the ways in which various scholars navigate the peripheries of Modernism. For this panel, "peripheries" are broadly defined as texts, movements, or authors previously or currently unincorporated into the traditional canon. How do authors' national identifications relate to other identities, religious, ethnic, or cultural?

Writing Communities: People as Place

Falmouth University PG/ECR Conference July 29th – 30th 2014 (£25)

Call for Papers

Researching place often means researching communities. Landscapes are peopled. History has a living voice. Researchers not only work with communities, but also write them—creatively and academically.

This Postgraduate / Early Career Researcher conference invites papers around the pleasures and tensions of writing with/from community engagement. Abstracts from creative writers, artists, historians, geographers and social scientists are particularly welcome, as well as from any PG/ECR whose research involves communities.

Discussions could include:

Reconstruction, Conservation, Restoration: Reconciling the Past through Word and Image

Sunday, April 27, 2014 - 6:20pm
University of Dundee

'Renaissance literary works are no longer regarded either as a fixed set of texts…that contain their own determinate meanings or as a stable set of reflections of historical facts that lie beyond them…rather they are made up and constantly redrawn by artists, audiences, and readers. These collective social constructions on the one hand define the range of aesthetic possibilities within a given representational mode and, on the other, link that mode to the complex network of institutions, practices and beliefs that constitute the culture as a whole.'
