panel on storytelling conventions for the International Conference on

not just in the traditional sense of form (poetry, drama, and prose, or
tragedy, comedy, and melodrama), but also more broadly construed in terms
of media conventions (Hollywood films, graphic novels, and oral
testimonies). How do these traditional and contemporary storytelling

How do writers and artists such St. Augustine, Macrobius, Roger Bacon,
Ranulf Higden, and others describe the globe? Do religious, scientific,
cartographical, and other ideas about the world complement or contradict
each other? Do concerns of genre and audience complicate the textual or
artistic global imaginary? What critical concepts are most useful in
analyzing representations of the world: hybridity, frontier,
cosmopolitanism, utopia, insularity? Proposals are sought for papers that
address geography, travel, cartography, and imagined worlds. Email to

AND THE ARTS (9/15/07; 3/13/08-3/14/08)

This conference focuses upon local, international and transnational
engagements with Black British literature and the arts ­ in relation to its
production, reception and cultural position. Through the multiple
disciplines of the arts, it creates a meeting point for prominent and
emerging scholars, writers and practitioners in order to explore the impact
of this field, both at home and abroad. The context is one of critical
investigation and celebration; a journey along diasporic and aesthetic routes.
