Thursday, October 15, 2015 - 4:02am
Department of English, East West University Dhaka, Bangladesh

The all- incorporating yet inequitable disposition of the global marketplace, facilitated by the neoliberal ideologies of profit maximization, have impacted substantially on all academic disciplines in increasingly conspicuous ways. Consequently, English studies has found itself precariously poised between the values it has traditionally transmitted to its graduates and the instrumental demands of the marketplace. There is friction between, on the one hand, the humanistic outlook that it has cultivated for generations now, and, on the other, the dictates of the job market and the relentless pressure exerted by forces of capitalism on the education sector.

CFP: Temporal Discombobulations: Time and the Experience of the Gothic

Gothic Temporalities Group in conjunction with the University of Surrey

22-24 August 2016 University of Surrey United Kingdom

Our experience of the Gothic is one founded in time. Whether it is of a past that will not or cannot die, multiple presents that can never resolved, or infinite futures that can never be realised it speaks of a temporal excess that refuses to be contained.
