THE FANTASTIC NOW: RESEARCH IN THE FANTASTIC IN THE 21st CENTURY

Friday, October 23, 2015 - 3:10am
Association for Research in the Fantastic

There is hardly any subject in contemporary literary, cultural, and media studies that is discussed and researched with as much controversy as "the fantastic". Since theoretical debate on the subject was initiated in the second half of the 20th century, largely by Tzvetan Todorov and Roger Callois, research on the fantastic has become a globally relevant, interdisciplinary, and rapidly developing field of scholarship. The field's significance is reflected in numerous scholarly journals, associations, organizations, research projects and institutions which have focused on the fantastic.

Thursday, October 22, 2015 - 3:14pm
Seismopolite Journal of Art and Politics

Our issue 13 aims to shed light on the political function of art in diverse contexts in Southeast Asia. Among other things, the issue will discuss the formation of Southeast Asian contemporary art scenes, and of a regional conscience in contemporary art: In particular, the implications and consequences for artists' ability to reflect and influence their local political situation, and for the possibility of meaningful cooperation between artists and art scenes. As a part of this investigation, the issue will also discuss topics such as the (potential) function of art in public spaces, and how the contemporary art economy influences the political agency of art and the freedom of expression in Southeast Asian societies.

Making a Scene - BWWC - June 2-5, 2016

Thursday, October 22, 2015 - 11:44am
24th Annual Meeting of the British Women Writers Conference

The theme of the 24th annual meeting of the British Women Writers Conference is "Making a Scene," and we're excited to welcome papers that play with the elasticity of this phrase vis-à-vis eighteenth- and nineteenth-century writings by women. From the sublime panoramas of "Beachy Head' and the scandalous rehearsals of Lover's Vows in Mansfield Park to the landscapes of Helen Huntingdon and the ekphrastic poems of Michael Field, eighteenth- and nineteenth-century literature by British women writers frequently makes a scene as it considers landscape, theatrical performance and the creation or representation of visual art.
