[UPDATE] International Conference Relations and Networks in Indian Ocean Writing November 26th-27th 2015

updated: 
Monday, May 11, 2015 - 3:53pm
Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain

The Indian Ocean needs to be regarded as a unifying element, connecting peoples and events across the ocean and at the same time a divisive element that fragments and distances communities through space and time. It is a mine of cultural experience with multiple connections that link the countries of its western shores with the Indian subcontinent. We invite papers that focus on the relations and networks that bind the communities that inhabit the shores of the Indian Ocean and which generate debate on notions of integration and fragmentation in Indian Ocean writing.

The study day we organized on April 21st 2015 investigated the theme "Order and Disorder" in different fields. Several participants were enthusiastic about the theme and presented an important selection of papers which covered such panels as reflections on order and disorder in the literary imagination, innovation and education, formation and information, social and political order in the contemporary world.
As a theme for an international symposium, we need to pursue the investigation into these fields but also extend it to other spheres such as art and linguistics.

Waiting for Utopia: Ireland and the Utopian Impulse, Nov. 20-21, 2015 (Submission deadline: Jun 1, 2015)

Monday, May 11, 2015 - 5:35am
University of Caen Lower Normandy, France

However one chooses to look at it, Utopia has a natural inclination towards unrealizable representations. If therefore "Utopia is meta-Utopia" (Robert Nozick), Ireland and Irish culture might still seem to many to occupy the unrepresentable, to be that primary u-topos, a blank spot that successive conjurors of nations have struggled to sell to their own followers, let alone to the rest of the world... ("Of my nation? What ish my Nation? …Who talks of my Nation?" Henry V).
