Narratives of Place in Literature, Film, and Folklore 3-4 March, 2016

English Department, University of Hawai'i at Hilo, USA

Narratives of place link people and geographical location with a cultural imaginary through folk beliefs, literature, and visual narration. The social and cultural spatialities of place have ancient roots. Drawing from the narrative heritage of myths and legends, creation chants and folktales, and literary classics like Rob Roy (1817) and Heart of Darkness (1899), contemporary literature often frames narratives with specific places. Geographic location is also a prominent element in autobiographical writing, such as Limerick in Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes (1996) and the Pacific Crest Trail in Cheryl Strayed's Wild (2013), and their film adaptations.

Public Intellectuals Lecture Series (Fall 2015)

updated: 
Tuesday, May 12, 2015 - 12:04pm
Carleton University

The Public Intellectuals Lecture Series has just wrapped up a successful spring lineup featuring four fantastic, well attended lectures. We are now planning a second series for the fall.

The Public Intellectuals Lecture Series aims to create a bridge between scholars in the Arts and the general public. While the complex ideas these scholars help develop have important, real world applications to the way we understand and interact with each other, they are often couched in jargon and confined to the journals and lecture halls of the academic sphere. This lecture series will offer a venue and format in which scholars can present these ideas to the public in an accessible manner.

Communities of Practice: Toward a Local and Global Digital Humanities

Cogent Arts & Humanities welcomes submissions to a special collection of articles exploring the evolving field of digital humanities.

Digital technology has forever changed the way humanists conduct research and engage with the world. It is now common for scholars to share research online with an increasingly global audience yet local resources continue to animate and inform so much digital humanities research.

Women’s Studies Panel, Session II, SAMLA Conference

What is the political significance of embodiment? In this panel, we are looking for a broad array of papers which consider the stakes of embodiment in contemporary culture. What does it mean to have a body that is contested, illegible, unreadable, unexpected? What is at stake in claiming such a body? How are writers addressing such bodies? This panel encourages papers and presentations which consider the portrayal, evocation, and consideration of such bodies in fiction, nonfiction, and cultural artifacts broadly. By June 15, 2015, please submit a 250-300 word abstract, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Monica Miller, monica.miller@lmc.gatech.edu.
