UPDATE The Human-Animal Boundary: Exploring the Line in Philosophy and Fiction 10-11 April 2015

University of Puerto Rico - Mayaguez

The boundary between humans and non-human animals has been an integral part of philosophic discourse since antiquity, with mounting evidence of language, tool use and general cognitive abilities now leading scientists to contest its impermeability. These lines have been drawn and re-drawn in innumerable ways in imaginative literature, and the various ways in which humans perceive non-human animals have become the subject of study in various disciplines. Attempts to draw a boundary between human and nonhuman animals have involved the artistic imagination as well as philosophical reflection.

Les chemins de la tradition: myths, mythemes, and the rewriting of origins (March 13-14, 2015 - Louisiana State University)

The stories and plays of the ancients have long been an inspiration, a point de départ, for Western literature. Across the centuries, French authors use and reuse these myths, transforming them while giving them new life.

During the twelfth century, Benoit de Sainte Maure retold the Trojan War. Racine rewrote the fatal love triangle in Phèdre in the seventeenth century; Balzac recycled the King Midas myth in Eugénie Grandet two centuries later. This reappropriation of myth in literature was especially popular in the twentieth century, whether with Camus's Le mythe de Sisyphe, Anouilh's Antigone, or Cocteau's Orphée.

Samuel Hynes identifies the Great War as "the great imaginative event": "not a falsification of reality, but […] the accepted interpretation of the war, repeated in texts written by authors who did not experience the war, but who inherited its myth." With the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War just behind us, and the bicentenary of the end of the Napoleonic Wars just ahead, this panel explores the ways in which the 'great wars' of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries are (re)interpreted and (re)imagined, both by their contemporaries and, perhaps more pressingly, by ours.

We invite paper proposals for a panel the H.D.

The focus of the panel, "New Approaches to H.D." is open-ended, and we will consider work focusing on any aspect of H.D. and/or her circle, although the interdisciplinary emphasis of the conference (which expressly embraces literature's relationship to other arts and disciplines) means that an interdisciplinary angle might be especially appropriate.
