deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 26, 2020

Clio: A Journal of Literature, History, and the Philosophy of History, a double-blind peer-reviewed international interdisciplinary journal, publishes scholarly essays that explore the connections between history, literature, and the arts. Humans understand themselves and their cultures, even create themselves and their cultures, through stories. Sometimes we call those stories “history,” and sometimes we call them “literature.” Clio is interested in the interconnectedness of these two disciplines, as well as the philosophical work that supports these kinds of inquiries.

UC San Diego's Second Annual Graduate Conference: "Movement"

UC San Diego Department of Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

UC San Diego’s Department of Literature is excited to announce their second annual graduate conference. This year’s theme, “Movement,” embraces the complexities of the potential for, and results of, movement. The term “movement” has been at the center of aesthetics, literary history, and philosophy for centuries. From a movement like the Young Hegelians, that criticized the political establishment and capitalist modes of production, to the Aesthetic Movement, that created “art for art’s sake,” movements have shaped critical thinking in a variety of fields. In the social sciences, social, horizontal, vertical, and spatial mobility have been analyzed for decades.
