We welcome contributions that examine the turn to ontology in the humanities and the social sciences. What does the shift to ontology signify? What is it purporting to correct or overcome? What is its relation to prior turns (such as the linguistic turn and the cultural turn)? Is the turn to ontology an attempt to liberate continental philosophy from its infatuation with language and power, from its obsession with mediation, relationality, and subjectivity? What are the politics of this turn to ontology? Is it more receptive to non-European thought and to the nonhuman? What kind of philosophy or literary theory emerges when ontology is taken as the starting point?  

Topics of interest could include:

‘History Repeats’

Historical Novel Society Australasia 2019 Conference

25-27 October 2019, Rydalmere Campus, Western Sydney University.

Academic Stream: Sunday 27 October

On the final day of the HNSA conference, we will bring together postgraduates, academics, and other interested scholars to consider the complexities of the genre of historical fiction and its readership. What counts as an historical novel is increasingly up for grabs: in terms of period (what counts as ‘the past’—and how past is past?), and the porosity of the boundaries of genre (viz. how historical is historical fantasy?).
