 Ireland was, as Robert Young writes, England’s first and always exceptional colony. But it was far from the only one. Its unique colonial status has yielded productive scholarship addressing its anomalous integration into the colonial world. While this scholarship has resulted in some excellent work on Ireland / India relations and an influential volume on the ‘green and black Atlantic’ that performed a valuable intervention in addressing the African dimensions of the Irish world, both Irish and African literary scholarship have largely neglected affiliations between these literary worlds. The organisers of this panel invite papers that will consider literary and cultural intersections between Ireland and select African nations.

Jenny Gottstein, the Director of Games at The GoGame, a company that builds interactive experiences and high-tech adventures around the world recently remarked that, "Studying Arts & Humanities engenders a healthy sense of curiosity and wonder - not only with regards to how the world actually is, but how it might be. Some might call those who chose this path of study ‘dreamers’ but the truth is, they are ‘futurists.’ And having produced interactive games for thousands of companies around the world, I can tell you, the best ones are powered by futurists."

Passion, Power, and Rhetoric: Latin Influences on Early Drama

 

The twenty-fourth International Medieval Congress (IMC) will take place in Leeds, UK, from 3-6 July 2017.  The IMC seeks to provide an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of all aspects of Medieval Studies. However, every year, the IMC chooses a special thematic strand which – for 2017 – is ‘Otherness’. This focus has been chosen for its wide application across all centuries and regions and its impact on all disciplines devoted to this epoch.

The book is aimed at literature and art history students, as well as at academics and practitioners, who are interested in mapping out intersections between literature, the visual arts, and their respective academic disciplines. The editor is seeking twenty to thirty newly commissioned chapters on any literary or art historical era.

In her study of L. M. Montgomery (1874-1942) in the “Extraordinary Canadians” series, Canadian author Jane Urquhart invokes comparisons of L. M. Montgomery’s life and work to that of her near-contemporary American peers, Edith Wharton (1862-1937), Willa Cather (1873-1947), and Mary Wilkins Freeman (1852-1930), among others. While the transatlantic connection among women writers is receiving increasing critical attention, the literary relationships among American and Canadian women writers offer a relatively recent area for scholarly explorations of the influences and alignments crossing North America.

Guest edited by Jonathan Wright and Susan Flynn (London College of Communication, University of the Arts, London)

 Our increased attention with new forms of citizenship, changing social landscapes and emergent sets of social relations suggest that Cultural Studies and its analyses of cultural products must rapidly evolve in order to stay relevant.  Our visions of the future seem to be replete with fears of new social realities; new media technologies call us to question privacy, location, marginality, the ability to relate meaningfully with others, and the unequal distribution of material wealth. Are Cultural Studies equipped to deal with the theorization of these new realities?
