It would be difficult to disentangle fully the various strands of religious reform in early modern England from the educational, aesthetic, and philosophical movements that fall under the broad term 'humanism'.  Nevertheless, the relationship between religious reform and new developments in various humanist projects was not always peaceful. The tensions between humanism and religious reform provoke many questions:  Where were the lines of fracture in the symbiotic relationship between religious reform and the humanisms of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in England? Did religious reform restrict the development of humanism in England, or did it promote a new flourishing of humanism?

Listening to Trauma: Insights & Actions

The study of trauma, Judith Herman points out, has a history of “episodic amnesia.” Knowledge gained is periodically forgotten and must be persistently reclaimed. After almost 15 years of combat in the Middle East and of rising attention to a broad range of stressful events, American culture, its media, academics and clinicians have become increasingly responsive to the diverse nature and complexity of traumatic experience.

On the Edge: Theories on the Frontier. International Conference, 20-21 Oct 2016

The frontier emerged as an important critical concept for an understanding of American history over a hundred years ago, and its status has changed from a celebrated catchphrase to explain away the perplexities of American identity, through an F-word not tolerated in the progressive circles, leading finally to a rehabilitated, more inclusive use. Its variations include terms such as periphery, edge, and borderland, and the very proliferation of the term suggests that its provocative character still inspires critics and artists in the Americas today. The purpose of this conference is to explore the borderlands between critical theory and other ways of interpretative thinking, such as art.

[UPDATE] Women & Work in Literature CFP - abstracts now due June 10

updated: 
Tuesday, May 3, 2016 - 4:07pm
Pacific Ancient & Modern Language Association (PAMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2016

Session Description:
How do writers represent the work of being women—where “work” is defined broadly to encompass not only paid labor inside and outside the home, but also the work of performing femininity and domesticity? How do writers address social assumptions about who should be performing work, and for what purpose? How do race, class, sexuality and national identity affect women’s ability to define both the meaning of their work and their ability to engage in work?

[UPDATE] CFP: Early Modern Utopian Literature

updated: 
Tuesday, May 3, 2016 - 2:20pm
Southeast Renaissance Conference, SAMLA Affiliate

2016 marks the 500th anniversary of the first printing of Thomas More's Utopia, the text that created and provided the name for its own genre. Since the appearance of More's text, utopias have been imagined as unreal realities and worlds where people exist according to a specific vision of an author, whose aim might be justice, art, or an imagined reality with a specific agenda.

We request abstracts that address any aspect of early modern utopianism. Please submit 250-300 word abstracts along with a brief bio or a one page C.V. by May 15, 2016 to: Dr. Ruth McIntyre, rmcinty1@kennesaw.edu.

This section of the academic journal "Sinestesieonline" is open to contributions about theatre and performing arts in all historical ages, forms and variations, in English, Italian and foreign languages.

"Il Parlaggio" is the name created by Gabriele d'Annunzio for the amphitheatre in Vittoriale – a place of empathy, a cradle of emotions, a crossroads of cultures, a connection between antiquity and contemporaneity, an emblem of the "neverending show".

Panelists, The Anthropocene, SLSA (Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts) Conference, Atlanta, GA, Nov. 3-6, 2016

updated: 
Tuesday, May 3, 2016 - 10:51am
SLSA (Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts)

Seeking SLSA members interested in putting together a panel or roundtable on the Anthropocene for the 2016 meeting in Atlanta. The theme of the conference is "creativity," including the theme of "creating environments." That is exactly what the Anthropocene names: The creation of a distinctively human-marked form of the planet's environment. The panel might offer analysis of the history, textuality, and criticism of the Anthropocene. More specifically, the idea of the Anthropocene involves posthumanist notions of creativity, in which the collective actions of our species produce a form or a reality without a creator or a singular agent. We might discuss the Anthropocene as a kind of hive or swarm creation, then.
