The Future of Human(ity) 22-24 July 2016

Wednesday, October 21, 2015 - 9:09pm
CICAS: Center for Interdisciplinary Collaboration in the Arts and Sciences

CICAS, the Center for Interdisciplinary Collaboration in the Arts and Sciences, invites proposals for its inaugural conference on the theme of The Future of Humanity. In a world where, on the one hand, we are informed that the planet cannot support a human life worth living a century from now and, on the other, that the first human to live to be 1000 years old may have already been born, no topic is more urgent for humans to debate through the lenses of their different disciplines. What is the future of the human species? What does it mean to be "human"? Or, as Richard Grusin (2015) suggests in The Nonhuman Turn, are we experiencing a different kind of "humanity" in the twenty-first century?

[UPDATE] Habitats and Hazards (11/30/15;2/19/16)

Natures 2016: an interdisciplinary environmental humanities conference

Our theme invites exploration of the habitats and/or hazards of any aspect of humanities studies. Papers may explore the conference theme as applied to the texts of humanities studies (e.g. the hazardous spaces of "Jane Eyre"), or the various crises that threaten the material world now or in the past (e.g. popular culture depictions of pollution). Presenters are invited to (re)frame the terms of the theme in ways relevant to their projects.
Topics may include, but are not limited to:
•Close readings of texts (written, physical, and/or visual), from any period
•Domesticity, urbanity, public/private, setting in literature, history, art, and popular culture
•Pollution, scarcity, competition over resources

Boundaries and Intersections: Space, Time, Discipline – Proposals by 12/18/15; Conference 2/25/16-2/27/16

Tuesday, October 20, 2015 - 12:34pm
UW-Madison MadLit Graduate Student Conference

Boundaries and intersections -- two contrasting metaphors and yet not quite a binary. On the one hand, these words spatially remind us of Venn diagrams: two bound circles with a space of intersection where they overlap. On the other hand, intersections can be places of traffic, movement over time, streams of cars or pedestrians crossing boundaries. Spatial overlap or temporal crossing--the stability of categories or their rupture. The humanities are constantly defined and redefined by the churning of boundaries and intersections.
