Modalities: Politics and Poetics, 18-19 Sept 2015

Rice University English Graduate Symposium

This is a symposium about –alities. Now commonplace, terms like temporality, governmentality, positionality, and so on have made their way into literary studies and the humanities more broadly. The broadening of scholarship beyond the human now underway requires that we take a fresh look at the poetics and politics of interpretation, whether or not our scholarship studies the nonhuman explicitly. At the precise moment at which we are being told to look "outside," we need to get clear again: what is this outside? Is it thinkable? Can we say what we have been saying in such a climate?

North Carolina State University

We are seeking essays for an edited collection titled Rethinking Globalization and Spatial Scale. The goal of the volume is to bring together interdisciplinary research on globalization spanning the humanities and social sciences that foregrounds theoretical and methodological conceptualizations of scale—how people, capital, goods, material infrastructure, ideas, and power aggregate along or slide among different degrees or levels of attachment, from personal to local to national to transnational.

Whose (French) Renaissance? - RSA 2016 (Boston, March 31 - April 2, 2016) - Deadline June 3, 2015

Renaissance Society of America

Complicating the notion of the 'French Renaissance,' this panel seeks papers that explore the dynamic relationship between Italian artists and their French patrons, audiences, and counterparts in the fifteenth- and sixteenth-century courts of Charles VIII, Francis I, Henry II and Henry IV. We are interested in investigations into the ways in which these artists realized their royal commissions by participating in, subverting, and creating artistic dialogues. Rather than simply importing visual language, humanist discourses, and artistic debates into French contexts, Italian artists and their French patrons mediated different processes of material, contextual, and formal translations.
