[UPDATE}

Binghamton University (SUNY) Graduate Student Organization

Interdisciplinarity has become a buzzword across the humanities; the term usually implies that scholars make use of the tools of another discipline while remaining within the boundaries of their own. The French philosopher Jacques Rancière points to the impossibility of this project, describing his work as "a-disciplinary" or "in-disciplinary." This conference seeks to reflect on the current state of work within the humanities by asking if the traditional ways of organizing disciplines are sufficient for the future of academia.

We invite talks/papers that deal with but are not limited to the following topics:

Classroom assignments relating Shakespeare to "classics" - to be compiled as a chapter in a forthcoming Ashgate companion volume

updated: 
Tuesday, January 28, 2014 - 12:11pm
Sean Keilen / University of California at Santa Cruz; Nick Moschovakis

The editors of The Ashgate Research Companion to Shakespeare and Classical Literature (forthcoming 2016) welcome brief submissions of 700 words or fewer for a multiauthored compilation of classroom assignments relating Shakespeare's drama and poetry to classical works or traditions — or, alternatively, to the idea of "classics" or "a classic." By "classics" we do not mean only texts from ancient Greece or Rome (though we do, of course, mean those). Rather, eligible "classics" in our broad sense may be found in any canon of verse, drama, narrative, or even music and visual art that has exerted large cultural influence or carried high cultural prestige — from Egypt and Israel to China, India, Japan, and beyond.

Monday, January 27, 2014 - 8:27pm
Writing from Below

A recurring symbol and theme in Western cultural production since the fifteenth-century, imagery of death and the maiden reveals a dark bond between sexuality and death. Pictures of a decaying corpse seducing a young woman, such as Hans Baldung's Death and the Maiden, became popular during the Renaissance, and have been repeated and adapted oftentimes since, the theme taken up by modern artists such as Edvard Munch and Egon Schiele, or composer Franz Schubert.
