The New York Public Library is pleased to offer Short Term Research Fellowships to support scholars from outside the New York metropolitan area engaged in graduate-level, post-doctoral, and independent research. Individuals needing to conduct on-site research in the Library's special collections to support projects in the humanities, business and the arts are welcome to apply. Preference is given to scholars whose work is based on materials in the NYPL research collections, especially when those materials are unique; fellowships are normally not granted to scholars who live within commuting distance of the library.

Dirty Talk:The Forms and Language of Pleasure
The 11th Annual Graduate Conference on Language and Literature (MadLit)
at the University of Wisconsin-Madison // February 26-28, 2015w

Dirty talk. Guilty pleasure. Darkest desire. Our everyday discourse is littered with phrases that shun or shame the pleasurable. Yet seeking pleasure, as fig- ures from Chaucer to Freud have argued, is a basic human instinct. Scholarship across a variety of fields has gravitated toward humanity's complex relationship with pleasure.

Oxford English Graduate Conference, 'Value', 5 June 2015

updated: 
Saturday, November 29, 2014 - 3:09pm
University of Oxford

'What's aught but as 'tis valued?'

William Shakespeare, Troilus and Cressida, II.ii, 53

In times of austerity, it is more than ever essential that what and how we value, and the far-reaching effects of any such valuation, be closely examined. The need for such attention has become particularly urgent within universities, where recent reductions of funding have sparked a sharp increase of debate over 'the value of the Humanities'. With that in mind, the Oxford English Faculty Graduate Conference 2015 invites papers on all aspects of 'value', as a concept that has, and will always inspire great passion, and great controversy.

III Inaugural Conference: Re-visioning Space(s), Time and Bodies

9-11 April, 2015: Main Conference
8 April, 2015: 1-day Writing and Publishing Workshop

Throughout history our understandings of categories such as space, time, and bodies have changed. Living in a more than human world, we have constructed these categories into systems of shared, and often unquestioned, meaning. This method of organising knowledge acquisition has a tendency to construct boundaries or borders which conceals the complex nature and varied connections between spatiality, instances of time and understandings of bodies.
