University of Portsmouth

To mark the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare's death, the Centre for Studies in Literature and the Centre for European and International Studies Research at the University of Portsmouth are holding a conference on 'Shakespearean Communities' celebrating Shakespeare's life, work and influence. A wealth of scholarship has explored Shakespeare and his contemporary world, where communities were being created, contested and redefined. The persecution of religious minorities, the discovery of the new world, the growing importance of the mercantile class and the spread of the printed text, tested and redrew ideas of community and fellowship.

French Ph.D Program, CUNY Graduate Center, New York City

The French PhD Program at the CUNY Graduate Center invites papers from all disciplines that examine early modern, modern, and postmodern places of memory in French-language texts from a wide variety of perspectives: literature, theory, philosophy, gender, art history, film and media studies, sociology, economics, neurosciences, medicine, psychology, and psychoanalysis.

From St. Augustine's "memory palace" to Derrida's "archive fever," a rich tradition of literary, critical, and philosophical thought has sought to localize memory while also questioning its limits and perfectibility.

OXFORD ENGLISH GRADUATE CONFERENCE 3 JUNE 2016: PROGRESS

'When any real progress is made, we learn and unlearn anew what we thought we knew before.'
(Henry David Thoreau)

Throughout history the complex and contested idea of progress has held wide-ranging implications for literature and literary criticism. We see the meanings and consequences of progress translated across world literature, from The Pilgrim's Progress to the Futurist Manifesto; Renaissance Humanism to the Post-Human; from colonialism to postcolonial literature and theory.
