SPECULATIVE HUMANITIES: STEAMPUNK TO AFROFUTURISM/OCTAVIA E.BUTLER AND THE "UNEXPECTED"

On March 11-12, 2015, the Humanities Division at Essex County College, located in Newark, NJ, will host its Spring 2015 Conference, "Speculative Humanities: Steampunk to Afrofuturism/Octavia E. Butler and the "Unexpected." This two-day conference offers space for writers, historians, musicians, artists, and academicians to explore, expand upon, and rethink the implications of speculative humanities. This year's conference will feature a special emphasis on the life, work, and influence of Octavia E. Butler. We also encourage papers on her recently published works.

Fallen Animals: an interdisciplinary perspective 19th-20th March 2015, University of Aberdeen, Scotland

Zohar Hadromi-Allouche and Aina Larkin, University of Aberdeen

Following the success of the Fall Narratives project in 2014, this workshop will explore the theme of fallen animals. The serpent in the Garden of Eden is but one example of the ambivalence which has characterized the human-animal relationship over the centuries, both across, and within, cultures, societies and traditions. With publications such as Anat Pick's Creaturely Poetics (2011), the field of post-anthropocentrism studies has in recent years become particularly vibrant and attracts scholarly attention from a variety of disciplines. We welcome proposals with research interest in fields such as, but not limited to, literature, religion, languages, history, philosophy, psychology, art, film and visual culture, cultural studies and economics.

This panel on the relationship between animals and romantic poetry will elicit new perspectives on how animal rights and science bear on poetic form and genre. There have been a number of studies of prose writings that address animals and animal rights. However, this panel will examine the intersections between animal and poetic forms, inviting papers that give precise and compelling eco-critical, historicist, and formalist readings of how romantic political, philosophical, and scientific discourses might challenge or amend typically metaphorical and figurative conceptions of animals in the period.
