Natures 2014 [featuring Dr. Cheryll Glotfelty as the plenary speaker]

This conference will explore the ways in which culture has shaped and been shaped by the ever-growing and changing sources of human expansion. From ancient game trails to winding river routes, from the roads of the Roman empire to the railroads of the British Empire, from the multi-laned freeways of modernity to the internet of the new millennium, humans have marked and been marked by the earth while pushing against their physical limitations. In a parallel way, people have pushed against the ideologies of their community and forged new paths into and through social consciousness, reflecting, refining, and expanding these revolutionary ideas through cultural and critical expressions.

Victorian Network

The ninth issue of Victorian Network, guest edited by Professor Pamela K. Gilbert (University of Florida), is dedicated to a reassessment of the place of the human body in the Victorian literary and cultural imagination. Rapid medical and scientific advances, advancing industrialization and new forms of labour, legal reforms, the rise of comparative ethnology and anthropology, the growth of consumer culture, and the ever changing trends of Victorian fashion are just a few of the many forces that transformed how Victorians thought about the human body and about the relationship between the embodied, or disembodied, self and the object world.

The end of this year will be marked by the 75th anniversary of Johan Huizinga's classic study of the Homo Ludens. Its main thesis is as striking as it is simple: Culture is founded on and as a form of play. Huizinga's historical, philosophical and anthropological aim was to understand play as a 'totality'. The element of play can be observed in all different aspects of culture, ranging from seemingly innocuous leisure activities to the uttermost serious and advanced systems, such as the financial world, political institutions, mass media and warfare.

Tilburg University / Huizinga Research Institute / ISVW

The end of this year will be marked by the 75th anniversary of Johan Huizinga's classic study of the Homo Ludens, arguably the single most important Dutch contribution to the international scholarly field of the twentieth century. As the subtitle – A Study of the Play Element in Culture – indicates, Huizinga inquires into a fundamental characteristic of human culture and society. The main thesis of the book may appear to be as striking as it seems to be simple: Culture is played from the very first till the very last minute. Culture is founded on a form of play while at the same time being an expression of play. Huizinga tried to understand play as a 'totality'.
