Journal of Jesuit Studies: Artistic Discourses of Liberation Theology (themed edition)

updated: 
Friday, April 12, 2013 - 2:30pm
University of Salford, Greater Manchester

The idea of Liberation Theology continues to exert profound challenges - theological, ontological and theoretical - to the Catholic Church, long after the first context of its emergence and reception (the Cold War) and its first attempted censure and routing. At a time of global financial crises and the immiseration of previously comfortable stratas of Western nations, renewed imperial intrigues and grass-root insurrections in the Middle East, and the explosion of zones of the "Global South" in and around the citadels of the North, Liberation Theology holds out the promise of a direct acquaintance with the poor and oppressed of the new millennium.

From The Book of Kells to the seaside ditty in Ulysses to the Abbey Theatre's Countess Cathleen, Ireland boasts a history replete with visual and performing arts. The Irish Studies permanent section of the M/MLA is soliciting proposals for conference papers that use critical methodologies to analyze artworks that appear in Irish novels, poems, and cinema, as well as essays that examine Irish plays and music (traditional, classical, and choral) and their subsequent performances. We seek papers that analyze any genre or time period and presentations that include images, film clips and sound files will be prioritized.

[UPDATE] Legacy: Mythology and Authenticity in the Humanities (Submission deadline 16 April 2013)

updated: 
Thursday, April 11, 2013 - 11:58am
De Montfort Unversity

This conference focuses on the influence of cultural 'legacies' within current humanities research. By highlighting the work of postgraduates and early career researchers, this interdisciplinary conference will examine the various ways in which 'legacies' are created, restructured, perpetuated and even rejected. It will also question whether newer disciplines respond to cultural mythologies by establishing their own 'legacy' as a means of achieving academic authentication.
