Spectral Gothic: Demon(s)trating the Monstrous

Thursday, November 8, 2012 - 11:30am
Alison Younger (University of Sunderland) and Martyn Colebrook (Independent Scholar)

Straddling the geographic and cultural borders between Scotland and Ireland and sprawling over the many textual genres it incorporates, haunts and appropriates, Celtic Gothic remains a fertile and productive topic for contemporary scholarship which embodies a range of time periods, often benchmarked as moving from the writing of Hogg and Scott to present day. As much a hybrid as a double, the Gothic is a nexus and a thematic nuclear that lends itself well to an interrogation of Celtic culture. Following the success of the Spectral Gothic symposium in June 2012 at the University of Sunderland, proposals are invited for an interdisciplinary collection of essays oriented around "Celtic Gothic".

UPDATE Mapping Between Bodies and Sounds

Wednesday, November 7, 2012 - 10:06pm
Julie Beth Napolin, the New School

Organizers: Rachel Corkle (NYU) and Julie Beth Napolin (Eugene Lang College, the New School for Liberal Arts)

The seminar organizers invite abstracts (250 words) for a proposed panel at ACLA, to be held in Toronto April 4-7, 2013. The conference theme is "Global Positioning Systems."

This seminar will address where philosophy, literature and music intersect, and how thinkers, writers and performers—drawing from early modern and materialist understandings of mathematics, music and anatomy to recent theories of cognition, perception, and the digital—have located this intersection in the body. We are in turn interested in how bodies in space, as producers, negotiators and vessels of sound, are themselves mapped by sound and music.

Call for Panels - Europe and its Worlds: Cultural Mobility in, to and from Europe

Tuesday, November 6, 2012 - 5:56am
Radboud University Nijmegen, Faculty of Arts and Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies

The Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies at Radboud University Nijmegen jointly welcome panel proposals for an international conference on their common research theme 'Europe and its Worlds'. At the core of this theme is the question of how Europe has always consisted of different worlds, how it differs from the rest of the world, and how it interacts with other worlds. This conference specifically addresses the many ways in which cultural mobility impacts on European culture, past and present. The notion of cultural mobility raises new questions on issues of persistance, change and interaction, as Stephen Greenblatt argues in Cultural Mobility: A Manifesto (2010).

ACLA 2013 Seminar: Migrant Cartography: (Dis)Placing South Asia (DEADLINE: November 15)

Monday, November 5, 2012 - 7:28pm
Nida Sajid / Rutgers University

With more than 14% of the world's refugee population, South Asia, as a region, hosts the fourth largest concentration of refugees. Displaced on account of religious, ethnic and political conflicts, refugee communities force us to experience the fluidity of borders from within the cartography of nations. From the refugee cross-border migrations during the Partition of India in 1947 to the more recent Tamil refugee crisis in Sri Lanka, the influx of Afghan war refugees in Pakistan, and the relocation of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, modern South Asia has repeatedly witnessed the pain of people in a state of statelessness.
