International Conference "Unity in Diversity" on the Niche Areas in Commonwealth Linguistics, Literature and Culture

"The minor but not dismissed, the dismissed but not excluded,the excluded but not forgotten"
Department of English, Szczecin University, Poland, 21 -24 October 2010.

Recent literary, linguistic and cultural studies have been largely dominated by burgeoning new theories paving the way for the most interesting and up-to-date concepts, notions and ideas. Yet there are many scholars whose main research area is centered at the peripheries of these mainstream discoveries thus leading to the emergence of niche fields of study within current literary and linguistic research projects.

Crisis Carnival 2010: Spectacle! The Seduction of Illusion

What do the Olympic opening ceremony, drag queens, and Shakespeare have in common?

Linguistic theorists such as Judith Butler, Jean Baudrillard, and Guy Debord have all conjectured that we engage daily in performances that obscure the line between illusion and reality. These performances both re-affirm and challenge society's values, boundaries, and taboos. By analyzing these spectacles, we can question the relationship between performance and the "real," with the hopes of discovering the motivations behind these seductive visions.

Consuming the Past: Library Resources for PGRs, An Interdisciplinary Conference and Training Day, Monday 28th June 2010

updated: 
Wednesday, February 24, 2010 - 8:09am
full name / name of organization: 
Durham, Newcastle and Northumbria Universities

As researchers we 'consume' texts, reading, interpreting and reusing material found in archives or specialist electronic resources. Libraries are a key tool in this process. Library-based research is no longer restricted to the book, but also encompasses archived materials, electronic databases and local resources. This conference provides an opportunity to explore both the practical and theoretical issues arising from attempts to understand the past: training sessions will investigate the use of archival resources in the Arts and Humanities whilst panellists will also consider how texts themselves conceptualise and appropriate the past.
