Deathless Love (18 May 2013)

Wednesday, August 1, 2012 - 9:28am
The Carolina Emerging Scholars Conference

Celebrating the world's greatest love stories has long been the subject of authors, painters, musicians, dancers, moviemakers, and critics. The Carolina Emerging Scholars Conference is pleased to accept papers on the theme of "Deathless Love," ranging from the story of Heloise and Abelard to Wuthering Heights and the Twilight series, and dealing with any genre from poetry to the movies. We would be particularly interested in interdisciplinary papers making connections between two or more genres, for instance, literary or historical love affairs immortalized in visual art or music, the historical and literary intersections of Spiritualism, and cross-cultural notions of love beyond death.

CFP Other Worlds 3rd December 2012

Saturday, July 28, 2012 - 7:13am
Victorian Network and King's College London

Keynote Speakers: Dr John Holmes (Reading) and Professor Cora Kaplan (KCL)

From other lands to other planets to other dimensions, the nineteenth-century imagination thrived on the idea of 'elsewhere'. Alongside a developing rhetoric of geographically and intellectually bounded identities grew a fascination with alterity. Other Worlds seeks to explore the many ways in which Victorians looked beyond their quotidian spheres to imagined alternatives. We invite submissions which explore nineteenth-century modes of thought which position themselves as other, alternative, transcendent, secret or hidden.

(dis)Pleasures of Staged Music and Drama, for Leeds IMC 2013

Friday, July 27, 2012 - 1:45pm
Katherine Steele Brokaw, University of California-Merced

The theme for the Leeds 2013 International Medieval Congress is Pleasure, and as such this session will look at medieval and early Tudor dramas that stage music and/or dance, perhaps discussing how theatrical representation of music and dance negotiates religious and social discourses about the pleasures of music and dance, and the benefits and dangers of these pleasures. Papers looking at music in dramas from the early middle ages through the sixteenth century are welcome. Email Katherine Steele Brokaw with an abstract by August 15, 2013.
