Medieval Automata and Simulacra: From the Daemonic to the Hydraulic [Medieval Congress at Kalamazoo, May 13–16, 2009]

Puppets, marionettes, golems, androids, automata, moving statues, mannequins, shadow figures—sometimes comic, sometimes creepy, these figures of fun and fright engage us with their similarity, albeit grotesque, to ourselves. Recent researches into the field of medieval automata have convincingly established the the power of these living or life-like machines as both performing objects and as metaphor. They have featured as 'actors', or performing objects, in legend, epic, chanson, and wonder tale; they also have served as metaphors for personal freedom or manipulation, for the presence of a human soul or its terrifying absence.

"The Ethics of Literature"

In recent years, literary scholarship has been increasingly concerned with ethics, both as a theme in literature and as an approach to it. Where and how do ethical concerns interrelate with literature, literary scholarship, and the academy?
Papers suitable for a twenty-minute presentation [approx. 2,000-2,500 words] are invited on the following or related topics:
• the ethics of literary pedagogy
• the ethical nature and needs of the academy
• literature and socio-political ethics
• religious ethics in literature
We also welcome papers on other topics regarding the intersection of Christianity and literature.

[REMINDER OF DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS ] Crossing the Line: Affinities before and after 1900

updated: 
Saturday, August 1, 2009 - 5:04am
University of Liverpool 28-29 January 2010

Crossing the Line is a student-led postgraduate conference that will explore and interrogate the multifarious affinities between Victorian and Modernist cultures. It focuses on the cross-currents of attraction and repulsion at the turn of the century. This event asks whether affinities exist innately in the body as psychological and emotional connections, and investigates those affinities which are cultural constructions. It questions whether affinities are permanent or can be eroded by the passage of time.

We invite research students from the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences to present papers considering affinities across the threshold of the Victorian and Modernist worlds.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

Call for Papers: Ports of Call---Cultures of Exchange, UCLA

Tuesday, July 28, 2009 - 3:42pm
UCLA Comparative Literture Graduate Student Conference

As gateways to other worlds and world-systems, port cities, such as Tangier, Istanbul, London, Manila, and Kobe, one of Japan's most important ports, are sites of economic and cultural exchange. They are at the cutting edge of global trends and transnational movements that promote the export and import of goods, people, ideas, and ideologies. At least as early as the 16th century, port cities, such as Cadiz in Spain, Cambay in western India, and Sao Salvador da Bahia, in Brazil, to name only a few, have nurtured utopias and launched a thousand dreams into a yet to be conquered horizon. Port cities have been both the crate of colonial desire and the locus of revolutionary fervor.
