Department of Childhood Studies, Rutgers University-Camden

We invite submissions for participation in a conference hosted by the Department of Childhood Studies of Rutgers University in Camden, New Jersey, USA on Multiple Childhoods/ Multidisciplinary Perspectives.

Serina Patterson

Game studies is quickly emerging as a popular, interdisciplinary field within the humanities and social sciences, yet medieval scholars are still only beginning to explore the relationship between recreational games and literature from a literary or cultural context. This session seeks to broaden this field of study by focusing on depictions of games and gaming in medieval literature and their relation to recreation in the Middle Ages.

CFP: Collection of Essays on Katherine Philips (12/01/10)

updated: 
Thursday, August 12, 2010 - 1:33pm
Ed. David L. Orvis and Ryan Singh Paul

Katherine Philips has experienced something of a Renaissance. Lauded in her own time as "the matchless Orinda," she was dismissed for several centuries as a minor poet. In the past twenty-five years this has begun to change, as feminist and queer scholars especially have turned to Philips to reexamine and reimagine woman's place in the cultural landscape of late-seventeenth-century England. While interest in Philips has continued to grow exponentially, helping to transform the way we do literary history and theory, there is yet to be a collection of essays that demonstrates the vast import of the author's life and works.

CFP: Critical Misidentifications - ASECS, Vancouver, 3/11

updated: 
Tuesday, August 10, 2010 - 2:50pm
Jonathan Sadow

How does eighteenth-century theory and criticism identify, overidentify, or misidentify with its subjects? How does scholarship appropriate the ideologies of the phenomena it is supposed to explain? This seminar will seek papers exploring the ways critical understandings become entwined with the discourse, philosophy, or personas of their objects of study. Although effacement, misreading, and epistemological trouble will be necessary points of discussion, this session is also open to readings that explore these relationships as necessary or productive ones.
