Voice in Henry James

Minority Identities: Rights and Representation

Monday, November 29, 2010 - 8:44am
University of Reading, UK

This conference aims to explore the interface between creative/critical forms of representation and the claim to material/ontological human and animal rights. It will examine the concepts 'minority', 'identity', 'rights' and 'representation' and their possible intersections. It will also interrogate categories and politics of identity, such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, age, and disability, as well as the critical disciplines that invest in these, such as feminism, postcolonialism, and cultural studies.

'Who has the right to a particular literary terrain,
the right to define the terms of representation?'

Shakespeare and Early Modern Emotion

An International and Interdisciplinary Conference

29 June – 1 July 2011

The Andrew Marvell Centre, The University of Hull

This conference will explore the performance and representation of emotion in the work of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. In the last decade, scholars have been increasingly interested in the cultural history of emotions, arguing that they should be regarded as 'social phenomena' rather than inward experiences. At the same time, we have seen a resurgence of interest in the ethical and philosophical aspects of literary texts, and a return to thinking about ideas of 'human nature'.
