"Connectedness, Identity and Alienation"
As the country that gave the world the novel one thousand years ago, and subsequently haiku and manga, Japan's long and rich literary history make it an ideal place to bring together academics, writers, and librarians to celebrate, debate, and explore their common passion. The aim of this International Conference is to encourage academics, scholars and practitioners representing a exciting diversity of countries, cultures, and religions to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum encouraging respectful dialogue.
CONFERENCE THEME: "Connectedness and Alienation: The 21st Century Enigma"
Being connected through social networking sites has become an accepted form of communication in today's digitalized world. People can spend hours a day talking on mobile phones, on Skype, or on the Internet, which gives the impression that we are a more connected world than ever before. And communication is lauded. Because of the massive information flow we can call ourselves perhaps the most connected age in history. But is this connectedness, however, real or illusory?

The Centre for Modernist Studies
University of Sussex
Responding to recent scholarly constellations of modernism, affect and intimacy this one-day symposium, hosted by the Centre for Modernist Studies at University of Sussex, seeks to explore new ways of thinking about modernist feeling and modernist intimacies. Are there such things as "modernist feelings"? How might different modernist narratives of emotion in psychoanalysis, literary theory, philosophy and medicine be made to collide, disrupt and form new points of contact? How do modernist bodies come together and apart?
Neo-Victorian Studies is currently soliciting scholarly and creative work for its 2013 general issue. The editors welcome articles from established and early career scholars and creative artists on any topic related to the exploration of nineteenth-century legacies from twentieth/twenty-first-century perspectives.
