Neo-Victorian Studies

updated: 
Sunday, May 24, 2009 - 9:03am
Neo-Victorian Studies e-journal, published by Swansea University, Wales, UK

Neo-Victorian Studies (www.neovictorianstudies.com), an inter-disciplinary, fully peer-reviewed e-journal, invites scholarly and/or creative submissions on any topic related to the re-visioning of the nineteenth century from twentieth/twenty-first century critical perspectives. The journal aims to explore continuities and ruptures between the Victorian and later (post)modern periods, and analyse the nineteenth century's cultural legacies and reverberations – aesthetic and ideological, material and residual/spectral – within literature, the arts and humanities, and present-day political, legal, and medical discourse.

Florida Conference of Historian, Special Interest Section on Media Arts and Culture

The Florida Conference of Historian Special Interest Section on Media Arts and Culture wishes to encourage scholarship aimed at African-American experience in the United States. The FCH-Media Arts and Culture SIS wishes to encourage scholars examining African-American agency and autonomy since Reconstruction in the South. Key to our concerns are scholars investigating community, family, and organizations that sought to further African-American inclusion in U.S. society. We welcome interdisciplinary submissions on or concerning African-American history, culture, literature, theory, and media to the FCH annual meeting. The Media Arts and Culture SIS encourages graduate students, undergraduates, and independent scholars who wish to participate.

Consider David Foster Wallace: A Conference – University Of Liverpool

UPDATE: I have had a lot of late interest from people concerned that they cannot make the 22 May abstract deadline. If you feel you cannot make the abstract deadline but are interested in attending, or if you are a non-scholar, then you should also contact me ASAP with any enquiries, or to register your interest. I cannot extend the CFP much longer because I have to organise for numbers but it is possible to put your name down in advance if you are interested.

THE CARTOGRAPHICAL NECESSITY OF EXILE

So, however far you have travelled, your
steps make more holes and the mesh is multiplied –
… exiles must make their own maps

In Derrida's Wake: a Symposium on Deconstruction After Jacques Derrida

In Derrida's Wake
9 October 2009
La Trobe University

8 October 2009 marks the fifth anniversary of the death of French deconstructionist Jacques Derrida. Given Derrida's concern with dates and contexts, but also with notions of trying to mourn for lost friends and the responsibilities of the living towards the dead and their legacies, it seems a more than appropriate time--perhaps a day late, because we hesitate, trying to postpone the inevitable--to bring together some friends and scholars of Derrida, not to mourn a man so concerned with the impossibility of mourning, but to begin to celebrate the enduring influence of deconstruction, to survey the state of play across the disciplines, in Derrida's wake.
