9th Annual Université de Montréal English Graduate Conference
March 1 and 2, 2013
OF HUMAN BONDAGE: LITERATURES OF CONSTRAINT
Keynote Speaker: Sherry Simon (Concordia University)
Michel Foucault once remarked that "I believe that the anxiety of our era has to do fundamentally with space, no doubt a great deal more than with time." Indeed, there is a strong sense in which space has become one of the most privileged loci of economic, social, and cultural production in the age of globalization. Though many contemporary thinkers have addressed this postmodern "spatial turn," Fredric Jameson's theoretical discourse is remarkable for its insistence on space as a cultural dominant in the world today.

The School of Humanities and Graduate Studies at Lincoln University of Pennsylvania is requesting proposals/abstracts for its annual conference, to be held on April 6, 2013. The main conference theme is "Follow Your Passion: Representations of Passion in the Humanities." Approaches across a broad range of disciplines are welcomed. The conference organizers are particularly interested in papers that provide specific readings of passion as depicted in world literature, religion, philosophy, music, and visual arts.
To explore the complexity of passion as a human, aesthetic, epistemological, ethical, political, and cultural phenomenon, the conference will feature papers, panel discussions, and posters and exhibits sessions.
"The BRAIN—is wider than the sky—"
The turn towards the influence of affect and emotions on "rational decision making" as response to the false separation between mind and body – what neuroscientist Antonio Damasio calls "Descartes' Error" – has had wide appeal in recent years in the humanities and other fields. This conference intends to explore recent theoretical frontiers that address the mind-body problem through interdisciplinary perspectives. How can we continue to think about mind-body relations, connections, or disruptions in new ways across disciplinary boundaries?
The 17th Biennial Conference on Ultimate Reality and Meaning calls for papers or panels on issues of ultimate concern from any discipline or group of disciplines. One page proposals are due January 31, 2013 by email to firstname.lastname@example.org Full conference takes place at University College, U. of Toronto, August 7-10, 2013.
The following panel (or "seminar") will take place at the American Comparative Literature Association annual meeting, at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Canada April 4 - 7, 2013. Seminars run for three days, with 3 or 4 speakers presenting each day.
