BACKGROUND

The Future of English in Asia: Perspectives on Language and Literature (second call)

updated: 
Friday, December 14, 2012 - 3:18am
Department of English, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

As English becomes progressively more multimodal and destandardized and as we look to a future where by 2050 Chinese "will have nearly triple the numbers of speakers that English has" (Ostler, 2003) it is important to explore how English can respond to the challenges and opportunities of this multilingual age. Whether we see English as a tool to "win friends and influence people," as a lingua franca, or as a language whose use is now more symbolic than communicative, its possibilities remain endless. Now that English looks to a new stage in its history in this globalized "Asian century" it is timely that the future of English is explored from an Asian perspective.

Representation of Religions in the Media: Multidisciplinary Approaches, 29 and 30 July 2013

updated: 
Thursday, December 13, 2012 - 12:49pm
Liverpool Hope University, UK

Religion remains a significant aspect of contemporary social, political and cultural life, and continues to be an object of media scrutiny. Religions are represented in documentaries, serial dramas, comedies, soap operas and on Reality TV. Religions are depicted in films and portrayed in the broadcast and print media, on the internet, and within multi-platform texts. This two-day symposium will explore both positive and negative representations of religions in the contemporary media from a multi- and interdisciplinary perspective. The symposium will be used to develop a network of academics whose expertise on media representations of religions will support new initiatives and open new areas of study.

Stet Issue 3: Dis/orientation

updated: 
Thursday, December 13, 2012 - 11:15am
King's College London

Stet, the online postgraduate journal of the English Department at King's College London, is now accepting submissions from current postgraduate students for its third peer-reviewed publication. In this issue, we will present articles from an international pool of students on the concept of dis/orientation. We seek to explore the question of how we are and have been located or dislocated in space, time, and history. Which parts of our personal, social, cultural, geographical, genetic, or technological landscape orient us? What incidents construct our conception of ourselves and our environments? We wish to explore the concept of dis/orientation in literary and cultural studies from an interdisciplinary, cross-period perspective.

Critical Distance: Reclusiveness, Secession, Indifference -- Special Issue of the Journal for Cultural Research

updated: 
Thursday, December 13, 2012 - 8:25am
Guest Editor: James Corby; Journal for Cultural Research

In the context of any attempt to rethink the modalities, possibilities, conditions and limitations of critical thought, the otherwise sober and restrained notion of 'critical distance', with all its implications of unhurried reason and mastery, offers a compelling perspective on what is at stake.
