Atlantic World Research Network and Quaintance-Weaver

The Atlantic World Research Network, in partnership with Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants and Hotels and The Fresh Market, presents a unique feast of ideas and food—an international and interdisciplinary conference exploring four great transatlantic foodways: Carolina Lowcountry, African, Italian, and Spanish/Latin American. Featuring famed food scholars and leading chefs, our conference will bring together inquiring minds and discerning palates as we ask how transatlantic contact combined and transformed old foodways, and how those foodways have transformed us all.

[UPDATE] Bodies in Place: Disability and the Environment in American Literature (9/30/13))

updated: 
Thursday, August 29, 2013 - 10:12pm
NEMLA Conference (April 3-6, Harrisburg, PA)

This panel seeks a broad range of papers that explore how disability challenges normative, even ableist, constructions of the body-environment dyad. Broadly speaking, papers in this panel will survey points of connection between disability studies and ecological criticism. For example, how does disability-centered American literature (re)negotiate the relationship between embodiment and emplacement? How might life writing by people with disabilities contribute to a richer and more inclusive ecological criticism? How might we re-examine and deconstruct "canonical" American environmental literature through a disability studies lens?

Paving the Way: Roads, Rivers, and Railways in Culture and Criticism

From ancient game trails to winding river routes, from the roads of the Roman empire to the railroads of the British Empire, from the multi-laned freeways of modernity to the internet of the new millennium, humans have marked the earth by pushing against their physical limitations. In a parallel way, people have pushed against the ideologies of their community and forged new paths into and through social consciousness, reflecting, refining, and expanding these revolutionary ideas through cultural and critical expressions.

Please send essays for a book collection which examines detective/mystery fiction in terms of form, style and aestheticism: the basic relationship between the detective's art and the contemporary aesthetic culture. This scholarly collection is to be published by Ibidem Press, Germany, and distributed in the US by Columbia University Press. The publication will be a revised and expanded edition of Ibidem's previously published Formal Investigations: Aesthetic Style in Late-Victorian and Edwardian Detective Fiction (Studies in English Literatures 4, www.ibidemverlag.de/Series/Studies-in-English-Literatures).

[UPDATE]: Intimate Archives: Photography and Life-Writing, University of Oxford. Abstracts due 9 September 2013

Lee-Von Kim and Christine Fouirnaies, University of Oxford

Intimate Archives is a one-day interdisciplinary conference that seeks to explore the intersection of photography and life-writing. Photography has come to play an increasingly self-conscious role in life narratives, raising questions about truth, fictionality, authenticity and the limits of referentiality. What role does photography have in the construction of life narratives? How are intimate and affective relations negotiated and represented in photographic life narratives? Furthermore, what is at stake when intimate records of familial and private lives are published or exhibited? This conference seeks to engage with these issues.
