Dr. Rob Fisher/ Inter-Disciplinary.Net

7th Global Conference
Interculturalism, Meaning and Identity

Tuesday 18th March – Thursday 20th March 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations:

Interculturalism stands at the interface between the individual, local groups, societies and cultures. These compete, conflict, co-exist and trigger reactions and responses on a number of levels including the social, the economic, the political and the personal. These are reinforced through language, the media, cultural events, social institutions and migration policies. Amidst all these dynamic and static forms of interaction, identities are built and consolidated.

[UPDATE] Bodies in Place: Disability and the Environment in American Literature (NEMLA April 2014, Harrisburg PA)

Thursday, July 25, 2013 - 12:14pm

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?

[UPDATE] Irish Gothic Conference 5-6 December, 2013

Thursday, July 25, 2013 - 3:39am
Università degli Studi di Perugia / Università per Stranieri di Perugia

Gothic studies have recently been expanding previous limits of what was once thought to be an historically well defined genre. The extent of continual change in Gothic denotation is such that it is now approaching the status of an inter-genre inter-semiotic category. This is even more the case with Irish literature. Not only because a remarkable number of Gothic writers are Irish, but also, and more significantly, because Ireland has provided an extremely fruitful cultural background for the particular narrative forms and devices that are usually associated with the Gothic.
