Registration open for "Legacy: Mythology and Authenticity in the Humanities" - A Postgraduate Conference

updated: 
Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - 11:52am
De Montfort University

This conference focuses on the influence of cultural 'legacies' within current humanities research. By highlighting the work of postgraduates and early career researchers, this interdisciplinary conference will examine the various ways in which 'legacies' are created, restructured, perpetuated and even rejected. It will also question whether newer disciplines respond to cultural mythologies by establishing their own 'legacy' as a means of achieving academic authentication.

School of Interdisciplinary Arts, Ohio University, Athens, Ohio USA

In celebration of its 50th Anniversary, the Ohio University School of Interdisciplinary will hold an international conference on the past, present, and future of interdisciplinary arts. Interdisciplinarity is based on the deep affinity of all branches of knowledge and provides a site for exploring this affinity. In the dynamic current world, as the boundaries between the arts become increasingly permeable, scholars recognize the methodological importance of multidisciplinary scholarship to facilitate our historical and critical understanding of the arts.

Understanding Atrocities Conference: Remembering, Representing, and Teaching Genocide February 19-21, 2014

updated: 
Friday, May 31, 2013 - 3:01pm
Tristan Smyth / Scott W. Murray Mount Royal University

We use 'genocide' and 'atrocity'– words that overlap and mix – as we reach for an understanding of the full horror of one people's attempts to eliminate another. Atrocity is an aspect of genocide, and is at the crux of most discussions on the topic, but from what is this sense of atrocity derived? We universally regard genocide as an atrocity, yet why does it persist? The Understanding Atrocities Conference aims to explore, among other things, the relationship between 'atrocity' and 'genocide,' and how they are interwoven and understood. By approaching the topic of genocidal atrocity within the themes of remembering, representing, and teaching, we hope to engender a discussion across, between, and among the disciplines.
