From The Book of Kells to the seaside ditty in Ulysses to the Abbey Theatre's Countess Cathleen, Ireland boasts a history replete with visual and performing arts. The Irish Studies permanent section of the M/MLA is soliciting proposals for conference papers that use critical methodologies to analyze artworks that appear in Irish novels, poems, and cinema, as well as essays that examine Irish plays and music (traditional, classical, and choral) and their subsequent performances. We seek papers that analyze any genre or time period and presentations that include images, film clips and sound files will be prioritized.
In what ways do artistic constructions of the body appear in literature? The Fabricating the Body permanent section of the M/MLA is soliciting proposals for conference papers that analyze artistic constructions of human and non-human bodies in literature. From paintings, to sculpture, to drawings literary works portray bodies as ideal objects d'art, and also as grotesque manifestations. How do aesthetic, phenomenological, ecocritical, feminist and even animal-other theories inform our understanding of the artistic body in literary works? We seek papers that analyze any genre or time period of literature

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.
The long British nineteenth century (1789-1914) appears to have the long global twentieth century (including the first decades of the twenty-first) in its thrall. Regency and Victorian settings proliferate in popular romance fiction, ranging from scenes of domestic life within the United Kingdom to British espionage in Europe and British colonial settlements. Retellings and "sequels" of Jane Austen's novels line our (digital) bookshelves and fill fan-fiction websites, spilling over most recently into the YouTube sensation The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.

'The Lost Subject' is the Second Annual Postgraduate Conference hosted by the School of Humanities at the University of Dundee. It aims to explore the diverse applications of the notion of 'The Lost Subject' in both academic and creative terms. 'Lost Subject' can refer to research or practice that is not yet fully accepted (a condition that most research is in at some point) or involves the study of lost or recovered material. This conference also welcomes discussion of the process of research and the material that is 'lost' in the shaping of one's work but which might lead to other avenues of enquiry or practice. Other approaches may include, but are not limited to:
