Dear Colleagues,

Apologies for cross-posting.

Please see below our general call for papers for our symposium: The Rest is History: Ireland, Performance and The Historical Imagination.

This symposium seeks to re-negotiate the archive of Irish theatre and performance in order to cast a light on those subterranean dramaturgies that are either characterised as the discontents of historical time or indeed, transmogrified into the historical imagination.

[UPDATE] Extended Deadline "Gothic limits / Gothic Ltd," IGA Conference, University of Heidelberg, Germany, 2nd-5th August 2011

updated: 
Thursday, January 13, 2011 - 11:35am
full name / name of organization: 
10th Biennial Conference of the International Gothic Association, University of Heidelberg, Germany

Recent Gothic studies have increasingly looked into problems associated with the idea of delimitation, both in terms of material and media. This leads to the two sets of questions implied in this conference's title: Where are the limits of the 'classic' Gothic tradition? Where have these limits been reached or even transgressed? Can one speak about a 'post-Gothic mode'? What, if anything, is capable of replacing the Gothic? The second set of questions is prompted by the commercialisation and commodification of an increasingly romanticised Gothic and its diffusion among different media and modes: Is the Gothic dependent on 'literature'? Are there media-specific 'Gothics'? Which intermedial and intermodal forms are there?

"When we attempt to answer the question 'What is history?,' E.H. Carr suggests, in his highly praised assessment of history and historiography, that "our answer, consciously or unconsciously, reflects our position in time, and forms part of our answer to the broader question what view we take of the society in which we live." Carr regards the present age as "the most historically-minded of all ages," as "[m]odern man is to an unprecedented degree self-conscious and therefore conscious of history." In the perspective of Eric Hobsbawm, this increasing self-consciousness coincides with "the rapid historicization of the social sciences themselves.
