Panel Proposal: Performing Philanthropy
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.
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.

The Crisis of the Confined Body is a graduate student conference that will join five Romance languages (Catalan, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish), fostering a comparative approach to studies of the body in confinement, isolation and extraction. The conference will offer critical examinations of the body and its contingent relationship to spatial, temporal, cultural and/or linguistic parameters. A theme that lends itself to multiple fields, The Crisis of the Confined Body will promote interdisciplinary collaborations between the humanities, visual arts, and sciences, engaging points of overlap as well as lines of divergence. We encourage presentations that engage a comparative and/or interdisciplinary approach.
This special issue of Nineteenth Century Gender Studies will explore the way in which nineteenth-century women wrote about the natural world. This special issue is designed to cover writings on landscape and on plant and animal life. It aims to emphasise women's participation in scientific discussion of Darwinian ideas, and also in a broader range of scientific and aesthetic engagements with nature.
