The Shaping of Scottish Identities: Family, Nation, and the World Beyond

Wednesday, November 25, 2009 - 1:57pm
Centre for Scottish Studies

In 1994, T.C. Smout pointed to the concentric loyalties which go to make up the identity of those who see themselves as Scottish. Some of these loyalties were examined in the 1998 volume Image and Identity: the making and re-making of Scotland through the ages (Edinburgh, 1998). Building on that work and the last decade of new research, The Centre for Scottish Studies at the University of Guelph would like to continue this discussion by inviting proposals for the second volume in the Guelph Series in Scottish Studies, The Shaping of Scottish Identities: Family, Nation, and the World Beyond.

Revenge, so we are told, is a dish best served cold: a 'sweet' wreaking of vengeance on those who have – either in reality or in our minds – slighted, wronged or in some way 'injured' us and who are now 'enjoying' their just deserts by an avenging angel (or angels) on the great day of reckoning.

School of English, University of Leicester, UK

Following on from two hugely successful recent conferences, the 2010 School of English postgraduate conference at the University of Leicester will address concepts of personal territory, in any of its manifestations. A sense of personal belonging, or 'home',
contributes towards the idea of having a territory, and this can take any number of physical and psychological forms. Topics that might be considered are:

[Update] Visual Arts in the 21st Century

Sunday, November 22, 2009 - 1:13pm
Rupkatha Journal on Interdisciplinary Studies in Humanities

In the wake of the digital revolution and globalisation policies the whole world is witnessing formation of certain conditions which are having and will continue to have tremendous impact on the production, reproduction, access, dissemination and appreciation of visual arts. While the old art forms and artworks are being revisited and reproduced in wholly new ways and for a variety of purposes, new types in the forms of digital arts are surfacing not only on the internet but also every place of our visual culture. The place and workplace of the artist also has undergone a radical change.

[UPDATE] Afterlives of the Nineteenth Century (ACLA 2010)

Saturday, November 21, 2009 - 7:42pm
Criscillia Benford, Marty Gould, Rebecca Mitchell

UPDATE: ACLA has extended the deadline for submissions to November 23.

The buzz surrounding recent Austen adaptation Pride and Prejudice and Zombies captures the ambivalence — equal parts horror and delight — evoked by the perpetual resuscitation of the nineteenth century. Leaving others to fight Austen's zombies, this seminar sets its historical sights slightly later, taking the figure of the zombie as a point of departure. Does Victorian Britain, like the zombie, refuse to remain quietly dead and buried? Or do we keep digging it up?
