Urban Gothic: Haunted Cities, Spectral Traces
A one-day conference in Liverpool, UK
24 April 2010

Organised by the North Gothic Network, a regional network of the International Gothic Association, in partnership with Edinburgh Napier University, Liverpool John Moores University and Edge Hill University.

Scholars of Gothic are increasingly welcoming historicised studies of Gothic and literary criticism examining how Gothic tropes and modes are inflected for a particular time and place. Even more specifically, critics call for studies not only of historicised Gothic, but of localised Gothic.

Disability and the Enlightenment

Dwight Codr/ South Central Society for Eighteenth Century Studies

Although scholars have long recognized the centrality of the body in the cultural productions of "Enlightenment" England -- whether it be in terms of empiricism or sensibility, in the context of acting on stage or walking the streets of London -- the history of the disabled body has played a conspicuously minor role in these investigations. One of the reasons for the absence of a vigorous discussion of disability in the eighteenth century may have to do with the belief that such a discussion might be anachronistic, eighteenth-century England having had no operative category of disability.

"The End?": International Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference at Indiana University 3/25-3/27

International Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference at Indiana University

We are issuing a Call for Proposals for scholarly and creative submissions for an International Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference entitled "The End?" to be held at Indiana University in Bloomington from March 25th-27th, 2010.

Bookends, happy endings, at wits' end, means to an end, split ends, making ends meet… the list could go on. We imagine the end in endless ways when we think about our languages, our cultures, our disciplines, our arts, and ourselves. What sort of ends are we at, or fast approaching? What ends have we passed? When we structure our thinking around an ending, do we imply a certain teleology? Do we point to a moment of division or rupture? Do we ask about a new beginning?
