[UPDATE] Gender, Nature and Culture (May 20-22, 2010, Helsinki, Finland)

updated: 
Thursday, October 29, 2009 - 6:12am
full name / name of organization: 
4th Christina Conference on Gender Studies / University of Helsinki

The 4th Christina conference explores the complex connections among gender, nature and culture. Recent research has increasingly viewed nature and culture as inherently entangled and inseparable, suggesting that nature is often understood through discourses of gender and, conversely, that gender is made sense of through historically contingent assumptions about nature. Building on this growing body of scholarship, the conference asks how this mutual intertwining of nature, culture and gender has been theorized, represented and experienced in the past as well as the present. The conference aims to be a meeting point for researchers from different disciplines.

Media, Medium, Mediation: Media Aesthetics Before 1900 (ACLA 2010)

Wednesday, October 28, 2009 - 10:30am
full name / name of organization: 
Rachel Teukolsky

This seminar proposes to explore the aesthetic effects of early media--understood as "discourse networks," or channels of communication--by unsettling the idea of media itself. What might it mean to see media as medium, mediation, an in-between state, something mixed, or hybrid? Rather than seeing media history as a march of technological innovation, critics now describe emergent and residual media; they look to media in transition, overlapping media, co-existing visions of the retrograde and the futuristic. The idea of "media aesthetics" itself suggests porous boundaries between works of art and means of communication.

Re-defining art: Artistic genres in literary works.

updated: 
Tuesday, October 27, 2009 - 4:43pm
full name / name of organization: 
The American Comparative Literature Association (ACLA)
contact email: 

This seminar seeks to identify how and why contemporary literature uses visual works of art (murals, montages, sculpture, paintings, photography, etc) as a means of interpretation. How does the translation of a visual piece into textual form affect both the verbal and the visual expressions? With a particular interest in inter-arts encounters that are cross-cultural in nature, we ask: How does the textualisation of art affect its reception? Does using art in crosscultural works add to or diminish its value as a cultural representation? Does textualization permit the representation of more than one culture? Does reinterpretation involve the loss of an essence, or a change? What is the role of the reader?
