POP Goes the Region

The small town, the local, and regionalism have long been considered precious territory to be guarded by grassroots music and local art movements, enshrined in high letters, and embalmed in obscurity. This issue of LiNQ (Literature in North Queensland) seeks to challenge and update this notion of the regional. As the Internet connects us in a global village of downloadable ephemera, the local community is redefined. How does the region connect with the popular?

[UPDATE] Four Dimensions: Spatio-Temporal Shifts Reflected in Nineteenth-Century Literature

Indisputably, the categories of space and time shift massively in the nineteenth-century; technology speeds experience just as urban growth and land acquisition distort space. In 1750 it took 3 days to travel from Manchester to London; by 1850, it took 6 hours. In 1866 one could even send a message almost instantly from Ireland to Canada across Cyrus Field's transatlantic cable. The quickening of experiential time was also tied to the spatial developments which required travel technology and created new proximities: between 1810 and 1860, while the country acquired huge tracks of western land, the urban population in the United States increased from 6% to 20%, and by 1861 London, the largest city in the world, reached almost 3 million people.

"The Ethics of Literature"

In recent years, literary scholarship has been increasingly concerned with ethics, both as a theme in literature and as an approach to it. Where and how do ethical concerns interrelate with literature, literary scholarship, and the academy?
Papers suitable for a twenty-minute presentation [approx. 2,000-2,500 words] are invited on the following or related topics:
• the ethics of literary pedagogy
• the ethical nature and needs of the academy
• literature and socio-political ethics
• religious ethics in literature
We also welcome papers on other topics regarding the intersection of Christianity and literature.
