Into the Deep: Monstrous Creatures, Alien Worlds

Explora International Conference
14–15 June 2012
Toulouse Natural History Museum

At a time when the hope of finding water on other planets dwindles, the beauty of the earth is more and more considered to lie in its wondrous seas and oceans. Yet true access to the world of the sea has long been denied to humans, and it seems to be gained at the very moment when it is being endangered. This conference proposes to reflect upon the evolution of scientific and literary representations of oceans and underwater ecosystems in the past two centuries, trying to sketch a brief history of oceanography and its literary and artistic representations.

3rd Global Conference
Revenge

Sunday 15th July 2012 – Tuesday 17th July 2012
Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom

Call for Papers:
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.
