CFP: [International] Memory, Mourning, Landscape

updated: 
Monday, February 25, 2008 - 9:28pm
Elizabeth Anderson

University of Glasgow, 9 June 2008.

Plenary speakers: Jay Winter (Yale University)Bridget Fowler (University of
Glasgow), Avril Maddrell (University of the West of England).

Increasingly scholarly attention is paid to the role of place and space in
memorialising - whether in commemorations of individuals or in marking mass
deaths. At the same time, experts in a variety of fields are finding new
significance in the different ways of “saying goodbye” (or not saying
goodbye). The aim of this symposium is to investigate memory, mourning and
landscape, and the links between them. The symposium will therefore be of
interest to scholars across the disciplines of the humanities and social
sciences.

updated: 
Monday, February 25, 2008 - 3:33pm
Dr. Rosa E. Soto

We have two papers and are seeking 2-3 more for a panel on
representations of Latino and Latin American masculinities in literature
and popular media. The first paper EXAMINES HOW TV AND FILM images of
overbearing Latina mothers FRAME Latino men AS BOTH MACHOS AND "MAMA'S
BOYS." The second paper examines the tenuous relationship of hegemonic
masculinity to gender, national identity, and family in Cristina Garcia’s
novel, Monkey Hunting.
