Illness and/in Literature and the Arts


"Like anyone who has had an extraordinary experience I wanted to describe it . . . My initial experience of illness was a series of disconnected shocks and my first instinct was to try to bring it under control by turning it into a narrative."

Anatole Broyard, Intoxicated by My Illness and Other Writings on Life and Death

International Conference on Language, Literature & Linguistics 2013

Thursday, May 9, 2013 - 1:45pm
International Center for Research and Development

Language plays an important role in the modern society and represent diverse aspirations and needs ,cultures, traditions, and practices. Literature represents a language or a people: culture and tradition. Literature introduces us to new worlds of experience. We learn about books and literature; we enjoy the comedies and the tragedies of poems, stories, and plays; and we may even grow and evolve through our literary journey with books. Linguistics offers different approaches to the study of how communities, groups and individuals communicate with one another.

Positively Papist: Catholic Culture and Renaissance England

Thursday, May 9, 2013 - 12:25pm
SAMLA 85 Conference: Cultures, Contexts, Texts, Images: Making Meaning in Print, Digital, and Networked Worlds

Pamphleteers, clergymen, and political officials demonized recusant Catholics in Renaissance England, but early modern English culture is inextricable from the influences of the medieval Catholicism from which it emerged. This SAMLA session will look at the ways that Catholic culture, broadly interpreted, influences English literary and artistic endeavors between 1534 - 1660.

[UPDATE] CFP Four Nations Fiction: Women and the Novel 1780-1830 - Deadline Extended

Thursday, May 9, 2013 - 10:44am
National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth

In Blackwood's Magazine in September 1819, John Wilson reflected on the towering fame of three contemporary women poets in the following terms: 'Scotland has her Baillie – Ireland her Tighe – England her Hemans.' The work of these women in fact represents all four parts of Britain in 1819, but who would replace them if fiction was the focus, rather than poetry?

Moreover, such writing is taking new forms—on the page, as in the past, and on the web as well. This panel highlights and celebrates creative non-fiction composed for both page and screen. Papers on any aspect of writing, writing about, or teaching creative nonfiction are welcomed, and papers that connect to this year's special focus-"Cultures, Contexts, Images, Texts: Making Meaning in Print, Digital, and Networked Worlds"-are especially encouraged.

Intersecting Gender - 22nd - 23rd November 2013, Queen's University Belfast

Thursday, May 9, 2013 - 5:26am
Sibéal Postgraduate Gender and Feminist Studies Network

The idea of intersectionality in the field of feminist and gender studies has increasingly been used to facilitate deeper understandings of contemporary gendered identity and experience. Intersectionality in this usage seeks to speak to the coinciding of gender with other biological, social and cultural categories of personal identity and/or oppression, but also to the intersections which can be observed between gender and other apparently "gender-neutral" areas and experiences.
