Recent populist movements in the U.S., U.K., and around the globe suggest that the practices and theories surrounding dissent and civil disobedience are now more relevant than ever. With the Women’s March reaching nearly five million people world-wide, sparking protests not only across the United States, but in Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America, Australia, and even Antarctica, it is clear that the praxis of protest will be a hallmark of this period in the twenty-first century.

Gendered representations of writers appear in all forms of popular culture, from George Gissing’s Grub Street (1898) and Edith Wharton’s Hudson River Bracketed (1929) to David Duchovney’s character in the Showtime series Californication and Melissa McCarthy’s in CBS’s Mike and Molly. Although they each portray aspects of the writing life that were characteristic of their eras, one thing they have in common (besides the fact that a writer wrote them) is that they all exhibit some kind of peculiarity, be it sex addiction, writer’s block, delusions of grandeur, fevered brilliance, etc., that either adds to or detracts from their writing.

One-Day Symposium. The Open University, Camden, London. Friday 20th October 2017

In the last decade an emerging generation of writers from Malaysia and Singapore has achieved international recognition, pioneering new global English fiction and embarking on more confident imaginative journeys across South East Asia. This one-day symposium, a collaboration between the Open University and the University of Exeter, seeks to remap global English fiction (dominated by neighbouring South Asia) and draw fresh attention to the dynamic colonial literary cultures and postcolonial, globalising futures of Malaysian and Singaporean Anglophone writing.

How has it been progressive or restrictive to change the race or ethnicity of a character in adaptations of literature and other texts? How do such choices in character design and casting increase diversity? How do such choices perpetuate problematic legacies from the source material? Examples may include stage, film, and fan productions of novels, plays, and comics.

Interest in Balkan Studies, especially among scholars from the Balkans, has increased considerably. Being such a unique region, the Balkans have stirred the imagination of writers, travelers, scholars and the like. The aim of the conference is to gather together scholars from the Balkan region and worldwide who share an interest in Balkan studies. The conference promises to offer multidisciplinary perspectives in various fields of Balkan studies, namely in literature, cultural and language studies. It will be open to complementary and alternative ideas and interpretations. One of the main ambitions will be tackling taboo topics with the intention to overcome any forms of ordinary fanaticism, bias, fabricated antagonism, prejudices and stereotypes.

In her 2016 book, Staying with the Trouble, Donna Haraway suggests that the way beyond the anthropocene and capitalocene is “making oddkin” which is “always situated, someplace and not noplace, entangled and worldly.” For this panel we seek readings that explore the relationship (or kinship) between subject and object, body and environment, the self and the landscape. Posthuman ecology and new materialism may collide in texts that blur the self and her environment (both natural and social).  This phenomenon may particularly manifest in texts where human subjects occupy Othered identity positions, such as women, non-white, and immigrant subjects who inscribe how their environments mark their bodies and their lives.
