2018 VIRGINIA HUMANITIES CONFERENCE
Call for Papers
Animals in the Humanities:
Relations, Representations, and Ethical Implications
Roanoke College, Virginia
March 23–24, 2018 Deadline: Feb 5, 2018
Does the presence of animals in culture call the very nature of the humanities into question?
Anti-apartheid activist, Bishop Desmond Tutu, explained the African concept of “Ubuntu” in this way: “My humanity is caught up, is inextricably bound up, in what is yours.” If connection is a way of being human, our actions impact others – human, animal, nature – and return to us in ways we cannot predict.

The International Gothic Association postgraduate blog is looking for bloggers and podcasters!
If you are a graduate student working with any aspect of the Gothic, consider writing us a short blog post, or recording us a podcast. It could relate to your work, or any other Gothic tangent that has taken your interest. Blogs should be around 600 words; short, snappy and conversational, with the aim of sparking conversation within the IGA community. If you want to write a blog longer than 600 words, we would encourage you to split it into two or more parts, but these are supposed to be informal rather than articles or papers.
