CHAPTER PROPOSALS ARE INVITED FOR AN EDITED VOLUME TITLED STATES AND PRISONS: HUMANITIES AND CARCERAL IMAGINARIES

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018

This edited anthology explores the nexus between violence and carcerality within the discursive order of state practices. Scholars within humanities, engaging with critiques of carcerality in relation to state violence from different global contexts are welcome to contribute to this anthology. This volume aims to align with the larger objectives envisioned by activist groups such as M4BL (Movement for Black Lives): building alliances with indigenous people’s struggles, political prisoners’ solidarity work, and activists resisting violence against women and LGBTQIA communities. It explores the potential to forge a global discursive order oriented toward anticolonial liberation struggles.

The Charge of the Light Brigade: Half a Century Onward

A One-Day Symposium

Friday 18 May 2018, The Void Cinema, Sheffield Hallam University

 

Next year sees the fiftieth anniversary of the release of Woodfall Films’ epic production The Charge of the Light Brigade. While the film suffered from director Tony Richardson’s fractious relationship with the critics when it first appeared, it has subsequently assumed a totemic significance in British cinema history, embracing the anti-imperial values of the 1960s counter-culture in its depiction of one of the great disasters of British military history.

Victorian Animal Encounters: A one day conference University of Portsmouth UK, 4 May 2018  Keynote speaker: Dr Jane Hamlett, Royal Holloway “I went to show my friend Pigott the grave of the illustrious Shelley. Approaching the resting-place of the divine poet in a bright sunlight, the finest black Tom you ever saw discovered at an incredible distance that a catanthropist had entered the cemetery—rushed up at a gallop with his tail at right-angles to his spine—turned over on his back with his four paws in the air, and said in the language of cats: ‘Shelley be hanged! Come and tickle me!’ I stooped and tickled him. We were both profoundly affected.” (Wilkie Collins, letter to his mother, 1866).
