MSA Columbus: Suicidal Modernisms

CFP: Suicidal Modernisms

 

In Andrew Bennett’s recently published Suicide Century (2017), the author writes that suicide “streams like a poison through the tainted life blood of the modernist literary canon.”  And yet work on modernism and suicide is scarce; in fact, work on “literary suicidology” more generally has not matched the subject’s importance to our field.  This panel would like to build on the work of Bennett and a few others (Al Alvarez, Jeffrey Berman) and examine the representation and non-representation of suicide in modernist texts.

Digital Identities **EXTENDED DEADLINE**

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 7, 2018

Conceptions of identity, community, and space are given a new dimension in the digital age. Particularly since the mid 20th century, there has been a significant interest in the myriad ways that human identity is developed and expressed through technology. Researchers have adopted new tools and adapted old ones in order to account for the ways in which the digital serves to inform, organize, record, and explain both individual and communal identity. It is this flexibility to both adopt new tools and critically interrogate them that is at the center of digital humanities.

Call for Papers Annual International Conference July 2, 2018: Identity and Memory in War and Peacebuilding

Date of the Conference: July 2, 2018

Place: Hope Park Campus, Liverpool Hope University, Hope Park Liverpool L16 9JD

Deadline for paper submissions: April 1, 2018

Identity and memory play key overlapping roles in both war and peacebuilding. Indeed, the construction of collective identities can make a difference between choosing war or choosing more peaceful paths to dispute resolution. Identity is also deeply entwined in the ways we choose to remember past wars, through commemorations and memorials.
