 The Doctorate in Linguistic, Literary and Intercultural Studies in European and extra-European Perspectives of the University of Milan is pleased to announce the organization of the Sc[Arti] conference to be held at the University of Milan on 7, 8 and 9 November 2018.  Flotsam does not exist in itself: there are no concepts nor entities that intrinsically possess this connotation. Rather, "flotsam" is the residue of a selection process based on shared convictions and conventions, which takes place in time and space according to individual and community dynamics.

We Want the Wilderness: Essays Examining Franchise Storytelling

 

We contend that inventive storytelling within media franchises, such as Star Wars and Marvel, becomes hampered by the commercial needs of business on one side and the fans’ desires for continuity and references—in the forms of callbacks—on the other. We Want the Wilderness: Essays Examining Franchise Storytelling will look for moments when content producers were able to skillfully negotiate (or avoid all together) these dual pressures or, conversely, when these pressures created insurmountable obstacles to storytelling.

Why, I can smile, and murder whiles I smile,
And cry 'Content' to that which grieves my heart,
And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
And frame my face to all occasions.
I'll drown more sailors than the mermaid shall;
I'll slay more gazers than the basilisk;
I'll play the orator as well as Nestor,
Deceive more slily than Ulysses could,
And, like a Sinon, take another Troy.
I can add colours to the chameleon,

Before social welfare could exist, it needed to be imagined.

The epoch when the full establishment of the concept of the welfare state in the U.K. and other European countries occurred, 1890-1948, indeed coincides with the phenomenon of European Modernism, conceived here not just as an aesthetic, but as a socio-political phenomenon of visionary reform. The dazzling achievements of the 1890s-1940s interms of modernist arts have been minutely charted over the past decades, and the modernist context superbly brought to life. While much has been made of the interactions between Modernism / suffrage or Modernism / war, however, another epoch-making social revolution was underway, whose correlation with the arts remains more tenuous.
