Essays are invited from ecocritics, ecofeminists, ecopsychologists, Medievalists, and scholars for an anthology to be tentatively titled Eco D'Arthur: Green Camelot. The direction of current scholarhsip in ecocriticism focuses on science, ecology, and nature writing. More attention needs to be given to older literature, and in British literature, the medieval period. Though some attention has been given to Chaucer and to the period in general, there is relatively little ecocritical scholarship on Arthurian myth. This book- length work will analyze Arthurian myth through ecocritical/ecopsychological/ecofeminist perspectives. Indivudual essays might include:

The field of digital humanities is still hard-to-define, and one open to many interpretations and ideas but also criticism. The term made its first appearance in A Companion to Digital Humanities in 2004, and it has become very popular ever since. However, although it is more and more common to see new courses on digital humanities, the application and delivery of this new area in Italian courses on culture, history and literature is rather limited. This panel seeks to fill this gap by seeking papers that explore different methodologies of traditional teaching with the use of digital resources in courses that also promote student acquisition of technology literacy and collaborative projects.

In the decades following the Second World War, the American family assumed an unprecedented cultural and political importance in the life of the nation. Happy families were everywhere: beaming enthusiastically from magazine advertisements and indulging in wholesome hijinks on ubiquitous post-war sitcoms. However, while the typical post-war family may conjure up images of white picket fences, exuberant children playing on green lawns, and pies cooling on windowsills, a sinister reimagining of American domesticity emerged in the pages of pulp novels and popular magazines.

The clash of people and civilizations from East to West has been a particularly rich, varied, and intense development in history. Formulating new identities, while being surrounded by foreign space and native people, the traveler reflects the changing modes, times, and equally shifting cultural attitudes that can be found in a European’s travel writing. For instance, a glimpse across time into the city of Istanbul, held as a popular travel spot by visitors for centuries, reveals varied cultures, groups of people and their diverse linguistic uses, food choices, social norms and religious customs.

This session deals with film and history in Latin America. The films in discussion should reflect the major historical moments in the region beginning with the age of “discovery” and conquest, colonial rule and independent times.

Under this historical umbrella, the films in this session should address issues of civilización y barbarie, race, slavery, political persecution, misogyny, homophobia and revolution (among others). Participants should be cognizant that visual narratives dealing with race, class, gender, sexuality, language, nation, and identity reflect philosophical tenets prevalent in particular historical moments.

In this seminar we seek to explore stories and representations of injustice and violence that probe audiences’ ethical responsibilities and complicities.  What representational strategies have writers and artists used to challenge discursive frameworks that underpin erasures and exclusions and to invite readers and viewers to assess their implication in systematic injustices? What historical and contemporary responsibilities are excluded by current political discourses on violence and reconciliation? For example, how do the frameworks of mainstream western news and political discourses exclude discussion of North American and European roles in the conditions that precipitate current refugee movements?
