“Environment at the Margins” and Global Anglophone/Postcolonial African Novels-ASLE Panel

updated: 
Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - 3:51pm
Oklahoma State University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, December 10, 2018

Byron Caminero-Santangelo and Garth A. Myers describe peripheral African environments as “Environment at the Margins” in the book of the same title. The field of postcolonial ecocriticism, which has been flourishing over the past one decade, is now widely perceived to be an interdisciplinary, transnational, and comparative field of inquiry as it recognizes the complexities of interdisciplinary dialogues and critiques a universalizing or homogenizing impulse of capitalism, colonialism, and imperialism.

Mad, Bad, and Dangerous Texts:

Controversies in Reading, Writing, Editing, and Printing

 

Please circulate widely.

 

In addition to conveying controversial ideas, books themselves have both committed and inspired mad, bad, and dangerous behaviour. The production and consumption of printed matter can be subversive, destructive, or downright criminal. Studying books as material objects reveals controversies that are fascinating in their own right, regardless of the subject matter between their covers.

Graduate Students in English 2019 Conference

“Opening Doors:Creating Opportunities for Difficult Conversations”

March 9, 2019

Starting conversations on difficult topics can seem insurmountable at times. The 2019 GSE Conference focuses on how texts (books, tv shows, films, social media, etc.) open the door to difficult conversations, offering the opportunity for enlightenment and understanding in a time seemingly bereft of both.

Seminar: From Life to Afterlives: Creative Re-presentation in the Premodern World

updated: 
Wednesday, October 10, 2018 - 4:01pm
Sewanee Medieval Colloquium
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 21, 2018

Organizer: Alison Frazier, University of Texas, Austin

DESCRIPTION:

Across the pre-modern world, biography in all media focused largely on rulers, warrior heroes, and spiritual adepts. Such figures, historical or not, were understood to embody virtues worth preserving, admiring and, on occasion, imitating. Thus, the global phenomena of afterlives: creative re-presentations that aimed to secure the posthumous life, or life-effect, of the hero. The topic of afterlives encourages pursuit of a global and comparative pre-modernity that remains generously local, conceptually and theoretically astute, and disciplinarily diverse.

HEALING THE MIND/BODY/SOUL: COMMUNITY, ACTIVISM, AND JUSTICE IN EDUCATION

“Action on behalf of life transforms. Because the relationship between self and the world is reciprocal, it is not a question of first getting enlightened or saved and then acting. As we work to heal the earth, the earth heals us.”
