Gender and Medieval Studies Conference 2018: Gender, Identity, Iconography

Corpus Christi College, Oxford, 

8th-10th January 2018

 

The glittering beauty of the Alfred Jewel, the rich illustration of the Lindisfarne Gospels, the dominating Great West Window of York Minster, the intricate embroidery of the Bayeux Tapestry, the luminous Maestà of Duccio, the opulent Oseberg ship burial, and the sophisticated imagery of the Ruthwell cross are all testament to the centrality of the visual to our understanding of a range of medieval cultures.

Sylvia Townsend Warner and Modernism Conference

Today, when political misinformation abounds, nationalism and Fascism have reappeared, and we find ourselves contending with ideology in simple, complex and covert forms, Sylvia Townsend Warner’s writing seems ever more relevant. In turns insightful, comic, cutting, and poignant, her texts ask what art is for, and how we might navigate personal relationships, social change, belief and the past. Warner has an acute sense of the relationship between material conditions and human consciousness, of place and the ordinary. This conference seeks papers that analyse her importance for studies of, among other possibilities, modernism, politics (specifically communism), gender and sexuality.

Gower and Temporalities

updated:

The Gower Project
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 19, 2017

When Gower says in the Vox Clamantis that the writings of the past provide examples for the future ("Scripture veteris capiunt exempla futuri") or when he envisions a statue of time made of the clay feet of the present and the golden head of the past, or when he mixes multiple temporalities together, such visions indicate not only that history has the capacity to repeat itself, but that the past and the future are implicated in the present moment. Such constructions of temporality challenge linear models based upon uninterrupted chronologies, diachronic progression, and narratives of continuity based upon heterosexual marriage, biological reproduction, and patrilineage.

Gower and Sound

The Gower Project

Wednesday, July 19, 2017

In rhetorical repetitions that adorn the Confessio Amantis's plain style, in the many references to animal noises in the Visio Anglie, in the bird song punctuating the lovers' speeches in the Cinkante Balades and more, the fourteenth-century poet John Gower shapes sounds and encourages an aural reception of his trilingual corpus. Just as Gower often argues for the preservation of knowledge and philosophies developed in the classical world, so it can be maintained that the phonics of his verse preserve a literary ecology: one in which repetitions reverberate with both Ciceronian and sermonic orations, animal noises recall Aesop's fables, and bird song evokes Virgil's sherpherds.

The Art of Artertainment: Nobrow, American Style
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 1, 2017

Many of our current cultural practices are marked by a union of art and entertainment. Underlined by all-pervasive processes of globalization and digitalization, this union comes in all shapes and sizes, transforming culture so that it can no longer be comfortably classified as high or low, art or genre. Surprisingly, this ‘art of artertainment’ has not, as yet, attracted much scholarly interest. It is with the aim of overcoming this omission that we launch this call for papers.
