Constant transformation has been the norm in the new digital media environment since its inception. During the 2020 health crisis, the impact of this ever-changing digital world in our daily lives has been especially notable. Due to quarantine measures, the only opportunity to interact with friends and to consume culture was to rely on social networks, streaming services and video conferencing softwares. Web-based cultural activities have affected people’s relationships with cyberspace: many have visited museums, seen award ceremonies, and even been to concerts online. In other words, we are never disconnected from the Internet (DeNardis 2020).

Hopkins and His Environments” 

A virtual international conference, 24‒26 June 2021

From the Cliffs of Moher to the Valley of the Elwy, from leafy countrysides to city centres “smeared” with everyday life, Gerard Manley Hopkins was acutely attuned to environmental conditions. The 2021 international Hopkins conference, to be held virtually 24 to 26 June 2021, will consider the many environments in which he worked: natural, textual, aesthetic, political, theological, Jesuitical, and social.

3rd Annual Crossroads Humanities Student Conference: "Networks"

Thursday, November 19, 2020 - 11:29pm
Humanities Center / Nova Southeastern University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 15, 2021

Information, resources, and diseases are all things that are communicable across real and imagined borders. They are transmitted by the World Wide Web, television, highways and trains, diasporas, marketplaces, governments, viral media, social events, casual associations, the human system, and more. Networks as a model and metaphor for examining the structures of societies, politics, culture, and the body appear in seminal texts across disciplines, including Norbert Wiener’s Cybernetics (1948), Michel Foucault’s Discipline and Punish (1975), Jean-François Lyotard’s The Postmodern Condition (1979), Donna Haraway’s “A Cyborg Manifesto” (1985), and Timothy Morton’s Ecological Thought (2010).

“The book always aims at installing an order, whether it is the order in which it is deciphered, the order in which it is to be understood, or the order intended by the authority who commanded or permitted the work.” (Roger Chartier, The Order of the Book)

If, according to Roger Chartier, “the book always aims at installing an order,” what does it mean for the book to be out of order? Is it broken? Is it committing some kind of transgression? Is it still a book? What is a book supposed to do, and what does it mean when it falls short of its perceived functions – or overshoots them?
