"POSTHUMANISM: A STUDY IN TWENTY-FIRST-CENTURY PERSPECTIVES"

The world and human civilisation are governed by rapid and gradual changes. In order to perceive and explore these changes - among other disciplines of literature and social sciences - posthumanism was developed very late in the 20th century as a literary-philosophical approach to interpreting these changes.

The Emotional Lives of English Teachers: Stories from Our Classrooms (Edited Collection)

Every teacher has a voice and a story to tell. Our stories matter. Not only do they matter, but as Lad Tobin has argued, acknowledging our emotions and our stories is essential if we are going to be effective teachers of writing and literature. As human beings, we cannot disconnect from our emotions. It is through the sharing of our stories that true learning and meaning occur.

People respond in accordance to how you relate to them. If you approach them on the basis of violence, that's how they'll react. But if you say, 'We want peace, we want stability,' we can then do a lot of things that will contribute to the progress of our society.

Chapters may cover any fairytale or any fantastical creature that features strongly in Asian fairytale—baku, dokkaebi, kappa, kitsune / huli jing / gumiho, qilin, yuki onna, etc etc.

As Russia began its invasion of Ukraine earlier this year, we saw a massive outpouring of
support and statements of solidarity from different corners of the globe. This news brought
conflict to the fore of white, US- and Euro-centric consciousness in a way that Palestine,
Kashmir, Yemen, Somalia, Afghanistan, and Armenia had failed to do. This impulse to
selectively engage and empathize invites a careful consideration of which conflicts find space
and articulation in particular discourses and, perhaps more importantly, which do not. We invite
you to think with us on conflict - excavate the ways in which it challenges or reinforces

Negation | Call for papers
Graduate student conference, dept. of German Studies, Brown University | Feb. 17 & 18, 2023 | in person

What “no” does, is not nothing. This proposition implies that we have understood what it is to say no, that its effects are predictable, and that it is involved with “doing,” with “being,” and with “things.” It also asks us to answer the question: what is “not-no,” and what is “yes”? Negation is not only not- positing, but, depending on the thinker, it is the engine of history, the enigma of the will, the guarantor or violator of being, the weapon of oppression, the foothold of theology, the urgent task of language.

Conference "Antropocene 4800. Letteratura, ambiente: ecocritica"

Sunday, November 27, 2022 - 3:08pm
University of Florence, FORLILPSI Departement
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, January 15, 2022

In July 2022, some meteorologists renamed the most extreme of the heat waves with the name of "Apocalypse 4800", in reference to the exceptional temperatures recorded at high altitudes and the consequent rise of the freezing level at the summit of Monte Bianco (4800 meters). Net of a rhetoric rooted in a series of contradictory emotions – that place human subject between «fear and domination, veneration and control» (Scaffai 2016) towards nature – it is undeniable how the current climate crisis leads us to reflect on the precarious equilibrium of the Anthropocene (Crutzen 2002). But in becoming culturally dominant (Benedetti 2021), the Anthropocene raises further questions about the role of literature and storytelling in a broader sense.
