International Conference - Afterlives of Empire in the Public Imagination (Sapienza University of Rome)

CALL FOR PAPERS 

The resurgence of nationalist ideologies in Europe and the US has reignited interest in the histories and legacies of modern Empires. As of late, this has been strongly visible in the UK. The role of imperial nostalgia in the debates that paved the way for Brexit has drawn the attention of historians and cultural critics to how the memories and myths of Empire informed Europe-free imaginaries. Recent historical works have fruitfully investigated the legacies and memory of Empire in the UK and the unaddressed legacies of colonial rule, such as, in Caroline Elkins’s phrase, its “legac[ies] of violence”.

Textual-Sexual-Spiritual:Artistic Practice and Other Rituals as Queer Becoming and Beyond

Guest Editor: Dr. Jocelyn E. Marshall (Emerson College)

This issue of Rejoinder addresses the relationships between text/artwork, sexuality, and spirituality to navigate tensions of being and becoming. As E. L. McCallum and Mikko Tuhkanen have argued, the idea of ‘‘queer becoming” involves not only never “straightening up” and “flying right,” but also the possibility of “one’s becoming something other than queer” (2011, 10-11). How do our approaches to “becoming” allow us to cultivate community, extend work, shape praxis, guide pedagogy, and beyond?

‘Victorians and Animal Welfare: The Transnational Network in Literature, Culture and Intellectual Thought ’

updated: 
Tuesday, December 20, 2022 - 1:52pm
St. Hugh's College, Oxford, United Kingdom
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 10, 2023

The Victorian era in general viewed animals not as mere property or utility, but as thinking, feeling subjects worthy of inclusion within a political community. It is increasingly in this light that the nineteenth-century British animal welfare movement and animal characters in Victorian literature are now being re-examined. Rather than regarding the literary sphere as a means of generating static influence over human attitudes towards animals, the deliberations at this colloquium shall seek to prove that it may be regarded as a repository of resources open to uses in the ongoing animal rights movement of the later nineteenth century in Britain and as the stepping stones to deeper ecological consciousness of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 15, 2023

For two special issues of Diplomatica we invite proposals for essays on (1) the history and culture of diplomatic treaties; and (2) aspects of diplomacy’s relationship to literature. Essays may cover any historical period up to the present-day. The central questions that the special issues pose are:

(1) Treaties

– How and why have diplomatic texts evolved?

– How has their hermeneutics changed over time?

– Are treaties better understood as literary artifacts or as socio-political constructs?

– What can the evolution of treaties tell us about the evolution of diplomacy and the diplomatic profession?

(2) Literature

Tradition and Experimentation in Irish Literature since Modernism (Call for Articles)

Friday, March 31, 2023

The tension between adherence to traditional modes of expression, and experimentation has underlain modern Irish literature. Regarded as the epitome of Modernist experimental writing, James Joyce went so far in pushing the boundaries of what constituted prose as to become the object of criticism from such different commentators as Lukács and Pound, both of whom found fault with Joyce for the radicalness of experiment, particularly in Finnegans Wake. However, Joyce himself considered his work to be firmly set in the realist tradition. At a time when he was yet to publish his first collection of lyrics, W. B.

Today, as the workings of humanity are increasingly linked with the destruction wrought by the Anthropocene, ‘the era of man,’ we feel compelled to re-examine our links with human and other-than-human others ever more closely. Confronting numerous crises, hostilities and conflicts, as well as witnessing an unprecedented momentum of social, political, medical, technological and linguistic change, we are now facing the challenge of redefining our goals, policies and discourses within the field of the humanities yet again.

We welcome contributions addressing, but not limited to, the following topics:
