The Symbolic Symposium is a new free online education project hosted by Clockworks Academy. We put on regular online talks for general audiences. Talks are hosted live and followed by a live Q&A, and the talk without the Q&A is then made widely available for free.

We welcome paper proposals on any aspect of classical reception as "entanglement" across the Middle Ages (c. 650-1550). Papers will be presented at Leeds International Medieval Conference (3-6 July, 2023).
South Asian literary works have given us a memorable array of complex portraits of women and men and the relations between them. Some characters favor traditional modes of understanding the roles and behaviors of the sexes and their interrelations, others seem oriented to a progressive outlook on gender and the relations relations between women, men and non-binary individuals, while still others apparently embody a mixture of these attitudes. May we discern patterns or differences in matters of gender and gender relations when taking into account whether the authors in question identify as female, male, or non-binary?

Location: Ulster University, Coleraine, Northern Ireland, UK
To be held: 3rd, November 2022
Keynote: to be delivered by Dr Malcolm Guite
This "call for chapters" is for a collection through Lexington Press (which has approved the concept and is awaiting the chapter list). The focus of this collection is mentorship as portrayed in shonen anime.
Shonen anime is loaded with mentors. Some are insightful, benevolent, and effective. Boku no Hero Academia’s All Might is one such mentor. His treatment of Midoriya is founded in compassion. And, All Might himself is a beloved leader. Who he is before the camera is the same as when there are no cameras to be found (excluding his physically transformation, of course). He is a model mentor.

Etymologically, the term “resilience”--from the Latin re- and salire, “to leap in return”--refers to the capability of a thing, in response to some stimulus, to return to its original form or state. The term connotes a dual activity, simultaneously an undoing and a rebuilding. But in Indigenous contexts, under the realities of settler-colonialism, the aspiration to “return to original form” is a fraught enterprise, as it inevitably encounters the romanticized conceptual dichotomies of traditional / modern, sedentary / nomadic, cultural / political, and historical / mythical.

Streaming a movie. Waiting in line for gas. Drinking a tall glass of water. These are day-to-day experiences that rely on forms of energy and natural resource extraction that are often hidden in plain view, entangled with dynamics of colonialism, transnational flows, digital assemblages, stock markets and neoliberalism. The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly made these entanglements more felt. As such, we are tasked with unraveling these complex embodied and sensorial daily experiences of energy and extraction.
The 4th Global Conference on Women’s Studies, November 24_26, 2022 in London, UK, encourages all to present their recent research work. This conference is considered a prestigious event organized with the motivation to provide an excellent international platform for academics, researchers, managers, industrial participants, and students to share their research findings with global experts. All full paper submissions will be peer-reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research depth, accuracy, and relevance with the theme of the conference.
In the 1990s, transgressive fiction authors like Chuck Palahniuk, Bret Easton Ellis, and Irvine Welsh shocked, disgusted, and offended audiences with their depictions of terrorizing, murdering, and drug-abusing characters whose bad behavior rejected and subverted the Western hegemony of neoliberalism. But their behavior was only seen as “shocking” or “transgressive” because of its blatant opposition to the dominant paradigm. What does it mean to transgress norms, boundaries, and conventions in today’s post-9/11 world, when the paradigms of whiteness, masculinity, heteronormativity, etc. are not necessarily viewed as the ultimate gatekeepers of what is normal, standard, correct, or expected?
