Designing Urban Universities

Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin

Thursday 22 to Saturday 24 June 2023

There is a growing dissonance between the urban university as often perceived—its physical, architectural, and emblematic form, its legacy structures and spaces, its time-honoured functions and traditions—and the university as a knowledge factory within the city, subject to political, commercial, and environmental pressures. But this is not a new dissonance. Architectural and design histories can uncover how, across diverse cases, it has often shaped the urban university internally and in its relationship with the city.

Her literary works, from The Women of Brewster Place (1982), a NationalBook Award winning novel, to her fictional memoir, 1996, portray the communities that Black women build to resist, survive, and even thrive against the racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia that confines and violates them.

Julie Tanner
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 8, 2023

Lydia Davis is an award-winning author of nine short story collections, a novel, two volumes of essays, and a translator of Maurice Blanchot, Michael Leiris, Marcel Proust, and Gustave Flaubert. Beginning her career amidst the second wave of postmodernism, her very short stories - some only a paragraph or even a sentence long - have drawn comparisons with postmodern metafiction, literary minimalism, and LANGUAGE poetry. Her eclectic interests and unexpected manipulation of genre and form, however, frequently defy categorisation.

The Uses and Abuses of Civility, 1500-1700',

26th-27th May 2023, Université de Neuchâtel, Switzerland.

This conference provides an opportunity for scholars to re-examine early modern Europe’s fascination with civil conduct. What actions were performed in the name of civility, and who benefitted from the culture of civility that flourished in early modern Europe? How were codes of manners popularly used to justify the stratification of society within and outside of Europe? What legacy has the genre of conduct literature left behind?

We welcome papers that provide new analyses of:

Fashion and literature have a long, intricate relationship. The function of clothing is primarily to conceal the body, yet in some literary texts and film, clothing can often reveal something about character, whether by its style, value, or use. In the 1928 novels, Plum Bun and Quicksand, Jessie Redmon Fauset and Nella Larsen, respectively, highlight fashion as an essential tool for passing, as well as the embodiment of their characters’ elusive identities.

Big Feminism: The Fiftieth Anniversary Issue of Signs

updated: 
Friday, January 27, 2023 - 1:32am
Signs
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 1, 2023

Signs was founded in 1975 as part of an emergent tradition of feminist scholarship and has been publishing continuously ever since, establishing itself as a preeminent journal in the field of women’s, gender, and sexuality studies. At the time of the journal’s conception, Signs’s founding editorial staff sought not only to raise consciousness and develop theories around women’s oppression but also to challenge the taken-for-granted and to strive for theoretical nuance and interdisciplinarity. To honor half a century of publication, our fiftieth anniversary issue aims to generate new questions and critical discussion around “Big Feminism,” around the role and power of feminist theory, today and into the future.
