What is a good life? Scholars often attempt to answer this question by examining people’s ideals. Exemplified by Joel Robbins’ call of “the anthropology of the good,” anthropologists are encouraged to make ethnographic inquiries into qualities that are “imaginatively conceived” to be desirable and even “outstripped” the immediate realities (2013, 457). In other words, the scholarly examination of the “good life” has long been domesticated in the realm of thoughts and beliefs, insulated from that of the lived experiences.

ICMS 2025: Exploring Complaint in the Middle Ages and Early Modern Period - Traditions and Transformations of Complaint

updated:

Complaint is as easy to identify in medieval and early modern literature as it is challenging to define. One need not look far in premodern literature to find a figure railing against Fortune, a forsaken woman grieving her loss, or a character critiquing the injustices of society in mournful, sometimes bitter, tones. A polymorphous literary form, complaint can function as satire, prayer, and elegy; yet it is also a distinct form, sometimes described as a mode or a genre.Though complaint is inextricably linked to grief, the role it plays in grief management has been shown to vary greatly, sometimes working to temper or mobilize a character’s grief and at other times paradoxically multiplying it.

​In our postmodern world there are a lot of questions that should be re-considered and re-defined. What does it mean to fight against colonialism and racism in the world of migration crisis and xenophobic attitudes towards minorities? What does it mean to be a postcommunist country in the face of the common nostalgia for order and rules? How is it possible to have a national identity being aware of the relative character of every national feature?

Call for Abstracts: Video Game Monsters Edited Collection

MultiPlay is delighted to announce that we are working on a new edited collection – Video Game Monsters: A Compendium

Monsters have been the foundation of the video game industry. They’ve been the bosses to beat, the enemies to avoid, the NPCs we’ve sometimes forged unlikely bonds with. Monsters are the true avatar of video games, and there has been an increase of work and attention in this area, such as Player v.s Monster (Svelch, 2023). MultiPlay feels the time is right for a special collection examining monsters in all of their video game forms, creating a thorough compendium of the monstrous history of video games. As Martin points out, video games studies has barely began to reckon with monsters (2023, np)

Literature and More-Than-Human Encounters in India: A 2-day workshop on Human-Wildlife Conflict in Indian Literature

INDIAN ANIMAL STUDIES COLLECTIVE
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 15, 2024

The increasing prevalence of human-wildlife conflict (HWC) in India has become a critical environmental and social issue. As human populations expand and encroach on natural habitats, interactions between humans and wildlife have escalated, often resulting in tragic outcomes for both. Discourses surrounding HWC are often deeply anthropocentric, framing wildlife primarily as predators and emphasizing human losses, such as crop and livestock damage, typically tied to economic activity. This perspective predominantly highlights negative interactions, with scant attention given to positive encounters or the broader ecological and cultural benefits of coexistence.

In a 2023 article, the Black British writer Derek Owusu describes the transformative experience of reading D. H. Lawrence’s St Mawr (1925) as simultaneously an awakening to language and to a wider sense of connectedness. ‘I don’t have the words to describe what happened to me while turning the pages of that short story,’ he writes, ‘but I know language became something three-dimensional, and everything around me seemed connected by an unexpressed narrative.’

Expanding Perspectives on Hoccleve and Gender

A Session of Papers at the 2025 International Congress of Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo, sponsored by the International Hoccleve Society

In his notoriously laddish introduction to The Minor Poems,Frederick Furnivall wishes that Thomas Hoccleve had been “a manlier fellow.” Furnivall’s judgment reflects straitened Victorian gender norms that have little to do with medieval reality. But Hoccleve’s relationship to masculinity, femininity, and the gender politics of his own era remains an open question in criticism.

Intersectionality in Literature, Linguistics and Translation

Ain Shams University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 1, 2024

In an age marked with conflict and strife, humanity is still searching for solutions to oppression and marginalization. In order to better understand the factors leading to these problems, Kimberlé Crenshaw first introduced the term “intersectionality” in 1989 to explain how a person’s intersecting identities such as gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, age, ability, nationality and religion affect their access to opportunities and privileges. In literary and linguistic studies, intersectionality is used as a framework of analysis that helps scholars examine how these factors fuel various issues, ranging from health inequity to climate change and how they are expressed, negotiated and at times resolved through texts.
