The Borders and Crossings international conference series is dedicated to the study of travel writing. It was first hosted in Derry in 1998 thanks to the work of Glenn Hooper and Tim Youngs and since 2012 has taken place on a regular basis. The Borders and Crossings conference series has played a catalytic role in the development of travel writing studies as it provides a forum for scholars across a range of disciplines and from wide variety of national contexts to meet regularly, to explore an increasingly rich corpus of travel writing, and to debate its importance to the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.

Graduate Conference in English and the Humanities

Southern Illinois University, Carbondale

April 1st, 2023

Conference will be held virtually, via Zoom. There is no registration fee for this conference.

 

There is power in the written word. It can take us on journeys, convey the nuanced as well as the palpable, and compel us to feel. It can also empower us to act, to challenge, and to overcome.

Writing can be a form of claiming – or reclaiming – our time, our space, and our voice. It’s an opportunity to fight feelings of powerlessness —Susan Taylor

Saturday, April 1, 2023

The Vernon press is issuing the following call for contributions to the collective volume

William Shakespeare: Tensions and Tempest

Though scholars indicate a few later works, The Tempest can be read as Shakespeare’s last play, and as such, sums up the various interests, concerns and themes that inform his work, be it the magic of peripheral spaces, the rivalries for power, or the social relationships that bind family and class. In short, The Tempest is Shakespeare’s Testament.

Chapter contributions are welcomed for an edited scholarly volume on the global impact of streaming services, crucially Netflix. The American company Netflix has, owing to its pioneering role, become synonymous with the world of streaming. The growing list of “Netflix Nations” (to invoke the title of Ramon Lobato’s 2019 book) means that there are only a few territories such as China, Iran, North Korea, and Syria that remain outside its purview. In recent years, a number of streaming giants have emerged in the Western world– mostly notably, Amazon and Disney+ –that compete tightly within international markets.
