Following our first two Youngsters conferences in Vancouver (2016) and Toronto (2019), the Association for Research in Cultures of Young People invites paper, panel, and roundtable proposals for Youngsters 3: Undisciplined to be held at the University of Calgary from June 6-8, 2024.

Youngsters 3 is a celebration of the unruly, the irreverent, and the defiant as these qualities pertain to young people, the social and imaginative worlds they inhabit and create, and the many scholarly discourses that aim to study them.

For hundreds of artists who died of AIDS-related causes, only scant traces of their work—if any at all—exist in institutional archival repositories. Therefore, art-historical work revolving around the ongoing HIV/AIDS pandemic has often called for inventive archival methods that blend traditional forms of research with community work and emotional labor. Over the last fifteen years, scholars and activists have contended with the gaps and erasures in such archives as well as the geographic, racial, and gender biases that have characterized many historical projects. In so doing, many have necessarily drawn on and even created community-based repositories, personal collections, and oral history initiatives.

Making Space: Women’s Agency within a Patriarchal Hegemony

It is often said that well-behaved women seldom make history. Yet, simply because they are not the subject of multivolume biographies does not mean that “well-behaved” women did not have agency in their daily lives. This panel seeks to highlight the agentic force of the medieval women who did not subvert the patriarchal norms of their time. How did medieval women make use of patriarchal norms to their own advantage? Specifically, how did religious women, lay or monastic, live their own lives, create their own spaces, and make their own choices within the medieval patriarchal hegemony?

Extremely Online: The Internet and Connectivity in the 21st Century Novel

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 1, 2023

Though the Internet has been around since the 1980s, the “Internet novel” as a genre has only really emerged in the last decade or so. We can think of Lauren Oyler’s Fake Accounts (2021), Patricia Lockwood’s No One Is Talking About This (2021), and Calvin Kasulke’s Several People Are Typing (2021) as notable recent examples. Each of these novels take as their topic the particular and peculiar confines of the digital world we live in. Lockwood has described this sensation as falling through a “long void that never reaches the bottom,” while Brandon Taylor claims that “the Internet Novel captures some of the weird Gothic horror that white people have come, by way of their new digital Calvinism, to accept as being inherent to digital life.”

Vulnerability Studies is a multidisciplinary field of research that examines the complex interplay between individuals, communities, and systems in the face of various risks and challenges. This area of study delves into the conditions, processes, and consequences of vulnerability, aiming to understand and address the underlying factors that contribute to the exposure and susceptibility of individuals and groups to harm or disadvantage. Scholars engaging in Vulnerability Studies draw from diverse disciplines such as sociology, psychology, geography, economics, and public health to investigate a wide range of contexts, including social inequalities, environmental degradation, economic crises, political conflicts, and public health emergencies.

Adaptation and Crisis: Presences and Absences of the Medieval – IMC 2024

updated: 
Wednesday, August 2, 2023 - 11:57am
Amber Dunai
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 28, 2023

Discussion of the presence of the medieval in a postmedieval world is often subtly suggestive of peril, with the medieval figuratively positioned in relation to potential crisis. The term adaptation alone may conjure up associations with evolution, (re)production, and – by association – death and extinction. More generally, the term suggests the need to respond to changing contexts, concerns, and audiences, carrying with it the implication that a lack of action will lead to decline. Talk of medieval afterlives goes even further: here, texts are imagined as already dead, sustaining a (perhaps ghostly or uncanny) presence past a natural lifetime.

Reading Love's Martyr (a two-day conference at Christ Church, Oxford, 4-5 January 2024)

First published in 1601, Love’s Martyr is usually read in parts. One part in particular, William Shakespeare’s poem on the phoenix and the turtle-dove, has won the book its lasting reputation – but at the cost  of consigning the rest of it to obscurity. Only over recent decades, with the revival of interest in Shakespeare’s poetry, have scholars found more to say about the collection as a whole. Thanks to them, Shakespeare’s untitled poem – usually known as ‘The Phoenix and Turtle’ – has increasingly been read in the context of the volume’s ‘Poeticall Essaies’, where Shakespeare features alongside John Marston, Ben Jonson, and George Chapman.

Displacement

 

 

This is a funded, weeklong workshop hosted by the Department of English, University of Hyderabad and Co-Sponsored by the South-South Forum at Dartmouth College.

 

Description:

Diasporas are formed by either gradual accretion of immigrants, or sudden expulsion of huge masses. While the former is often viewed as a voluntary movement, the latter results from forced dispersal. One of the defining characteristics of migration – voluntary or forced – is that of displacement.

The Charles Olson Society will host panels at the upcoming Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture, to be held in Louisville, Kentucky, February 22nd – 24th. When Charles Olson stated in “The Gate and the Center” that “the poet is the only pedagogue left, to be trusted,” his experiences at Black Mountain College, Buffalo, and the University of Connecticut as a poet-teacher were still on the horizon.
