The historical texts known as the Brut, based on the legendary history of Britain introduced by Geoffrey of Monmouth, survives in multiple prose and poetic versions.  The English prose Brut, for instance, was the most widely copied and circulated text next to Wycliffe’s Bible in fourteenth-century England.  Many of these texts have been brought to light in the past two decades, through new discoveries and digitalization of known manuscripts, adding to our growing knowledge of the dissemination of the Brut tradition.  This session invites papers that share findings about the Brut manuscripts, including new evidence in individual manuscripts, comparisons of variant texts, and examination of paleographic and codicological

Popularized by Geoffrey of Monmouth in his History of the Kings of Britain (1136), the legendary history of the Britons known as the Brut was read, translated, supplemented, and transformed through many languages, genres, and art media, during the Medieval and Early Modern periods.  The Brut, including the Arthuriad, has accordingly been the subject of a considerable amount of scholarship and criticism, examining its lasting influence on history, poetry, art, and culture of the regions where it circulated.  This session continues the scholarly conversations on the Brut introduced at the 2021 Brut in New Troy conference and welcomes papers that take an interdisciplinary, multilingual, and/or inter-generic approach to the

In the winter of 2022, with the launch of ChatGPT and the pursuit of advancing Large Language Models, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning quickly appeared in the mainstream of the social, scientific, and artistic debate. While the use of AI in social and scientific development is widely accepted and advanced in art and creative work, the presence of AI is not so obvious and undisputed. Many artists reach for AI as a tool enabling them to accomplish their artistic intentions. At the same time, AI is not original and has already raised plagiarism and copyright problems within the context of the arts, including visual art.

‘Feminism’ , according to the Oxford Dictionary , is defined as a “belief in and advocacy of
the political , economic and social equality of the sexes expressed especially through
organized activity on behalf of women’s rights and interests”. From the various
spheres of feminism , ‘feminine feminism’ has become a quite attractive topic ,
especially among women . It suggests women not to sacrifice her identity for the
patriarchal society , both physically and mentally , be powerful and strong . Though ,
