Death in Public

In “Sex in Public,” Berlant and Warner urged us to consider how sex—something seemingly private—is indeed “mediated by publics.” Similar to Berlant and Warner, we investigate how the concept of death, broadly defined, was determined, imagined, augmented, and regulated as a public spectacle throughout the nineteenth century.

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

International Workshop / University of Mannheim, 14-15 June 2024

This conference takes its cue from the fact that various topical tendencies and events have refuelled interest in landscapes and the countryside in recent years, be it the climate crisis, the crisis of national identity in the context of the Brexit debate or reconsiderations of Britain’s colonial past. It aims at exploring the multi-layered interest in British and Irish landscapes in the 21st century, as writers and researchers alike critically engage with the ideologically charged notion of the countryside by re-reading and reconfiguring popular tropes.

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.

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.
