Echoes of the Earth: Interplay of Literature and Landscape

Throughout history, terrestrial landscapes have captivated human curiosity, serving as a significant muse for creative practitioners. Whether it be the enigmatic allure of towering mountains, the mystical charm of dense forests, or the vast expanse of oceans, the natural environment has served as a symbolic platform for portraying human existence, emotive expression, and contemplation of the human condition.

Speaking the Unspeakable: Representing Trauma

updated: 
Tuesday, April 16, 2024 - 4:39pm
Allie Wood Reichert / PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2024

The representation of traumatic experience is a fraught conversation in literary and media studies. Cathy Caruth famously argued for the “unspeakability” of trauma; other scholars such as Naomi Mandel argue that emphasizing the limits of language can inadvertently silence, restrict, and ignore the material and corporeal existence of suffering. This session invites panelists to consider representing and witnessing trauma as acts of translation across the border of un/representability. Although our central question originates in discussions of language and texts, panelists are also encouraged to consider trauma’s appearance across disciplines and forms, such as visual culture, media, and/or performance.

Ekphrasis and the Music of Literature

updated: 
Tuesday, April 16, 2024 - 4:39pm
Diana Shaffer / PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2024

This panel invites papers that explore how ekphrasis and musical form translate verbal language from one realm of sensory experience into another. Ekphrasis translates words into visual images, whereas musical form translates them into sounds and rhythms. Although ekphrasis and musical form mirror words, they directly affect the emotions at a primordial level not available to verbal articulation. How do music and the visual arts compare to literature? What are the differences between these modes of expression and how they affect their audiences? Proposals on ekphrasis, musical poetry, poetic music, or theories of intermediality from all periods are welcomed.

« The Translator at Work: Neutrality in Translation and Interpreting »

Translators and interpreters are expected to be neutral mediators who facilitate dialogue and enable understanding and cooperation between speakers who do not speak the same language. Research has shown, however, that the transfer of information from one language to another is rarely performed without making certain contributions that go beyond the mere rendition of the message being transferred. Translation is a product of cross-cultural interactions that requires linguistic and at times, sociopolitical or even ideological changes.

Masculinity Studies in Ireland: Mapping the Field

updated: 
Tuesday, April 16, 2024 - 4:19pm
Angelos Bollas / Maynooth university
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 30, 2024

As an interdisciplinary academic field devoted to examining and critiquing the social, cultural, and historical constructions of masculinity, masculinity studies explores how masculinity is defined, performed, and experienced across different societies and time periods. This field intersects with various disciplines, including sociology, gender studies, psychology, cultural studies, and history, among others. This often leads to the absence of dedicated departments or research centres in academic institutions focusing exclusively on masculinity studies which, in turn, makes it challenging to enable productive dialogues among disciplinary boundaries.
