London Foundling Hospital History: An Online Conference

Group of Researchers of different Universities
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 3, 2023

The Hospital for the Maintenance and Education of Exposed and Deserted Young Children was established in 1739.  It was the ‘darling project’ of Thomas Coram who saw the need to care for infants when their parents were unable to.  The Hospital underwent great changes between 1739 when its opening was a watershed event in British child welfare and 1954 when it ended its practice of institutional care.  This conference aims to bring together the global community of Foundling Hospital researchers for the first time to discuss all aspects of the charity’s history, and stimulate new avenues of investigation in the institution’s archives.

We invite submissions to a special journal issue that we would like to propose to Medical Humanities on the topic “Making Modern Maternity.” Our aim for the special issue will be to explore the ways in which pregnancy, childbirth, and maternal experiences have been constructed as “modern” (or not) at multiple sites and through various forms of media including popular magazines, newspapers, television and film, fiction, “expert” advice, advertisements, and medical records. In terms of temporal and geographic scope, we are soliciting contributions that focus on the late-nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries, with no geographical restrictions.

PAMLA 2023 Los Angeles: “Shifting Perspectives”

Panel: "Emersonian Perspectives"

Sponsored by the Ralph Waldo Emerson Society

 

The Ralph Waldo Emerson Society invites papers that explore the conference theme “Shifting Perspectives” in the context of Emerson’s work and reception. Contributions may address how perspective informs Emerson’s philosophy, aesthetics, poetics and politics. They may also explore in what ways Emerson’s work teaches us to shift our approaches to reading, thinking, feeling, writing and teaching. Finally, they may also show how other philosophers, poets and artists shift our perspective on Emerson.

The COVID-19 pandemic revealed the urgent need for efficient and effective communication and collaboration processes between the five systems science/ education, politics, economy, the media-based and culture-based public as well as the natural environment of societies. The SARS-CoV-2 virus assaulted the world suddenly, and the COVID-19 disease became a pandemic within three months after the discovery of the first case in China. As a consequence, the high infection rate had an impact on communication processes between all systems. Especially during the first wave of the pandemic, the information needed in society was extraordinarily high because many people were afraid and scared.

Special Issue "Storytelling, Body, and Disability in Fiction and Popular Culture"

Humanities
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2023

Dear Colleagues,

The individual body performatively constitutes its gender, experiences desire for other (individual) bodies, undergoes significant changes, and functions as the battlefield for a range of social and political struggles. However, the collective body in groups provides an equally productive basis for the analysis and interpretation of gendered and sexual processes. The human body is never neutral, and many works of fiction give meaning to a disintegrated, disable, diseased, wounded, damaged, mutilated body through the power of language.

Must We? The Discourse of Student Need

Writing studies, in its aims to meet “student need,” has always been teleological in its orientation. But should we continue to assume that we know what future we are preparing our students for and maintain confidence in what best serves them? This special issue asks for a critical reappraisal of our reliance on those discourses of goals, needs, and assessments and how they have shaped and continue to shape our fields, especially given emerging transnationalism and globalism in teaching and scholarship.

Papers analyzing any short story from Borges' many collections (e.g., Ficciones, The Book of Sand, Shakespeare's Memory etc.) along with any affect-focused reading are welcome. With analyses of the often enigmatic, and occasionally cryptic, atmospheres of Borges’ fiction, the aim of this panel is to add to (perhaps even shift!) discourses on the conceptualization of affect.

How did St. Sebastian become a gay icon? Who were the Twin Saints, the Three Pure Ones, the Four Friends and the Five Major Prophets? What goes into a Dumb Cake for St. Agnes’ Eve? Does a wet St. Swithun’s day really foretell forty days of rain? Do girls still appeal to St. Andrew of the fishermen for a good catch in marriage? Can we still hear Old Clem at the hammer and the thunders of St. Barbara? Whether you weave a cross of reeds for Lá Féile Bríde, wear a daff for Dewi Sant, or bear a rose for St. George, come and join our day or we may have to call on St.

Public understandings of the liberal arts tend to amount to an introductory curriculum of texts in the humanist tradition. This project seeks funding to host a special session at Modern Language Association’s annual convention in Jan 2024, inviting new research intended to broaden, deepen and restore the origins of liberal arts beyond modern European conceptions to include classical, pre-classical, non- European and global findings on the subject. Beyond introductory curricula, the session attempts to revisit the notion of the liberal arts as training for political, legal and professional leadership, in the words of Isocrates’ Antidosis, the “καλῶν ἐπιτηδευμάτων”/good achievements that would in turn be a cause for celebration.
