The Idea
GIRES, the Global Institute for Research, Education & Scholarship is proud to introduce a series of short seminars dedicated to literature. We embrace Scott Fitzgerald’s opinion about the beauty of this fine craft: “You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.” We do belong to this world and we hope that we will travel you through the great works that altered our mentality, matured  feelings and made us dreamers. Our very own, Dr. Olga Akroyd will be the guide in this wonderful literary journey.

International Conference 

Thematic Approach

The international conference organized by GIRES focuses on the exploration of Sports as a global phenomenon and its impact on economy, society, culture and politics.

Sport activities have long been part of our civilization. Ancients Greeks used to say that a healthy mind resided in a healthy body, and throughout history, nations have praised athletes for their achievements because they embodied physical perfection and glory.

Lawrence Buell’s essay “The Ecocritical Insurgency” (1999) claims that “human beings are inescapably biohistorical creatures who construct themselves, at least partially, through encounters with physical environments that they cannot not inhabit.” Precisely two centuries earlier, American writer Charles Brockden Brown advocates for a specifically American gothic tradition; Brown adapts the European gothic to American soil.

Literary Diagnosis and the Anti-Medical Humanities

Friday, September 4, 2020 - 1:09pm
ACLA 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 30, 2020

With Health Humanities on the rise and medical memoirs flooding bookshelves, it's easy to forget that the alliances forged between literary representation and medical discourse are new and fragile. Writers from a multitude of traditions have long squared off against doctors for the right to understand illness and capture the essence of the diseased subject. Their motivations have spanned from the starkly political to the intensely personal.

This panel seeks to explore the formal approaches and theoretical implications of these Anti-Medical Humanities. What drives these writers to resist the assimilation of the literary into the medical, and vice versa?

Potential topics could include, but are not limited to:

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 25, 2020

Over the past few decades, the vast early American field has recognized the significance of women’s writing in the formation of an early American history and culture. Through their letters, diary entries, and commonplace books, just to name a few, early American women have demonstrated their participation in the political and social movements that were essential to the country’s founding. Therefore, this panel seeks submissions that considers how eighteenth, and nineteenth American women’s writing contributed to the history and mythology of the founding moment in Philadelphia. Literature will be broadly interpreted and include poetry, fiction, essays, diaries, and letters.

African and Asian Women’s Voices in Spanish. Borders within the Global HispanophoneUnder the rubric of the “Global Hispanophone,” scholars have recently turned to a transnational and decolonial approach to the cultural production in Spanish that includes former African and Asian possessions of Spain such as Equatorial Guinea, Morocco, Western Sahara and The Philippines. Within these long-neglected cultural productions there is a heterogeneous literary corpus produced by women who subvert oppressive patriarchal traditions, repression and multiple forms of violence.
