The general conference theme “cultures of collectivity” presents some very current and relevant possibilities for the study of late antique and medieval English languages and literatures.  Any proposal that considers this theme in general will be welcome, but two foci will be of particular interest.

First, the study of book culture and literacy has been a growing field in recent years both in terms of groups of readers and groups of texts. This approach might address ideas concerning reading communities, literacy and education, book sharing, book production and combining of texts as complete or excerpted works, and use and re-use of books or texts over time.

Update on the 41st APEAA Conference at the University of Aveiro - 21-22 May 2021 

First of all we would like to thank everybody for their patience and understanding when the 41st APEAA Conference at the University of Aveiro had to be cancelled due to the pandemic!  

Given the ongoing uncertainty around the Covid pandemic, we have decided the best course of action is to hold the APEAA Conference entirely online, using Zoom. The new date is 21-22 May 2021, during Portuguese working hours. 

This is of course disappointing, since we will be unable to see our colleagues face to face to exchange views at greater length, but circumstances dictate this format.

Representation of queer identities in twenty-first century popular television has undergone massive shifts in the last decade. Whilst queer representation has formed part of the bedrock of reality television, queer representation in scripted television has received less scholarly attention. Thus, scripted television will be the focus of this special issue of Queer Studies in Media & Popular Culture (Intellect).

European Judaismis pleased to announce a call for papers for a special issue devoted to the Man Booker-Prize-winning novelist, Howard Jacobson.

As David Brauner writes in his recently published monograph, Howard Jacobson is a protean figure:

            A Leavisite moralist with a puritanical streak, and a chronicler of dark sexual obsessions and perversions; a highly serious humanist intellectual and a hilariously comic provocateur; a passionate polemicist and an ardent advocate of ‘ambiguity and contradiction’; the author of (in his own words) ‘the most Jewish novel that has ever been written by anybody, anywhere’, whose literary heroes are Jane Austen and D.H. Lawrence, Jacobson revels in ambivalence.

The Language of the Narratives: Myth, Ithihāsa and Purāṇa

“The notion that name and essence bear a necessary and internal relation to each other, that the name does not merely denote but actually is the essence of its object, that the potency of the real thing is contained in the name—that is one of the fundamental assumptions of the mythmaking consciousness itself’’ (Cassirer, 2012: 04).

PAMLA 2021: The City in Afrofuturism

updated: 
Wednesday, February 3, 2021 - 11:51am
PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 15, 2021

“Cities controlled by big companies are old hat in science fiction,” writes diarist Lauren Olamina in Parable of the Sower. Be it site of dystopian horror or utopian haven, The City in all its iterations serves speculative and science fiction in a variety of ways: as setting, plot device, character-in-itself, metanarrative reference point, all-purpose trope. Yet as metaphorical stand-in for ‘civilization’—and all that loaded signifier may entail—the city as trope may be all the more richly complicated within afrofuturism, allowing authors to ground their narratives in explorations of race, gender, class, and an entire array of intersectional complexities of human identity, community and social marginalization.
