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

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.

‘Feminism’ , according to the Oxford Dictionary , is defined as a “belief in and advocacy of
the political , economic and social equality of the sexes expressed especially through
organized activity on behalf of women’s rights and interests”. From the various
spheres of feminism , ‘feminine feminism’ has become a quite attractive topic ,
especially among women . It suggests women not to sacrifice her identity for the
patriarchal society , both physically and mentally , be powerful and strong . Though ,
