In Episode 9 of James Joyce's Ulysses, “Scylla and Charybdis,” Stephen Dedalus develops a theory about the origins of Shakespeare’s works that is both original and controversial. It is in the National Library of Ireland that Dedalus, in a wild and winding conversation, develops his ‘Hamlet theory’. The episode stages the strong and sometimes comic appeal of a biographical approach to Shakespeare’s works and, at the same time, casts Dedalus – Joyce’s alter ego – variously as Hamlet, Hamlet’s father, Shakespeare, and as a modern-day Ulysses.

Much of the Western world has a rising problem with white nationalists. These white supremacists often co-opt fields like Classics, medievalism, and Norse mythology to support their racist ideologies—twisting these disciplines and repressing or ignoring evidence for the multicultural and multiracial realities of the ancient and medieval world. In terms of Classics, these distortions and appropriations have been documented by an emerging generation of scholars like Donna Zuckerberg, Dan-el Padilla Peralta, Curtis Dozier, Sarah Bond, and others. Ancient myth, literature, and symbols continue to pervade modern culture.

Guidelines for Authors:
War has been a constant aspect of human eras since ancient times. In fact, the idea of conflict as a means of achieving useful results has always been present in the history of evolution. Even if after the end of the Second World War, when a new peaceful approach towards dispute resolution has been promoted by the most powerful nations in the world, tensions have risen again in the last few decades, particularly in some territories of the world.
Poetry is a constant, being produced by all known civilisations from ancient to modern times. Throughout its extensive history, the individual art of high emotions sublimated into perfect language has approached a vast array of subject matters, including love, war, social issues, the beauty of nature, etc. A particular exercise of the mind and soul, and a unique way of apprehending reality, poetry is a self-sufficient universe that intensifies and enlarges life experience. Pointing to inner knowledge rather than real circumstance, it activates different layers of perception, sweeps away human thoughts, feeds emotions and soothes suffering.

Desire and the Erotics of Introspection

Desire and the Erotics of Introspection
In this seminar, we wish to examine how people of different positionalities vis a vis the ‘center’ and ‘peripheries’ of modern research universities, practice comparative literary studies within institutions which, from the start, were built upon the logic of exclusion and exclusionary tactics. The “modern university” stands in a long tradition of colonial and racialized traditions of knowledge-making which purported to be secular and universalizable.
Sapphic Echoes: Representations of Female Love and Desire in Global Literatures #19149
This seminar asks questions and invites responses that explore representations of female love and desire in global literatures. How have the complex poetics of female love and desire—the desire to have something, or escape something, or punish, or know—been represented over time? What strategies have been employed to subvert literary conventions defined predominantly by male perspectives on home, love, war, victory and loss? How have female characters navigated the interplay between things done (overtly) and thought (covertly) to reveal the inner web of desires, fears and conflicts that constitute a female poetics of love and longing?

Humanities Open Acess
Volume 10, Issue 3 (September 2021)
Humanities is an international, scholarly, peer-reviewed, open access journal for scholarly papers published quarterly online.
Ever since the publication of Foucault’s multi-volume work The History of Sexuality, scholarship, whether theoretically, historically, or literarily minded, has reckoned with the call to develop less anachronistic methodologies to analyze premodern expressions of desire. While scholars such as David Halperin and Susan Lanser have risen to the challenge of Foucault’s text and expanded his analysis to address feminine and queer desires, both generally and within their specific periods of study, these theoretical and methodological strides in the history of sexuality have penetrated fields at various rates. This seminar seeks to help remedy this disciplinary issue, particularly within the literature of medieval studies and classics.

Engaging the Audience: From Antiquity to the Renaissance
In The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life (1959), Erving Goffman likens social interaction to theatre, describing “performance” as “all the activity of an individual which occurs during a period marked by his continuous presence before a particular set of observers and which has some influence on the observers.” The individual coming into contact with other people is like an actor on stage, who will employ available theatrical devices in order to manage the impression made on the audience.
