CFA: "More Representation=Democracy?" Political Studies Colloquium

This year nepUL is pleased to announce the new CFA for its new International Political Studies Colloquium: More Representation = Democracy?.There has been a growing debate within the media and academic realm in what democracy is concerned. We may often consider the legitimacy of our democracy when hearing an emerging expression of feelings of distrust towards politicians, increasing abstention in many democratic countries and raise of social frustration which leads to the election of so-called extremist parties, non-politicians and populist views. As so, is representation a sufficient condition for the existance of a democratic society or is it only necessary?

Religious Places and Sacred Spaces (Master's Conference)

Duke Graduate School of Religion (Master's Program)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 22, 2019

Conference Date: April 4-6, 2019

 

Why are space and place important categories for the study of religion? What role do these categories have in formulating concepts of religion? Scholars have attempted to not only theorize space but also to employ it in their work to better understand how humans interact with the spaces around them. These spaces are not confined to physical spaces. We invite papers that address, ask, and employ any discussion regarding space or place concering religion. Scholarly work is not restricted to one single field, and neither is this conference! We welcome proposals from all fields of interest and relevant disciples.

 

Living and travel expenses are covered by the department. 

 

New Deadline: Bridging the Gap? Digital Media in the Humanities Classroom (special issue of Interdisciplinary Humanities)

Recent critical focus on media and technology maps efforts to create a dynamic classroom that at its best enriches the teaching and learning at the university. But the long-standing interest in media as a means to reach students and enhance delivery also points to an absence in current scholarship, which has not been attentive to that same media as content in the humanities classroom.

Friday, January 25, 2019

In celebration of the life and works of the eminent scholar Pierre Coustillas (1930-2018), we invite contributions for proposed panel(s) on Coustillas, George Gissing, and their writing to the Annual Literary London Society Conference. This meeting will be held on 11-12 July 2019 at the Institute of English Studies in the University of London. Coustillas has had a profound influence on Gissing and nineteenth-century studies. From 1969 to April 2013, he edited The Gissing Newsletter and subsequently The Gissing Journal, the organ for Gissing studies. In 1997, Paul F. Mattheisen, Arthur C. Young, and Coustillas completed their landmark project: The Collected Letters of George Gissing.

Postmodern and postcolonial intersections

University of Gafsa, Tunisia
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 28, 2018

This study day aims to bring researchers together to debate the postmodern and postcolonial intersections in literary and cultural studies. Grounded in contemporary postmodern and postcolonial thematic and aesthetic concerns, the study day will attempt to explore the confluences of the two theoretical trends, the discursive spaces offered by the first to the second. In this regard, relations between the East and the West and how such relations are presented and re-represented in multifarious ways in the writing and re-writing of literary and cultural texts are investigated.
