What is left of myths in contemporary arts and literature?

International Conference in Toulouse (France) - December 6-7, 2024

As founding narratives or idealized representations of historical figures, myths have, from time immemorial, tied humans together, creating communities that grow into organized societies. They have therefore become the safeguards of a vision of History that the arts and literature have ceaselessly spun into stories, in order to better transgress, deconstruct or simply revisit an ever-changing mythos. Contemporary stories reshape the contours of an all-too-often glorified past and they question our cultural heritage at the same time as rekindling it.

                                         ECOLOGY AND INTEGRATIVE DISCOURSE: A REFLECTIVE ANALYSIS

CONCEPT NOTE

 

The word eco comes from the Greek word oikos, which etymologically implies household or earth and logy from logos implies rational discourse. Together they mean criticism of the house- the earth as represented in writing.  It is therefore defined in general, as the study of literature and the physical environment put together. However, in larger context, it incorporates numerous variants of human life.

Diffractions (Universidade Católica Portuguesa)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 15, 2023

The next issue of Diffractions explores immateriality in artistic and cultural practices as a form of both expression and resistance. For centuries, the histories of artistic practices (as well as historiographies and historicities) have been anchored to materiality and the production of objects. As Michel Claura argues, “[t]he history of art is the history of the technique of art” (1969, 83). Indeed, curatorship as we know it today initially developed around objects and their need of care.

The way violence is represented always influences its reception and integration within the cultural imaginary. The narration of violence is ingrained in our perception of ourselves and our communities, and those who report traumatic events then carry the responsibility of how they are received and memorialised.

Submissions Due: February 1, 2024

Symposium Date: April 12, 2024

Reminiscence and Creation: Art as Memory Work

What does it mean to make and break memories? Who do memories belong to? How do memories shape us and the field of art history more broadly? Because each of us has a unique relationship with memories, the way they materialize is bound to differ as well. Whereas some memories are collective, shaped by a shared narrative that manifests in numerous ways, others are more intimate, individual.
