René Pintard in his fundamental study Le libertinage érudit dans la première moitié
du XVIIe siècle already highlighted the difficulty in distinguishing between the
illustration of a sincere fideism and that of a strategic fideism, expressed in order to
disguise otherwise risky affirmations. The authors that Pintard defines as “erudite
libertines” of the seventeenth century, a period when, like everyone else, even
atheists and sceptics died “well confessed and having received Holy Communion”,
were masters of hypocrisy by necessity. The same also went for the thought of the
following century, the century of Reason and the Enlightenment, in which freedom of

The heterogenous character of protean form of travel writing—letters, journals, logbooks, diaries, memoir, journalistic pieces, guidebooks, confessional narratives, accounts of seafaring voyages, literary picaresque narratives, scientific explorations, artists’ escapades, ventures of urban flâneurs, self-exiled wanderers, and fiction—resists easy demarcation. Its heterogeneity lies in the revisionary stance brought about in each narrative through the distinguishing figure of the traveller, mode of narration, means of mapping, or redefining of the landscape.

As the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Sixth Assessment Report concludes, our planet’s landscapes are rapidly undergoing drastic short-term transformative changes due to anthropogenic factors. The wholesale thawing of Arctic permafrost stands to exacerbate planetary warming to runaway levels (p. 1270); droughts in arid areas are massively exacerbated by agricultural activity (p. 1984); greenhouse gas emissions disrupt natural weather systems so greatly that new microclimates emerge (p. 3514); ocean acidification threatens the viability of aquatic ecosystems (p. 1200); biodiversity is in rapid decline around the globe (p. 211); sea level rise will reclaim vast areas of low-lying land (p.

Hotels & Crisis: Historical and Cultural Perspectives

25-26 June 2022

London, UK

Scholars exploring histories and stories of hotels have identified many ways in which they have been actively embroiled within civil conflicts. They are sites of violence and of refuge. They are communication and command centres. They are also sites for diplomacy which aims to bring conflict to an end. Hotels have often been ‘soft’ targets in conflicts, because of their high level of openness compared to other institutions. Potent symbolisms and distinctive affordances have made hotels significant shapers of conflict.

Cinema at International Film Festivals : A virtual conference 7-11 December 2021

Wednesday, October 13, 2021 - 9:49am

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 20, 2021

The virtual conference explores  how contemporary cinema negotiates the spaces at international film festivals. Our scope includes contemporary cinema from different parts of the world, including India and non-English speaking countries. The growing presence and proliferation of film festivals in their varied manifestations leads us to posit: What is the nature of contemporary transnational cinema that is attracting international attention? How does  this intersection play out in global reception, marketing, exhibition and  distribution? What kinds of academic and theoretical interventions can emerge from this development?

In recent decades, the practice of collaborative intellectual labor has had an unexpected resurgence, both among writers and artists, and within scholarly and academic spaces. Drawing on a rich history of intellectual, activist, and artistic practices of collaboration, new collectives and research groups have embraced collaborative forms of knowledge production to challenge the individualization of intellectual labor and the demands of the neoliberal episteme.
