Renaissance Society of America (RSA) 2019 - Toronto

Panel - Renaissance Vegetarianism

The study of early modern food has blossomed in recent years. As scholars have parsed the politics of changing dining practices, the role of recipes in intellectual history, and the growing perception of food ethics as inextricable from social identity, dietary beliefs and habits have begun to be seen as central to early modern studies. One of the most striking dietary trends that spread across Europe in this period, however, remains underexamined: the rise of vegetarianism.

50th Anniversary Northeast Modern Language Association Convention, to be held in Washington, D.C., from March 21st through the 24th, 2019.
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

The literature produced by the communities of early Northern Europe, where the elements of craft and material culture informed the descriptive matter of both poetry and prose, has left a legacy which demands critical analysis of the ways in which the trappings of the real and the imaginary were represented.  What were the relationships between figurative language, mimetic representation, the production of craft, and perceptions shaped by the visual arts?  Did the allegories, symbols, emblems, fancies, and verisimilitude of literature in Old and Middle English, Old Norse/Icelandic, Early Welsh, or Early Irish provide opportunities to discuss the interface of descriptive writing with other modes of representation?  Potential papers are asked to cons

Apocryphal Technologies (special issue)

updated: 
Monday, July 16, 2018 - 9:40am
continent: journal of media, art, and philosophy
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 1, 2018

The journal continent invites submissions for a special issue on the topic of “Apocryphal Technologies.” While the term “technological imaginary” is often used to describe how technologies are invested with utopian aspirations that prevent users from sensing legitimate disappointments, frustrations, or malfunctions, the term “apocryphal technology” refers to technological imaginaries that are more explicitly dubious, suspicious, or fraudulent. It also refers more specifically to technologies that are actually designed, built, and implemented (as opposed to the purely theoretical) and that are openly endorsed by their designers, promoters, and users (as opposed to the obviously impossible).
