26-28 July 2018

 

University of Liverpool, London Campus, 33 Finsbury Square EC2A 1AG

 

How did early modern processes of global exchange influence English identity? How did the movement of peoples, objects, and ideas across the globe shape English concepts of self and belonging, both at home and abroad? Join the ERC-funded ‘Travel, Transculturality, and Identity in England, 1550 – 1700’ (TIDE) project to explore these questions through a three-day interdisciplinary conference in the summer of 2018.

From Center to Periphery and from Periphery to Center: An Inter-Culture exchange

During most of the 20th century, academia knowledge was circulated in the world on a path parallel with Western countries’ political and economic dominance. Western experts were sent out into the world by their native country or by international institutions to share or impose their findings on other countries in the areas of literature, linguistics and the teaching of foreign languages. This is what we might call a diffusion of knowledge from center to periphery. There were some exceptions to this Western dominance but not many.

The Queen of Suspense: A Patricia Highsmith Symposium

University of Chester, Friday 14th September 2018

 

The twentieth-century American author Patricia Highsmith is arguably experiencing a posthumous resurgence of popular interest (and, we would argue, not before time), owing, in part, to the recent success of Todd Haynes’s adaptation of Carol 2014, and Anthony Minghella’s earlier remake of The Talented Mr Ripley 1999. Many titles from her extensive repertoire have, thankfully, recently been republished, with tasteful matching jackets, by Bloomsbury and Sphere in the UK.

Crises and Death in the Hispanic World (article)

We have been enduring a long period of crises that are changing the way individuals see themselves and their relationship to others. For instance, the effects of the 2008 economic crisis in Spain have incentivized a reflection on both the bad direction of the country’s politics and on the faulty transition to democracy after Franco’s death in 1975; climate change is not only posing environmental challenges, but also political ones, as the current Puerto Rican crisis demonstrates. Crises change paradigms, and, like in the recent cases of Spain and Puerto Rico, the outcomes are highly unfavorable, leaving victims to suffer their improper management.
