Extended Deadline: Shared Futures: The Symbiosis of the Humanities and the Sciences

Monday, February 10, 2020 - 3:50pm
University at Albany English Graduate Student Organization
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 29, 2020

The relationship between the sciences and the humanities is one that is currently marked by tension. Often viewed as distinct in their approaches to collecting and creating data, the two fields rarely come together to combine methodologies and form what could be a powerful symbiosis of qualitative and quantitative research. For our 18th annual conference, the English Graduate Student Organization is especially interested in exploring the past, present, and future relationships between STEM and the humanities.

X Annual LANGSA Conference University of Connecticut at Storrs
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 29, 2020

Recent attention has been dedicated to the study of environmental narratives that relate to current threats to the survival of the planet: global warming, environmental catastrophes, the extinction of species, massive migration crises, etc. A multidisciplinary approach to the discourses that have shaped our understanding of the human sciences is necessary in order to challenge the anthropocentric logic that has framed discussions on the topic. The binaries of nature and culture, human and non-human, subject and object, need to be reexamined not as the polar opposites in which they have been traditionally articulated, but as part of a larger complexity.

The Optics of Excess: How the Body Knows

Scholars across the humanities have embraced affect theory as a productive avenue for examining aesthetic expressions of feeling, especially those that unfold outside of or beyond representation. In doing so, many have worked to distinguish “affect” from “emotion”: Brian Massumi privileges the former as uniquely able to account for that which escapes “performed action and ascribed meaning.” This conference, however, seeks to investigate affect’s alternate and often neglected theoretical counterparts: feeling and emotion.

Endnotes, The University of British Columbia English Graduate Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 15, 2020

Located at the edge of Vancouver’s city limits, the University of British Columbia is perched on the edge of an ocean. Down an interminable set of winding stairs is Wreck Beach, and with a few more steps you are submerged in the saltwater of the sea. As a West Coast school, the possibility of submersion is always waiting at our door. What does this mean in a time of climate catastrophe and imminent sea level rise? How do we navigate relationships to the ocean, to submersion, and drowning in these chaotic times?  Submersion evokes the existence of multiple, nuanced truths and interpretations.

Fourth international conference at The University of Hull Friday 12thJune 2020

This conference aims to rekindle the energy unleashed at the inaugural conference on British Women’s Writing 1930 to 1960: Revision, Revival, Rediscovery in 2016 at Hull University that was taken forward in conferences at Chichester University in 2017 and 2018. The fourth conference seeks to gather more research and discussion from scholars of women’s literature of this period and to continue the re-evaluation of women’s writing occupying a liminal place in ‘the canon’ of British literature as taught by the academy.
