"Cosmopolitanism and World Citizenship" International Conference

Saturday, November 30, 2019

“I am a citizen of the cosmos” Cynic Diogenes replied in the fourth century BCE when he was asked about his origins. What does it mean to be a global citizen today? Highly complex, multilayered and always contemporary, the concept of cosmopolitanism offers fertile ground and uncharted waters for scholarly interpretations. For millennia, philosophers have theorized on the meaning of global citizenship in an effort to identify who are the “kosmopolites”, the real citizens of “the Small World, the Great” in the words of Nobel laureate Odysseus Elytis.

“Somewhere in Between: Borders and Borderlands” International Conference Oxford

Sunday, November 10, 2019

In an ever changing world the problems of setting boundaries as well as the need to create meanings and establish understanding of diverse phenomena have always been of the utmost importance for humanity. Borders, boundaries, frontiers, and borderlands, naturally formed or man made, are grounded in various ethical traditions, and have always been associated with limits and restrictions. The ongoing process of globalisation is changing the role and stereotypes of borders, so that they are often seen as opportunities rather than constraints. However, in some cases they are still being militarized and conflicted.

"Faces of War" International Conference

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 1, 2019

The twentieth century, violent and brutal, offers a wide spectrum of material that deserves further analysis. The Great War introduced the first aspects of modern warfare; the Second World War, even more devastating in its atrocities, advanced war further. The Cold War introduced modern society to new methods and technological advancements of warfare, beyond anything our species had seen. The thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of Iron Curtain in 1989 altered the balance of global power yet again.

Illumination: Perspectives on the Way of Light

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

The origin myths of multiple cultures describe a primordial order of life which emerges from the subterranean world into an upper world of light and growth.  In recent eras, light has come to serve as a metaphor for learning and technological advancement.  The term “enlightenment” continues to portray humankind as both the embodiment of spiritual growth and an historic era in which science and the humanities grew intertwined.  Like moths, we are drawn to the light—everything from the sun to gilded manuscripts to the screens of our own computers.  This conference examines the way light has and continues to reveal significant aspects of the human condition.Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:

International Conference on Children's Studies

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 20, 2019

Childhood is a crucial stage in the formation of personality, value orientations, self-image and ideas about the world. However, the subject of childhood has become the target of research relatively recently. A wide range of problems and an interdisciplinary approach to this phenomenon have extended the boundaries of the academic and professional research interests. Nowadays, the study of children and childhood is an integral part of the humanities and social sciences. We invite psychologists, educators, sociologists, anthropologists, cultural and literary scholars, historians, art experts, lawyers, linguists and specialists in other fields to participate in the conference.

International Conference Oxford "Migrating World: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Migration and Integration"

Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:55pm

Tuesday, October 15, 2019

Migration has been a constant feature of human history – “homo migrans” have existed ever since “homo sapiens”. Recently the themes of migration and integration have been especially topical in Europe and in other parts of the world due to massive and ever-growing movement of population. These spreading in-flows of immigrants have a strong impact on the social, economic and political climate of host countries, which are often highly challenged by the growing number of immigrants and, therefore, have to review their immigration and integration policies to adjust to the contemporary processes of globalization.

Many of us structure syllabi according to a familiar read-discuss-write a paper rhythm, a sequence that allows students to further explore ideas independently and in depth. But as natural and inevitable as this process seems, what really comes of the hours we all invest in the writing and grading of literary analysis papers?

The Ludic Outlaw: Medievalism, Games, Sport, and Play (A Roundtable)

Cross-platform video games are now so popular as to constitute a financial threat to Netflix and other digital content services. One feature of many of these games is the ludic outlaw figure—found, for example, in the 2016 multiplayer Overwatch—that works to resist oppression within the game world. Because they signify popular definitions of justice and communal welfare, modern digital outlaws frequently evoke medieval outlaw representations, such as Robin Hood. In what specific ways do enduring medieval outlaw tropes function as model responses to oppression in modern games?

NeMLA 2020 Teaching Dickens Now

updated: 
Monday, August 26, 2019 - 9:21am
The Dickens Society
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

How do we teach Dickens now? What do Dickens’s works have to do with the #MeToo movement; with social media; with the Anthropocene, extinction rebellion, and climate change; with racism and living, as Christina Sharpe has put it, “in the wake” of slavery; with technological rupture, the gig economy, and radical job transformation; and with other questions of modern life? What do we do with Dickens’s long prose and today’s allegedly shorter attention spans and alternative narrative forms?

This panel invites scholars to address what Dickens’s fiction offers the present and why Dickens matters now. The Dickens Society requests paper proposals (250-500 words) for the panel “Teaching Dickens Now” (ID 18079).

CFP (SCMS 2020) Screening Ourselves: Mediation, Exemplars of Difference, and Cultural Transformation

Digital media proliferates, in part, because it allows individuals to adopt, inhabit, revise, and project their ways of being. Liking, saving, and sharing digital objects shapes our personal and social lives, and has transformed what it means to see and be seen, to garner and wield cultural influence. By self-reflexively mediating ourselves in cultural artifacts, what political claims are we adopting about how the world is, or should be? Which lives are screenable, or screened?

In his book Twenty-One Lessons for the Twenty-First Century (2018), Yuval Noah Harari argues that in a world where Biotechnology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are merging to redesign human life (physically and socially), educators should focus on teaching the "four C's," which are, "Critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity" (266). As intelligent algorithms increasingly replace human labor, Harari argues that the job market will require workers to "reinvent yourself again and again."

Queer Media and the Digital

Digital technology has altered all aspects of media cultures, including questions of identity that can affect everything from the production of texts, their content, their distribution, their reception, and more. At the same time, popular and academic understandings of queerness have evolved to incorporate expanding ideas of gender, sexuality, race, disability, ethnicity, and other identity categories. Not only has digital technology altered the ways in which queerness can be articulated, but queer media has also shaped the form and reception of digital texts. Understanding queerness in the digital age requires us to account for the changes in both queer studies and digital studies.
