Independent Libraries as the 'Great Good Place'

Independent Libraries Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 22, 2020

In the heart of their communities and repositories of some of the most independent cultural collections in the UK, independent libraries are social, educational, working spaces which deliver numerous personal benefits to those who use them. This year’s theme is inspired by Ray Oldenburg’s The Great Good Place (1989), in which Oldenberg discusses the desirable ‘third place’: public places where anyone can gather and interact. Unlike the first place (home) and the second place (work), third spaces offer inexpensive access to discussion, pleasure, and community, leading to social cohesion, civic engagement, and the wellbeing that comes from a sense of place. Third spaces can be cafes, main streets, coffeehouses, beer gardens…

«Dall’ombre al chiaro lume» - The Enigma and its declensions in Literature

Doctoral Conference - University of Padua
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 30, 2020

The International Doctoral Conference at the University of Padua is an interdisciplinary and bilingual forum which takes place every year. This year the conference is open to PhD students, researchers and scholars interested in the topic of literary and linguistic enigmas from a broader historical and socio-cultural perspective.

Agreeing with Fortini (1991), the difference between obscurity and complexity lies on the nature of “darkness”, which «cannot and must ever not be […] ‘won’ or ‘overcome’ since its raison d’être lies in being […] a particular kind of ‘figure of speech’». In fact, complexity implies at least one chance of effectively decoding the hidden meaning.

GCfE 14th Annual ConferenceVoices of Change: Presents, Pasts and Futures of Activism and Protest in Europe21-22 May 2020, University of BirminghamCall for papers

In recent years, Europe has witnessed the rise of various protest movements: Extinction Rebellion, the Yellow Vests in France, “Stop the Coup” protest in the UK, to name but a few. These protests were fuelled by the deterioration of the social, political and environmental situation in Europe and the rest of the world, as well as by citizens’ increasing demands for social, political and environmental justice.
