ENVIRONMENTS AND SPACES

March 12 & 13, 2021

 

LOCATION: Online

 

TIMES: TBA

 

Sponsored by the English Graduate Student Association at Idaho State University

 

We are pleased to announce the 2021 Intermountain Graduate Conference. This year we are seeking a variety of papers around the theme “Environments and Spaces,” interpreted and explored broadly across topics and perspectives. The concept of human interactions with our environment(s) appears throughout human history, from the beginning of recorded history to the exploration of outer space and beyond.

Various approaches to our theme mightinclude:

Music and Theatre

Interpretations, Appropriations, and Rewritings of Giovanni Boccaccio

11th International Montevideana Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 1, 2021

The Department of European Literature at the University of the Republic (Uruguay) announces its 11th International Montevideana Conference, to be held virtually.

 

It is tempting to think of Boccaccio's most important work in relation to our current times, given that in recent months the Decameron has become a virtual meeting place through rewrites, seminars, and group readings dedicated to the text. The superposition of his pandemic with ours has become, in more than one sense, a paradoxical kind of locus amoenus, adding a new layer to the varied investigations and artistic appropriations that this Italian text has motivated in its 700 years of existence.

Narrative and Music

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 14, 2021

The cognitivist turn sparked a renewed interest in narrative analysis that extends beyond the study of literature. It has expanded across media such as film, graphic novels, video games, and music. This conference focuses on the study of narrative and narrativity in music. While some critics are convinced of music’s capacity for story-building, others consider the use of narrative theory derived from literary studies for the analysis of music unsuitable. This conference takes music’s narrative potential as its point of departure but recognizes that musical narrativity is scalar.

Community engagement and service learning are long-standing high-impact educational practices that have demonstrated value for students, faculty, higher education institutions, community organizations, states, regions, and nations. The societal focus on social justice movements, public health and the pandemic, and environmental issues has created unprecedented opportunities for engaging undergraduates in community-based research. These developments have highlighted community needs for certain types of data and projects as well as nurtured new forms of community engagement such as social entrepreneurship.

“Rhetorical Theory”
Las Vegas, 11/11-14, 2021

Chair: Dr. Ryan Leack, USC

“Rhetoric is a coproductive function of circulation in excess of human intention, which collapses rhetoric and persuasion into the rhetorical, a process of world making that extends relationality into future publics.” 

—Byron Hawk, Resounding the Rhetorical (2018)

This panel will explore recent movements in rhetorical theory writ large, either in connection with or apart from composition theory and practice. Special attention will be given to proposals that engage with the conference's theme.

Out of Bounds: An Exploration of Boundaries in Crisis Online Conference: 14 & 15 July 2021 Trinity Centre for Literary & Cultural Translation 


From the exact lines on an architect’s blueprints to the demarcations on maps that shape the world today, boundaries have consequences. In concrete form they have separated societies, but they need not be material in order to exert power. The onset of crisis often sees the imposition of boundaries that are nebulous and ill-defined but surely no less potent than the menacing walls of segregation.

Reaching the Summit: Reimagining the Summit Series in the Canadian Cultural Memory

The year 2022 marks the upcoming fiftieth anniversary of the 1972 Summit Series. This hockey series, played between Canada and the former Soviet Union, has become the subject of Canadian cultural mythmaking since Paul Henderson’s winning goal for Canada during game eight. In Home Game: Hockey and Life in Canada (1989), Ken Dryden and Roy MacGregor identified the Summit Series as a uniquely “Canadian memory” and marked 1972 as a “coming of age” for Canada as a nation (195).

The Marxist Literary Group invites you to join us for the 2021 Institute on Culture and Society, which will take place entirely online. In an effort to make the most of our virtual environment, we aim to foreground MLG’s longstanding commitment to provide intellectual and professional mentoring and support for graduate students, pre-tenure faculty, and contingent or precariously employed faculty. To that end, this year’s ICS will primarily comprise seminar-style sessions featuring works in progress from early-career scholars. There will also be two plenary events, to provide venues in which MLG members can meet collectively, see comrades, and engage intellectually in matters relevant to our organization.
