CFP: Chiasma, Issue 6 – Disenchantment

updated: 
Monday, December 3, 2018 - 9:41am
Chiasma: A Site for Thought
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 1, 2019

Chiasma: A Site for Thought is pleased to invite submissions for its sixth issue, on the theory and philosophy of “disenchantment”. While the contemporary world roils from accelerated inequality across diverse sectors of the global population; technological advancement and complexification; proliferating ‘connectedness’; network, information, and media sinkholes within which the distinction between fact and value is increasingly void—and all this in the midst of great political absurdity—disenchantment, in all its Janus-faced nuance, is again critical to be thought today.

Text & Image in the Long Eighteenth Century: An Everyday Spectacle

Thursday, November 29, 2018 - 2:40pm
The Enlightenment Group Symposium Series (6), Mount Royal University, Calgary, Canada
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 25, 2019

 

The long Eighteenth Century is the time when ocular-centric thought established itself in Western society. Images and illustrations permeated textual spaces to the point that few books were printed without illustrations. From arts to sciences via fiction and geographic literature, the eighteenth-century citizen was therefore exposed to wide array of visual and textual combinations as part of his/her everyday life.

This one-day symposium will be held at Mount Royal University, Calgary, Canada on March 8, 2019.

 For its 6th symposium, the Enlightenment Group welcomes 20-minute paper proposals engaging with:

-          Visual culture

-          Iconography
