Women and the Rituals of Death in the Early Modern World

This panel will explore women’s involvement in the death and memorial practices of the early modern world. While early modern women were actively involved in the processes that surround death and dying, they are curiously absent from prescriptive advice in ars moriendi treatises of the late sixteenth and seventeenth century, which typically feature a dying man surrounded by a retinue of male advisors and friends. This exclusion creates a disjunction between the representation and the reality of women’s involvement in the rituals of death. This panel will begin to piece apart this disjunction by examining the following questions: What roles did women perform in the rituals of dying, and how were their actions represented in literature or art?

Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 26, 2017

The PAMLA (Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association) 2017 Conference will be held at the lovely Chaminade University of Honolulu (with the official conference hotel being the Ala Moana) from Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12.

This session focuses on the epistemic, philosophical, and political implications of seeing and speaking. It starts from the image of a face that speaks—an image that solicits further thoughts about the relation between visual arts and literary texts, between representation and dialogue imagination, between being seen as the other and speaking as the other.

When Objects 'Write Back': Rethinking Material Culture in the Tricontinent

Material culture assumes significance of massive proportions in cultures across the globe by virtue of its ability to trace everyday life and its nuances through the signifying metaphor of objects. The historical trajectories of nations, cultures and communities function in tandem with that of the prevailing material culture(s) in as much as transformations in the latter sphere inevitably represent ruptures or shifts in the former. The stories that objects recount surpass the boundaries of time and space as they transcend both. They function as signifying metaphors, carrying multiple significations of lives lived through and with them.

CFP: Interstitial Journal (Politics in the Age of Trump and Brexit)

In the modern era and accelerating in the age of Trump and Brexit, interstitiality, or the space between one boundary and the next, has become an urgent area of investigation. Existing within and between entities, interstices challenge conventional understandings of boundedness, inviting us to rethink the space between objects and ideas as an erupting site of transformation. From this view, rigid divisions can no longer be taken for granted, whether political (as in the case of national borders) or scholarly (such as the emphasis on discrete academic disciplines).
