Evolving Stories

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 10, 2017

Stories are fluid and mutable, forever in a state of flux, and gradually developing according to their shifting surroundings. While certain features of a story endure, other elements undergo changes. Indeed, in their homology between biological and cultural adaptation, Gary Bortolotti and Linda Hutcheon (2007) highlight the importance of persistence and diversity, as persistent and diverse replicators and narratives thrive in biology and culture respectively. Through exploring the persistent elements of a story, we can examine universal themes, timeless symbols and archetypal characters. Meanwhile, the areas of diversity offer insight into the plethora of contextual components framing a story.

Doing Sex: Men, Masculinity and Sexual Practices

updated: 
Tuesday, February 7, 2017 - 1:55pm
Chris Haywood, Newcastle University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 19, 2017

This colloquium aims to bring together the study of sexual practices and desires and critical studies of men and masculinities. We are explicitly interested in returning to some of the provocations of sexology in the twentieth century to think through men’s sexuality today. For Kinsey there is an inherent paradox in “man’s absorbing interest in sex and his astounding ignorance of it; his desire to know and his unwillingness to face the facts.” Whilst we can see some of the failings and problematics in Kinsey, Masters & Johnson, and other Sexologists, it is critical to reflect not simply as criticism of these, but also what they are suggestive and enlightening of.
