ChLA International Committee Call for Papers, ChLA 2022 Conference
“History in its broadest aspect is a record of man’s migrations from one environment to another.” –
Decay as a state of nature is inevitable, yet it is something that could be at least postponed: decay in art as the main decadent idea has been on the cultural front row long enough to make certain conclusions about its essential characteristics. Decay as a philosophical issue is much more complex than its natural incarnation: French Symbolists and, later, fin de siecle authors regarded decay as an inseparable part of any type of cultural cognition. Its original interpretations can be found in the ideas of Schopenhauer, Hartmann, Nietzsche, Wagner, Bergson's intuitivism, modern scientific discoveries and folklore. The art of decay feels the need to justify its aesthetic principles, to explain to the public audience its goals and tasks.
We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the upcoming "Spatiality and Temporality" International Conference. The conference is addressed to academics, researchers and professionals with a particular interest related to the conference topic. We invite proposals from various disciplines including philosophy, history, sociology, anthropology, culture studies, literature and architecture.
Over the course of the 20th century and into the 21st, cinema, television, and related media have become increasingly central both to individual lives and to the lives of peoples, groups, and nations. Cinema has become a major form of cultural expression and films both reflect and influence the attitudes and behaviour of people, representing their tensions and anxieties, hopes and desires and incarnating social and cultural determinants of the era in which they were made.
Eliza Haywood represents The Female Spectator as part of a coterie that acts as “several Members of one Body, of which [she is] the mouth.” Through this writing club, Haywood encapsulates the important role that such coteries played in circulating women’s writing in the long eighteenth century. Lady Mary Wortley Montagu circulated her travel writing for feedback in a letter-book within a close circle of friends and family members. This correspondence between women represented an opportunity to share work in a safe space. Co-writing groups remain a safe space and an essential resource for women to share work today.
Abstracts for 15-17 min. papers sought for NeMLA 2022 on the topic of "Dirty London." Even before industrialization, London was a dirty city. The Victorians brought the Sanitary Acts, which improved health conditions, but my use of the word "dirty" applies to not just those aspects of sanitation, but also treatment of sexuality in, for instance, My Secret Life, and other publications explored so well by Steven Marcus in The Other Victorians. The "Sanitary Aesthetic" is obvious in works by such authors as Wilkie Collins, George Gissing, Charles Dickens, and Elizabeth Gaskell.
VI. The International Holistence Academy Congress (IHAC VI) themed SOCIETY 5.0 will be held on 19-20 October 2021. The theme of the conference this year is Society 5.0. The concept of Society 5.0, which is also expressed as a "human-oriented super-smart society", expresses the society of the future. The opportunities offered by digital transformation and the conditions created by globalization and pandemic make the concept of Society 5.0 meaningful. The Congress will provide an environment to evaluate the society of the future in today's conditions.

Panel Description: While the foundations of positive psychology can be traced back deeply into the twentieth century (Maslow; Fromm; Ryff; Diener), the trend really took off in 1998 with Martin Seligman’s presidential address to the APA. Since then, a wealth of research has explored the salutary effects of positivity, with emphasis on the independent skills one can cultivate to flourish (Duckworth; Seligman; Compton & Hoffman). Over decades of use, this thinking has seeped into our daily lives, with common phrases telling us to “look on the bright side,” “put a smile on,” and “live, laugh, love.”

The University of East Anglia, UK, is proud to announce an international symposium dedicated to the writing of Lee Child, a key figure in contemporary crime fiction, and creator of the world-renowned Jack Reacher series.

This interdisciplinary panel examines the rich relationship of music and literary texts in various world literatures focusing primarily on the 20th century, but presentations within a broader time frame will also be considered. We invite a wide range of papers investigating the author’s technique of representing music in literature, examining aesthetic, historical, and cultural interactions between music and literature, audience and performers, literary text and composer.
This panel examines Dostoevsky’s influence on 19th-century to contemporary authors and studies possible connections and textual echoes between Dostoevsky’s writings and other texts potentially related to his literary legacy. We invite abstracts devoted to the contemporary literary analysis of the chosen texts, as well as broader research on philosophical or theological issues central to Dostoevsky’s worldview and that continue to be discussed and re-examined today.
In 1818, the Shelleys exchanged their settled life at Albion House in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, for an Italian exile—a period distinguished by remarkable productivity and artistic achievement. To commemorate the bicentenary of Percy Bysshe Shelley’s death on 8th July 1822, the Shelley Conference 2022 will centre on the final two years of the poet’s sojourn in Italy. Beginning with the summer of 1820, the last twenty-four months of Shelley’s life were populated by brilliance. Within that short lease fall such works as Prometheus Unbound, Swellfoot the Tyrant, ‘Letter to Maria Gisborne’, ‘Witch of Atlas’, Epipsychidion, Adonais, the late lyrics, ‘A Defence of Poetry’, accomplished translations, and The Triumph of Life.

"It may be that writers in my position, exiles, or emigrants or expatriates, are haunted by some sense of loss, some urge to reclaim, to look back, even at the risk of being mutilated into pillars of salt. But if we do look back, we must do in the knowledge - which gives rise to profound uncertainties- that our physical alienation from India almost inevitably means that we will not be capable of reclaiming precisely the thing that was lost, that we will, in short, create fictions, not actual cities or villages, but invisible ones, imaginary homelands, Indias of the mind."
― Salman Rushdie
Irish identity has long been approached as anomalous. Ireland itself has been viewed as an anomalous state (Lloyd, Anomalous States). It was England’s first colony, a laboratory for empire, but at the same time contributed to the imperial project elsewhere, making it arguably semicolonial (Attridge and Howe, Semicolonial Joyce). It has been described as a first-world country with a third-world memory (Gibbons, Transformations in Irish Culture). But what defines Irishness now? After the Celtic Tiger, the 2008 banking crisis, and Brexit, how has Irish identity changed? As a result of increasing refugee crises around the world, Ireland is as much marked by immigration as emigration.

The mind and body binarism and its correlation with the male and female as opposites has been a subject of debate among academic scholars for some time now. Feminists have challenged such dualism and the related assumptions by offering accounts of the relationship between subjectivity, corporeality and identity. These changes in attitudes towards corporeality have also led to a change in treatments of the female characters in literature who once represented as passive and vulnerable seem to have achieved autonomy and control of their bodies and thus their subjectivity.
