BITCH, WITCH, WHORE: REPRESENTATIONS OF WOMEN IN WORD AND IMAGE
KEYNOTE SPEAKER: JOANNE HOLLOWS (NOTTINGHAM TRENT)
An Inter-disciplinary Postgraduate Conference
University of Newcastle, 26 May 2006

Both historic and contemporary representations of women in word and image are understood, all too often, through the madonna/whore dichotomy: from the delicate Victorian waif to the red-lipsticked vamp of fifties film noir; from Molly Bloom to Buffy. This conference will consider iconic representations and enduring archetypes of women, addressing their persistent appeal and exposing their limitations. What makes certain versions of femininity archetypal? Can they be subverted, challenged, and/or reclaimed?

Seeing Perception: Images & Texts (Universität Leipzig, Germany, 24-26
November 2006)

Over the past two decades, matters of seeing and visual perception have
garnered increasing critical attention. With good reason, the visual
has come to feature in several different disciplines as well as in
inter- or transdisciplinary perspectives (such as "visual studies" or
"visual culture"): vision can be, and has been, conceptualised as a
philosophical category, as cultural medium of expression, as instrument
and technology of visualization as well as a means of communication.

Contexts, Fields, Positions: Situating Cultural Research
Postgraduate Conference, University of East London (UK)
25-26 May 2006

This conference will provide an opportunity to consider how research
contexts shape our study of culture. In the humanities and social sciences
researchers think about and deploy the concept of culture in different ways,
and this is what we want to explore. We refer to 'research contexts' in
their broadest sense, including cultural, institutional and disciplinary
locations, theoretical positions and methodologies. How do the conditions
created and maintained within these contexts determine or shape our object
of study?

Questions central to this conference are:
