Homing and Hosting: Transnational Belonging across Italian Cultures

updated: 
Wednesday, August 26, 2020 - 11:45am
MLA International Symposium Glasgow 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 18, 2020

Often conceived as a private, intimate space, the “home” is also host to a variety of social, political, and economic dynamics that bring questions of domesticity to merge and interact with broad, even abstract, concerns. Taking as its point of departure the recent critical analysis of “home” as “a matter of search...an open-ended and possibly unaccomplished process” (Boccagni 2017), this session will address how “homing,” “hosting,” and “Italianità” speak to issues of identities, mobilities, and negotiations. Parsing “home” as a place and “homing” as a practice, this panel will concentrate on three major themes: translations and transitions, communities and environments, and hybrid homes and hybrid hosts.

Care to join us in an edited volume? When Beacon Press published Rashid Khalildi's Iron Cage, an early review described it as "at heart a historical essay" (New York Times, 7 October 2006), suggesting that it was, "more ... analysis than an exercise in original research."

At the end of 2019, there were approximately 4.2 million people around the world waiting for a decision on their asylum claims (UNHCR). Amongst them is a particularly vulnerable group: LGBTQI+ people: sons, daughters, parents, partners and lovers, with horrendous histories of imprisonment, bodily harm, torture, and psychological trauma.These atrocities are inflicted on them by their own governments, countrymen, and, worst of all, friends and families.This conference aims to discuss the situation of LGBTQI+  asylum seekers and refugees  who have committed no crime, yet cannot live freely in their own countries due to their sexual orientation or gender identity. 

 

These topics shall be explored under the following themes:

CFP for ICMS 2021 Kalamazoo: Eating Like Orientals in the Medieval Western Imagination

updated:

Soojung Choe
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 15, 2020

In the early stage of the COVID-19 outbreak, a common practice for many western media was to revisit an old orientalist habit to equate eastern culinary customs to primitiveness, eagerly reporting on Chinese “omnivorous markets” and “culinary adventurism” as a likely cause of the pandemic. Western disdain for extremely omnivorous eastern eating habits is not new to medievalists, nor is it a distinctively modern phenomenon. Such disdain for “oriental” eating habits focuses on the purportedly unclean, unethical, underdeveloped ways of eating everything, including whatever is tabooed for a Latin Christian to eat.

You are cordially invited to join us at the Shakespeare Association of America's 2021 conference in Austin, Texas, 31 March - 3 April 2021  Seminar: Embodying Differences in Global Shakespearean Performance The ethics of embodied difference intersect with global frames for filming and performing Shakespeare in the twenty-first century. How do categories of race, gender, sexuality, and disability put pressure on artists’ and audiences’ claims about ethical and political gains of global Shakespeare? This seminar invites contributions that examine identity politics in the production and global reception of adaptations.

Madness and Melancholy in Early Modern English Drama (RSA Dublin, April 7-10, 2021)

updated: 
Saturday, August 1, 2020 - 2:58pm
Avi Mendelson / RSA Conference, Dublin, 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 10, 2020

Few people know about Kelly Thomas, a homeless man diagnosed with schizophrenia who, in 2011, was beaten to death in Orange County by six police officers. Thomas was unarmed. All the officers were acquitted. The way we treat those with mental illness has become of interest to humanities scholars, particularly those working in Disability Studies. Margaret Price’s brave research, in Mad at School, rallies against the exclusion of those with mental disability from academic discourse (and academic life). Scholars of early modern disability have explored various neurodiversity in theater, from figurations of wise fools to imaginings of mad revengers.
