Trauma is typically considered ‘responsive to and constitutive of “modernity”’ (Micale and Lerner 2001). Certainly, as argued by Mark Seltzer, ‘modernity has come to be understood under the sign of the wound’: ‘the modern subject has become inseparable from the categories of shock and trauma.’

The International Association for Robin Hood Studies Conference will be held at Missouri Valley College, USA, on October 18-21, 2023. It will be a hybrid conference. This conference brings together scholars to present current research on the famous outlaw as he appears in both medieval and post-medieval media.
This conference will focus on (but not exclusively) discussions of Robin Hood and machine culture, with special emphasis on AI as a Robin Hood-like disrupter, banditry from robots and machines, and Robin as a subverter of social norms and expectations. We anticipate that this theme will allow us to address both traditional Robin Hood subjects and current changes happening in academic culture.
Noticing a lack of interest in animated adaptations, Paul Welles offers to “acknowledge its ability to actually encompass the widest vocabulary of aesthetic and technical expression, and notionally its great capacity to accommodate the broadest range of literary suggestion” (1999, p. 200).

Our conference aims to encourage studies that explore an emerging paradigm in intermediality studies centred on "affective intermediality", and we hope to initiate a friendly, scholarly debate regarding the relevance and productivity of this approach. The necessity of such an “affective turn” of intermediality studies arises from viewing intermediality as an intricate and highly performative process of communication between humans within a particular context of material reality and historical time, not just as a “transfer”, a “combination” or “reference” of media characteristics or representations, i.e.
This panel calls for stories exploring contemporary creative works as fluid and diverse moments and their relation to what it means to have an identity as both queer and African. This intersection between queer and African is fraught with conflict in the present political and social understanding of homosexuality as un-African and a Western ideology transported to Africa during colonialism. Therefore, when most African nations have made homosexuality illegal, thus, preventing human rights from queer Africans and making them surplus, this panel calls for short stories, poems, memoirs, and novel extracts about queer African characters.

"The greatest event of our age is the meeting of cultures, meeting of civilizations, meeting of different points of view, making us understand that we should not adhere to any one kind of single faith, but respect diversity of belief. Our attempt should always be to cooperate, to bring together people, to establish friendship and have some kind of a right world in which we can live together in happiness, harmony and friendship. Let us therefore realize that this increasing maturity should express itself in this capacity to understand what other points of view are’?"- Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan.
Most academic disciplines today remain entrenched in a lack of epistemic trust. The theories and methods through which knowledge production is validated are still determined at the centers of global academic production, while some epistemologies, counted as 'peripheral', are prevented from disseminating beyond their national borders. Non-Western epistemologies are stunted by hegemony and the pervasiveness of anthropocentric Western thought and are thus not central in the shaping of academic fields.

Digital technologies like virtual reality and artificial intelligence are impacting the ways we imagine visuality, storytelling and creativity. Alongside the still- emerging potentials of smart phones, social media and streaming media, there is a shifting, dizzying horizon for the future of creating and consuming graphic/visual narratives.
