Following the success of the Fall Narratives project in 2014, this workshop will explore the theme of fallen animals. The serpent in the Garden of Eden is but one example of the ambivalence which has characterized the human-animal relationship over the centuries, both across, and within, cultures, societies and traditions. With publications such as Anat Pick's Creaturely Poetics (2011), the field of post-anthropocentrism studies has in recent years become particularly vibrant and attracts scholarly attention from a variety of disciplines. We welcome proposals with research interest in fields such as, but not limited to, literature, religion, languages, history, philosophy, psychology, art, film and visual culture, cultural studies and economics.
The department of English at the High Institute of Human Sciences of Jendouba, University of Jendouba, invites you to participate in its study day on Order and Disorder. The study day will be held April 21st, 2015, on the campus of the High Institute of Human Sciences of Jendouba, Tunisia.
