Abstracts and articles are sought for an edited collection to be entitled Decentering the Anthropocene: Spanish Ecocritical Texts and the Non-Human. Ecocriticism examines literary and cultural representations of the natural environment and diverse life forms, often in the context of broader political, economic, and social issues and often with an ethical commitment to sustainability and environmental justice. In this context, ecocritical work may interrogate how texts treat anthropocentrism, or the centralization of humans’ perspectives, needs, and experiences over those of other beings.

The coexistence in practice though not always in name of sometimes very different knowledges is both an ancient and modern concern. The Middle Ages saw the development of the concept of translatio studii alongside a growing interest in translation from other languages and cultures, both ancient and contemporary. At its core, translatio studii is the absorption of knowledge or practice from one culture into another, resulting in a text or practice that presents itself as part of the dominant culture, but retains something of its origins as well.
From the trial of Marie/Marin le Marcis (1601) to the esthetics of the monstrueux in Pantagruel (1532) and Phèdre (1677) to the shifting literary optic of Jacques le Fataliste et son maître (1796), questions of hybridity, duality, and paradox have remained central to development of the Early Modern literary canon and its related philosophical principles. In keeping with this year’s MMLA convention theme of “Duality, Doubles and Doppelgängers”, papers investigating the complex relationship between the notions of duality, plurality and hybridity will be of particular interest. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
Essay Collection CFP: Medieval Beer Culture and Modern Beer Medievalisms

The imagination of the Middle Ages runs wild on the internet. From popular history to pseudohistorical conspiracy theories, from gaming culture to memes, the medieval inspires the present. The study of medievalism is now a well-established field of study, but scholars rarely venture beyond American and Western European cultural sphere.

Questions of crime and punishment are writ large across many of our social and political spaces. We see injustice navigated on social media and protested in the streets, spun on film and fought in music. The narratives of criminals and law makers, sometimes valorised and sometimes vilified, surround us.
We are announcing a call for papers for the second St Andrews Institute of Medieval Studies (SAIMS) Graduate Conference. This three-day conference is aimed at graduate students and early career researchers in any area of Medieval Studies. The second day of the conference will be devoted to the theme Politics and Political Thought and we would particularly welcome abstracts related to this topic from scholars working in any of the fields mentioned below. We aim to encompass a range of historical perspectives, from art to archaeology, law to literature.

Academic Stream: Sunday 27 October
On the final day of the HNSA conference, we will bring together postgraduates, academics, and other interested scholars to consider the complexities of the genre of historical fiction and its readership. What counts as an historical novel is increasingly up for grabs: in terms of period (what counts as ‘the past’—and how past is past?), and the porosity of the boundaries of genre (viz. how historical is historical fantasy?).
