English as a foreign language (EFL) education provides valuable opportunities to introduce global and intercultural perspectives on the challenges of the Anthropocene. One way to engage EFL learners critically with the Anthropocene and make its complexity more accessible, immediate, and meaningful to them is through literary studies. Literature has the power to challenge established ideas, inspire change, and offer fresh perspectives on real-world problems associated with the Anthropocene.

International Conference on Poetry Studies: "Poetry Between Creation and Interpretation"

updated: 
Tuesday, May 9, 2023 - 4:37am
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2023

Poetry is a constant, being produced by all known civilisations from ancient to modern times. Throughout its extensive history, the individual art of high emotions sublimated into perfect language has approached a vast array of subject matters, including love, war, social issues, the beauty of nature, etc. A particular exercise of the mind and soul, and a unique way of apprehending reality, poetry is a self-sufficient universe that intensifies and enlarges life experience. Pointing to inner knowledge rather than real circumstance, it activates different layers of perception, sweeps away human thoughts, feeds emotions and soothes suffering.

updated: 
Tuesday, May 9, 2023 - 4:37am

The conference seeks to explore the narratives of displacement and to demonstrate the validity of a cross-disciplinary approach which brings together the historical, cultural, social and literary expertise in the handling of text. The conference will particularly focus on time and space representations and on treatment of the theme of cultural ambivalence and identity conflict. The subject of displacement will be regarded as both a migration, voluntary or forced, and a sense of being socially or culturally “out of place”.

Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:

Drawing on ideas from permaculture, post- and trans-humanism, social ecology, and anarcho-socialism, while reacting against late stage capitalism, Solarpunk declares that our world is worth saving, and that saving it is possible.

In the aftermath of the World Wars, the concept of disability gained momentum. It was observed that the individuals with disability were subjected to segregation and isolation. However, by the advent of 21st Century, this mindset transitioned from the ‘medical model’ to the ‘social model’ which elevated the positioning of the ‘disabled subject’ from the margins to the forefront. This ‘social model’ further envisaged the inclusion of various discourses such as art, literature, psychology, law, science and health.

Last year we addressed and explored the gaps between academic research and everyday LGBTQIA+ realities, by combining academic presentations with community speakers. This year we’re going one step further, by thinking about what it means to cross these gaps, and bring seemingly-separate dichotomies together.
