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

updated: 
Wednesday, January 11, 2023 - 4:56pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 20, 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.

Dante's Trasumanar and Monsters - CAIS 2023 Session Proposal

updated: 
Wednesday, January 11, 2023 - 4:41pm
Chiara Caputi, The Graduate Center CUNY
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 1, 2023

Dante Alighieri expressed the transcendence of the human condition beyond its limitations through the verb trasumanar in Paradiso 1. It is rare evidence that Alighieri had thought of a kind of "transhuman" change in the early 1300s. In the past years, we witnessed the change raised by the feminist movements, especially the last wave called ''transfeminism'', which pointed out how ''being human'' it is not enough for the subjectivities in order to be recognized by politics. For this reason, the word ''posthuman'' was used to show how monsters can be active participants in our society, being part of us.

A thunderbolt of fright strikes through you; you tremble under the covers alone in the dark with creatures of the night, the perpetrators of your restless, anxiety-ridden slumber. Are you brave enough to explore fear a little closer? If you are, then we want to hear about which monsters lurk in your closet, and even the ones that hide under your bed and inside your head.
