Scholarship on the global Middle Ages has flourished in recent years, examining the role that a

global community played in the medieval period. Such work demonstrates the remarkable links

between various civilizations in the medieval period and the extent to which the Middle Ages truly

were a hotbed of trade. Recent scholarship has considered the cultural interactions of trade, literary

transmission, pilgrimage, religious conversion, explorers, colonization, and military expeditions. For

instance, literary scholars have shown that the story of Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, traveled from

India through texts in Armenian, Arabic, Ethiopic, Georgian, Greek, Latin, Russian, and other versions,

  Literature from the Antipodes has become increasingly influential. The New Zealand writers Janet Frame, Katherine Mansfield, Keri Hulme, Alan Duff; Australian writers Colleen McCullough, Joan Lindsay, and Miles Franklin are only a few of the prominent names. Significant antipodal literature has recently explored themes of colonial versus native cultures, nation building, indigenous culture and nature versus imposed Western vision of what should be.

Social factors such as race, gender, and class influence relationships of power between individuals and groups, separating those with access to cultural, political, and financial resources from those without.  Functioning as overlapping lenses through which to examine cultural texts, they can be used as tools with which to condone or contest repression and domination in the daily lives of individuals.

“Those who labour in the earth are the chosen people of God, if ever he had a chosen people…” (Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, Query XIX). This quote from Thomas Jefferson’s Notes on the State of Virginia (1785) represents an attitude towards agriculture and specifically the family farm that remains influential in the United States today. Connection to the land is still viewed as sacred even as less people work on the land as farmers and ranchers (two percent according to the last census) and environmentalists struggle to reclaim the “soul” of agriculture from the industrial interests that have reshaped farming and the American farmer.

Spaces / Borders / Identities in Europe

Friday, August 12, 2016 - 8:53am
Section "Space / Culture" of the Association for Cultural Studies (KWG) / Vechta, Germany
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 25, 2016

The panel “Spaces / Borders / Identity” deals with the spatial dimension of migration movements in Europe and focuses especially on aspects of identity formations und identity negotiations in border spaces. It is primarily concerned with the discussion of migration as a border-crossing process that challenges spatial borders and that enables and necessitates the constitution of complex identities. It also considers translocal and transnational identities in flux, as they can be described by theoretical concepts important to cultural studies such as orientalism (Edward Said), “third space” and hybridity (Homi Bhabha), contact zones (Mary Louise Pratt) and border spaces as heterotopias.
