PERSPECTIVES ON PROGRESS 2013
An interdisciplinary postgraduate and early career researcher conference.
The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. November 27-29, 2013.

In 1968, historian Sidney Pollard defined the Victorian ideal of 'progress' as, "the assumption that a pattern of change exists in the history of mankind... that it consists of irreversible changes in one direction only, and that this direction is towards improvement." Despite the increasingly problematic nature of this ideal, the 'progress myth' still remains pervasive in the Western cultural tradition.

MODERN POETRY AND BEYOND
GUEST EDITORS :
Dr Amzed Hossain, Head, Dept of English, ALIAH UNIVERSITY, KOLKATA.

Dr Sukriti Ghosal, Principal, MUC WOMEN'S college, Burdwan

The poetry world is full of fence-building and turf wars. The territory of poetry written since Pound and Eliot tends to be subsumed into categories: modern, postmodern, avant-garde, post-avant-garde, post-post-avant-garde etc. One may not be interested in this mish-mash. However, a common issue is that all poetry since Pound and Eliot is a refusal to acknowledge an overtly oedipal relationship with literary traditions , and a willingness to construct and invent not only new kinds of poetry but new ways of reading.

"LITERATURE AND LANGUAGE: INTERDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES"

updated: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2013 - 12:57am
Catholic University of Cameroon (CATUC) – Bamenda

The nature of contemporary/global problems necessitates solutions that integrate knowledge and methodologies from distinct disciplines. Interdisciplinary perspectives to the interpretation, teaching and study of literature and language create avenues for critics, teachers and students to synthesize more than one discipline, and enrich the overall educational experience. The pedagogy of traditional methodologies encourages concentration on only one discipline; but the dynamism in the availability and flow of information in the age of technology requires an eclectic approach. While proponents of interdisciplinarity argue that it expands understanding and achievement between all disciplines, critics argue that it leads to integration confusion.

In Hip Hop Wars, Tricia Rose argues that, "Hip Hop has become a primary means by which we talk about race in the United States." Rose's insight delves into the historical evolution of the genre and the sociological progression of the movement called Hip Hop. More importantly, Rose's inquiry of Hip Hop admits that Hip Hop has become an important apparatus by which critics, scholars, and artists can engage and examine the American social, personal, public, and private landscapes.
