Premodern New Materialisms

      In recent decades, critical theory and scholarship have taken up the category of matter and the material in order to renew interrogations of categories such as the “self” and the “human.” But whereas mid-twentieth century scholarship’s Marxist-historicist turn focused on material circumstances of reading and its social and political effects, these more recent theoretical endeavors – loosely aggregated under the framework of “new materialism” – explore and expand the notion of matter itself: what, after all, is matter, and how does it affect society and its discursive practices? How does it have agency or force, and how does it relate to life, broadly understood?

The Ancient and Modern Traditions of Introspective Analysis

updated: 
Friday, September 18, 2020 - 9:50am

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

In a letter to Lucilius, Seneca distinguishes between a person's being and "the trappings in which he is clothed," urging his interlocutor to "consider [the] soul" in order to distinguish true being from false appearance. In addition to the distinction he makes between being and appearance, Seneca indicates here an analytical tool by which Lucilius can learn to see beyond illusory appearances in order to comprehend the true nature of things (animum intuere). Seneca's instrumental approach to this analysis constitutes a major component of the Ancient tradition of introspective analysis: across genres ancient authors such as Virgil, Propertius, Martial, Horace, Tacitus, Plato, and Aristotle performed similar analyses.

The College English Association’s 52st national conference, from April 8-10, 2021, will focus on the theme of justice, and will be held in Birmingham, Alabama, where the freedom ensured by civil rights has been contested by the government in both the past and present. Birmingham’s notoriety as a focal point of the Civil Rights Movement, including the Birmingham Campaign, the imprisonment of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the writing of his “Letter from Birmingham Jail” is matched by the city’s renown for forging steel, founding Veteran’s Day, and hosting the USA’s second-oldest drag queen pageant.

Abstract

ICMS Kalamazoo 2021: Treating Animals: Veterinary Science in the Middle Ages

updated: 
Monday, August 31, 2020 - 9:59am
International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo; May 7-10, 2020. Special Session.
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 15, 2020

Medieval animal studies has tended to privilege literary and encyclopedic texts, viewing animals within Aristotelian hierarchies of rationality, while research on animals in medieval medicine has focused on their use as ingredients, rather than their potential status as patients. There have been few discussions of animals and humans in relationships of care, or of animals as the recipients of medical treatment. In this panel, we seek to expand these conversations by centering veterinary medicine, including treatment manuals (e.g., hawking handbooks), literary representations of veterinary practices (e.g., romance heroes caring for horses), and other genres that concern the (un)ethical, (il)legal, or (im)proper treatment, training, or keeping of animals.

You are cordially invited to join us at the Shakespeare Association of America's 2021 conference in Austin, Texas, 31 March - 3 April 2021  Seminar: Embodying Differences in Global Shakespearean Performance The ethics of embodied difference intersect with global frames for filming and performing Shakespeare in the twenty-first century. How do categories of race, gender, sexuality, and disability put pressure on artists’ and audiences’ claims about ethical and political gains of global Shakespeare? This seminar invites contributions that examine identity politics in the production and global reception of adaptations.

Hamlet and the North: Origins, Exchanges and Appropriations The story of Shakespeare’s Nordic play is also, inevitably, one of cultural exchanges before, during and after the early modern period. From its origins in Nordic tradition to its re-introduction in the Nordic countries through Shakespeare’s play, the story of Hamlet from the middle ages to present time is inextricably bound up with Nordic history and culture. This conference, co-hosted by the Nordic Shakespeare Society and the Early Modern Seminar at the University of Gothenburg, is the first to explore the specific Nordic dimensions of Hamlet.

Though ubiquitous across stage, page and screen, images of siblings remain an under-researched and under-discussed phenomenon. The relationships, rivalries, conflicts and collaborations between brothers and sisters are frequently overlooked, and yet offer the possibility for fascinating discussion and insight into a wide range of cultural texts.

Few people know about Kelly Thomas, a homeless man diagnosed with schizophrenia who, in 2011, was beaten to death in Orange County by six police officers. Thomas was unarmed. All the officers were acquitted. The way we treat those with mental illness has become of interest to humanities scholars, particularly those working in Disability Studies. Margaret Price’s brave research, in Mad at School, rallies against the exclusion of those with mental disability from academic discourse (and academic life). Scholars of early modern disability have explored various neurodiversity in theater, from figurations of wise fools to imaginings of mad revengers.

From text to classroom, at all skill and grade levels, and in every medium and format, Shakespeare appears in textbooks and curricula around the world. Educators choose Shakespeare across languages and with recourse to diverse media, encouraged by student recognition of cultural references, images, and quotations which generate a valuable touchstone for teaching literature and theatre, and from there lead to developing critical thinking, artistic expression, language, and communication skills.
