CFP: Women in Rock / Women in Romanticism

Of the 605 proposals received by Bloomsbury for their 2015 33 1/3 Series call for papers, only 18% of contributors and 11% of artists covered were women, even though the female series editor was aggressively soliciting contributions by and about women. Rock and Romanticism: Women in Rock / Women in Romanticism seeks to address a visible shortcoming in scholarship about women in both popular music and in English Romanticism by bringing the two together in this collection.

By whom, and by what means, was this designed?
The whispered incantation which allows
Free passage to the phantoms of the mind?
                                        . . .
By the delicate, invisible web you wove —
The inexplicable mystery of sound.

 

               — From T. S. Eliot, ‘To Walter de la Mare’

The Joys of the Erotic: Building Human Connections
An Inclusive Interdisciplinary project

29th to 30th June 2018
Palermo, Italy

The erotic. A complex, tangled, and ephemeral web of meeting points, interfaces and intersections at the centre of human experiences. It informs our lives, shapes our perceptions and pulls us toward one another while being itself shaped by shifting tastes and perceptions. Shrouded in mystery, it is tantalising, alluring and dangerous all at once. Eroticism is frequently displayed in film, embedded in music, intimated in art and literature, as well as in the advertising on city streets, travel shows and fashion events. Above all, it builds pathways which bring us closer to each other.

Sunday, December 31, 2017

One of the original bestselling authors, Jane Austen (1775-1817) has successfully managed to bridge the gap between what is often perceived as the non-negotiable chasm between canonical and popular literature. Her works, two centuries after her demise, are, in fact without exaggeration, more popular now than in her own period. Once written off as an author who provides the readers with a limited perspective of the world — as her characters are seemingly unperturbed by political events, Austen shows unparalleled finesse in depicting the characters and setting using a “fine brush” to artistically explore and exploit her “two inches of ivory”. What is evident, debates regarding her subject matter notwithstanding, is that Austen’s popularity has not faded.
