‘a voice which has no fellow’

 

20th –21st  September 2018, University of Cambridge

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.

Special Issue: Jane Austen after 200 Years

updated: 
Thursday, November 23, 2017 - 9:47pm
Spring Magazine on English Literature
deadline for submissions: 
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.

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 31, 2018

The International Gothic Association postgraduate blog is looking for bloggers and podcasters!  

 

If you are a graduate student working with any aspect of the Gothic, consider writing us a short blog post, or recording us a podcast. It could relate to your work, or any other Gothic tangent that has taken your interest. Blogs should be around 600 words; short, snappy and conversational, with the aim of sparking conversation within the IGA community. If you want to write a blog longer than 600 words, we would encourage you to split it into two or more parts, but these are supposed to be informal rather than articles or papers.

Rosette Maleficarum
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, November 5, 2017

The Rosette Maleficarum prides itself on literary works that promote the darker aspects of life. From a dilapidated doll that watched her owner abandon her, to the ghost of a soldier  who wanders the battlefield, the journal records to struggles of humanity. Even so, I’m open to little innocent lights, ones that bring back the nostalgia of our youth. But who knows? Just send a piece in, and perhaps it could be published here.

Sarah Hall published her first novel, Haweswater, in 2002. Since then she has developed into one of the UK’s most protean and quietly acclaimed writers, producing poetry, short fiction and novels in a wide range of genres which are nonetheless bound together by a common style and a common set of preoccupations: wild(er)ness, female sexuality and the deep connection between language, landscape and the body.

In recent decades, scholars have become increasingly interested in analyzing and recovering eighteenth-century travel writing, but the visual side of travel texts is often ignored. By the time the word “scrapbook” entered the English lexicon in the 1820s, personal, visual travel records had long existed and circulated in other forms, including the album, the illustrated journal, and the commonplace book. These forms typically contained less of a chronological narrative than written travelogues, but they presented a highly curated, interactive, and, in some cases, tactile experience for their viewers.
