Department of Philosophy and Society. Complutense University of Madrid
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, April 29, 2020

For years, the literature on boredom has been crowded with complaints about the scarcity of research on the subject, even though there is a large amount of papers and books on this phenomenon, since philosophers, theologians, sociologists, and writers have reflected on boredom for centuries. The area of cross-disciplinary Boredom Studies has been successfully launched and continued to steadily grow over the last two decades. Whatever domain of reality boredom researchers scrutinize, boredom emerges as a significant part of our daily lives.

REMINDER: Dark Economies: Anxious Futures, Fearful Pasts CFP

updated: 
Wednesday, January 22, 2020 - 10:41am

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 2, 2020

 

 After the success of the Folk Horror in the Twenty First Century conference hosted by Falmouth University, we are holding another related conference in 2020.

 

The present is dark. With the rise of right-wing populism, global migrations and immigrations, continued violence, abuse and crime, prejudice and intolerance, there is increasing anxiety about the future. The Earth itself is under threat from environmental catastrophe and a mass extinction event is anticipated. The collapse of society, morality, and the environment was often also feared in the past, particularly in Gothic, horror and dystopian fictions and texts. What were the monsters of the past? What are our monsters now?

Wednesday, January 22, 2020 - 10:29am
Department of Humanistic Studies, University of Ferrara
deadline for submissions:

The discourse of the environment permeates attitudes towards the present, representations of the past and perceptions of the future.

How do languages, literatures and other modes of meaning-making promote ecocritical frameworks that interrogateWestern and Eastern anthropocentric assumptions, biases and expectations?

How do the environmental humanities test new hermeneutic tools to assess the interdependence between natural and anthropic ecosystems? 

Our focus is onnew narratives of fragile and resilient environments; the im/material wellbeing of the organisms that live in them; the interconnections between diverse forms of life.

 

Topics and areas of research include:

Climate change fiction
