International Conference on Oral History

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:54pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 15, 2019

For decades, oral history was considered less than scholarly, leading to its exclusion from several history books; thus valuable first-hand experiences and information that could alter historical truth were neglected and ultimately lost to oblivion. Our conference wishes to challenge the pervading view that oral testimony can lead to false representation of historical events and underline the significant support it can provide to historical research, especially in lieu of written documentation.

Through the centuries, humans have often shaped their social life by fictional moments and by taking part in fictional events: carnivals, representations, role plays, society plays, structured and semi-structured collective and singular moments where strictly coded contexts organize specific worlds and cultural dimensions. Play, in its wide acception and in its nature of artificial and coded mechanism, reflects historically the symbolic work by which human societies have elaborated, explained and organized the world.

London Studies Workshop: Women Walking in the City

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:52pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 23, 2019

Inspired by the journey of Virignia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway and Lauren Elkin’s critical work Flaneuse, this one-day workshop seeks to explore the idiosyncratic journey of various women in the city of London as represented in British fiction. The course will focus on the idea of women in public space and think about the ways in which the city provides women new freedoms to think, to explore and to be. We will look at work by Virginia Woolf, Muriel Spark and Anita Brookner and discuss representations of the city landscape in specific texts. We will also engage with some theories and ideas of the city in modernism and critical theory.

Every day we move through spaces that have been constructed or delineated somehow to be significant. We recognise and —consciously or unconsciously — react to this significance on a daily or hourly basis, and we draw from a cultural well of knowledge in order to do so.

Modernism and Disability Aesthetics

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 11:58am
Rafael Hernandez / American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 23, 2019

Recent work in the field of disability studies by scholars like Ato Quayson (2007), Tobin Siebers (2010), Maren Linett (2016), and Suzannah Biernoff (2017) has considered modernism’s appropriation of disabled bodies. This seminar thus seeks to better understand the role of disability in modernist literary and visual aesthetics. In particular, we encourage papers that consider how writers and artists borrowed from, mimicked, or otherwise recast disability as uniquely modernist literary and artistic subjects. Secondly, this seminar is interested in the ways modernism was cast as disabled in varied attacks on its aesthetic projects.
