Our goal is to foster the sharing and expressing of the humanities as an urgently important human enterprise––helping to clarify the crucial immediacy of the humanities and why they should be encouraged, supported, and sustained.

Challenging Williams

The forthcoming WCW Society Biennial Conference invites papers on an intentionally diverse range of topics, with the goal of seeking places and poems in Williams’s oeuvre where a (re)evaluation may be fruitful. In what ways does Williams's work continue to challenge us as readers, scholars, persons? Conversely, how may we be drawn or compelled to challenge Williams's work, as readers, scholars, persons?

Plural / Pluriel
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

Pluralism is a very central but elusive contemporary value. Pluralism is the belief that diversity is beneficial to society. Most of us would agree, but what does diversity exactly mean? How to measure it and tell whether a society is more or less diverse?

Cultural pluralism, political pluralism and value pluralism all have slightly different meanings, but they all share the belief that coexistence of diverse opinions, ways of life and value systems is enriching for all members of a society.

Algo-rhythms: Living in and out of sync with technology

Guest editor: Evelyn Wan

Deadline: 18 December 2021

Published: May/June 2022

 

In his One Year Performance 1980-1981 (Time Clock Piece), Tehching Hsieh imposes upon himself the task of clocking-in using punch-card technology every day, every hour, 24 hours a day, all through 365 days of the year. Forcing his corporeal self into the cold rigid regularity of mechanical clock time, he makes visible the rhythmic bind of the machine.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 5, 2021

I am seeking chapter submissions for an interdisciplinary edited collection concerning medieval and early modern medicine (from 1300-1700). The book will be interdisciplinary in nature. I am also especially interested in feminist and queer perspectives. It will focus on the influence of the ‘empirical turn’ (the scientific revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries) in Western medicine. It will include topics on any aspect of medicine, including but not limited to animal medicine, medical recipes, treatments, education, and facilities. The audience will be academic in nature, and I will seek publication with academic presses.

CFP: YOUNG SCHOLARS Session

Conference: Crossing the Border of Humanity: Cyborgs in Ethics, Law, and Art

December 14–15, 2021

Medical University of Łódź, Poland & University of Warwick, Coventry, UK

 

The idea of being a cyborg is as alluring as it is be repulsive (at least to some). Literary and pop-cultural visions of becoming a cyborg and becoming a nation of cyborgs have seductively taken hold of our imagination, resulting in a prevalent, yet simplistic, image of a one-laser-eyed being with a robotic limb. This unanimous picture ostensibly evident what a cyborg is and what (s)he/it is not. We are, after all, by no means something like a Borg!

Experimental Form, Experimental Thought? ACLA 2022 Seminar

Today, experiments about how humans think usually take place in a lab, allowing researchers to locate thought processes in the brain with unprecedented precision. However, writers have experimented with thinking for much longer. For instance, Virginia Woolf argued in her essay “Thoughts on Peace in an Air Raid" (1940) that a new form of (women's) writing can cause a shift in how British men think and bring about peace. Between the Acts (1941) demonstrates how tone, rhythm, and diction can produce different cognitive registers—Elizabethan, Enlightenment, and Victorian—thus connecting form and cognition.
