London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, August 1, 2021

Multiple environmental crises are increasingly inescapable at both transnational and local levels and the role of the humanities in addition to technology and politics is more and more recognized as central for exploring and finding solutions. Representations of nature’s agency have become central to many studies conducted in literature, culture studies, philosophy, history, sociology or political science. This conference aims to explore the relationship between the physical environment and text in its broader meaning as well as analyse the social concerns raised by environmental crises.

Conference panels will be related, but not limited, to:

1921-2021: 100 years with and without Kropotkin

updated: 
Tuesday, April 13, 2021 - 9:28am
International Kropotkin Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 31, 2021

Piotr Alekseevich Kropotkin (1842-1921) was one of the most prominent advocates of anarchism during his adult life, but also a famous intellectual and activist in Europe and further afield. In this centenary year of his death, we welcome you to join us for a discussion about his legacy, influence and relevance today. This conference will discuss his life and his work, but also his afterlife. Since February 1921, the world has lived without Kropotkin, but in many ways his ideas and his legacy persist. This conference seeks to specify, debate, contest, and carry on that legacy.

One year later, a “return to normal” remains the pandemic’s most enduring political promise, a token of hope to hedge against continued death and precarity. Held within this recursive promise, however, is a prima facie condition that deserves interrogation. What, exactly, is the “normal” to which we will return? Will capitalism and its attendant crises no longer demand our attention absent a continual state of emergency? The coherence and stability of the “normal” eludes us; Georges Canguilhem sees the normal as itself a chimeric category, one which, from the perspective of medicine and science, is not so distant from the “pathological” it is meant to foil.

A Virtual Symposium and Workshop Series

Humanities Research Center

After a year on Zoom, our bodies have become clear indicators of the disjointed embodiment of the pandemic condition. The lingering effects of COVID-19 blur the boundaries between our biology and psyche. Beyond a philosophical analysis of the mind-body problem, embodied minds and mindful bodies challenge us to find new ways of reading symptoms. What are our bodies telling us?

“Cultures of Collectivity in Pre-Revolutionary French Literature

In keeping with this year’s MMLA conference theme of “Cultures of Collectivity”, this panel solicits propositions that reflect on the many ways in which the individual and the collective were conceived in pre-revolutionary society. Rather than viewing the individual and the collective as being separate facets of social existence, papers that look at the liminal movement between subjective experience and the larger political body will be of particular interest. Possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to:

Illness, Society and the Self

updated: 
Sunday, February 21, 2021 - 7:33pm
Henry James Society
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 15, 2021

In the context of the current viral pandemic, we look with fresh intensity at figurations of the invalid and of disease and disability in James’s fictional and non-fictional writing. With an eye to the cultural and political aspects of public health measures aimed at managing the spread of an infectious pathogen, we ask in particular about the relation in James’s work of sickness, subjectivity and society. How do James’s texts relate social experience to bodily ill-health or impairment? Does James position the invalid as a figure indicative of dysfunction in the larger social body, or suggest, in contrast, that illness or disability may be associated with an excess of social contact, a failure of ‘social distancing’?
