According to Darcy Ribeiro (1995), the Brazilian people have religiosity as a cornerstone of its culture. It not only played a large role in its “civilizatory” process, but also stimulated resistance movements, among which are the ones in Canudos, Bahia, and Lagoinha, Goiás. Religion has remained a strong identity feature through all of Brazilian history and, still today, it is the center of relevant social conflicts. Nevertheless, there is, in the Brazilian literary scene, very little space dedicated to the study of the representation of individuals and/or religious doctrines. The academy, thus, fosters the shunning of literary works bearing relationship with the mystic, the religious or, anything, in any way, connected with the sacred.

"The Global Trajectories of Asian Modernism" @ MSA Brooklyn

The Modernist Studies in Asia (MSIA) research network is proposing an affiliated panel at the MSA conference in Brooklyn, October 22–25.

Global and planetary modernisms tend to map different modernisms according to countries and continents, implicitly imposing a static, area studies–inflected order on these divergent and discrepant artists, texts, and practices. Against this tendency, for this panel we seek papers that trace surprising movements of modernism (broadly understood) within, across, and beyond Asia. Put another way, we are interested in accounts of how Asian modernism won't stay still.

Digital Methodology in the Linguistic Study of Literature: Theory

Linguistics and Literature Forum Session 1

MLA 2021 Annual Convention, Toronto, Jan 7-10

Digital tools have indisputably made many tasks in the linguistic study of literature much easier and faster than used to be. But the turn to digital methods has brought more than ease and efficiency; it has forever changed the field. What are the ways in which digital tools have shaped the linguistic study of literature? And what are the ways literary studies has itself inspired innovation, methods, and the development of new digital tools?

Digital tools have become increasingly more important in the linguistic study of literature; for instance, they allow us to streamline much of our work. In what ways have digital methods made your work easier or more efficient? Do some tools lend themselves better to particular problems? What best practices have scholars found as they manage programs and data?

Considerable research has been devoted to Fyodor Dostoevsky's incorporation of non-Russian art and texts as inspiration for his writing. Comparatively less attention, however, has been to paid to the immense influence the author's own life and works have had on literature, drama, philosophy, and art. This panel seeks to explore Dostoevsky's reception, as a man and as an author, by 20th and 21st century world writers and artists. It is co-sponsored by the International Dostoevsky Society and the Reception Study Society in celebration of the author's 200th year.

The English Department at UNA welcomes you to participate in this year’s Graduate Conference: Migration: Shifting to and fro and In-between

While influxes of immigrants/migrants/refugees arriving to the U.S. dominate conceptualizations of identity and belonging, it is vital to analyze our deeper understandings of migration. Migration—the act of moving from one place to another—exists in a number of ways, not just geographically. So, how do our limited ways of thinking of migration affect its potential in certain fields/entities/theories?

The Nobel Peace Prize winner, Nadia Murad, a former captive of ISIS is an essential reminder of the sacrifices women make during a war which often go unnoticed or unacknowledged as heroic. In countless areas of the Global South, the female body has endured physical and psychological violation. Rape is an effective strategy of war and ethnic cleansing, and the violated community finds it difficult to speak about their fate during the time of war and of peace as well. In most cases, the raped body goes silent, feeling ashamed and fearing retributions from all spheres of life.

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.

Destination – the word itself concerns both journey and journey’s end. For this issue of Oxford Research in English, we invite articles that delve into arrival and setting forth in literature, as well as the textual, intertextual and extratextual ways one can examine literary places and spaces. “Destination” derives from the Latin dēstināre—to resolve, to determine, to destine— before journeying into French and arriving in English.
