The Uses and Abuses of Civility, 1500-1700',

26th-27th May 2023, Université de Neuchâtel, Switzerland.

This conference provides an opportunity for scholars to re-examine early modern Europe’s fascination with civil conduct. What actions were performed in the name of civility, and who benefitted from the culture of civility that flourished in early modern Europe? How were codes of manners popularly used to justify the stratification of society within and outside of Europe? What legacy has the genre of conduct literature left behind?

We welcome papers that provide new analyses of:

Postcolonial Infrastructure [EXTENDED]

Extended Deadline: 31 January 2023

 

Mobility systems, urban planning, markets, educational facilities, digital appliances: infrastructure organizes social life, assigns subject positions, and enables or prevents cultural exchange. Yet its powerful role often goes unnoticed as most infrastructure is designed to recede into the half-conscious background of daily life. In recent years, researchers in several fields have begun to uncover the sociopolitical hierarchies and resistant forces at work in the construction, maintenance, transformation, and dismantling of infrastructure. Postcolonial studies has much to contribute to this research—and vice versa.

The Borders and Crossings international conference series is dedicated to the study of travel writing. It was first hosted in Derry in 1998 thanks to the work of Glenn Hooper and Tim Youngs and since 2012 has taken place on a regular basis. The Borders and Crossings conference series has played a catalytic role in the development of travel writing studies as it provides a forum for scholars across a range of disciplines and from wide variety of national contexts to meet regularly, to explore an increasingly rich corpus of travel writing, and to debate its importance to the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.

Jamesian Space (American Literature Association)

Sunday, December 4, 2022 - 7:39pm
Sarah Wadsworth / Henry James Society
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 10, 2023

In the aftermath of the spatial turn in literary studies, we look for fresh approaches to Jamesian spaces, material and metaphorical, real and imaginary. James’s texts have explicit spatial dimensions. Whether as settings aesthetically conceived or as sites of cultural, social, and political signification, spaces in James constitute means of thematic as well as formal exploration and even experimentation. From the Roman Colosseum to the “house of fiction” and from the “chamber of consciousness” to the “jolly corner” and the “amazing hotel-world,” James’s literary geography emphatically asserts the dynamic relations between space, subjectivity, and text.

1st International Conference on the Literary Knots between the Hispanic and the Anglophone Worlds “De guiris y castizos”

updated: 
Thursday, October 13, 2022 - 9:11am
Universidad Complutense de Madrid
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2023

The pathways of both the Hispanic and the anglophone world, despite the apparent distance between them, and the different historical events that have confronted them, have usually been parallel, showing multiple links. These have affected all aspects of society (politics, economy, war, tourism, education…) and have been reflected by arts and letters. From the English intellectuals working at the Toledo School of Translators to Javier Marías’s novels, via the English (and then American) travelers in Spain, Telesforo de Trueba y Cossío’s hybrid texts, and the successive Spanish exile waves, both worlds have coalesced. And that has been done so with multiple and enjoyable fruits, attracting the attention of Academia in the recent decades.

Monday, October 24, 2022

Following a ceremony (winter 2021) in which Barbados officially removed Queen Elizabeth II as head of state, Prince William and Kate Middleton visited Jamaica. They were met with protestors calling for apologies and reparations from the British Crown. At least five other former British colonies besides Jamaica, including Belize, the Bahamas, Grenada, Antigua and Barbuda, and St. Kitts and Nevis have also indicated a desire to sever direct relationships with the British Monarchy. Considering 2023 marks the 210th anniversary of Edward Long’s death, the author of the famous three-volume History of Jamaica (1774), how might we read Long’s illustrated book when the British Caribbean seems less British?

This panel brings together diverse readings of the hotel as a peculiarly evocative transfer point in narratives of modernity and postmodernity. It examines the uncanny power of the hotel to symbolize many of the key attributes of modern and contemporary writing, cinema, art, and, indeed, subjectivity: freedom, mobility, anonymity, alienation, limitless self-recreation (to name a few).

We seek presentations on any aspect of teaching the eighteenth-century within a global context. Presentations might focus on strategies for teaching transcultural and transnational encounters; travel, trade, or colonialism; eighteenth-century world literatures; or any text or set of texts—written, oral, visual, aural, or material—that “globalizes” students’ engagement with the eighteenth century. We welcome presentations on the teaching of subject matter that exposes, interrogates, unsettles, decenters, or displaces a Eurocentric world view.

October 24, 2022, is the extended deadline.

Universities increasingly recognize the value of connecting students to local communities to promote concepts of care: volunteerism, problem-solving, stewardship. What role does literature play in place-based community engagement? How does reading or writing ‘literatures of place’ (regional or environmental literature, travel or nature writing, ecopoetry) connect students to a place and contribute to place-based solutions?
