Hotels & Crisis: Historical and Cultural Perspectives (Deadline extended)

25-26 June 2022

London, UK

Scholars exploring histories and stories of hotels have identified many ways in which they have been actively embroiled within civil conflicts. They are sites of violence and of refuge. They are communication and command centres. They are also sites for diplomacy which aims to bring conflict to an end. Hotels have often been ‘soft’ targets in conflicts, because of their high level of openness compared to other institutions. Potent symbolisms and distinctive affordances have made hotels significant shapers of conflict.

Carmilla’s Sisters – Female Vampires in Literature, Film and Popular Culture

updated:

Université Bordeaux Montaigne
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 31, 2022

Nearly thirty years after the publication of Nina Auerbach’s seminal study Our Vampires, Ourselves, we felt the 150th anniversary of J. S. Le Fanu’s Carmilla provided an opportunity to revisit vampire fictions centred on female figures – as yet a largely unchartered territory. Despite a few pages devoted to Carmilla and queer vampires – in The Vampire Book by Gordon J. Melton, 1999, Le miroir obscur. Histoire du cinéma des vampires, by Stéphane du Mesnildot, 2013, or the catalogue of the 2019 exhibition at the Cinémathèque Française –, the centrality of Dracula and male vampires still remains prevalent in critical literature.

Apocalypse implies a number of fraught theoretical terms, such as Freud’s death drive or the concept of the Anthropocene. Apocalypse, as a genre and a term, invites capacious understandings and definitions. To ground apocalypse in the past, present, and future, we can look to Kathryn Yusoff’s conception of the Anthropocene as “a politically infused geology and scientific/popular discourse [that] is just now noticing the extinction it has chosen to continually overlook in the making of its modernity and freedom” (Preface xiii).
