Metaphor in Public Discourse

updated: 
Wednesday, March 18, 2009 - 9:36pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association

This session seeks to promote new knowledge about the nature and function of metaphor in public discourse. Interpretations of contemporary events tend to use metaphorical expressions to describe cultural and social changes in society, illuminating but also hiding concepts embedded in discourse. Academicians from various fields of studies will highlight ways in which conceptualizations govern our understanding of key issues and actions in current times. Participants are encouraged to explore metaphor as expressed through written, oral, visual, and gestural languages in public discourse.

Ludic Cartography. Mapping GameSpaces (04/25/2009-06/01/2009)

updated: 
Wednesday, March 18, 2009 - 12:16pm
Stanford University

The How They Got Game Project at Stanford University is currently seeking for papers that explore the connections between mapping, cartographic practices, electronic gaming and virtual worlds for an illustrated book that will be published in 2010. Specifically, we are interested in essays that address the notion of representing spaces in video games and virtual worlds through the aid of maps and mapping tools. Video games and virtual worlds establish new topographies and geographies that - while often making references to preexisting models - create a new understanding of the fictional worlds that we explore. Our goal is to show and explain how digital spaces are being mapped by a new generation of cartographers.

Topics might include:

Modernist Poetics: Writing Self and Society

updated: 
Wednesday, March 18, 2009 - 10:43am
University of Edinburgh

The conference will explore the themes of the modernist 'self' - envisioned as embracing the construction of the figure of the artist, character, gender and sexuality - and modernist 'society', inclusive of visions of nationhood and reflections on war and early twentieth-century politics more widely. The conference will offer the opportunity for a wide-ranging discussion of the intersection of these two spheres in the work of Modernist artists of the period.
