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.

Ancient and Modern Relations - PAMLA, March 30, 2009 - San Francisco

updated: 
Tuesday, March 17, 2009 - 4:24pm
Andrew Warren

I will be chairing a panel on Ancient-Modern Relations at November's Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association's conference in San Francisco. The conference tends to be wide-ranging, so work on anything related to the topic is welcome. Of particular interest are issues related to: Romanticism, the C19, and Modernism; "Orientalism" and/in the Ancient World; Postcolonial approaches to and definitions of the "Ancient"; and Critical Theory's debt to Ancient Philosophy.

But again, this is a broadly defined panel, and all proposals dealing with Ancient and Modern Relations are welcome.

The conference dates are November 6-7, 2009, in San Francisco.
