Final Reminder CFP (30/10): Forgotten Bodies PG Conference, 9th Jan 2010

Monday, October 19, 2009 - 1:11pm
The University of Exeter

Forgotten Bodies will provide a forum in which postgraduate researchers can explore often overlooked discourses, representations and practices relating to embodiment, sexuality and gender. Previous research into this field has often urged overly simplistic hegemonic models of practices, desires and identities, which this conference hopes to reassess. Our main objective is to explore the challenges of not only researching, including but also re-positioning so-called 'forgotten bodies' in academic programmes.

"That Which Moves: The Kinetic Nature of Language and Literature"  

January 29th, 2010 ● 10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

All things change, nothing is extinguished. There is nothing in the whole world which is permanent. Everything flows onward; all things are brought into being with a changing nature; the ages themselves glide by in constant movement.

Nationalism(s) and Cultural Memory in Texts of Childhood (15 Nov. 2009, 1 Feb. 2010)

Monday, October 19, 2009 - 9:36am
Benjamin Lefebvre

This proposed collection of essays seeks to address the interplay between nationalism (or nationalisms) and cultural memory in a range of texts for or about young people, including books, periodicals, films, television series, games, tourism sites, websites, and archives. The overall collection will be concerned with the ways in which cultural memory is shaped, contested, forgotten, recovered, and (re)circulated, sometimes in opposition to dominant national narratives, featuring young characters and/or targeting young readers who are often assumed not to possess any prior cultural memory. Submissions that examine the circulation of such texts across national borders are particularly welcomed.
Possible topics include:

Call for Papers

After the success of the inaugural conference for this project, we are
pleased to announce the Second Annual Conference, to be held in Prague
in May 2010. The conference is a keystone of the 'Good Sex, Bad Sex'
interdisciplinary.net project that seeks to explore the nature,
character and issues around the prohibition, regulation or permission of
different and distinct forms of sexuality and debates around their
legal, ethical and cultural status in contemporary societies.
