LITERARY DISLOCATIONS (Fourth International Congress of THE EUROPEAN NETWORK FOR COMPARATIVE LITERARY STUDIES (REELC/ENCLS); The Institute for Macedonian Literature; The Macedonian Association for Comparative Literature

This conference aims to examine the multiplicity of literary and cultural representations and other phenomena that implicate spatiality, movement and unstable locations which are considered as points of dynamic processes.Dislocation emerges as a notion that traverses various disciplines and different textual and artistic practices and at the same time it amplifies its relevance in the exploration of the current cultural production.

exile, urbanization, etc.).

(Post) Human Lives--A Biography Seminar and Special Issue (12/15/2010; 8/2011)

Tuesday, October 5, 2010 - 1:00am
Center for Biographical Research

In preparation for a special issue of Biography in 2012, to be co-edited by Gillian Whitlock and G. Thomas Couser, we are issuing a call for abstracts for papers dealing with some aspect of the post human, as it has been widely discussed recently. The editors will select from the abstracts, and the chosen contributors will then be invited to a symposium in Honolulu in late August of 2011, when the participants will share more detailed versions of their work, receive comments for the other contributors, and together discuss the focus of the entire collection. Contributors will then prepare revised full versions of their papers, which will be edited in the Fall of 2011. The result will be the Winter 2012 issue of Biography.
