Women of Ireland : confronting Eastern and Western perspectives (16-17 June 2011)

updated: 
Wednesday, October 20, 2010 - 12:06pm
Université Sorbonne Nouvelle - Paris 3

If contemporary research on Ireland and its relationship with the world has tended, understandably, to privilege either the United States or Great Britain, the aim of this conference is to move beyond these geographical boundaries and consider Ireland's relationship not just with its British neighbours, but also with Eastern Europe and the Middle East, and to analyse this specifically in relation to women's experiences. Ireland has undergone massive change over the last two decades, the years of economic boom and immigration having recently given way to economic disaster and the introduction of hardline immigration

[UPDATE] CFP: Narrative Scale and the Limits of the Sensible (2011 Intl. Conference on Narrative, April 7–11)

Katie R. Muth

We welcome paper proposals on narrative scale in late twentieth- and early twenty-first-century fiction, film, or visual media for the 2011 International Conference on Narrative. We are specifically interested in essays exploring the relationship between narrative representation and what the selection of scale brings to view or obscures. For example, what is made legible if we imagine literary history in terms of blunt dates (like the annular study) rather than in terms of broad conceptual markers (like modernity)? Or what is the relationship between evolution as metaphor bounded by narrative and scientific evolutionary theory? Particular areas of interest might include:

Contemporary Labor and Cultural Exchange (ACLA 2011; Deadline: Nov. 12)

updated: 
Tuesday, October 19, 2010 - 4:52pm
American Comparative Literature Association

The structure of the labor force and the experience of work have undergone a number of significant shifts in the past half-century. The transition to a post-industrial or service-based economy in America and other Western countries was accompanied by the substitution of a geographically dispersed working class for the local workers of the preceding era. As Linda McDowell argues, this new class increasingly performs embodied service work, much of which was once located in the home. In more prestigious service occupations, "the physical attributes of the body" and the worker's emotions are also an integral part of the labor performed.

Decomposing Fictions: A Special Issue of Horror Studies

updated: 
Tuesday, October 19, 2010 - 2:01pm
Steven Bruhm

Julia Kristeva's work on abjection reminds us that horror is often keyed to things that decompose, rot, or lose their form. This formal concern is a literary one as well: fictions of horror also revel in de-composition, that is, in significations that lose their composure, in letters that refuse to convey, or in utterances that seem to be without subject or object. Horror Studies is seeking essays for a special issue devoted to horror and textuality that will address problems of textual decomposition. In the twentieth century's turn to the film image as arguably the primary vehicle for horror, "Decomposing Fictions" will address how theories and practices of textuality resonate with or operate differently from the visual horror image.
