Call for Panels - Europe and its Worlds: Cultural Mobility in, to and from Europe

Tuesday, November 6, 2012 - 5:56am
Radboud University Nijmegen, Faculty of Arts and Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies

The Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies at Radboud University Nijmegen jointly welcome panel proposals for an international conference on their common research theme 'Europe and its Worlds'. At the core of this theme is the question of how Europe has always consisted of different worlds, how it differs from the rest of the world, and how it interacts with other worlds. This conference specifically addresses the many ways in which cultural mobility impacts on European culture, past and present. The notion of cultural mobility raises new questions on issues of persistance, change and interaction, as Stephen Greenblatt argues in Cultural Mobility: A Manifesto (2010).

September 11 Attacks: Twelfth Anniversary Conference

ACLA 2013 Seminar: Migrant Cartography: (Dis)Placing South Asia (DEADLINE: November 15)

With more than 14% of the world's refugee population, South Asia, as a region, hosts the fourth largest concentration of refugees. Displaced on account of religious, ethnic and political conflicts, refugee communities force us to experience the fluidity of borders from within the cartography of nations. From the refugee cross-border migrations during the Partition of India in 1947 to the more recent Tamil refugee crisis in Sri Lanka, the influx of Afghan war refugees in Pakistan, and the relocation of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, modern South Asia has repeatedly witnessed the pain of people in a state of statelessness.

Gendering the Book in the Long Eighteenth Century, 13 July 2013

Monday, November 5, 2012 - 5:37pm
University of Leeds

Proposals are invited for 20-minute papers for Gendering the Book, a one-day conference to be held at the University of Leeds. The conference will close with a keynote address from Professor Richard Cronin (University of Glasgow).
This conference aims to connect recent scholarship in the areas of book-history and material culture to work on Romantic constructions of masculinity and femininity by considering how men and women in the long eighteenth century imagined their relationship to textual objects. How did cultures of production, consumption, and exchange contribute to the construction of gendered identities? Did these practices and identities change over time, and how far was the book itself a gendered object?

[UPDATE] ACLA 2013: "Repositioning America as an Atlantic and Pacific Nation" (April 4-7, 2013) DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION NOV. 15

Monday, November 5, 2012 - 4:54pm
American Comparative Literature Association [ACLA]

"The United States," says Bruce Cumings, "is the only great power with long Atlantic and Pacific coasts, making it simultaneously an Atlantic and a Pacific nation." Yet, theorizations of transnational America conventionally focus on one or the other, not both. This seminar explores the challenge of situating America bicoastally as a problem of epistemology that engaging with American literary and philosophical histories can illuminate. We posit alongside Carolyn Porter that what vexes the American subject's ability to position itself in history and geography is an Emersonian literary tradition of ahistorical and reified consciousness.
