1st International "Liberal Arts at Sapir" Conference

Sunday, July 7, 2013 - 4:06am
Dept. of Multi Disciplinary Studies, Sapir Academic College, Israel

Borders are dangerous, hesitant, unstable, and yet, opportunities for co-existence. Borders are narrow and therefore inhabitable; one can turn back to revisit the familiar or push forward into unexplored terrains. Borders transform and reassemble identities; they define and disengage, untie and unite.
This conference sets out to explore the concepts of border, limit and threshold within and between disciplines, theoretical approaches and methodologies in the humanities and social sciences. Fields/areas of research and topics include, but are not limited to:
Crossing literal and figurative boundaries
Hybridity, liminality, and intertexuality
Adaptation and Appropriation
Queer Theory

Saints and Sinners: Postmodernism, Feminism and Medievalism in Literature in English

Saturday, July 6, 2013 - 2:44am
Department of English Literature, Faculty of English, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland

'I am a stranger in this world' says the nun, the narrator of a story of a forbidden book by Marguerite Porete. The year is 1340, thirty years after Marguerite was burned at the stake for writing and disseminating her heretical work, The Mirror of Simple Souls. The place is England, a Cistercian nunnery where she tells her story the night before her death, knowing that the book irretrievably changed but also shortened her life. But the idea of being a stranger in the world is not an uncommon one for many other Michele Roberts' characters. From the early feminists to postmodern protagonists her novels rewrite medieval saints and sinners, Victorian mediums and contemporary visionaries, offering us new perspectives on well known stories and motifs.
