[UPDATE] Irish Gothic Conference 5-6 December, 2013

Università degli Studi di Perugia / Università per Stranieri di Perugia

Gothic studies have recently been expanding previous limits of what was once thought to be an historically well defined genre. The extent of continual change in Gothic denotation is such that it is now approaching the status of an inter-genre inter-semiotic category. This is even more the case with Irish literature. Not only because a remarkable number of Gothic writers are Irish, but also, and more significantly, because Ireland has provided an extremely fruitful cultural background for the particular narrative forms and devices that are usually associated with the Gothic.

"'The Politics of Mourning' in Long Eighteenth-Century Literature" (ASECS: 3/20/14-3/22/14)

Misty Krueger / University of Maine at Farmington

This panel, the title of which is inspired by David L. Eng and David Kazanjian's collection, _Loss: The Politics of Mourning_, seeks papers that address mourning not only as a sign of personal loss, but also as a site of political power. This panel aims to address the intersection between commemorations of the dead and political expression. For instance, papers might address the ways in which acts of mourning indicate recovery and produce narrative spaces, such as spiritual autobiographies, martyrologies, tragedies, and elegies. Papers might handle the distinction between mourning as alienation and that of community building or national memorializing. The panel solicits papers on a variety of genres as well as authors from the long eighteenth century.

Kzoo 2014- "I just don't want to die without a few scars": Medieval Fight Clubs, Masculine Identity, and Public (Dis)order II

updated: 
Wednesday, July 24, 2013 - 10:36am
Center for Medieval Studies at Fordham University

Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club dramatizes group combat as a means for creating and performing masculine identity. Though composed hundreds of years after the last medieval tournament, Palahniuk's 1996 novel parallels a phenomenon similar to that governing conduct in medieval martial games. This session builds on the work of scholars like Juliet Barker, Juliet Vale, and Richard Kaeuper, who have suggested the disruptive potential for such games even as they underscore their centrality to knightly identity, to extend analysis of medieval martial conduct to include the topic of masculine identity: how does an identity predicated by violence conflict with or bleed into the public sphere?

[UPDATE] PROGRAMME ONLINE: Anti-Communism: Culture, Literature, Propaganda (28 August 2013, London)

updated: 
Wednesday, July 24, 2013 - 8:04am
Dr Benjamin Kohlmann (Columbia University/Freiburg University) and Dr Matthew Taunton (University of East Anglia)

Some two decades after the fall of the Soviet Union, this symposium will explore the complex literary and cultural legacies of one of the twentieth century's most influential and under-theorised political philosophies. Anti-communism had a shaping influence on the development of twentieth-century Western liberalism and social democracy as well as providing intellectual justifications for McCarthyism and the jingoism of the Cold War Right. It was a key element of Nazism, but also of twentieth-century anarchism. Its relation to literary and artistic culture was equally complicated.

9th Global Conference
Pluralism, Inclusion and Citizenship

Friday 14th March – Sunday 16th March 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations:

"Pluralism" allows for the diffusion of power rather than the concentration; in this sense, there is a continuous interaction between power and pluralism. Pluralism means diversity, and the more diverse voices there are, the less concentrated power is.
