[UPDATE] Missing, presumed dead: absent mothers in the cultural imagination, 11-12 June 2015

Friday, November 7, 2014 - 7:18am
Department of Language Studies, Umeå University & Umeå Centre for Gender Studies, Sweden

NB! New date
The dead or absent mother is a recurring feature in Western cultural productions, from Greek myths through folktales, Shakespeare and Dickens to contemporary literature such as Miriam Toew's A Complicated Kindness (2004), television, and films such as Finding Nemo (2003) and The Road (2009). The mother might be dead at the outset, or die during the narrative. Her death might be a disaster, propelling the child into danger; a blessing, saving the child from an abusive or inappropriate parent and making way for a more suitable guardian; or of no consequence.

Romanticism and the South-West

The English department at the University of Bristol invites submissions for a 1-day conference to be held on the 29th of June, 2015, on the subject of 'Romanticism and the South-West'.

The conference aims to explore the importance of the South-West for Romantic writers, with a particular emphasis on the following topics: 1) ecologically aware writing and protoenvironmental thought; 2) the role of the South-West in an era of scientific development and discovery; 3) the South-West as a centre for reform movements and radical politics, as well as a region connected to slavery and imperialism; and 4) Romantic afterlives in the South-West.

About the Adaptation Essay Prize

The Adaptation Essay Prize is a new innovation from the journal, launched in 2011 to encourage the best new scholarship in the field. While the journal publishes many articles which focus on the relationship between literature and film, the Editors are particularly keen to publish work which challenges the primacy of that relationship: this might include essays on computer games, opera, popular music, animation, genre fiction or work with a wider theoretical sweep.

The Adaptation Prize

The winner's prize will consist of:
