The Interdisciplinary Humanities Center welcomes paper proposals for "The Humanities, the Neurosciences and the Brain," an interdisciplinary conference exploring the multiple accords, and discords, that characterize humanistic and neuroscientific approaches to the study of the brain. Gabrielle Starr, author of Feeling Beauty: The Neuroscience of Aesthetic Experience, will give the keynote address. We invite papers that explore creative framings of neuroscientific inquiry through humanistic perspectives, as well as artistic explorations of inner states and mental landscapes. We also welcome presentations that raise ethical, philosophical and social questions about neuroscientific knowledge of the brain and its functioning.

CFP: Special Issue of The CLR James Journal on the work of René Ménil (Abstracts due March 1 2016)

The CLR James Journal

This special issue of The CLR James Journal seeks papers that situate the work of Martinican philosopher and critic René Ménil within the wider fields of Caribbean intellectual, political, and literary history. Ménil is perhaps best known for co-founding the journals Légitime défense (1932) and Tropiques (1941-45) alongside other Martinican intellectuals such as Etienne Léro and Aimé and Suzanne Césaire. These early publications famously dealt with Surrealist anticolonial aesthetics as well as Afro-Caribbean folklore and literature, yet Ménil's body of writing both reflects and expands on this constellation of themes.

Galway, Aug. 22-26, 2016 "20th and 21st century British Literature and medical discourse"

updated: 
Monday, December 14, 2015 - 11:30am
Nicolas Pierre BOILEAU Aix-Marseille University

In her 1930 essay 'On Being Ill' Woolf noted how "strange" it was "that illness ha[d] not taken its place with love and battle and jealousy among the prime themes of literature." Does Woolf's comment still hold? A number of scholars have recently explored the symbolic value of illness in literature but how far can or should literature go beyond metaphor in representing the experience of illness? How far does Rita Charon's concept of 'narrative medicine' capture the distinctiveness of literature as an alternative to medical discourse? We invite papers on the interconnections between literature and medical discourse in 20th and 21st century British literature.
