The Routledge Companion to Literature and Food

Tuesday, January 19, 2016 - 4:38pm
Dr Lorna Piatti-Farnell and Prof. Donna Lee Brien

This Companion will cover the relationship between food and literature in the broadest sense. In recent years, food studies has developed into a solid and distinctly academic field of studies; the relationship between representational structures –such as literature – and the uses of food metaphors that these make has gained significant interest from the academic community, in interdisciplinary and transnational contexts. 'Literary food studies' can be viewed as a new and emerging field of enquiry, which re-evaluates, rethinks and (re-)discovers the importance of food and eating in understanding the ways we live and communicate.

I'm putting together a panel on Travel Writing and Periodical Press for this year's British Association
of Victorian Studies (BAVS) Conference, "Consuming the Victorians" (http://bavs2016.co.uk/).

The panel, thus far, looks at women's serial periodical travel writing. My paper will focus on the travel writing of Frances Minto Elliot (née Dickinson) in The New Monthly Magazine, while the second panellist, Teja Pusapati (University of Oxford), will discuss Harriet Martineau's travel reportage on Ireland. However, we invite proposals on any aspect of travel and the Victorian periodical.

Spooks, Spies and Intelligence Communities: Narrative, Film and Culture

Tuesday, January 19, 2016 - 12:07pm
Brunel Centre for Contemporary Writing , University of Brunel

In the post-1945 Cold War, in the post-millennial 9/11 period with Daesh-influenced ideological cultural clashes, the concept of undercover espionage and the spy has returned center-stage if in a different set of cultural markers. During the post 1945 era we had Checkpoint Charlie, moles, counter-intelligence and now one is faced with a vocabulary consisting of betrayers, Western-sponsored agents who are beheaded in the Middle East, Ukrainian counter-intelligence agents who are betrayed on both sides. How do social, filmic and literary narratives deal with such broad paradigms? What is the aesthetic of espionage and counter-espionage? Historically such issues have a long resonance, stretching back to at least the reign of the first Elizabeth in England.

Sustainability and Relevance: The Independent Library in 2016

Tuesday, January 19, 2016 - 10:35am
Association of Independent Libraries

Independent libraries occupy a unique place in the world's cultural life. Rather than seeing independent libraries as niche or elitist, the Financial Times described the UK's independent libraries as 'havens of books, conversation and cultural events with histories stretching back centuries.' The role and function of the independent library is a little-explored area, but growing numbers of scholars and researchers are joining the public in working in and around these institutions. As a space, the independent library generates lively debate around literacy, the role of the state, local and national identity, and cultural value.
