Please consider submitting an abstract for the "Queer Italy" panel, held at the 2018 NeMLA conference in Pittsburgh, PA. This panel seeks to integrate the fields of Queer Studies and Italian Studies, and welcomes presentations on queer representation in Italian literature and film, queer readings of Italian works, queer Italian authors/artists and their experience, cultural movements, etc. The theme of the conference (to be held April 12-15) is "Global Spaces, Local Landscapes, and Imagined Worlds," so papers examining queer identity in the Italian landscape, public spaces, and fictional worlds are of particular interest. However, any and all presentations integrating Queer Studies and Italian Studies are welcomed and encouraged.

Gothic Animals: Uncanny Otherness and the Animal With-Out

'The boundary between the animal and the human has long been unstable, especially since the Victorian period. Where the boundary is drawn between human and animal is itself an expression of political power and dominance, and the ‘animal’ can at once express the deepest fears and greatest aspirations of a society' (Victorian Animal Dreams, 4).

'The animal, like the ghost or good or evil spirit with which it is often associated, has been a manifestation of the uncanny' (Timothy Clark, 185).

Form, Text, and the Medieval Manuscript Roll (Kalamazoo 2018)

Digital Editing and the Medieval Manuscript Roll & Fragment
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 15, 2017

The medieval manuscript roll was remarkably versatile. Playing host to a variety of genres, the roll format was an omnipresent feature of the textual landscape throughout the Middle Ages. Though its popularity is often attributed to its portability or economical construction, scholars have also noted relationships between its form and the genres it contains. For example, the inverted images of Exultet rolls were visible to onlookers as the texts were read, while the continuous length of a roll could emphasise the continuous history of a chronicle or genealogy. At the same time, however, rolls contain many texts not obviously connected to their format: poetry, recipes, devotional texts, charms, poetry, and even chiromancy.

CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT PRECARITY, POPULISM AND POST-TRUTH POLITICS

updated: 
Saturday, August 5, 2017 - 5:47am
University of Córdoba, Spain
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This three-day event—a two-day conference followed by a workshop on the third day—aims to interrogate the multiple and overlapping global processes underlying three emergent relational fields or modes of enquiry: precarity, populism and post-truth politics. As a network, we are committed to the pursuit of arguments and ideas that will foster articulation of research questions and positions and the construction of one or more interlinked, interdisciplinary projects. We seek to identify the interconnections between precarity, populism and post-truth politics in ways that will enable the development of cross-cutting thematic and theoretical approaches to these manifestations of global inequality, injustice and tension.
