From the transient street art of Banksy and Pablo Delgado to the exhibitions of Doreen Fletcher and Gilbert and George; from the novels of Charles Dickens and Monica Ali to televisual series produced by the BBC and ITV; and from early eighteenth-century churches designed by Nicholas Hawksmoor to twenty-first century skyscrapers conceived by Norman Foster, the East End is an iconic area of London.

Impossible Pastimes: Playing With, In, and Through the Middle Ages
35th International Conference on Medievalism
Old Dominion University
Norfolk, VA, November 12-14, 2020
This panel is dedicated to discussing Eastern/Russian Orthodox traditions, morality, culture, hagiography, iconography, mysticism, practices, monasticism, and beliefs as they pertain to (or appear within) Russian and Slavic literature. Discussions of religious influence are critical to the study of many of the greatest Russian authors and poets--Dostoevsky and Tolstoy amongst many others. Still, little scholarship has explored how both Dostoevsky and Tolstoy had extraordinarily different views of the Orthodox faith and of Christianity in general, and how this might have influenced their existential perspectives of life and death, meaning and purpose, as well as their works.
