CALL FOR PAPERS

The British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992 — the oldest and longest-running annual meeting of its kind in the United States — will hold its first virtual conference, and calls for presentations situated in colonial and postcolonial histories, literatures, creative and performing arts, politics, economics, and all other aspects of the countries formerly colonized by Britain and other European powers.

In the 31 years of this conference, there has perhaps never been a more urgent time to address the fundamental issues of postcolonial studies: justice, injustice, the imposition of power, and the mechanisms of control.

In cosmogonical texts like the Navajo Myth, the search for an ecology of inter-species relations is threatened by the meeting of the horizons of the sky and the earth which unhinges the stable cosmos. In narratives of climate dystopias like Bruno Arpaia's Something Out There (2016) and ecological parables like Wu Ming-Yi's The Man with Compound Eyes (2011), the threats of expulsions from habitable places and the severing of human relationships are explored within apocalyptic frameworks of planetary harm.

As early as the 1920’s, Robert Musil remarked on the enormous effort it takes to stand still in a world that demands constant motion. Reflecting on the zooming street he sees through his window,the protagonist of Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften comments:

“Könnte man die Sprünge der Aufmerksamkeit messen, die Leistungen der Augenmuskeln, die Pendelbewegungen der Seele und alle die Anstrengungen, die ein Mensch vollbringen muss, um sich im Fluß einer Straße aufrecht zu halten, es käme vermutlich… eine Größe heraus, mit der verglichen die Kraft, die Atlas braucht, um die Welt zu stemmen.”

Childhood is a crucial stage in the formation of personality, value orientations, self-image and ideas about the world. However, the subject of childhood has become the target of research relatively recently. A wide range of problems and an interdisciplinary approach to this phenomenon have extended the boundaries of the academic and professional research interests. Nowadays, the study of children and childhood is an integral part of the humanities and social sciences. We invite psychologists, educators, sociologists, anthropologists, cultural and literary scholars, historians, art experts, lawyers, linguists and specialists in other fields to participate in the conference.

Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:

International Conference "Faces of War"

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, December 15, 2021

War has been a constant aspect of human eras since ancient times. In fact, the idea of conflict as a means of achieving useful results has always been present in the history of evolution. Even if after the end of the Second World War, when a new peaceful approach towards dispute resolution has been promoted by the most powerful nations in the world, tensions have risen again in the last few decades, particularly in some territories of the world.
