Documenting the Author: Examining the Role of and Impact of Author-Based Documentaries

This past April, the highly anticipated documentary, Hemingway (2021), premiered on PBS, coupled with watch parties and much discussion of reactions to the film.  The reception of the documentary spurred debate, provided new perspectives of Hemingway through visual footage and images, and perhaps most importantly, presented the author’s life and work to a public audience, inviting both casual and dedicated readers to watch and learn.

Teaching and learning are always a series of voyages and returns.

Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, swaths of books about the pivot to online learning have emerged, many focused on practical classroom instruction as a much-needed kind of spiritual manna in a time comprised of uncertainty and abrupt shifts in normative praxes. These contributions capture a historical watershed moment where the voyage is key (e.g., Chan, Bista, and Allen, 2021; Jansen and Farmer-Phillips, 2021; Lemov, 2020; Reimers et al., 2020; Grays-Wiley, 2020).

International Conference "The Uncanny in Language, Literature and Culture"

London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, April 30, 2022

*Selected papers will be published in a post-conference volume with ISBN.

The twentieth-century literature and culture tended to explore and to celebrate subjectivity. But this tendency did not mean the turn to the self, but beyond the self, or as Charles Taylor puts it, “to a fragmentation of experience which calls our ordinary notions of identity into question”. 

International Conference "Narratives of Temporality: Continuities, Discontinuities, Ruptures"

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 31, 2022

*Selected papers will be published in a post-conference volume with ISBN.

This conference will provide a deeper look into the dynamic and complex relation between construction, codes, language, expression, on one side and the crisis of representations, traumas, discontinuities and tensions in discourses, on the other. This will be conducted according to three research areas:

  1. The anachronism

  2. Narratives and discourse

International Conference “From Stabat Mater to Mater Movens: Analysing Discourses on Motherhood”

London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 15, 2022

*Selected papers will be published in a post-conference volume with ISBN.

This conference aims at exploring motherhood and its diverse cultural representations, while interrogating the ways in which such representations impact on individual and collective experiences of motherhood. Thus, we attempt at examining motherhood both as a personal experience and as an institution, as well as observing the nuances involved in the interaction between both.

Online Workshop "The Decaying Female Body in Horror Cinema"

updated: 
Wednesday, January 5, 2022 - 11:17am
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 1, 2022

The horror genre in film follows from the literary tradition established by Edgar Allan Poe, Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley, eliciting physiological and psychological reactions through suspense, gore, the macabre and the supernatural. Horror films transfix and terrify audiences in equal measure, unfailingly achieving suspension of disbelief because fear is a universal emotion. The position occupied by female characters in horror cinema is often ambivalent, ranging from victims of violence to perpetrators of dread. Relying in part on Julia Kristeva's theory of abjection, we will investigate representations of decaying female bodies in cinema. Kristeva defines horror as a breakdown in meaning caused by the loss of boundaries between self and other.

Critical Orwell

The theme of Critical Orwell: an online conference (12-14 April 2022) is how Orwell is critical and in crisis: how Orwell’s views and work matter; how Orwell operated as a judge and fault-finder, and occasionally as a pessimist; and how Orwell is a figure whose prejudices raise important questions about his canonical status in Anglo-American culture and beyond. How and why is Orwell critical now?

Call for papers

Critical Orwell invites proposals for 15-minute scholarly presentations that consider any aspect of Orwell’s life and work in relation to the conference theme: crisis; criticism; criticality.

In “Tarhands: A Messy Manifesto,” Métis scholar Warren Cariou rewrites William Carlos Williams’ poem “This Is Just to Say” into a time capsule to be opened in a hundred years:

 

This is just to say

We’ve burned up all the oil

and poisoned the air

you were probably hoping to breathe.

Forgive us.

It was delicious

the way it burned

so bright and

so fast.
