As fans of the genre can attest, popular science writing belies the notion of “science” and “literature” as separate domains.  Bestselling science writers borrow freely from the techniques of fiction writers to craft compelling narratives, memorable examples, and evocative re-presentations of technical information.  Of course, scholars have long recognized the literariness of science writing: as pioneering work by Gillian Beer, George Levine, Devin Griffiths, Donna Haraway, and others attests, it is difficult to overestimate the historical traffic between science and literature.  Since the early modern era (if not earlier), writers and scientists have routinely traded metaphors, images, and conceptual frameworks.

deadline for submissions:

Papers are sought from any period, any cultural form/genre, and from any critical perspective that investigate the way that science and culture have influenced, informed, and challenged one another, either within society more broadly or even within higher education. Projects from the medical humanities, environmental humanities, and/or digital humanities are relevant to this panel, as are other interdisciplinary fields at the intersections of science and the humanities. We are looking for papers that consider science and culture as lived human experiences, rather than speculative science fiction per se.

The post-socialist reality in East Europe profoundly changed the rural and urban settlements. Abandoned factories, vacant villages, unfinished housing projects, decline and abandonment are some common threads that appear in post-socialist rural and urban landscapes. De-industrialisation and the post-1990s capitalist rules left small towns and villages empty and decayed. In the former socialist countries of Africa, Latin America, and south-east Asia rural and urban decline has also been linked with the history of colonial expansion, the destruction of nature, and racial violence. While some communities have embraced spatial regeneration trends, others remain ruined, marginalised, and declined.

“Human and Non-Human Animals in 19th century English Literature.”

According to John Berger in his famous essay, “Why Look at Animals?” (1977), there was a fundamental shift in the ways in which Europeans imagined and interacted with non-human animals (domesticated and wild) in the 19th century. The nature of this shift, Berger argues, was a symptomatic consequence of the social, cultural, and demographic transformations brought about by industrialization, urbanization, and capitalism.
