31/05/18 – CFP “Relational Forms 4 – Literature and the Arts since the 1960s: Protest, Identity and the Imagination”

1968 is a momentous year in the global socio-political memory: it has come to be seen as the culmination and epitome of a series of processes involving protest, and the affirmation of previously silent or subaltern causes. Such processes and causes were predicated on challenges to established powers and mindsets, and hence on demands for change, that have had rich consequences in literature and the arts.

Call for proposals – Rewinding Global America: Nationalism and Contested Power

Deadline: 13 May 2018

Nationalism has been a defining feature of American history, politics, and international relations. From the Declaration of Independence and the Four Freedoms of Franklin D. Roosevelt, through the “shining city upon a hill,” the “melting pot,” “affluent society,” and consumerism, the United States has created an exceptional, expansive, and open image of itself as the “global nation” founded on a set of seemingly universal principles.

The Taboo Conference series is an interdisciplinary conference aimed at bringing together scholars of various aspects of taboo in a variety of academic fields. The project was originated at the Department of Interpretation and Translation of the University of Bologna, Italy, where the first edition was held in 2012. The following editions were held every two years in Durham (UK) and Barcelona (Spain). For its fourth installment the conference returns to the hills of Romagna in the beautiful medieval village of Bertinoro. We hope you’ll be able to join us this year to discuss all the multifaceted ramifications of taboo and the media. Leggi tutto “15/03 – CFP: TaCo2018 Taboo and the Media”
