Call for papers

The Department of English and American Studies at Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” invites scholars to submit proposals for the international conference Traditions and Transitions – to be held in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The conference is dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the Department of English and American Studies at Sofia University and the 130th  anniversary of Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”. People celebrate anniversaries in order to commemorate what has been achieved so far and to envision what should be achieved in the future. The event aims to look back at a distinguished past, and ahead to a challenging future.

The conference seeks to bring together young and established scholars, and also professors emeriti from academic institutions in Bulgaria and abroad, giving them a venue to debate and exchange views on traditions and transitions in the research in and the teaching of English-language-related disciplines.

The field of English and American Studies is in transition, as it seeks new approaches, and re-examines older ones, in order to address the multiple issues facing the development of  English-language related disciplines required for participation in today’s global community. The organizers of this conference encourage papers using a variety of  interdisciplinary approaches to developments in the field and a wide range of analytical perspectives (historical, artistic, literary, political, aesthetic, ethical, linguistic, sociolinguistic, cognitive etc.).

We invite individual abstracts and panel proposals in an array of topics, discussing traditions and transitions in any of the areas below:

  • The study of literatures written in the English language (including literatures from the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, India, Pakistan, South Africa and the Middle East,  among other areas);
  • The study of English linguistics (including English phonetics, phonology, syntax, morphology, semantics, pragmatics, historical linguistics, sociolinguistics, text linguistics, discourse analysis, corpus linguistics and stylistics);
  • The study of Anglophone cultures and societies with a special focus on the complexity and hybridity of cultural interaction, transnationalism and transculturalism; the movement between places, identities and cultures;
  • Translation studies;
  • Мedia studies, transmedia.

 

Abstracts for twenty-minute presentations and panel proposals should be submitted by 1 March, 2018.

  • Name:
  • Affiliation:

International conference “Visual Worlds: The Aesthetics and Politics of Affect”

The conference VISUAL WORLDS: THE AESTHETICS AND POLITICS OF AFFECT will bring together international scholars from diverse fields of the humanities such as literary studies, cultural studies, film studies, material culture studies, and social science to discuss interdisciplinary and cross-cultural approaches to visually immersive social and cultural environments (media, urban settings, virtual reality, performance, and digital culture).

Discussions will address the challenges related to new forms of visuality in everyday life, social, academic and urban environments, from a critical positioning informed by affect theory. Latest trends raise serious questions: How has the nature of visual experience changed, turning spectatorship into a new sensory experience that exceeds the optical? How far can the simulative drive go? Why is contemporary society investing so much money and effort to produce hyper-images which are impossible to distinguish from actual reality? How do people watch websites, TV series, telenovelas, commercials, video games?

The conference aims at setting up an international network of scholars working on various aspects of visual culture to stimulate state-of-the art research, to facilitate meaningful knowledge exchange among partners and transnational cooperation in the field of higher education, and work on future joint project VIEW (Visual Innovative Educational Worlds).

3rd June, Saturday beginning at 9.00 AULA, then rm. 243 Rectorate Bldg
4th June, Sunday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. rm. 29, Faculty of Journalism Bldg

“Top-down Multiculturalism versus Multiculturalism from Below”

by Sneja Gunew, Professor Emerita
University of British Columbia,
Vancouver, B.C. Canada

Sneja Gunew (FRSC) B.A. (Melbourne), M.A. (Toronto), Ph.D. (Newcastle, NSW) has taught in England, Australia and Canada. She has published widely on multicultural, postcolonial and feminist critical theory and is Professor Emerita of English and Women’s and Gender Studies at the University of British Columbia, Canada. She was Director of the Centre for Research in Women’s and Gender Studies (2002-7) and North American editor of Feminist Theory (Sage) 2006-10. She was Associate Principal of the College for Interdisciplinary Studies, UBC, 2008-11.

She has edited and co-edited four anthologies of Australian women’s and multicultural writings: Feminist Knowledge: Critique and Construct and A Reader in Feminist Knowledge (Routledge 1990-91). In Australia, she compiled (with others) A Bibliography of Australian Multicultural Writers (the first such compilation in Australia) and co-edited Striking Chords: Multicultural Literary Interpretations (1992), the first collection of critical essay to deal with ethnic minority writings in the Australian context. She set up the first library collection of ethnic minority writings in Australia. Continuing her focus on cultural difference, Gunew edited (with Anna Yeatman) Feminism and the Politics of Difference(1993) and (with Fazal Rizvi) Arts for a Multicultural Australia: Issues and Strategies (1994).

Her books include Framing Marginality: Multicultural Literary Studies (1994) and Haunted Nations: The Colonial Dimensions of Multiculturalisms (Routledge 2004). Based in Canada since 1993, her current work is on comparative multiculturalisms and diasporic literatures and their intersections with national and global cultural formations. Her most recent book is titled: Post-Multicultural Writers as Neo-Cosmopolitan Mediators. http://faculty.arts.ubc.ca/sgunew/
