Place and Emplacement

21st International Colloquium of American Studies
(Biannual Conference of the Czech and Slovak Association for American Studies):

The conference is organized by Palacký University Olomouc in cooperation with The Czech and Slovak Association for American Studies, and Embassy of the United States in Prague.

TOPICS AND ISSUES:

Spazi tra le nuvole. Lo spazio nel fumetto

Lo spazio, e in particolare lo spazio urbano, costituisce un elemento narrativovisuale caratterizzante della letteratura a fumetti sin dalla sua nascita. Per lungo tempo, gli autori di fumetti hanno privilegiato un’ambientazione cittadina per le loro opere, e si sono rivolti implicitamente a un pubblico che, per stile di vita e modalità di consumo del fumetto in quanto ‘prodotto’ dell’industria culturale, non poteva che essere pienamente urbanizzato.

The Politics of Space and the Humanities

The Department of American Literature of the School of English at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in collaboration with the Hellenic Association for American Studies (HELAAS), invite scholars to submit proposals for the international conference ―The Politics of Space and the Humanities‖ to be held in Thessaloniki.

GFF 2017: Realities and World Building

 

The creation and experience of “new” worlds is a central appeal of the fantastic. From Middle Earth to variations of the Final Frontier, the fantastic provides a seemingly infinite number of fantastic “worlds” and world concepts. It develops and varies social and cultural systems, ideologies, biological and climatic conditions, cosmologies and different time periods. Its potential and self-conception between the possible and the impossible offer perspectives to nearly every field of research.
