Shifting landscapes of the medieval world

Shifting landscapes of the medieval world

Description

From maps to chronicles, from sagas and songs to emerging cities, landscape plays an active part in shaping the medieval world. Much more than a backdrop to narrative, much more than a passive object of knowledge, much more than patches of space to be allocated and appropriated, landscape is a vital force in narrative, power, and knowledge.

For this conference, which follows the seminar series of the same name, we invite contributions from researchers at all career stages working on medieval culture in any language.

Comics and the Global South

Comics and the Global South

Description

Comics and the Global South will be a two-day conference devoted to exploring the intersections of comics studies and decolonial theory. With an emphasis on the comics form, its distribution, and its circulation, this conference is interested in probing the medium’s potentialities for producing decolonised knowledge and carrying out inter/trans-medial dialogues of South-South solidarity.

The conference attempts to question and challenge the idea that the advent of a cross-cultural comics scholarship requires Europeans to ‘cross borders’. Instead, we propose to reflect on how those ‘borders’ have already been crossed during a long colonial history. We suggest, further, that the international dimension of comics ought to be placed within a larger discussion ‘from the south’, that is, by taking into account the processes of hegemonic domination lived in postcolonial regions.                                                                                   

The full programme is available here.
