The context of the migration crisis, which is itself symptomatic of a generalized, deep and systemic crisis climate and environmental breakdown, demographic challenge, representative democracy reconsidered, return of extreme rights, etc. What are these other ways that utopia traces to denounce and overcome discursive, media and state strategies aimed at making invisible, spoiling or stigmatising migrants, and thus strengthening borders?
What alternatives to current border experiences can be explored through fiction?

In what forms do they take place in the literary text? Which borders are targeted, those of the dream continent or the left one? How do these imaginative practices shed light on, or challenge, the relationship of contemporary societies to human mobility, to hospitality? The intellectual approach they encourage resides in an empirical observation of society coupled with an unbridled literary imagination Wright Yet literature specialists have not considered so far the notions of utopia and borders simultaneously, when both coexist in literary works novels, essays, poetry, etc.
This Symposium plans to address them jointly, inviting the literary scientific field to a discussion held to date mainly by the Social Sciences. Dialogue between literary studies and other disciplines in the Humanities and Social Sciences is therefore strongly encouraged in order to adequately address an issue whose study can contribute to rethinking the definitions of utopia, and in particular utopia as a literary genre, and to enriching migration studies.
These reflections are only indicative. For a better understanding of border utopias, any communication on migration experiences other than those in the Mediterranean are encouraged and will lead to comparative discussions. Speakers will have to beat the costs of travel and accommodation. Following the conference, a publication is planned. Bernardie-Tahir et S. Bigo D. Bloch E. Wuilmart, Paris, Gallimard, Calabrese L.

Continents Noirs, Critics of performing arts in Africa and its diaspora have engaged with a wide range of topics in their writing, but there is limited critical engagement with ageing, old age, and disability. It is this dearth of critical discourses and debates on old age in African literary and theatre studies that has inspired the theme of the annual African Theatre Association Conference.
The conference invites scholars, practitioners and activists of performance to focus their contributions on three areas which are mutually exclusive, yet incredibly inclusive, namely: ageing, old age—age able ism embodied—and disability. AfTA aims to create a platform on which these contributions will reflect critically on the role, representation, status and significance of elderly people in performing arts theatre, oral performance, community theatre, drama, spoken word, epics, films, festivals, dance, music etc… that are connected to Africa and its diaspora.
Further, the conference aims to engage critical discussions based on varied understandings, perceptions and definitions of old age, ageing and disability, as well as whether there should be any intersection between these categories in African performances, film and festivals. Employing old age, ageing and disability as conceptual frameworks, the conference will provoke debates on how performances articulate these subjects at critical moments of artistic production and performance.
The conference seeks to ask questions including: what are the nuances that either shadow or empower the production of performance based on ageing, old age and disability? What are the cultural and transcultural underpinnings espoused when subjects related to ageing, old age and disability are evoked in the performance culture? How do class, sexuality, gender, ethnicity and nationality affect our understanding of these classifications in the context of performance, film and festival? What are the theoretical and methodological conceptualisations that one might draw from to provoke scholarly debates related to ageing, old age and disability in performance, film and festival?

Researchers, scholars, performing artists and theatre activists are invited to submit an abstract of words and words biography to: conferences africantheatreassociation. The Caribbean is the site of an emerging film culture that has been generating interest around the world. Something warmer — even when faced by very harsh realities. The emergence of this new cinema can be attributed to a number of factors: greatly increased access to digital technologies, the proliferation of film schools and programmes, the founding and growth of an increasing number of film festivals across the region, and the energy and collective organisation of new generations of filmmakers.
This complex cinematic landscape calls for nuanced mapping, and has not yet been sufficiently addressed in critical or theoretical work. Participants will look for commonalities shared by films from the region and its diasporas as well as differences that set films, filmmakers, film traditions, and film industry landscapes apart from each other.
The goal of these conversations is to establish connections, develop critical perspectives, and share strategies that will contribute to the continued development of Caribbean cinemas. As the meeting will be held in the Dominican Republic, special emphasis will be placed on the vibrant cinema of this country, which has grown enormously in recent years. Since the implementation of a new film law in , the Dominican Republic has seen its annual homegrown film production increase by five times or more, thanks to greater foreign and domestic investment in filmmaking and filmmakers.
In more recent years, this ongoing commitment to the new industry has started to bear fruit in the form of international accolades, as well as a sustained string of local box office hits. The meeting will feature roundtable discussions with local filmmakers, critics, and other members of the Dominican film industry.

We invite proposals from scholars working on any aspect of contemporary Caribbean cinema, and on any linguistic region. Papers might address questions that include, but are not limited to, the following:. What recent developments in funding, legal, and industrial infrastructures, in local, regional, international distribution and reception trends are shaping Caribbean cinema, and how? What formal, aesthetic, or thematic innovations are present in Caribbean cinema, either in relation to its earlier manifestations, or in comparison with other world cinemas?
Despite many theological and cultural similarities and frequent social proximity between Jews and Muslims, Jewish-Muslim relations in both contemporary societies and in diverse historical and geographic settings are often depicted in polarized binary terms. This conference aims to understand interactions and relations between Jews and Muslims in a wide variety of contexts beyond this binary. Paper proposals should include abstracts of words and a speaker biography of no more than words.

Speakers are allocated 20 minutes to present and 10 minutes for questions and discussion. This two-day conference aims to recover and put across the voices of women in France, Italy and across Europe who defied the existing order and the rules of society. Beyond the conceptualisation and idealisation of the female sex, however, a close investigation of everyday realities questions this long-standing, stereotyped notion of women, uncovering a different scenario, including women who did not passively accept their status.
In a static, hierarchical, male-dominated society, some of these women reacted against the constraints imposed upon them and challenged their family, their society, their worlds. The organisers are grateful to the Cassal Trust, University of London, and Il Circolo for their sponsorship of this event. Travel literature was at that time far from mainstream as an area of academic research, but the intervening two decades have witnessed a major shift in attitudes towards the genre, with the emergence of dedicated journals, scholarly associations and other academic apparatus associated with the building of a new field.
