Women in World(-)Literature Conference
22nd June 2022
Abstract Deadline: 30th JANUARY 2022

CfP: https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/arts/english/research/conferences/womeninworldliterature/

Co-organised by IAS Associate Fellows Dr Roxanne Douglas and Dr Fiona Farnsworth

Please note that this is a trans-inclusive event.
“A single but radically uneven world-system; a singular modernity, combined and uneven; and a literature that variously registers this combined unevenness in both its form and its content to reveal itself as, properly speaking, world-literature…”
Warwick Research Collective (WReC), Combined and Uneven Development (2015)
In 2015 Warwick Research Collective (WReC) published Combined and Uneven Development: A New Theory of World-Literature. It broke new ground in its invocation of Wallerstein’s world-systems theory alongside the Trotskyist formulation of “combined and uneven development”; and in its thinking through of the cultural and aesthetic implications of a literature of the capitalist world-system. This, they dubbed “world-literature”.
Our question is this: in “a singular modernity, combined and uneven”, what is specific about women’s experiences; and how are these specificities registered in world(-)literature?
This ‘Women in World(-)Literature’ conference held at the University of Warwick, the home of the WReC, is inspired by and in conversation with their work alongside continuing and emergent research in the field of world literary studies. We invite you to join us in thinking about the gendered dynamics of power in the patriarchal capitalist world-system.
If world(-)literature is a way of thinking about a singular but unequal modernity – a system of cores and peripheries on multiple scales, from the family to the geopolitical stage – then what are the gendered consequences of this, for art and/or analysis? How are women situated in and accounted for within such a system? How do women’s material conditions and experiences – increasingly global in scope – shape their literary and cultural production on the levels of form, narrative, and genre? And what are the (re)generative possibilities of such study for us as we look towards the future?

You are invited on a virtual “skin safari.” It’s your skin but as you’ve never seen it before! 🔬🦠⁠

A workshop convened by IAS Associate Fellow Dr Freya Verlander with speakers Dermatologist Dr Simon Tso and Artist Mellissa Fisher. ⁠

Monday 14th June 14:00 – 15:30 GMT⁠

Places are limited. Register your interest here: https://warwick.ac.uk/skinsafari

This medical humanities workshop draws dermatology and the arts into productive conversation. It encourages participants to think about the skin – the body’s largest organ –and their own skin-based narratives. It aims to transform the way in which participants see, understand, think through, experience, and even represent, their skin. W.H. Auden’s poem “A New Year Greeting” (inspired by microbiologist Mary J. Marples’ article “Life on the Human Skin”) illustrates one way in which this workshop will encourage participants to re-think the skin and their relationship to it. Auden’s poem imaginatively worlds the skin – with imagery of natural landscapes and disasters – and addresses its flora, fauna, and microclimates. ⁠

For creatures your size I offer⁠
a free choice of habitat,⁠
so settle yourselves in the zone⁠
that suits you best, in the pools⁠
of my pores or the tropical⁠
forests of arm-pit and crotch,⁠
in the deserts of my fore-arms,⁠
or the cool woods of my scalp. ⁠

Build colonies: I will supply⁠
adequate warmth and moisture,⁠
the sebum and lipids you need,⁠
on condition you never⁠
do me annoy with your presence,⁠
but behave as good guests should,⁠
not rioting into acne⁠
or athlete's-foot or a boil.” (Auden 1969)⁠

Congratulations to Dr Ioana Vrăbiescu, IAS WIRL-COFUND Fellow at Warwick Law School , on the publication of her book 'Deporting Europeans: The Racialized Mobility of Romanians in France' this April.⁠

https://rowman.com/ISBN/9781498587815/Deporting-Europeans-The-Racialized-Mobility-of-Romanians-in-France

In 'Deporting Europeans', Dr Vrăbiescu examines how states within the European Union (EU) collaborate in the policing and deportation of EU citizens within EU territory. Vrăbiescu argues that the deportation of EU citizens reifies existing inequalities between central states, like France, and peripheral states, like Romania. By highlighting the massive deportation of Romanians from France, Vrăbiescu showcases these inequalities and the intricacies of EU geopolitics.
