Ecology and life writing
Alfred Hornung and Zhao Baisheng, eds.
This volume examines the interrelations between ecological concerns and personal forms of writing in Europe, Asia, and America. It assembles contributions from an international conference of experts from four continents who provide new insights into the redefinition of the self in contact with nature in different parts of the world. Articles range from the American tradition of nature writing via the ecological traditions of Native Americans and ethnic communities to Asian attitudes of nature worship and the dangers to human and animal lives on planet earth. Beyond the familiar Anglo-American focus, these case studies, interpretations of auto/biographical texts and films begin to bridge the gap between Western and Eastern discourses and propose new approaches to the theoretical basis of ecocriticism and life writing.

3d IABA Europe Conference: Beyond the Subject. New Developments in Life Writing
31 October–3 November 2013, Ludwig Boltzmann Instute for the History and Theory of Biography, Vienna (Austria)
The conference would like to bridge the gap between historical forms of life writing, which have already undermined or questioned constructions of the cohesive subject, and the newest medial transformations in the genre of life writing. Alongside personal websites, blogs and social networks as new spaces in the autobiographical public sphere, increasingly the internet also offers a space for innovative forms of biographical representation. In so doing, virtual life writing goes beyond medial and narrative boundaries, in that it synthesizes image, sound and video, and develops new narrative possibilities in interaction with readers and users, that allow for pluralistic, fragmentary, non-linear conceptions of the subject beyond that of traditional conventions.
For many years theories of postmodernism and their critical engagement with the concept of the subject have also defined the field of life writing. Biographical and autobiographical writing was analysed from the perspective of deconstruction, post-colonialism and gender studies as a constructed performance, as an act of self-construction and construction by others in the context of various discursive settings. The aim of the conference is not to debate these theorems (that have, in any case, frequently been discussed over past decades) in extenso once more, but instead to focus on auto/biographical practices that consciously undermine the traditional Western concept of the subject and develop alternative models of life writing. At the same time the conference will offer a forum for both theoretical and practical approaches that go beyond postmodernism in their treatment of auto/biographical material.
The 3d IABA Europe biennial conference will be held 31 October-3 November 2013 in Vienna and hosted by the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for the History and Theory of Biography. Deadline for abstracts: 11 January 2013. Notification of acceptance: 11 February 2013. For Registration and abstract submission please visit: http://gtb.lbg.ac.at/de/IABA2013
Writing the Lives of the Poor
28-30 November 2013, German Historical Institute, London (UK)
The historiography of the dependent or marginal poor has long drawn on a range of writings - surveys, newspaper reporting, government enquiries, and occasionally biographies collected by the middling sorts - about this group. Formalized petitions from (or more usually on behalf of) the powerless to the powerful, seeking alms, appealing for justice or jostling for admission to various institutions, have also been an important mainstay of welfare studies.
In the last 15 years, however, it has become increasingly clear that the very poorest elements of European, Middle and Far Eastern society were rather more literate than has often been allowed. They wrote autobiographies, diaries, stories/fairy stories or poems, some published but many more still in manuscript form. Above all it has become clear that the poor wrote as individuals or a collective to assert their claims to welfare. In some places their words were mediated by scribes but it becomes increasingly clear that in others the ‘pauper narrative’ directly represents the word, thoughts, sentiments and strategies of the poor themselves.
Such documents – part of an expanding range of areas in which the poor of the eighteenth, nineteenth and early twentieth centuries were called upon to construct or rehearse their ‘story’ – represent a complex interplay of rhetoric, fact, claims-making and lies/silences/embellishments. Sensitively used, however, they provide a unique window onto the experience of poverty and the nature of the welfare systems and power structures with which the poor engaged.
This conference, organised jointly between the German Historical Institute, London and the University of Leicester Centre for Medical Humanities, will explore the question of how the poor between the seventeenth and twenty-first centuries sought to ‘write’ their lives.
Focussing on particular groups (for instance the sick poor), countries or periods, we will be particularly interested in issues such as the use of rhetoric and embellishment, interpreting silence in narratives, the origins of language, the concept of honesty, outcomes and the nature of power relationships within welfare systems.

Intimate Archives: Photography and Life-Writing
29 November 2013, University of Oxford (UK)
Intimate Archives is a one-day interdisciplinary conference that seeks to explore the intersection of photography and life-writing. Photography has come to play an increasingly self-conscious role in life narratives, raising questions about truth, fictionality, authenticity and the limits of referentiality. What role does photography have in the construction of life narratives? How are intimate and affective relations negotiated and represented in photographic life narratives? Furthermore, what is at stake when intimate records of familial and private lives are published or exhibited?

Before, Beside and After the Biographical Narrative
6-9 March 2014, Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg (Germany)
The Life History and Biography Network of the European Society for Research on the Education of Adults first met in Geneva in 1994 and has provided the basis for diverse and influential publications, as well as for major collaborative research projects and many other forms of collaboration. The network has explored in the last years‘ conferences areas of research and practice in life history and biography/autobiography/auto/biography that have been neglected perhaps (the body, wisdom) and those which are of growing interest: emotions, words, interdisciplinary research, agency and structure.
The field(s) of life history and biography research are very much characterised by schools of practice, by national boundaries. The convenors and the organizer of the 2014 conference recognize this and wish to explore the possibilities of crossing some of the boundaries of practice, some of the frontiers dividing country-specific cultures of research, crossing, too, some of the persistently obstinate linguistic boundaries/barriers that, we feel, impoverish the debate that is central to a vigorous field of research such as ours patently is.
Thus, the Magdeburg conference wishes to concentrate both on the contents and the results of our research, as well as on how we do our work. We would all agree that the narratives – in the widest sense of the term – that we elicit, collect, listen to, record, film, transcribe, analyse and communicate (and co-construct) are located at the very core of our theory and practice. All the more reason, we feel, to take this opportunity to turn our attention to what "goes in" to the biographical narratives in our research.
For this reason we have chosen the title "Before, Beside and After the Biographical Narrative" with the aim of opening up a discussion around the "before" and "after" of people's biographical processes, that is, turning our attention, besides to our more visible practices, as well to that which isn't protocolled, transcribed, described, or presented and yet which is in the stories, and is an intrinsic part of the narratives. In attending to different aspects of the biographical experience - voice, bodily expression, relationships, silences, signs, unconscious processes and so on - we can ask important questions about our perspectives, our methods, our writings, our discussions.
In our conference, we want to help create spaces for dialogue, demonstration, reflexivity and discovery. There will be a series of keynotes from internationally renowned colleagues, dialogues /round tables, alongside individual papers and symposia, focusing on our theme of before, beside and beyond the biographical narrative and the importance of this in researching learning lives.
Abstracts (max. 500 words) should be submitted by 30th September 2013 to the conference organiser at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The proposals for papers, symposia, workshops, posters will be blind reviewed by the Scientific Committee. Acceptance will be announced by 31st October 2013
Conference languages: English, French, German.
Letters and Letter Writing
18-20 March 2014, Prague (Czech Republic)
The letter has been one of the most important forms of communication over thousands of years across many cultures and continents. Whether personal, professional or an open statement of intent it can covey the most intimate messages or declare the most inflammatory of declarations. It can be delivered by hand, by postman, by pigeon, by bottle, by smartphone, by internet connection or even by space ship. It can be cherished, collected, published, censored, blogged, stolen, steamed open, torn up, buried, displayed. It can be written on paper, papyrus, skin, in the sand, in wax, on sweet wrappers and on computer screens. It can be written with quills, pens, keyboards, chalk and in ink, in blood, in lemon juice, in light, with love, with hate, with desperation, with pride, with humiliation and with satisfaction. Correspondingly, it can take seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks or even years to reach its destination, whether sent to someone in the next room, or via a time capsule to people 50 years in the future. A letter is not just the means to communicate to others, but a way in which we communicate who, what and where we are and the times that we live in, consequently, being as much about the interconnectedness of identity, place and culture through time as it is about the immediate connection to those around us.
This confernce on the forms, materials and methods used to connect to ourselves and to others in and through time invites abstracts on any historical period or geographical location.
300 word abstracts should be submitted by Friday 11th October 2013.If an abstract is accepted for the conference, a full draft paper should be submitted by Friday 17th January 2014.

Crises and ruptures in memory and narrative
23-26 April 2014, Oral History and Life Stories Network - European Social Science History Conference (ESSHC), Vienna (Austria)
The Oral History and Life Stories Network brings together oral historians and life story practitioners who use oral histories to explore memory, narrative and history. It has become the major regular international forum for European oral history and life story researchers.
The European Social Science History Conference has been held biannually since 1996 and the Oral History and Life Stories network has met at each conference since 1998. Oral History and Life Stories is currently one of the largest, friendliest and most popular networks of the European Social Science Conference.
We invite proposals for the Vienna ESSHC-conference on 23-26 April 2014 both for individual papers and for sessions. Sessions can have various formats: panels, round table discussions, presentations in other media followed by discussion.
We invite contributions discussing conceptual and methodological issues related to the representation of crises and ruptures (private, public, personal and/or political) in oral history with specific reference to memory and narrative. We welcome contributions from both oral historians and life story practitioners but with the focus on oral testimonies.
We are especially encouraging contributions addressing disrupted memories and silences. This might be with reference to place or to the relationship between the local and global and/or between individual and social memory. We would hope for analyses of positive as well as negative impacts of crises and ruptures.
We would welcome proposals addressing the following issues:
• Ruptures and Crises: Making sense of the past or rewriting history?
• Rupture, repressed memories and trauma
• Crises and positive changes in re/constructing identities
• Breaking with the past and reshaping memory
• Narratives and memories of globalization and resistance
• Transnational and national narratives of Europe
• (Re)presenting selves and others: multiculturalism, crises and memory
• ‘Composure’ and ‘discomposure’ in the construction of narratives
In addition we would also like to see presentations that:
· Explore methodological changes and challenges for working and researching with oral history in different disciplinary fields
· Address challenges facing the oral history method; including how attitudes to interviewing and being interviewed have changed; new ways of analyzing interviews; as well as approaches to archiving
· Compare written texts with oral sources in relation to the themes listed above
· Discuss the social function of oral history archives in relation to crises and historical disruption (including re-use of interviews produced by earlier projects)
· Explore emotions, sensory and embodied memories in relation to the themes above.
Finally, we would like to encourage specific panels on oral history and its use in education, and on research combining oral history and audio-visual research (again with reference to this year’s theme of rupture and crises).
Please send your proposals to Graham Smith (Graham.Smith@rhul.ac.uk
), Andrea Strutz (email@example.com
) and Timothy Ashplant (T.G.Ashplant@livjm.ac.uk
Upon submission you must also pre-register on the conference website http://www.iisg.nl/esshc/2012/index.php
where more general conference information is available.
Panel proposals should be submitted by the intended chair(s) of the panel, and include details of each of the papers proposed. The deadline for sending your abstract is May 15, 2013.
Early Modern Memory
8-9 May 2014, University of Worcester (UK)
The objective of this conference is to contribute to the study of cultural memory in the early modern era (1500-1800) through a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approach.
With this in mind, we ask the following questions: how did men and women of this period remember and forget? Which stories were ‘permissible’ and which ‘prohibited’, from a social, personal, and political standpoint? How did representations of the past determine the present and shape the future? In what ways did the various discourses of the past determine collective and individual identities? What were the strategies and practices of memory? To what degree were non-official or repressed forms of cultural memory influential? What were the relations between memory and monuments in the early modern period? How can we understand the dual nature of early modern monuments: as tools of ideologically driven memory (fixed memory) and/or as constant sources of memory construction and influence? What were the connections between culturally inherited memories and individual memories? How did technological developments influence the process of forgetting, remembering, and/or commemorating the past? How did the role of cultural memory influence the relationship between historical research and images of the past in various early modern societies and cultures?
The overall aim of the conference is to explore the role of cultural memories in the early modern period in their broad contexts and so the conference aims at fostering a critical dialogue beyond the boundaries set by various disciplines.
Papers from various disciplines and fields are most welcomed. Submissions of proposals for fully-formed panels and suggestions for workshops are also encouraged. We hope that due to its interdisciplinary nature, the conference will bring many interesting observations on and discussions of the role of cultural memory in the early modern period.
Deadline for proposals: 1 November 2013.
Auto/biography in Transit. 9th International Association for Biography and Autobiography (IABA) Conference
29 May-1 June 2014, Banff Centre, Canada
The IABA Canada conference team welcomes submissions for the ninth IABA
conference, to be held at the Banff Centre in the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
This conference will focus on the themes of transit and transition as a way to think about how lives, narratives and other forms of self representation are constantly in motion. What does it mean for texts and identities to be in transit across national borders, genres, media and languages? The study of auto/biography and life writing is also in transit: where have we been, and where should we be going as a field?
In Alberta, Canada, a place that has often been conceptualized as the "frontier," we invite proposals from a wide range of disciplines about what it means when identities and representations of many kinds push at political and conceptual boundaries. Topics can include but are not limited to the following:
·The state of the field---past trajectories, new directions
·Genre, social action and auto/biography
·Public transit: famous, infamous, ordinary lives
·Transitory stories: making identity across and through borders
·Traveling as identity and as work
·Indigenous stories in transition
·Transnational lives and the idea of place
·Get outside (the human): ecocriticism, the biosphere, animal life
·Networked selves: new media in transit
·Life History and anthropology
·Updates: diaries, letters, blogs, Pinterest, tumblr, and more
·Literary movements and life writing
·Being moved: affect and narrative
·Trans/it: queering life stories
·Life Studies: pedagogical issues and approaches
Please send 300-word abstracts as email attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org
by September 10, 2013. *Decisions will be made by September 30.
The Ethics of War and Conflict in Graphic Narratives
3-6 April 2014, The Hague (the Netherlands)
The annual conference of the European Association for American Studies (EAAS) will host a session on 'Ethics of War and Conflict in Graphic Narratives'. We seek papers by Americanists from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds who are interested in the ways that graphic narratives address the ethical dimensions of war and conflict.
We are using the term “graphic narrative” (cf. Chute and deKoven) here to refer to a variety of genres in comic book format because it usefully covers comic strips, superhero comics, graphic reportage, autobiographical comics, etc. From the human rights reportage of Joe Sacco to the graphic memoirs of Art Spiegelman and Keiji Nakazawa, from the rhetorics of justice that structure superhero comics to the ways that culture wars get framed through political cartooning, all forms of comics art both reflect and participate in the production of various ethical considerations.
These ethical considerations include but are not limited to: discourses of justice, recognition, and human rights; the politics of spectatorship and emotion; the costs of war on both the private level and in the public realm; the politics of nationalism, citizenship, and belonging; the construction of masculinity/femininity in the context of war; racial and ethnic stereotyping in war-related comics.
Proposals for this session can address any form of the comics medium from any time period and can also focus on non-American comics, although proposals must demonstrate how the topic comments or frames “America” in some way. We are particularly interested in papers that examine the links between comics ethics and comics form, the way the form itself (frames, gutters, drawing style, sequential effects, the interaction between words and images, the connections between drawing and photography etc.) has the potential to speak to larger ethical considerations. In addition, we are also particularly interested in papers that contextualize comics by using critical and cultural theory.
Ideally, this workshop would also lay the foundations for the creation of a comics research network amongst Americanists in Europe and beyond. In this way, we would like to use a small portion of the workshop time to brainstorm the possibilities of building such a network.
Note: Speakers must be members of their national Association for American Studies if there exists one in their home country. Speakers from Canada, Israel, Japan, and the USA must be members of their respective American Studies Associations, or of another organization with an appropriate focus (OAH, APSA, etc.). All presentations will be 20-minutes. The conference allows for a maximum of 2 sessions with 3-4 presenters in each. We can therefore accept up to 8 papers.
Please send an abstract between 300 and 500 words by October 1st to the workshop chairs: Rebecca Scherr: email@example.com
and Mihaela Precup:firstname.lastname@example.org
Writing women's lives
19-20 April 2014, Istanbul (Turkey)
This symposium is organized by the Women’s Library and Information Center Foundation and Yeditepe University, Department of History, Istanbul.
We call for papers from a broad, interdisciplinary field of women's life writing including biography and autobiography, letters, diaries, memoirs, family histories, case histories and other ways in which women's lives have been recorded.
The call is open to various genres and national, regional and global cultural traditions of women's life writings as well as to papers on the related areas of women's oral traditions, oral history research, testimonies, and the representation of women's lives in all possible verbal and non-verbal art forms, such as documentaries, video, art, etc.
We welcome proposals for individual papers, roundtables, workshops, films and other presentations.
The abstracts should be sent in English, but the presentations might be either in English or in Turkish. The maximum time allowed for any presentation will be 20 minutes. The organizing committee is working to provide simultaneous translation during the symposium.
Abstracts of papers should be 250-500 words in length (in English only) and must include: the name of the writer and the affiliation, a short biodata and contact information (e-mail, postal address, phone and fax number).
All documents must be submitted - before 30 November 2013 - to: email@example.com.
Looking at then now. International conference on oral history
8-10 June 2014, Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel)
The Oral History Divison of the Hebrew University will host an international conference on the issue of subjectivity in the creation of oral histories in all areas of study, as well as how this issue is understood and presented in scholarly work.
The conference will address these methodological issues in relation to the following areas of study: immigration and transnationalism, trauma studies, holocaust studies, human rights, conflict studies, minorities studies, gender studies, culture & identity.
The conference will be organized into panel sessions planned around a specific theme of investigation. Participants are encouraged to submit an individual paper or organize a panel.
Proposals are to be sent, no later than October 30th, 2013, to:
War Memories: Commemoration, Re-enactment, Writings of War in the English-speaking World
17-19 June 2014, Université Européenne de Bretagne – Rennes 2 (France)
The wars of the past have not left the same imprint on collective memory. Wars of conquest or liberation have marked the history of the British Empire and its colonies in different ways. American foreign policy seems to be motivated by what is sometimes viewed as an imperialist vision which led the army into the quagmire of Vietnam and more recently into controversial involvement in the Gulf. Whether they end in victory or defeat, or are a source of patriotic pride or collective shame, wars are commemorated in museum exhibitions or through literature and the cinema in which the threads of ideological discourse and the expression of subjective experience are intertwined. From the upheavals of the Napoleonic Wars and the American Civil War to the Boer Wars in South Africa, from the “Troubles” in Northern Ireland to the carnage and devastation of the two World Wars, some conflicts seem to attract “duties of memory” while others are simply forgotten. Military interventions in the Falklands, in Bosnia, and more recently in the Gulf, in Afghanistan, in Iraq and in Libya have created a new kind of memory, the narrative constructed by television images. In this period preceding the 100th anniversary of the Great War, when the links between memory and history are central to historiographical preoccupations, this international conference will encompass the representations of wars in the English-speaking world during the 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.
The mediatisation, performance, interpretation and rewriting of facts and events during and after wars will be central to our reflexions in various workshops. We welcome diachronic, synchronic or comparative studies along with those questioning the process of memory and memorisation. Patriotic fervour, federating or demobilising discourses, resistance, conscientious objection, injury and trauma, propaganda and counter-propaganda contribute to the shaping of individual and collective memory and further the reconsideration of long-held truths in the light of new discoveries and with the benefit of hindsight. There will be a dedicated Great War workshop.
Please send your abstract of 250 words and a 200 word biography directly to the conference website http://warmem2014.sciencesconf.org/
by 15th June 2013.
Saints & Hagiography
7-10 July 2014, Leeds (UK)
The Hagiography Society seeks either individual papers or full session proposals for sponsored sessions at the International Medieval Congress 2014 in Leeds (7-10 July). Although all proposals relating to saints and hagiography will be considered, those which respond to the congress theme of ‘Empire’ or to the suggested sessions below are particularly welcomed.
* Shifting Practices, Priorities, and Perceptions: The Changing Nature of Medieval Saints’ Cults - Whether considered from the standpoint of a single cult centre, or a saint with a following spread over a wide geographic area, the practices, motivations, and audiences of saints’ cults often changed over time. Papers in this panel might explore this issue through a variety of lenses: using available documentation of cult practice and promotion, iconographic changes seen in the representation of saints over time, alterations made to shrines and buildings, developments in the hagiographical tradition as witnessed by surviving copies of vitae, or other approaches. Interdisciplinary work is welcomed.
* Local Heroes: New Approaches to the Study of Minor Saints and their Cults - This session is intended to provide an arena for scholars currently working on lesser-known saints and cults for which only fleeting textual, visual and/or material evidence remains. Proposed papers should engage with some of the following questions: What avenues of investigation are open to researchers in this area? How have new methodologies changed the field? How significant were these cults to the communities who venerated them? What factors prevented these saints from achieving wider prominence? And what insights do such micro-studies add to our broader understanding of medieval devotional practices?
Individual papers should be 20 minutes in length while full session proposals must consist of three papers.
Please e-mail abstract proposals of between 250-300 words per paper to H.Birkett@exeter.ac.uk
by Friday 13 September.
Picturing the Family: Media, Narrative, Memory
10-11 July 2014, Birkbeck, University of London (UK)
This conference will set out to explore how concepts of family have been acted out, reinvented, or deconstructed, through various media including the visual arts, literature, and museum exhibitions, across the centuries.
The family picture will be considered both in its figurative and artefactual forms. We will look at the significance of the family picture in literary works or films, and we will consider alternative concepts of family and kinship as pictured in paintings, photographs, graphic novels, and other visual media. We are interested in media transfers, the question of what happens to family pictures when they are included in literary or visual narratives whether these are autobiographical or fictional. We aim to explore how different media reproduce or replace the family picture, or evoke it once it becomes lost (e.g. through ekphrasis). We are also interested in the types of narratives that are created in museums, social media and family albums, through displays of family pictures and portraits.
Key questions to be examined will include: what are the changing conventions of the family picture and how do they reflect the changing conceptions of the institution of the family? Who is the addressee of the family portrait? How do family narratives and family pictures inform each other? What is the role of family pictures in individual and cultural memory? Is the family a privileged site of memorial transmission (Aleida Assmann, Marianne Hirsch)? Has it become the central trope through which national history is framed? What role do family pictures play within other cultural forms, e.g. in literature or film? Can other cultural forms offer alternatives to the kinds of family portrait we associate with photography?
We call for papers in English from across the disciplines and periods, as we wish to consider how the notion of ‘family’ translates across time, through various ways of picturing it.
Please send an abstract of no more than 400 words to the organising committee at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
by 30 November 2013. We hope to publish a selection of the papers in due course.
Power and Democracy: The Many Voices of Oral History
9-12 July 2014, University of Barcelona (Spain)
The International Oral History Association will hold its next meeting in Spain at the University of Barcelona.
The force of democracy as well as the resistance it has met have prompted oral history projects around the world. Interviews with advocates of change have supplemented and supplanted archives of discredited regimes. Oral histories have documented social and political upheavals, reform movements and reactions. Oral histories have revealed the effects of power relationships that exist between citizens and their governments, workers and employers, students and teachers, and the layers within institutions, communities, and families. As a democratic tool, oral history records and preserves the memories, perceptions, and voices of individuals and groups at all levels and in all endeavors, but that raises questions about what to do with these interviews and how to share them with the people and communities they reflect.
Power and democracy will be the theme of the IOHA’s meeting in Barcelona, with the sub-themes:
* Archives, Oral Sources, and Remembrance
* Power in Human Relations
* Democracy as a Political Tool
* Oral Sources and Cultural Heritage
* New Ways to Share Our Dialogue with the Public
Those interested in participating should send a single-page proposal including an outline of your paper and the following details:
1. Name (with your family name in CAPITAL letters).
3. Postal address
4. Email address
5. Phone and fax numbers
6. Relevant sub-theme
7. Whether an individual paper, a thematic panel, a workshop proposal, or a performance.
8. Suggestions for Special Interest Groups
Deadline for proposals: September 15, 2013.
