People from all disciplines within the humanities are invited to send proposals for papers for the LUCAS International Graduate Conference 2015: 'Breaking the Rules! Cultural Reflections on Political Religious and Aesthetic Transgressions', to be held on 29 and 30 January 2015.
The Dossier 'Orality and Technauriture of African Literatures’ edited by Daniela Merolla was published in the last volume of Tydskrif vir Letterkunde, the oldest literary journal in South Africa.
On 19 and 20 June all people interested are invited to join the symposium 'Satirical Catalogues - Fictitious Libraries (16th-18th centuries)' . This symposium will focus on the early modern genre of the fictitious booklist – a genre invented by François Rabelais. Mireille Huchon, professor at the Sorbonne, one of the world’s leading experts on French Renaissance literature, will interview Martin-Salvan and Hennegrave about his remarkable theatrical experiment: putting Rabelais' imaginary libraries on stage.
