Registration Open Winter School “Imagining Southern Europe: Culture & Populism” 2019 (University of Groningen and University of Valencia)

Southern European countries such as Spain, Portugal, Italy and Greece face common social, cultural and economic challenges. These challenges require profound analysis and evaluation. The central questions on which this Winter School will focus depart from the hypothesis that the 2008 financial crisis and its particular manifestation in Southern European countries has revealed historical processes of interrelation and interdependence in the region that have developed since Early Modernity.

The aim of the winter school is to analyse these processes based on cultural representations (through individual and collective imaginaries) of symbolic capital exchanges and power relationships. This edition central theme is culture and populism in Southern Europe.

Key-questions addressed in this Winter School include the following: How meaningful is it to speak of a common “European” culture, history or public space? How has it been formulated in the past and how should such a concept be formulated? How has the circulation of knowledge (in media, research, publishing practices, intellectual and education networks) contributed to or challenged European integration? How do various European spaces and identities make use of the media and systems of representation? Are representations of Europe mainly created by Northern/continental Europe? How do Southern Europe citizens contribute to and participate in a European public space? How can multiple disparate histories and cultures be integrated into a notion of national or “European” identities?

2000ste gedicht aangemeld op Straatpoezie.nl

UTRECHT – Literatuurwetenschapper Kila van der Starre, verbonden aan de Universiteit Utrecht, heeft voor het eerst op grote schaal in kaart gebracht welke gedichten te lezen zijn in de openbare ruimte van Nederland en Vlaanderen. Met behulp van crowdsourcing is nu het 2000ste gedicht aangemeld op de door haar opgerichte site Straatpoezie.nl.

2000ste gedicht

Op 20 november 2018 is het 2000ste gedicht aangemeld op de interactieve kaart van Straatpoezie.nl. Literatuurwetenschapper Kila van der Starre lanceerde die site bijna twee jaar geleden, tijdens de Poëzieweek 2017. Ze deed dit in het kader van haar proefschrift aan de Universiteit Utrecht over ‘poëzie buiten het boek’. Op de kaart van Straatpoezie.nl staat ieder rood label voor een gedicht. Ook kan men in de database zoeken op titel van gedicht en naam van dichter.

Het 2000ste gedicht dat werd aangemeld is het gedicht ‘Herkenning’ van Ida Gerhardt, te lezen in de 1e Steeg in Hattem (Gelderland). Carmen Verhoeven voegde het gedicht toe aan de database, zonder te weten dat haar aanmelding het 2000ste gedicht was. Toeval wil dat Ida Gehardt al een bijzondere rol speelde op de site: met 36 aangemelde gedichten is zij de nummer één dichter op Straatpoezie.nl. Van geen enkele andere dichter zijn zoveel gedichten te lezen in de openbare ruimte van Nederland en Vlaanderen. Gerhardts gedicht ‘Herkenning’ kwam nog niet eerder voor in de database.

Crowdsourcing

Het doel van Straatpoezie.nl is het maken van een inventarisatie van alle poëzie die dag en nacht gratis te lezen is in de openbare ruimte van Nederland en Vlaanderen. Van der Starre gebruikt crowdsourcing om tot die inventarisatie te komen: iedereen die wil, kan voorbeelden van straatpoëzie aanmelden op de site. Dat gaat snel en makkelijk via een online formulier. ‘Iedereen kent wel een straatgedicht, maar niemand kent ze allemaal. Samen weten we meer.’ Dat is het idee dat Van der Starre ertoe aanzette om de site te lanceren.

Straatpoezie.nl zorgt ervoor dat dit deel van het literair erfgoed digitaal wordt gearchiveerd. Ook levert de site een grote hoeveelheid data op over het fenomeen ‘straatpoëzie’, die Van der Starre gebruikt voor haar proefschrift. Daarnaast is de site een manier om een breed publiek te betrekken bij wetenschappelijk onderzoek (ook wel ‘citizen science’ genoemd).

Stand van zaken

Het 2000ste gedicht is een mijlpaal voor Straatpoezie.nl en vormt een moment om een blik te werpen op de stand van zaken. Wat kan er tot nu toe geconcludeerd worden?

De kaart van Straatpoezie.nl bevat 2000 gedichten van 983 verschillende dichters. Gedichten zijn te lezen op muren, gevels, daken, plakkaten, standbeelden, borden, posters, schuttingen, stoeptegels, ramen en veel meer dragers in de openbare ruimte. Verf, neonlicht, metaal, hout, glas, stickers, plastic, krijt en vele andere materialen worden gebruikt om de poëzie te presenteren.

Straatgedichten worden gerealiseerd door stichting en gemeentes (soms met behulp van een ‘leefbaarheidsbudget’), door buurtbewoners, scholen, winkeleigenaren, stadsdichters en anonieme auteurs. Er zijn in de openbare ruimte gedichten te vinden in het Nederlands, Fries, Drents, Schiermonnikoogs, Engels, Frans, Arabisch, Portugees, Chinees en vele andere talen en dialecten. Sommige gedichten zijn al sinds de 17e eeuw te lezen op gebouwen, anderen zijn veel recenter aangebracht of werden slechts tijdelijk gepresenteerd.

Cijfers

De site is sinds de oprichting (eind januari 2017) 35.079 keer bezocht door 27.892 unieke bezoekers, die samen zorgen voor 78.075 pageviews. De drukbezochtste maand was september 2017. De publicatie van Van der Starre’s onderzoeksrapport Poëzie in Nederland en een video van ‘NOS op 3’ zorgden er toen voor dat de site zelfs crashte onder de hoeveelheid bezoekers. De afdeling ‘ICT & Media’ van de Universiteit Utrecht, die de technische kant van de site beheert, zorgde ervoor dat de site snel weer in de lucht was.

Top 10

Van sommige dichters zijn meerdere gedichten te lezen in de openbare ruimte en sommige gedichten komen zelfs op meerdere plekken voor. De tien vaakst voorkomende dichters op Straatpoezie.nl zijn hieronder te vinden.

Opvallend is dat deze top tien een mix is van levende en dode dichters, vrouwen en mannen en dichters met verschillende mate van bekendheid. Er staan canonieke overleden dichters in (zoals Gerhardt, Slauerhoff, Lucebert, Kopland, Achterberg en Van Ostaijen), bekende levende dichters (zoals Heytze, Deelder en Van Leeuwen), maar ook veel minder bekende dichters (zoals Stabergh, Criens, Schouwenaar en Wind) en een pseudoniem van een anonieme dichter (Straathaikoe). De top tien op Straatpoezie.nl laat een hele andere mix van dichters zien dan bijvoorbeeld de top tien vaakst gekozen gedichten in bloemlezingen of schoolboeken.

Vaakst bekeken

De tien vaakst bekeken gedichten op Straatpoezie.nl zijn:

  1. ‘Thuis’ van Judith Nieken, te lezen in Leeuwarden.
  2. ‘Klein’ van Bart Moeyaert, te lezen in Antwerpen.
  3. ‘Alles blijft’ van Jules Deelder, te lezen in Rotterdam.
  4. ‘Nacht: veilige overkapping’ van Hanny Michaelis, te lezen op Utrecht Centraal.
  5. ‘terugkomen is niet hetzelfde als blijven’ van Belle van Zuylen, te lezen in Amsterdam.
  6. ‘De hoofdige boer’ van A.C.W. Staring, te lezen in Almen.
  7. ‘Ik kom thuis’ van Henk Renting, te lezen in Eindhoven.
  8. ‘Heel de aarde is je vaderland’ van Erasmus, te lezen in Rotterdam.
  9. ‘Binnen de perken’ van Jules Deelder, te lezen in Rotterdam.
  10. ‘Als je goed om je heen kijkt’ van K. Schippers, te lezen in Boxtel.

Voor lange tijd stonden twee andere gedichten in de top tien van vaakst bekeken gedichten op Straatpoezie.nl, namelijk:

Deze twee gedichten zijn van anonieme auteurs en zorgden voor aandacht en nieuwsgierigheid op social media, onder andere op de Facebookpagina ‘Straatpoëzie’. Op die pagina deelt oprichter Kila van der Starre iedere dag een voorbeeld van een straatgedicht. Ook deelt ze mysteries rond straatgedichten (vooral wanneer de gedichten van een anonieme auteur zijn en zonder toestemming lijken te zijn geplaatst), die soms door lezers worden opgelost.

Straatpoëzie in het onderwijs

Het tegenkomen van poëzie ‘in het wild’ is een van de manieren waarop de meeste mensen in Nederland het vaakst in aanraking komen met poëzie, bleek uit het onderzoeksrapport Poëzie in Nederland. Straatpoëzie kan daarom een mooie opstap vormen om met poëzie aan de slag te gaan in het onderwijs. Op Straatpoezie.nl is een lijst te vinden met lesideeën rond ‘straatpoëzie in de klas’. Ook is er een lijst met leestips over het fenomeen ‘straatpoëzie’ gepubliceerd.

Toekomst

Kila van der Starre hoopt dat er nog veel gedichten worden aangemeld op Straatpoezie.nl. Niemand weet hoeveel poëzie er in totaal te lezen is in onze openbare ruimte, maar aan de toestroom van aanmeldingen te zien is het einde nog niet bereikt. Ken jij een gedicht in de openbare ruimte dat nog niet op de kaart staat? Aanmelden gaat snel en makkelijk via het online formulier.

Ondersteuning

Straatpoezie.nl wordt ondersteund door de Universiteit Utrecht en de Nederlandse Organisatie voor Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek (NWO). Straatpoëzie is een van de zes casussen waar Van der Starre over schrijft in haar proefschrift. De andere casussen zijn poëzie op de radio (Candlelightpoëzie), rond bijzondere gebeurtenissen (poëzie in rouwadvertenties), op lichamen (poëzietatoeages), op gebruiksvoorwerpen (poëzieproducten van Plint) en op social media (Instagrampoëzie). Van der Starres proefschrift wordt in 2019 verwacht.

Call for Papers – Metamodernism

Conference dates: Thursday 4 and Friday 5 July 2019
Location: Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands
Organisers: Dr Dennis Kersten (RU), Dr Usha Wilbers (RU) and Prof. Antony Rowland (ManMet)

Deadline abstracts: 1 February 2019

Metamodernism registers how artists across different disciplines have recently responded to the ways in which postmodernism appears increasingly unable to account for recent developments in history and culture. Critics differ, however, in their response to this phenomenon, which can be roughly divided into two main perspectives. Tim Vermeulen and Robin van den Akker – working in the areas of fine art and cultural studies rather than literary criticism – propose that Metamodernism attempts to account for the emergence of a wider “structure of feeling” in the twenty-first century which responds to our historicity, bound up with the aftermaths of 9/11, the financial crash and austerity. David James and Urmila Seshagiri, on the other hand, present Metamodernism as a concept that explains the resurfacing, and reworking, of Modernism in contemporary fiction. This conference seeks to bring together the various strands in this debate by focusing on the question how Metamodernism, in the terminology of Vermeulen, Van den Akker and Alison Gibbons, upcycles “past styles, conventions and techniques.”

We welcome abstracts for presentations about case studies of Metamodernism—in various disciplines, genres and cultural contexts—which explore the way in which they relate to earlier ‘isms’, art movements and aesthetic legacies. We are specifically interested in papers which explicitly address issues of:

  • Interdisciplinary Metamodernism
  • Architecture and Metamodernism
  • Poetry and Metamodernism
  • The resurfacing of Modernism and / in Metamodernism
  • Metamodernism and visual art
  • Metamodern music
  • Metamodernism and the ‘new sincerity’
  • Metamodernism and ‘Up Lit’

We also welcome proposals for joint panels (three papers maximum).

Please send a 250 word proposal, including a brief CV, by 1 February 2019 to: Dennis Kersten: d.kersten@let.ru.nl / Usha Wilbers: u.wilbers@let.ru.nl / Antony Rowland: a.rowland@mmu.ac.uk.

Call for papers: Beyond Boundaries. Authorship and Readership in Life Writing

A two-day conference held at Tilburg University, the Netherlands
24 and 25 October 2019

In ‘The Limits of Life Writing’ David McCooey (2017) argues that in life-writing studies, the concept of limits or boundaries plays a central role. Since the rise of auto/biography studies in the 1970s and 1980s critical attention has been paid to generic limits and the limits concerning the auto/biographical subject. With respect to the former, discussions have evolved in particular around the boundaries between literary and factual writing, and between verbal, graphic, audio-visual and digital forms of life writing. In regard to the latter, academics since the 1990s have given attention to the expansion of auto/biographical subjects previously marginalized, which has deepened, among other things, the cross-cultural understanding of experience and identity. This expansion of auto/biographical subjects, but also the rise of social media as a medium for life writing have contested the limits of selfhood.

However, some other limits have gone largely unnoticed in life-writing research so far. Two of them will be the center of attention during this conference, one having to do with readership, and the other concerned with authorship. Until now little attention has been paid to the boundaries between life writing for adults on the one hand and life writing for young readers on the other. Crossing these boundaries can provide fruitful debates about how the reader matters and how studying the reception and addressed audiences of life writing is important.

Another issue that has not received much attention in life writing research is the boundary between life writing by adult authors and life narratives by young people. As Douglas and Poletti (2016) argue, the contribution of young writers to life writing has so far been largely overlooked. How do they relate to narratives by adults? How similar or different are the ways in which adult and young writers engage in modes of self-representation? And what is the influence of social media on life writing by young people?

We welcome presentations on authorship and readership in different forms of life writing by adult and young authors, marketed to adult and young readers. To what extent do authors use life writing to put issues of power, voice and agency on the public agenda? How do readers matter in the way authors of life writing address themselves to them? What are the similarities and differences between life writing for an adult audience and for young readers? What aspects define (successful) dual-audience life writing?

As life writing is relevant for academic disciplines such as the humanities and social sciences, in particular children’s literature, literature and culture studies, ethnography, anthropology and philosophy, we look forward to receiving proposals from researchers working in these fields, and to discussing disciplinary boundaries at the conference.

Subthemes are

  • Cultural diversity
  • Transnational life writing
  • Life writing in text and images
  • Offline and online life writing
  • Gender issues in life writing
  • LGTBQ life writing
  • Dual-audience life writing
  • Creating childhoods through life writing

Keynote speakers (confirmed): Prof. dr Anna Poletti (Utrecht University, The Netherlands) and prof. dr Lydia Kokkola (Lulea University, Sweden)

Conference organizers: Prof. dr Helma van Lierop (Tilburg University), Dr Jane McVeigh (University of Roehampton), Dr Monica Soeting (European Journal of Life Writing)

Abstracts consisting of a maximum of 250 words, a title, an indication of the subtheme your abstract fits in best, name, institutional affiliation or status as independent scholar, email address and a short bio of no more than 150 words should be sent before 15 March 2019 to Prof. dr Helma van Lierop at h.vanlierop@tilburguniversity.edu.

Call for Papers – InDialog 3

Interpreter Practice, Research and Training: the Impact of Context

ENPSIT is delighted to announce that the international InDialog Conference series will be continuing under its auspices from 2019.

InDialog 3 will be held in Antwerp on 21-22 November 2019 and hosted jointly by the University of Antwerp and KU Leuven Antwerp campus.

Continuing the initiative of the past two conferences in the series, InDialog 3 will deal with dialogue interpreting in its many forms. The conference focuses on the impact of different contexts on the way dialogue interpreting unfolds in practice and how this phenomenon is being researched and addressed in (higher) education and training.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Context is to be understood in a broad sense. Not only does it refer to those dialogue interpreting contexts that may be perceived as the usual suspects, such as institutional health care, legal interpreting and the diverse contexts of public service interpreting more generally. ENPSIT particularly wishes to invite contributions examining dialogue interpreting in other scenarios such as conflict situations, refugee camps, war zones and various other ad hoc interpreting settings. A further aspect will be the potential impact of unusual circumstances on so-called normal working settings and conditions in today’s globalized society. Interpreters are required to deal with the unexpected and cope with a range of challenges as a matter of course. InDialog 3 will provide a forum to examine how we are dealing with these challenges as practitioners, researchers and trainers.

Individual papers, panels and posters

  • Deadline submissions: 01/02/2019
  • Notification of acceptance: 15/03/2019
