IECL Conferences

  • The Materiality of Love
    The Materiality of Love

    The Institute of English Cultures and Literatures, University of Silesia (Poland) and Love Research Network are happy to announce the CFP for the upcoming conference:

    The Materiality of Love

    The interest of love studies in the ways affection can be materialized has been reflected through various scholarly perspectives. Although material culture studies have given the issue less attention, there has recently been a revival of research into the intersection of materiality and love. The conference is seeking to reexamine love from the perspective of materiality studies, especially new materialism and object-oriented philosophy, to sparkle a debate on a relationship between love, objects and new forms of materializing affection. The conference aims to analyze the role of things and material culture in practicing and conceptualizing love. It intends to provide an insight into how materiality (in its broadest sense) impacts the understanding of love today (its meanings and practices), and reversely, how love contributes to the production and transformation of the material world.
