Women in World(-) Literature Conference June 2022 

The ‘Women in World(-)Literature’ conference, organised by IAS Fellows Dr Roxanne Douglas and Dr Fiona Farnsworth ran in hybrid form across Teams and in the Oculus on 22nd and 23rd June. This conference was supported by the Institute of Advanced Study, the Connecting Cultures GRP, the Centre for the Study of Women and Gender and the British Comparative Literature Association.    

The conference built on the Warwick Research Collective’s (WReC’s) pathbreaking Combined and Uneven Development and hosted over 200 delegates from around the world in person and online and, over 20 panels, considered a wide variety of topics including  the gendered relations to work and culture, climate and ecology, food, identities, translation, the practices of reading and writing, myth making, reproductive labour, form and genre, and travel to name but a few. This was unified by themes of peripheralization on a multi-scalar world stage, which we assert is gendered. This theme was unified by an excellent plenary roundtable at the end of Day 1 on ‘Social Reproduction Theory, Women, and World-Culture’ which included Sharae Deckard (University College Dublin), Kate Houlden (Brunel University London), Amy Rushton (Nottingham Trent University), Daniella Sanchez Russo (University Pennsylvania), Alden Sajor Marte-Wood (Rice University), and Rashmi Varma (University of Warwick). This roundtable considered a variety of topics which asked ‘how aesthetic analysis might be deepened by considering the appropriation of women’s bodies and women’s labour for the daily renewal of human life?’ 

The IAS was proud to support this conference and would like to congratulate Roxanne & Fiona for conceiving and organising such a successful and high-profile event.  

IAS Fellow News

We are delighted to share the news that former IAS WIRL-COFUND Fellow  Dr Isabelle Heyerick one has joined the Centre for Deaf Studies at Trinity College Dublin as Assistant Professor in Applied Sign Linguistics. Isabelle joined the IAS in 2018 and her research, which is situated on the intersection of linguistics, intercultural studies, and language ideologies, examines how discourses and ideologies about deaf people and signed languages prevalent in both the majority society and in the Deaf communities influence signed language interpreters’ linguistic decisions.   

Congratulations also go to Edward DeVane, one of our Early Career Fellows. Edward has been appointed as a Policy Adviser within the Department of Health and Social Care. Ed says: 

“The IAS Early Career Fellowship supported me to transition to a career outside of academia after I submitted my PhD thesis in March 2022. I attended workshops on developing leadership skills, received advice from other Fellows on how to pass my viva, and more generally got a chance to socialise and network with other researchers from across the University of Warwick. I think the support of the IAS is absolutely vital in promoting the wellbeing and continued career development of researchers”. 

Early Career Fellowships support completing Warwick PhD students to make the transition into an academic career by turning their thesis into publications and other research outputs and participating in the Accolade skills and training programme.  The next call for applications will be in December 2022 for those submitting their thesis between 1st October 2022 and 30th April 2023.

Exchanges: The Interdisciplinary Research Journal

2023 is set to be an exciting year for Exchanges, as we reach our tenth anniversary. As part of these celebrations, we’re inviting submissions for publication consideration in this October 2023 volume on the theme of authentic interdisciplinarity. You can find details of this call for papers here. 


Meanwhile, Exchanges also welcomes submissions throughout the year by scholars in all disciplines. We are especially pleased to receive manuscripts from first-time or less experienced authors, under our remit as an early-career researcher focussed title. Details of this open call for contributions can be found here:  


As with all Exchanges calls, the Editor-in-Chief welcomes discussions with potential authors ahead of submission, although this is not a pre-requisite. 

Exchanges Discourse Podcast: New Episodes 

This past month has seen two new episodes interviewing scholars who’ve previously published with the journal about their work, aspirations and insights into publications. Firstly, we were in conversation with Florida Gulf Coast University’s Dr Jon Braddy about scizioanalytic cartographies as well as insights into evolving an authentic voice within your academic writing. Then we followed this up with insights from ISI Florence’s Dr Francesca Brunetti about fusing art, personal perceptions and reconstructing cultural stereotypes. You can find these and all past episodes of the podcast on Spotify and most major podcasting platforms, or via the link below:

Framed in an interdisciplinary mode, articles are intended to be read by a broad academic audience.
