19th-century Britain witnessed the convergence of many historical trends that exacerbated disability stigma, even as the era embraced a rehabilitative ethos. The growth of specialized medicine, the expansion of a sprawling asylum system, institutional categorization of the poor, public health initiatives, and the rise of eugenics: all these and more spawned attitudes and practices that worked to disable those who were physically and mentally impaired.

Intersectional, Innovative, Digital: Whither the New Humanities? (NeMLA 2021)

The humanities have been at a crossroads for almost the last ten years, since the rise of the digital humanities as “the next big thing” (Panapacker, 2009). Staunch advocates of the humanities would, of course, look back further and defend the discipline from its inception. The idea that studying the humanities generates more empathy and compassion is one that is now commonly understood. However, the innovation in the humanities in recent years – partly in response to greater funding and public fervor for so-called “STEM” fields – has not been without controversy of its own.

Giant Steps: Coltrane, Space, and Innovation

The Savoy Ballroom in New York, Preservation Hall in New Orleans, the intersection of 12th Street and Vine in Kansas City, and the Green Mill on Chicago’s North Side all stand as cradles for jazz tradition.

How does one site those spaces though that have housed jazz innovations, like 1511 North 33rd in Philadelphia, John Coltrane’s Strawberry Mansion?Where are the places that jazz can call home? Improvisations and experimentation certainly, but what spaces and which places make those transitions in the artform, its delivery, and reception?

BALANCING ACTS No. 14, Vol. 2

Balance is an insecure state. When extreme acts of falling (releasing) and suspension (being unable to move) push bodies off balance, into a state of disorientation, balance is put into question. Following Sara Ahmed’s observation that bodies lose their balance if they do not move along the straight vertical line of capital (2016) and Anne Cooper Albright’s analysis which explores how we can practice realigning ‘at the edge of our balance’ (2019), this issue of Platform investigates moments in which balance is put at stake.

Periodicals and Silent Cinema (Special Edition of the Journal of Modern Periodical Studies)

Submissions are solicited for a special edition of the Journal of Modern Periodical Studies on the relationship between periodicals and silent cinema. Work is encouraged which treats the topic in its global, as well as Anglophone, context. 

The rise of silent cinema in the early twentieth century changed the business of writing and publishing forever. Editors, journalists, essayists and authors found themselves catering for readers whose cultural expectations had been transformed by their interactions with cinema. Debates raged over which periodical form would first be rendered obsolete: the daily newspaper? The illustrated magazine? The serialised novel? The weekly comic? The compendium of short fiction?

“Rhetorical Theory”
Las Vegas, 11/12-15, 2020

Chair: Dr. Ryan Leack, USC

“Rhetoric is a coproductive function of circulation in excess of human intention, which collapses rhetoric and persuasion into the rhetorical, a process of world making that extends relationality into future publics.” 

—Byron Hawk, Resounding the Rhetorical (2018)

This panel will explore recent movements in rhetorical theory writ large, either in connection with or apart from composition theory and practice. Special attention will be given to proposals that engage with the conference's theme.

Science, Technology, and Literature During Plagues and Pandemics

 

In The Parasite, Michel Serres argues that “the parasite intervenes, enters the system as an element of fluctuation. It excites it or incites it; it puts into motion, or it paralyzes.” Throughout the world, COVID-19 continues to interrupt and alter daily life while it simultaneously compels governments to rely on technology and science to combat its spread. Configurations is seeking articles that examine intersections of science, technology, and literature with myriad contemporary and historical contexts relevant to COVID-19.

Navigating Chaos: Living the Apocalyptic Dystopia

Hegel wrote that the only thing we can learn from history is that we learn nothing from history, so I doubt the epidemic will make us any wiser. The only thing that is clear is that the virus will shatter the very foundations of our lives, causing not only an immense amount of suffering but also economic havoc conceivably worse than the Great Recession. There is no return to normal, the new “normal” will have to be constructed on the ruins of our old lives, or we will find ourselves in a new barbarism whose signs are already clearly discernible.                          (Slovaj Žižek, Pandemic!)
