“Meaning is a shaky edifice we build out of scraps, dogmas, childhood injuries, newspaper articles, chance remarks, old films, small victories, people hated, people loved; perhaps it is because our sense of what is the case is constructed from such inadequate materials that we defend it so fiercely, even to death.”

Radical Materialisms

Boston College English Graduate Conference

April 6th, 2019

New materialisms and object-oriented ontology offer a radical reorganization—perhaps a democratization—of human/object relations, deemphasizing human agency in favor of a “parliament of things.” This conference asks if such approaches have been too quick to abandon human politics altogether. Can new materialisms be both conceptually and politically radical?

As technological development continues to advance at an unprecedented rate, humanity finds itself more and more integrated with, and oftentimes dependent on, technological amplifications, interventions, and solutions. As such technology becomes commonplace, blurring the boundaries between organic and synthetic life, we might ask ourselves, will we someday reach a point where being “human” ceases to mean anything?

Re-Viewing Projective Verse: Form and Collaboration in Avant-Garde Poetics

Wednesday, January 9, 2019 - 9:43am
The Charles Olson Society
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 21, 2019

The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a session at the American Literature Association Conference, to be held in Boston, May 23-26, 2019. We are interested in abstracts about any aspect of avant-garde poetics in mid-Century American verse, but in particular those that explore the collaborative and/or formal mechanics of projective verse as it developed in the diverse poetry communities of the 1950s and 1960s. While Olson’s essay “Projective Verse” has received ample treatment in studies concerning his own poetry and his direct contemporaries (Duncan/Creeley), other poets also built on projective verse in their own ways, fashioning distinctive styles that are related to projective verse but that transform it as well.

[Deadline Extended] A Special Issue of The Global South (Fall 2021) - Contextualizing the Anglophone Novel

Since the 1980s, when the Jameson-Ahmad debate over how to read literatures putatively labeled as “third-world” and the notion of empire writing back to European literary traditions held sway in postcolonial studies, new contexts and ways of reading postcolonial and Anglophone literatures have been introduced and taken up. John J. Su’s Imagination and the Contemporary Novel (2011) and Mrinalini Chakrovorty’s In Stereotype (2014), for example, demonstrate that analyzing aesthetic and fictional representations of life in postcolonial realities brings into light the transnational aspect of contemporary literary production and the global marketplace with Anglo-American tastes and trends, both of which require further contextual consideration.

World religions have long held pilgrimage as an important journey of the faithful. Today, however, there is an increasing number of non-religious, secular or spiritual pilgrims undertaking these journeys. The nearly 800 km-long Camino de Santiago is a popular destination for secular pilgrims travelling through France and across Northern Spain. Established as one of three principal Christian pilgrimage routes over 1,200 years ago, the Camino is experiencing increasing visitor numbers with over 300,000 undertaking the journey each year.

Much attention has been given to recent American studies showing a dramatic increase in the numbers of those who distance themselves from religious affiliation. Here in Quebec, it is approximately 50 years since the Quiet Revolution, a political movement that wrested control over health and education from the Catholic Church to a secular government. Today in Montreal, fewer than 4% of the population regularly attends mass, a trend that echoes the situation in Europe (1).
