Writing without Writing: Fragments and Survivance

updated: 
Tuesday, September 3, 2019 - 5:23pm
ACLA 2020
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 23, 2019

Since the nineteenth century to the present, fragmentary writing has been widely deployed in literature and philosophy (i.e. Ernst Bloch, Schlegel, Mallarmé, Adorno, Maurice Blanchot, Kafka, Beckett etc.) as a strategy to disrupt the idea of totality by and through writing. Fragmentary writing as an incomplete totality, bears absent voices and traces and alludes to a whole.

The Other #MeToos

updated:

ACLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 25, 2019

Ever since the inception of #MeToo, conversations have largely circled around the movement as it evolved and exists in the United States. Despite multiple sessions on #MeToo at multiple conferences, I failed to find any that specifically focuses on the reception, translation, and adaptation of #MeToo in non-Western and postcolonial contexts. To fill this gap, this session, “The Other #MeToos,” aims to explore how #MeToo, a popularly Western-centric feminist movement, translates to religiously, geographically, politically, and academically Othered places and Othered women.

From kingdoms staking claims on opposing riverbanks to landowners arguing over a thorny hedge, transitional environments have long formed the foundations for political and social boundaries. Such material anchors in turn may be claimed to demonstrate the natural legitimacy of these borders and the institutions they define. Yet medieval literature, art, and popular culture overflows with depictions of such ecotones – water to land, mountain to plain, forest to field – that test both the permanence and permeability of the categories and divisions humans impose on their surroundings (and themselves).

This session seeks papers that bridge discussions of eighteenth-century Gothic literature with discussions of the Gothic’s role in contemporary literature and culture. Questions explored may include (but are not limited to) the following: What does the eighteenth-century Gothic tell us about our own contemporary Gothic moment? Can studies of the contemporary Gothic shed new light on our understanding of the Gothic's eighteenth-century origins? Are we guilty of dehistoricization if we apply the term “Gothic” to contemporary uncanny or scary texts?

Kalamazoo 2020 - "Scottish Voices, Scottish Borders"

 

Borderland studies have escalated recently within academia, though the relationships between certain borders still remain relatively underexplored. One example is the medieval Anglo-Scottish border, particularly in terms of cross-cultural relationships. When the topic is explored, it is often from the perspective of how English cultural transmissions impacted Scottish arts. This panel’s goal is to explore the prevalence of distinct Scottish voices in cultural artifacts from both sides of the border, emphasizing the rich tradition and culture already established in Scotland during the Middle Ages.

Kalamazoo 2020 - "Celtic Fringe"

 

Since the initial Brexit vote in 2016, conversations about devolution and national identity in the British Isles have become popular in modern discourse. These dialogues are not new; since the Middle Ages, the relationship between regional and national identities has permeated politics, culture, literature, and history. However, much of the focus has been on English perspectives. This roundtable wishes to explore the interactions between Celtic regions—such as Wales, Ireland, Isle of Man, and Scotland—and how these relationships between Celtic groups in the Middle Ages informs the identity crises evident in Great Britain today.

American and English diasporic children’s literature plays a fundamental role in unconsciously reproducing the category of Self as white and male, and the rest of humankind as “Other.” Recent attempts to shift consciousness away from this include the hashtag #ownvoices coined on Twitter in 2015 by Corinne Duyvis, to use, she explains, “for whatever marginalized/diverse identity you want…and for whatever genre, category or form of art you want. As long as the protagonist and the author share a marginalized identity.” Of course, one marginalized identity no adult can share is that of a child. Still, we speak for children from their narrative viewpoints.

Thanks to the CARP collective, John Okada’s 1956 No-No Boy was rescued from obscurity in 1976, and since 1979, has been published through the University of Washington Press with royalties going to the Okada family. In May 2019, Penguin Books marketed a new edition of the novel, tagging it as a classic of Asian American literature, but claiming that its copyright places the work in the public domain so that all proceeds go to Penguin. The Asian American community rallied against the new edition, and it has since been removed from various outlets.

By the turn of the twentieth century, the ‘new astronomy’ had developed into a proper scientific discipline, with its own sets of instruments, its own journals, its own jargon, and its own interpretative authority. With the acceleration of new discoveries and insights into stellar phenomena, the emerging mass media ensured that this astronomical knowledge fascinated an even wider audience in the late 19th and early 20th century. At the same time, literature across Europe responded to the fascinating astronomical developments in a variety of modes, styles, and genres.
