Coalitional Feminisms Panel PAMLA

Monday, June 10, 2019

In Gender Trouble, Judith Butler writes that the “value of coalitional politics is not to be underestimated, but the very form of coalition, of an emerging and unpredictable assemblage of positions, cannot be figured in advance.” Butler’s characterization of political coalitions as inherently unpredictable and imminently emergent introduces both the value and challenges of forming feminist-based political coalitions: a heterogeneous group working toward a particular vision of social justice may have access to a louder political voice, but that assemblage is also precarious, its strength dependent on the coalition’s ability to overcome challenges posed by institutional racism, homophobia, cissexism, and classism.

Writing in the Breaks: Black Rhetorics and Rupture

Tuesday, April 23, 2019 - 3:56pm
SAMLA--November 15-17 Atlanta, GA--DEADLINE EXTENDED
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 1, 2019

In theorizing the break in black radical aesthetics, Fred Moten suggests, "Words don't go there [in Cecil Taylor's Chinampas]. Is it only music, only sound that goes there? Perhaps these notes and phrases will have mapped the terrain and traversed (at least some of) the space between here and there" (In the Break, 42). Moten claims that black radical aesthetics enact a generative rupture, break, or cut that create space for black aesthetic practices. This panel will consider any theorization of rupture or the break in black expressive practices with a special consideration of papers that address the break between black musical and literary practices.

Update - Speculative Fiction – SAMLA – November 15-17, 2019

Lisa Wenger Bro / Speculative Fiction Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 20, 2019

Speculative fiction covers a broad range of narrative styles and genres.  The cohesive element that pulls works together under the category is that there is some “unrealistic” element, whether it’s magical, supernatural, or a futuristic/technological development: works that fall into the category stray from conventional realism in some way.   For this reason, speculative fiction can be quite broad, including everything from fantasy and magical realism to horror and science fiction—from China Miéville to Margaret Atwood to Philip K. Dick. This panel aims to explore those unrealistic elements and all their varied implications about society, politics, economics, and more.

Most of us remember what scared us as children: the bumps in the night, the dark alleys, and the monsters, ghouls, and ghosts brimmed with the potential to terrify. The thrill of dodging the terror that waited in the shadows fuels many horror fanatics to return to the theatres, bookstands, and now podcasts to relive youthful feelings of dread. It should be no surprise, then, that youth horror media is pervasive. From Goosebumps and the upcoming release of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark to Nickelodeon’s Are You Afraid of the Dark? and the CBBC’s Creeped Out, there is an abundance of media that introduces children to the horror genre.

More people apprehend the past through historical novels, from Walter Scott to Jean Plaidy, than through any formal history.David Lowenthal, The Past is a Foreign Country (1985) 224 Historical fiction has been riding a crest of popularity, and, to a certain degree, it was that popularity that motivated (or forced) the academic study of the genre.

The two world wars of the first half of the twentieth century, World War I (1914-1918) and World War II (1939 - 1945), wrought extraordinary levels of destruction. Much of the artistic production during the period reflected grim and complicated realities, while a number of works of art of the post-war period played a role in the memorialization of the wars or served as critical commentary on the wars’ historical legacies. We are calling for article proposals that explore how art expressed the collective experience and memory of these two monumentally important global conflagrations and of conflicts that occurred in the interwar years.
