Right now survivors’ voices are being heard at protest rallies, speak outs, and academic conferences across the country.

COMICS/FANDOM

University of Cologne, 28/03/2019 – 29/03/2019

 

Considering how crucially comic book marketing depends on loyal customers, especially fans, and to how great an extent the ever-expanding franchises surrounding Marvel’s or DC’s comic worlds rely on user participation and fandom, it seems striking that the connection between Comics Studies and Fan Studies has hardly been explored in any great detail so far.

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).

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?

The Theme

This year’s theme is an opportunity to reflect on how you have come to know your research through the varying ways it has been shared and presented.

Emerging out of the Without End 2018 symposium theme of ‘the documents in which research ideas are inspired and found’, the Without End 2019 symposium, now moves on to how we are tasked with collecting these ideas in to the propositions we can share. It is about how we, as postgraduate and early career researchers, can begin to breach discourse in numerous ways and the effects this can bring.

This edited volume will examine intersections of Design and Gender across a range of historical moments, political environments and material categories. We invite readings and materialist critiques of designed objects, exchanges, spaces, instruments, affects and styles as well as evaluations of ‘design practice’ as gendered work, performance, or representation. Of particular interest: contemporary design theory, transnational design events, ecological design, new technocentric or scientific design, posthuman material culture and local design archaeologies as they relate to the politics of gender and agency in our post-millennial era.
