Working-Class Literature in Finland and Finnish America

In 2019, September 20–22, the site for FinnFest USA is Detroit, Michigan, the United States capital of the automobile industry. People of Finnish origin have been a part of this industry, creating a significant Finnish community in Detroit between the 1920s and the 1950s. Even today, Detroit remains one of the largest metropolitan regions in the United States for people of Finnish origin. Finnish Americans were an integral part of the industrial history of the United States and deeply engaged in urban America and its factory work.

#UsToo: Intersectional Approaches to Subversion and Resistance

March 23, 2019

Subversion and resistance have become two main preoccupations for our current Western society, where social media movements like #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter are empowering some who have routinely been silenced in a variety of ways to “speak out” against their oppressors. Throughout the recent history of civilizations, dominant racial, sexed/gendered, linguistic, and religious power structures have discouraged and/or impeded oppressed peoples from speaking out; nevertheless, they have persisted.

Scholars from a variety of backgrounds have demonstrated how the world’s oceans challenge dominant epistemologies (Steinberg 2013; DeLoughrey 2017), demanding new approaches that are both contingent and interdisciplinary. In their manifesto, Our Mother Ocean (2014), Mariarosa Dalla Costa and Monica Chilese detail how large segments of the seawaters of this planet have been privatized and toxified, driving ocean-going life forms (both human and non-human) to extinction or relocation.

Saturday, January 26, 2019

This 2019 annual meeting theme, “build as we fight,” reminds us that revolutions necessarily entail a double investment, both in negating domination and exploitation and affirming alternative forms of life. The theme also leaves open the possibility that the relationship between what must be built and what must be fought might be one of conviviality or convergence, rather than clear-cut opposition.

“Ours is essentially a tragic age, so we refuse to take it tragically. The cataclysm has happened, we are among the ruins, we start to build up new little habitats, to have new little hopes. It is rather hard work: there is now no smooth road into the future: but we go round, or scramble over the obstacles. We’ve got to live, no matter how many skies have fallen.”

In 1974, in the shadow of the Vietnam War and amidst the economic and political retrenchments of post-1968, Ursula K. Le Guin published The Dispossessed. The novel’s radical innovation of the narrative utopia, with its unblinking acknowledgment of the form’s conceptual as well as practical limits, paradoxically revitalized and reactivated utopia’s uncompromising social vocation for an emphatically anti-utopian era.

Questions about the limits of the bodily and conceptualizations of liminality as well as interdisciplinary papers are of particular interest.
