Citation is the 2019 edition of the European Artistic Research Network (EARN) conference. During it we will explore the pluralised viewpoint that our contemporary critical methods demand, addressing the ways in which artist-researchers or curatorial practices take positions on or emphasise shifting patterns of coexistent temporalities within the historical, social, political and economic contexts of contemporary visual culture. Contributions will address questions such as:

The Soviet director Sergei Eisenstein initiated what has become a very long and multifaceted conversation about James Joyce in relation to film.  He was the first director to contemplate an adaptation of Ulysses, for instance, and the only one to discuss such a project with the author himself. Although that adaptation project never came to fruition, Eisenstein was the first film theorist who used Ulysses and Finnegans Wake as reference points to describe how film worked and how it might continue to evolve in the future. He was also the first filmmaker to apply these concepts in practice.

The proposed panel will analyze the relationship of music and music performance and the text within various national literatures, from 19th century to present day, by offering an overview of the different methodological approaches to this topic and investigating the role of music in literature. We invite a broad range of papers devoted to the analysis of the complex interplay of the two art forms, aesthetic and cultural interactions between music and literature, audience and performers, the nature of creativity, the image of the artist, and the role of music in the specific texts, as well as the broader topics of integrating a musical performance within the narrative form.

On November 9, 1989, the East Berlin's Communist Party announced that citizens of the GDR were free to cross the country’s borders, leading to speculations of a “world without borders.” Yet, as Elisabeth Vallet argues, a renewed emphasis on wall-building since this epoch-marking event has become a “global phenomenon.”[1] As this trend is gaining new momentum with the recent electoral victories of nationalist populists across Europe, in Israel and in Trump’s United States, borders are fortified and walls built to “protect” polities or to keep out refugees and migrants.

Talking about different political slogans that she has written for different eras, namely “Cyborgs for Earthly Survival” during Reagan’s era, “Run fast Bite Hard” for father Bush’s era and “Shut up and Train” for George W. Bush’s presidency , Donna Haraway declares that today her slogan is “Stay with the Trouble!” (137) Amidst the very real and imminent threats of environmental disasters, rise of racism, and an expanding precarity, it is in fact very hard to stay with the trouble rather than going elsewhere to save ourselves.

Chinua Achebe's No Longer at Ease at 60 (for Northeast Modern Language Association 5-8 March 2020)

As Chinua Achebe's second novel, No Longer at Ease, first published in 1960, arrives at its 60th anniversary, scholars have an opportunity to reassess its significance not only for African literature, but also for world literature in general. The story is set in the 1950's and richly depicts the cultural tensions of African societies nearing independence from Great Britain. It forecasts both the optimism and the disappointment that would characterize post-independence Africa. In dramatizing the fortunes of the Okonkwo family in rural Nigeria and Lagos, No Longer at Ease forms a sequel to Achebe's first and most famous novel, Things Fall Apart (1958), but is not as widely read and discussed as its predecessor.

Over a period of about four centuries, many millions of Africans were shipped to the Americas and forced into slavery. Slavery developed in the colonial period, emerged in the age of the American Revolution, and expanded widely in the antebellum South, reaching its heyday between 1830 and 1860.
