In/Visible: Designs of Social Experience

The regimes of Whiteness, heteronormativity, androcentrism, able-bodiedness or Eurocentrism have for a long time constituted the frameworks of ‘proper’, ‘successful’ or expected social conduct, organising in a normative way social communication, relations and spaces. The regimes have been shaping social life, state policies and institutions, or fields of science and arts. Social practices are imbued with preconceptions concerning race, sexuality, gender, health or ethnicity which have become so commonsensical that it takes a lot of critical effort to go beyond the normative context.

#AltAc. It stands for Alternate Academia and is more than just a trending hashtag nowadays, it's  also a pursuit for many trained academics. With dire  statistics for how many Ph.D. graduates will be offered a life-sustaining position within the institution of academia, many academics are creating media offshoots of their research and translating their work into social media venues for a variety of reasons: to leverage for a paid position, for the creativity of increased perspectives, for the opportunities that new medias present, and for the very same reason that colleges exist - to educate the public and make research and intellectualism affordable and accessible.

Cultures of Sexuality

Since the sexual abuse allegations against American film producer Harvey Weinstein in Oct 2017, the #metoo movement has received wide attention on social media and in public life. What this movement has reminded us is sexual abuse is deeply implicated in social/hierarchical power structures (forcing survivors to suffer violence and then hide trauma). It has also offered the possibility of speaking against sexual abuse, harassment, and violence in public and “shaming” perpetrators (as “due process” has often been painful, slow, and unfair). The movement has led to public debates on questions of patriarchy, power, nepotism, culture, clothing, ethics, and ideology.

Making Games Matter Call for Papers

2022 Special Issue of the peer-reviewed journal, Computers and Composition

Games are often seen as mere diversions even as, with smart phones, they play an increasingly ubiquitous role in our lives. For instance, even when we are not playing games, we often use apps and social media spaces that use game logics to gamify their use. While Ian Bogost (2011) has famously coined the term “exploitationware” to refer to the corporate use of badges and points to lure customers into using their products, arguing that accruing points is the least interesting part of any game, these gamified digital spaces and apps still play a rhetorically material force in our lives.

COMMUNITY FORMING UNDER THE CAPITALOCENE

SAMLA 92
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 3, 2020

Jason Moore in his introduction to Anthropocene or Capitalocene? (2016) remarks, “Capitalocene signifies capitalism as a way of organizing nature’s a multispecies, situated, capitalist world-ecology.” Capitalocene, therefore, stands for a motion, a reproducing technology, that manifests and re-manifests human life and relationalities between human and nature under the logic of aggressive material dispossessions and accumulations. The examinations and resistance against the functioning of capitalocene are especially crucial in facing the public health crisis one would remember as the COVID-19 and the racial conflicts intertwine with its narrative with the perception of the pandemic.

Confronted by the 2020 public health crisis one would remember as COVID-19, the notion of Orientalism as proposed by Edward Said in 1979 calls for continuous examinations. Said defines Orientalism as “not an airy European fantasy about the Orient, but a created body of theory and practice in which, for many generations, there has been a considerable materials investment.” From the trade war and technology race between the U.S.

Literature of Crisis and Apocalypse PAMLA Panel

Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 7:16am

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Apocalyptic literature and its study have typically centered around notions of Christian eschatology, i.e. the judgement presented in the Book of Revelations. However, the aftermath of the second world war helped reshape our notions of this genre. Apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries has begun to examine the relations between humans and the Earth during the Anthropocene. Images of global thermonuclear war, fears of communism, and a burgeoning climate change (with its subsequent and constituent crises) have eclipsed the teleological notions of divine creation and its eventual, inexorable movement towards eschatology.

Don DeLillo and Religious Spaces PAMLA Panel

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 15, 2020

The Don DeLillo Society invites abstracts on DeLillo's use of space, virtual or physical, as new religious sites. From Jack Gladney's transcendent trips to the supermarket in White Noise to Sister Edgar's implied dissolution into the virtual heaven of the internet in Underworld, religious spaces proliferate throughout DeLillo's work. Yet in contrast to the religious experience, DeLillo also suggests a destructive inversion: The Airborne Toxic Event, The Kazakh Test Site. Characters often undertake pilgrimages to mid-Western towns, art exhibits, weapons testing sites, and even city dumps. In each of these excursions, characters seek to understand a sociality between themselves and the contexts they inhabit.

Latin American Gothic Literature in its Early Stages: Trappings, Tropes, and Theories (NeMLA 2021)

Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 7:14am
NeMLA Conference 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

The Gothic is having a moment, as it tends to do in times of collective panic and uncertainty. Even Latin America, whose geographical, linguistic and historical distinctiveness have supported its all-but-exclusion from global Gothic Studies, has experienced a rise in scholarship on contemporary Gothic horror—from studies on the double and hybridity to zombies and cannibals, among others. Typically excluded from this narrative, however, are theories on the origins and early representations of the Gothic, and how regional, linguistic and historical particularities nourished a Latin American Gothic tradition that, although indebted to its European Gothic predecessors, deviated from it in unique and meaningful ways.

This session invites those who have experience in research, course development and/or teaching with partners from another discipline to share how to (and perhaps how not to!) build and sustain those relationships. We are interested in hearing about triumphs as well as learning from less successful attempts. The organizers (a mathematician and a humanist) will discuss their own roller coaster experiences co-leading Humanistic STEM, a major, highly interdisciplinary, project at their university and invite participants to share their own stories.
