Ontologies: Special issue of The Comparatist

Thursday, January 3, 2019 - 9:23am
The Comparatist
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 1, 2019

We welcome contributions that examine the turn to ontology in the humanities and the social sciences. What does the shift to ontology signify? What is it purporting to correct or overcome? What is its relation to prior turns (such as the linguistic turn and the cultural turn)? Is the turn to ontology an attempt to liberate continental philosophy from its infatuation with language and power, from its obsession with mediation, relationality, and subjectivity? What are the politics of this turn to ontology? Is it more receptive to non-European thought and to the nonhuman? What kind of philosophy or literary theory emerges when ontology is taken as the starting point?  

Topics of interest could include:

Enigmatic Emily: Reassessing Emily Bronte at 200

The year 2018 marks the bicentenary of Emily Brontë’s birth, one of nineteenth century’s most enigmatic and imaginative women writers. Although her greatest claim to fame still rests upon her solo novel Wuthering Heights – a grand saga of passion enacted against the timeless Moors – her poetry also reveals a powerful inner world of imaginative and spiritual bonding with the Supreme Being. Emily and her siblings were an exclusive band who were mostly unschooled, made very few friends in the village, their playgrounds being the open moors at the back of their home and their own vivid imaginations.

Boston University’s American and New England Studies Program is proud to announce a call for papers for its upcoming Graduate Student Conference to be held on April 13, 2019 in Boston, MA.

 

This conference’s theme, “Framing Narratives,” asks people to think through the establishment, circulation, and contestation of the stories that "frame" American life. What stories give shape to, constrain, border, bolster, or animate American visions of selfhood and community? These might be literal stories (or literal frames!), but could also be some of the unspoken, but demonstrably real narratives that shore up national identity.

I am looking for a scholar to write an entry on “Domestic Violence” for Violence in American Society: An Encyclopedia of Trends, Problems, and Perspectives. Unfortunately, I had this entry fall through—someone cancelled last-minute and now I’m scrabbling to find a writer able to take on the subject, which would generally include violence at home, often (but not always) directed at children and spouses. The entry would look at historical, contemporary, and mediated depictions of domestic violence in the United States.

Narrative & Nostalgia: Crusades & American Civil War (DEADLINE EXTENDED)

Thursday, January 10, 2019

Michel-Rolph Trouillot closed his 1995 Silencing the Past by reminding us that “History doesn’t belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it in their own hands.” This is nowhere more true than in two historical periods seldom in conversation - the medieval phenomenon called the “Crusades,” and the 19th-century American Civil War. Scholars here seek to clarify these periods among themselves, while popular audiences voraciously consume these and other retellings of the past, and others on the political left and right “take it in their own hands” by toppling monuments or explicitly evoking these periods as direct predecessors of their own.

Matters of State: Bureaucracy, Procedure, and Power in South Asia

Thursday, January 3, 2019 - 9:11am
Princeton South Asia Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 4, 2019

How does ‘the state’ generate material force in everyday life? Over the last four decades, scholars of South Asia have invigorated theorization of the state by resituating Eurocentric accounts in an imperial and postcolonial frame. In recent years, scholars have foregrounded the materiality of state-making by examining the bureaucratic circulation of archival records, minoritized subjects’ encounters with law, the remaking of bodily norms through colonial institutions, transnational flows of aid and expertise, and interplays of routine and exception in governance. “Matters of State” will bring together scholarship that builds on these exciting, interdisciplinary approaches to conceptualize the paradoxes of state power in South Asia.

In the “Preface by the Translator” that Margaret Fuller penned for her translation of Goethe’s Tasso, she states: “There are difficulties attending the translation of German works into English which might baffle one much more skillful in the use of the latter than myself. A great variety of compound words enable the German writer to give a degree of precision and delicacy of shading to his expressions nearly impracticable with the terse, the dignified, but by no means flexible English idiom” (Art, Literature and the Drama, p. 355).

Heresy and Free Speech

Seeking Contributions for excommunicated (the newsletter of the International Society for Heresy Studies), Vol. 4, No. 2, 

Every heretic sooner or later faces issues of freedom of speech (or its opposite: censorship). While there may be mute heresies of a ritual nature, most of the time, heresy expresses itself in language, and it would not be termed heresy if this dissenting discourse were not in tension with normative ways of talking about faith, doctrine, and values.
