Reality, Interrupted: New Perspectives on Magical Realism

Saturday, February 10, 2018 - 1:25pm
Liverpool John Moores University
deadline for submissions:

5th July at Liverpool John Moores University

Keynote Speaker: Dr Chris Warnes (St. John's, University of Cambridge)

It has been over twenty years since the publication of Magical Realism: Theory, History, Community (1995), a collection of seminal essays which challenged the perception of magical realism as a form strictly reserved for Latin American writers. The collection instead repositioned magical realism as an international form used by writers from across the globe and to depict a variety of historical contexts. However, Netflix’s critically acclaimed Narcos (2015), a biopic of Pablo Escobar, firmly attributes magical realism to the Latin American context once again, opening with the statement:

Staging motherhood and mothers in British drama across centuries

Due to the ongoing discussions on the value of family in the contemporary world, the subject of motherhood returned to the forefront of public discourse in Europe and incited new polemics on – as is suggested by rightist politics – the natural drive towards maternity. We wish to broaden the research on motherhood and focus on topics and tropes of motherhood, mothers, maternity, and mothering as shown on stage and presented in published/written British drama.

We invite you to send abstracts on literary/dramatic and linguistic/semantic aspects related to the idea of dramatised motherhood. We are particularly looking for papers on:

However, interpretations of the theme are broad and can include national, urban and rural identities, town and country, gender and ethnicity, cultural expressions and local industries, the environment and climate change.

Friday, February 9, 2018 - 11:27am
Graduate Student-TROPOS Association (Michigan State University)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 30, 2018

Under the current political climate, reality is a territory in constant epistemological dispute. The notion itself is frequently addressed throughout different disciplines, such as Literature, Cinema, as well as Physics and Cybernetics, revealing a questioning of power and its representations. Who determines what is real? How do we, as scholars, engage with reality(ies) through our work? How does Academia manage this category of knowledge?

The TROPOS organizing committee welcomes submissions for papers or organized panels in English, French, and Spanish that explore possible answers to these and other questions as represented in cultural production of the Romance World. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

 

MLA 2019 Pitch to Page: Teaching the Publication Process

Claire Sommers, The Graduate Center, CUNY

Thursday, March 1, 2018

Professors have been advised to “publish or perish” for nearly 100 years. First coined in 1927, this phrase warns professors that in order to maintain their jobs, they must publish their work. Publishing has always been central to academia, as it is the primary vehicle through which scholars share their research with a larger audience. Yet, in recent years, academia has changed so that publishing is not reserved for those who are already professors. Instead, publishing has become a requirement for any one who is applying to become a professor, with PhD students being encouraged to publish their research before they have finished their degrees.
