Call for Papers:

This panel seeks presentations about racial identity/experience and time in modern and contemporary literature, visual-art, and performance cultures, broadly and imaginatively conceived. We are especially interested in papers about irregular conceptions of racialized/black time, such as those that draw on ideas of absurdity or abstractionism to discuss race as it relates to time and phenomenological inquiry, the staging of temporal stasis or acceleration, and questions of audience and presentness, duration, or movement. We welcome presentations about African American expressive practices, but also those that focus on works by artists belonging to other racialized communities.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 1, 2020

SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED: 1 MARCH 2020!!!

The fiftieth anniversary of the death of the eminent Polish philosopher and humanist Roman Ingarden in 2020 is an occasion to launch an international academic debate on his philosophical legacy. Above all, however, it is a unique opportunity to initiate an international debate on current trends in contemporary philosophy. The main aim of the organisers is therefore to furnish an international group of researchers with a convenient space for a free and creative exchange of thoughts, ideas, and views.

The Parliament of the Republic of Poland, convinced of the uniqueness of the work and attitude of the philosopher, established 2020 as the Year of Roman Ingarden.

Persistence in American Drama

updated: 
Monday, January 27, 2020 - 4:18pm
American Theatre and Drama Society & Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 9, 2020

This panel will consider how twentieth century American plays, live performances, masters, or movements in American drama and theatre from any period offer strategies for persistence in an age of mechanical reproduction. How do American plays model, operationalize, and/or resist persistence? Why and how do some theatrical voices persist in the national discourse amid marginalization? For example, papers may wish to consider persistence in American drama within Benjaminian, or other, theoretical context(s) regarding the work of art in an age of mechanical reproduction or live performance’s “aura” in a digital age.

Wednesday, April 29, 2020

For years, the literature on boredom has been crowded with complaints about the scarcity of research on the subject, even though there is a large amount of papers and books on this phenomenon, since philosophers, theologians, sociologists, and writers have reflected on boredom for centuries. The area of cross-disciplinary Boredom Studies has been successfully launched and continued to steadily grow over the last two decades. Whatever domain of reality boredom researchers scrutinize, boredom emerges as a significant part of our daily lives.

The presence of science fiction in university classrooms is by now no longer shocking; the genre has become a mainstay not only in literature and philosophy classrooms but also in STEM fields, as its predictions and extrapolations pose memorable and concrete case studies to explore the societal and ethical implications of technological innovation, as well as interesting practical engineering problems to try to solve with real-world science.

In an increasingly precarious and complicated political, social, and cultural landscape—in academia, in activist spaces, and in everyday life—feminist scholars often find themselves at a crossroad between their professional obligations and their desire to make both their teaching and writing continually relevant to a larger public. Feminist scholars are uniquely positioned to advance public knowledge and help maintain a vibrant cultural awareness of issues affecting women and girls, racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants, indigenous peoples, LGBTQAI individuals, and others adversely affected by the current political climate both in the U.S. and transnationally.
