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:

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.

Theorising the Popular Conference 2018

Liverpool Hope University, July 11th-12th 2018

 

The Popular Culture Research Group at Liverpool Hope University is delighted to announce its eighth annual international conference, ‘Theorising the Popular’. Building on the success of previous years, the 2018 conference aims to highlight the intellectual originality, depth and breadth of ‘popular’ disciplines, as well as their academic relationship with and within ‘traditional’ subjects. One of its chief goals will be to generate debate that challenges academic hierarchies and cuts across disciplinary barriers.

MLA 2019: Postcolonial Textual Transactions and Critical Reception

MLA Africa since 1990 Forum
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018

In his 2001 book, The Postcolonial Exotic: Marketing the Margins, Graham Huggan contends that writers from formerly colonized societies negotiate their marginality and the “realpolitik of metropolitan economic dominance” by providing “exotic registers” and making them “palatable” for “predominantly metropolitan audiences” (viii). This non-guaranteed MLA session organized by The Africa Since 1990 forum invites submissions examining literary texts from the Global South that circulate well beyond their immediate contexts of production. To what extent is this circulation due to the exoticism that Huggan elaborates in his book? What other factors may be at work in the appreciation and appropriation of these works in new environments?

The Centre for Textual Studies at De Montfort University in Leicester, England, is running a three-day international conference to  showcase and explore the latest methods for analyzing literary and historical texts using computers. A particular focus will be the ways in which literary and historical scholarship will turn increasingly algorithmic in the future as we invent wholly new kinds of questions to ask of our texts because we have wholly new ways to investigate them. The conference will bring together, and put into fruitful dialogue, scholars using traditional literary and historical methods and those exploring and inventing new computational methods, to their mutual benefit.
