 The Future of Film: Will Television Kill the Cinema Star?

This roundtable explores the collapsing of the separate media concepts of film and television as "TV" becomes more filmic than film, more cinematic than movies themselves.  We are witnessing the confluence of production values, means of production, narrative form and style, and the ways in which content is consumed, reviewed, funded, and awarded. The two media have seemingly become synchronous, simultaneous and potentially interchangeable.  This Roundtable will focus on film, television, and streaming content, and the places that they will inhabit and occupy in the future of visual media and the cultural imagination.

ACLA 2020: Literary Diagnosis and the Anti-Medical Humanities

UPDATE: Work on international and/or non-English authors especially welcome!!

With Health Humanities programs on the rise and medical memoirs flooding our bookshelves, it is easy to forget that the alliances forged between literary representation and medical discourse are new and fragile. Writers from a multitude of traditions have frequently squared off against doctors for the right to diagnostic prominence, particularly in capturing the "essence" of disease and the dis-eased body/mind. Their motivations, meanwhile, have spanned from the starkly political to the intensely personal.

From the Margins to the Center: Reevaluating “Tradition” in English Studies

Graduate Student Symposium ft. keynote by Ariana Brown

February 22, 2020

University of Texas at San Antonio

 

“Enslaved Black folk couldn’t lift shackled feet,

so instead they shuffled

& invented the cumbia—

& you can’t tell me there aren’t many ways to survive,

to remember the dead,

to make a freedom where there isn’t one.”

Excerpt from Ariana Brown, “Cumbia,” published in the Acentos Review, 2019

Toni Morrison: The Emancipation Proclamation of the English Language

NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

In the documentary, The Pieces I Am by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, David Carrasco calls Toni Morrison, “the Emancipation Proclamation of the English language.” The parallelism he conjures between the historical document and grandeur that is Morrison hints at the idea that she could do what Abraham Lincoln’s indenture could not: Toni Morrison frees black people from fake identities. Laced with the assurance that if others knew what she knows,—that prejudice exists in a hyperreality created by those who need it in order to define their purpose—black people will not accept perceived realities as their own; that their lives have meaning, and their stories can take center stage.

The genre turn in global literature has inspired scholarship exploring the relationship between generic form and contemporary themes. In addition to Caren Irr’s Toward the Geopolitical Novel (2014), which investigates the newly emerging genre of the international political novel, and Theodore Martin’s Contemporary Drift (2017), a comprehensive analysis of contemporary genre fiction and filmwe have also seen scholarship tracking specific genre forms: Contemporary Literature’s 2006 special issue, Immigrant Fictions; Jeremy Rosen’s 2018 article “Literary Fictions and the Genres of Genre Fiction” in Post45; and Sheri-Marie Harrison’s 2019 series Global Horror in Post45, to name a few.

Twenty-first century media have seen a rise not only in remakes and “re-imaginings” (television series like Hawaii 5-0 or Battlestar Galactica, video games like Tomb Raider, or films like Ghostbusters) but also transmedia adaptations (comic book series becoming television becoming video games, board games and Hallowe’en costumes, a la The Walking Dead), works based in nostalgic callback (Ready Player One, Wreck-it Ralph), fan-written versions of media (Fifty Shades of Grey is fan fiction of Twilight) and genre-bending remixes (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies).

Aristotle à rebours:

Unconventional Aristotelianism in Medieval Italy and Beyond

Sponsored by Italians & Italianists at Kalamazoo

ICMS Kalamazoo 2020, May 7-10


 

Aristotle’s transformation from heretical source to intellectual authority testifies to the fact that his scholastic assimilation was uneven and often controversial, and it is the aim of this panel to explore those figures whose Aristotelianism has been perceived, by either their contemporaries or their scholars, as historically peculiar or unorthodox.

Complicity [ACLA 2020]

In recent years, subtle discussions of beneficiaries (Bruce Robbins), bystanders (Robert Meister), spectators (Luc Boltanski), and implicated subjects (Michael Rothberg) have drawn attention to the political, ethical, and aesthetic imperatives emanating from occupying positions of complicity in structures propped up by historical injustice. While much of this scholarship zeroes in on atrocities and events of historical significance, Robbins and Meister, at least, also wedge open space for considering complicity at the level of everyday life. What does it mean for someone to feel depressed by diagnosis of climate catastrophe? To feel overwhelmed by capitalism? To desire escape routes in the face of resurgent racist nationalisms around the world?

Poetry and Identity: Shaping and Sharing the Trauma of Displacement (NeMLA 2020 - Panel)

updated: 
Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - 5:13pm
Lucie HOUDU (for a 2020 NeMLA Panel)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel will broach the topic of shaping a poetic identity through the prism of a traumatic experience of displacement. How does the poet present a disturbing personal history on the page? Coming from one place and being forcibly moved to another also involves confronting a different language and culture: how is such an occurrence translated to the page? Is poetry a space where cultures and languages clash with one another, or does the expression effect a reconciliation? How does this potential blend of languages and cultural references (including code-switching and code-mixing) inscribe a troubled identity, trying to reconstitute oneself via a poetic text?
