The relationship between the sciences and the humanities is one that is currently marked by tension. Often viewed as distinct in their approaches to collecting and creating data, the two fields rarely come together to combine methodologies and form what could be a powerful symbiosis of qualitative and quantitative research. For our 18th annual conference, the English Graduate Student Organization is especially interested in exploring the past, present, and future relationships between STEM and the humanities.

Patrick Johnson suggested in his article from 2001 entitled "'Quare' Studies, or (Almost) Everything I Know About Queer Studies I Learned from My Grandmother," "'quare'...not only speaks across identities, it articulates identities as well. 'Quare' offers a way to critique stable notions of identity and, at the same time, to locate racialized and class knowledges." Twenty years later, we ask whether southern studies has yet to be fully "quare"-ed.

There are two ways of defining what we mean by the precariat. One is to say it is a distinctive socio-economic group, so that by definition a person is in it or not in it. This is useful in terms of images and analyses, and it allows us to use what Max Weber called an ‘ideal type’. In this spirit, the precariat could be described as a neologism that combines an adjective ‘precarious’ and a related noun ‘proletariat’.

Neoliberalism in Literature and Media Studies [SAMLA 2020]

Monday, June 1, 2020

Over the past seventy years, neoliberal thinkers have strategically reinvented classical liberal ideals in order to privilege a sense of personal freedom over the perceived overreach of government intervention. Once considered a fringe movement, neoliberalism has steadily become the central tenet of American life. It is now nearly impossible, for example, to imagine any mainstream voice espousing tax hikes or championing the sorts of policies enacted under Franklin Delano Roosevelt or Lyndon Johnson. Promises of privatization today trump collective action in virtually every aspect of life. This epistemic shift can be felt far and wide, from politicians to postmodern theorists.

PLATFORM: Theatres of Labour

updated:

Lisa Moravec
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 15, 2020

This forthcoming issue of Platform considers labour through the creation and analysis of theatre and performance. We follow Kathi Weeks’s (2011) contention that the lived experiences of work have thus far received little attention in political and cultural theory and propose that the material and aesthetic space of theatre can illuminate this daily and bodily dimension of work. In theatrical labour, aesthetic considerations link both the practice of making and the practices of performance. Yet, studies of the performance of work have also been critiqued for conflating dimensions of practice and labour (Wikström 2012). With these tensions in mind, this issue aims to examine the various theatres of labour.

Call for papers When Nature Fights Back: Challenges to the Anthropocene and Environmental Narratives X Annual LANGSA Conference

X Annual LANGSA Conference University of Connecticut at Storrs
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 29, 2020

Recent attention has been dedicated to the study of environmental narratives that relate to current threats to the survival of the planet: global warming, environmental catastrophes, the extinction of species, massive migration crises, etc. A multidisciplinary approach to the discourses that have shaped our understanding of the human sciences is necessary in order to challenge the anthropocentric logic that has framed discussions on the topic. The binaries of nature and culture, human and non-human, subject and object, need to be reexamined not as the polar opposites in which they have been traditionally articulated, but as part of a larger complexity.
