Trash Objects

 

The defining qualities of trash can change from moment to moment.  Who gets to discard detritus, and who is thrown into to the garbage can? Whether referring to cast-off material or undesirable aesthetics and affects, “trash” is designed, regulated, and disposed of by social hierarchies. Consumer culture manufactures trash–both the literal waste that lingers in landfills and the lowbrow schlock produced by executives in corporate boardrooms. But can trash also refuse Western power structures and the white, masculinist heteronorms inherent to them?

http://aim.org.pt/ojs/index.php/revista/announcement/view/38  This thematic dossier focuses on the critical appreciation of particular television series, while also examining the distinctive practice of writing television criticism. Our understanding of television criticism echoes that of Alex Clayton and Andrew Klevan in their edited volume The Language and Style of Film Criticism (Routledge, 2011). It is a form of writing that addresses television series “as potential achievements and wishes to convey their distinctiveness and quality (or lack of it)” (Clayton and Klevan 1).

Critical theories have traditionally problematized the current and past states of our educational institutions. For this year’s conference, however, we ask participants to explore the potential future(s) of educational theory and practice.

What can critical theories tell us about the future of education?

Papers, panels, and workshops addressing any of the following are welcome:

Critical pedagogy, history of education, education and social change, movement pedagogy, philosophy of education, critical theory, Marxist educational research, race and education, gender oppression, or other related themes.

We speak in the name of animals. We kill in the name of pleasure. We think in the name of animals. We subdue the earth in the name of gods. We make them suffer in the name of science. We fight in the name of animals. We abuse in the name of profit. Therefore, we organize a conference - to think, to discuss, to exchange.

Queer Literature, Film, and Theory  

Refusing to define the boundaries of queer theory, Lauren Berlant and Michael Warner argued in 1995 that it “cannot be assimilated to a single discourse, let alone a propositional program.” In the years since, queer theory has, if anything, become more varied in its methods, its approaches, and its objects. What has persisted is a resistance to assimilation, and a refusal to be pinned down, delimited, or reduced to an abstraction.

AIDS: Remains

 

Seeking essays for a future issue of New Centennial Review.

 

What is left of the AIDS crisis? What remains of the urgency with which critical discourses once contested dominant understandings of “AIDS”? In the first decades of the crisis, vital struggles over the meanings, definitions and representations of AIDS sought to unite cultural analysis with cultural activism. What remains now of such struggles? Has contestation become consensus?

This special issue will focus on ideas of reuse and recombination. How were bits and scraps of materials, textual and otherwise, reassembled into new forms in the nineteenth century? To what ends? Essays might consider these issues in relation to images, fabrics, texts, and more. Possible topics could include scrapbooks, patchwork, quotation, citation, illustration, and any and all forms of recombination. Approaches from all disciplines, including literature, art history, history, music, and the history of science and the social sciences, are welcome, as are submissions that cross national boundaries and/or range across the nineteenth century.

Contributions are sought for an interdisciplinary collection of essays on the Hallmark television channels to be published by McFarland & Co. We are interested in a sustained exploration of the television channel and brand as a cultural phenomenon. At the end of 2017, The Washington Postpublished an article entitled “We can’t take any more of 2017, so we’ve turned to the Hallmark Channel in desperation.” The article described men and women – but mostly women – engaging in a particular brand of escapism from the seemingly daily barrage of bad news: watching Hallmark Channel original movies.
