From abolitionist literature to antiwar painting, from documentary photography to committed filmmaking, the arts have been tools of resistance to dominant ideologies. Artistic practices provide people with a means of dissent in democratic and/or authoritarian societies. Under the cover of visual or poetic metaphors, artists imagine alternative realities that can be read as arts of resistance. The world has witnessed in the postwar era a proliferation of artistic trends, a constant re-evaluation of what constitutes a work of art, a multiplicity of experimentations and explorations, not to mention an ever-increasing diversity of media available to express the artist’s ideas.

ASEEES 2019 Panel - Sino-East European Relations during the Cold War and the Non-Alignment Movement

The Cold War is often historicized as a struggle between two opposing ideological camps with the United States and Russia at the helm, vying for political and economic control of Eurasia. Such historiography relies on a binary that is used to divide the world geo-politically, economically, and culturally, and ignores the intertwined histories of international socialism, personality cults, and local solidarity campaigns in Eastern Europe and Eurasia. Studies have focused on the distribution of Soviet influence over Central and Eastern Europe, but there are less well documented histories of the formal and informal circulation of ideas, people, and images from China into and about Eastern Europe through the communist/socialist and non-aligned networks.

Proposed Special Session for MLA 2020 in Seattle (Jan. 9-12)

The upcoming 2020 MLA Conference is being held in Seattle, Jimi Hendrix's hometown, 50 years after his death in 1970.

To mark this meeting, we welcomes proposals about the significance of Hendrix and his music to cultural and literary studies, including how his legacy continues to infuse and inspire artists, writers, and scholars. We are especially interested in papers that tie his music to larger movements of black expression, such as blues traditions, black radical aesthetics, or the Black Arts Movement, as well as other innovative analyses inspired by affect theory and performance studies.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 10, 2019

Since the arrival of the first European colonists on the North American continent, frontiers have served as powerful forces within the public imagination. Often characterized as lawless hinterlands, frontiers call boundaries into question and operate largely independently of,  yet in juxtaposition with, larger units--imperial, national, cultural, racial--in which they are classified. For this proposed panel to the Charles Brockden Brown Society Annual Conference in Lexington, Kentucky from October 3-5, 2019, we invite proposals exploring any facet of the utility of frontiers, or borderlands, to protest or revise social or cultural ideas from the colonial period to the present.

Old and Middle English Language and Literature: Medieval Merging of Old and New Knowledge and Practice

Tuesday, January 29, 2019 - 8:57am
Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 5, 2019

The coexistence in practice though not always in name of sometimes very different knowledges is both an ancient and modern concern. The Middle Ages saw the development of the concept of translatio studii alongside a growing interest in translation from other languages and cultures, both ancient and contemporary. At its core, translatio studii is the absorption of knowledge or practice from one culture into another, resulting in a text or practice that presents itself as part of the dominant culture, but retains something of its origins as well.

Taking stock: Romanian Culture 1989-2019

MLA 2020 conference, Seattle, USA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 15, 2019

In 2019, Romania celebrates 30 years since the Revolution. This landmark date compels us to reflect on the radical changes that have occurred in Romanian society and culture since 1989. How have freedom of expression, efforts to reinstate a democratic society, and the country’s accession to the European Union impacted cultural production (literature, cinema, art)? How is Romanian cultural identity negotiated in the national, supranational (European), and global marketplaces? Despite being considered “small” or “minor,” Romanian culture has acquired great visibility in Europe, while it still requires faster dissemination outside Europe (e.g. in the United States). How should cultural institutions ensure its translation and promotion more effectively?

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 15, 2019

The world has started to change drastically and everything seems to be a ganie of chance, as higher powers and accountability are amok. The more changes occur, the more everything seems to be going in a circle. The games, sins and powers, like the Mafia, have and continue to shape societies. This is a time when we are faced with looking to the past for potential answers and at unlikely sources for guidance. The goal for this conference is to examine these three tenets and create a conversation about Latin American and Iberian literature from all centuries and genres where either one or all have shaped people, places and beliefs. Ultimately, what was the result and what answers and guidance can be found?
