Lancaster University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 17, 2019

Glitches are moments of disruption; they represent the exposure of technical process, moving away from the binaries of input and output to consider what comes in-between. The growing ubiquity of interconnected systems prompts a desire to understand such intangible networks around the user, an attempt to try and engage with these digital phenomena as alternate forms of ‘presence’ that cannot help but recourse to anthropocentric terms – virus, cloud, render ghost. The frequent ethereality of such language attempts to visualise, embody, and comprehend the profusion of technical systems that we share the atmosphere with, their very terming gesturing to their spectral protrusion into, ostensibly, ‘our’ reality.

DEADLINE EXTENDED - Matters of State: Bureaucracy, Procedure, and Power in South Asia

updated: 
Tuesday, January 8, 2019 - 10:46am
Princeton South Asia Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 10, 2019

How does ‘the state’ generate material force in everyday life? Over the last four decades, scholars of South Asia have invigorated theorization of the state by resituating Eurocentric accounts in an imperial and postcolonial frame. In recent years, scholars have foregrounded the materiality of state-making by examining the bureaucratic circulation of archival records, minoritized subjects’ encounters with law, the remaking of bodily norms through colonial institutions, transnational flows of aid and expertise, and interplays of routine and exception in governance. “Matters of State” will bring together scholarship that builds on these exciting, interdisciplinary approaches to conceptualize the paradoxes of state power in South Asia.

Perspectives on George Orwell in 2019

 

University College London (UCL)

24-25 May 2019

 

John Rodden closes the preface to his 1989 book, The Politics of Literary Reputation: The Making and Claiming of ‘St. George’ Orwell with the assertion:

                       

Orwell poses unusual, and valuable, difficulties by virtue of the complex, highly personal response to him by readers; and he offers unusual, if complicated, opportunities by his politicized reception and the diversity of his audiences. The rare and auspicious fact is that Orwell has been both an extraordinarily popular serious writer and a critically acclaimed one. (xiii)

Deadline extended! Submissions now due January 28, 2019.

What counts as labor, and who gets to decide? For the 8th Annual Tufts University Women’s Center Symposium on Gender and Culture, we will explore how questions of identity shape our ideas about labor. What kinds of work are men, women, and trans or nonbinary people expected to perform, and for whom? How do various identities and positionalities—like gender, race, class, and sexuality—inform the work we do? And what does it mean to resist gendered, raced, classed, or otherwise invisible labor? How can we reshape our understanding of what is work and what work matters?
