The Condition of Contradiction: Implications for Globalization, Identity & Culture

updated: 
Friday, January 12, 2018 - 4:39am
Saint Louis University, Madrid Spain
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 25, 2018

Call for Papers: The advent of neoliberalism after the 1970s in “core” western economies has unleashed a relatively deregulated and more palpably globalized economy. The results have been convulsive in the socio-economic concomitants and contradictions that have followed. They include: intensified, bare-knuckled class striation alongside tendencies toward intensified tolerance and mixing; finance that moves more readily across borders than (many) flesh-and-blood people; cosmopolitanism alongside re-invigorated identity essentialism; and places and identities stuck between global forces and renewed assertions of localism. And all of it subject to 24-hour globalized, new media display.

The Shifting Landscape of Crime on the German Small Screen

updated: 
Thursday, January 11, 2018 - 9:17am
German Studies Association Annual Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 5, 2018

We are soliciting abstracts for a panel at the German Studies Association Annual Conference in Pittsburgh, PA September 27-30, 2018.

Traditionally the small screen has portrayed danger and crime in the context of the metropolitan, but shows like Weinberg, Dark, Tatort, Polizeiruf 110, among others have increasingly shifted the focus to suburbs, small-towns, and countryside infringing on the tranquility of these supposedly safe spaces. These shows expose the deviance and intrigue of non-metropolitan locales. Does this conflict move from the city and into the small-town or have these towns always maintained an undercurrent of menace, of which we are just now aware?
