Ghost Stories: Hauntings and Echoes in Literature and Culture
27-29 January 2012

How do ghosts of the past figure in literature, theatre, film, television, and other texts and cultural artifacts? How do familial, imperial, social, linguistic, or national legacies influence artists and their work? How do texts "remember" historical events or other texts? Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

Children of Men: Childhood in Narratives of Crisis and Catastrophe (March 29-April 1)

updated: 
Tuesday, October 18, 2011 - 4:28pm
American Comparative Literature Association Annual Meeting, Brown University

This seminar will consider the figure of the child as a means to focalize and narrativize personal or collective catastrophe. What are the ethics of rendering historical or political trauma visible through the eyes of a child? How might this particular mode of representation suggest the possibility of recuperation of incomprehensible events? What are the affective qualities generated by such narratives? How might a child protagonist authorize problematically cathartic or sentimental responses to these events?

"Automation and Catastrophe" (March 29-April 1, 2012), deadline for proposals November 15

American Comparative Literature Association

From Jacques de Vaucanson's eighteenth-century defecating duck to robots to weaponized military drones, automation has long been a significant site of fascination and fear. This panel will explore automation using a wide lens – one that includes aesthetic representations of, for example, automated machines, animals, and humans, as well as theories of automation, labor, and technology. Specifically, this panel seeks to investigate the narratives and rhetorics of catastrophe and crisis that frequently accompany automation: from fears of dehumanization through our engagement with automated machines, to threats of the automation of our labor, production, consumption, and desires.
