CAPACIOUS Affect Inquiry/Making Space Conference - August 8 to 11, 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018

This stream explores how the orientations of affect might make space for alternative conceptions of feminism’s narratives, methods, and temporalities. It draws from the productive dialogue that has emerged between feminist and affect studies especially in the new millennium, and attends to the discursive politics that shape the stories (Hemmings 2005, 2011) by which feminism has come to be known. The focus of this stream is twofold, and attempts to trace the affinities between its concurrent, overlapping lines of inquiry as follows.

The definition of research data is as encompassing as the field of grey literature. What should be included and what should be excluded is and remains an issue of concern. Research data can be defined as factual materials collected by diverse communities of practice required to validate findings. While the majority of research data is created in digital format, research data in other formats cannot be excluded. The formats in which research data appear are multiple and the types of research data are diverse. This also holds for the numerous document types in which grey literature appear published.

deadline for submissions:

As anyone who has watched Eurovision can attest, the music festival often becomes a spectacle of nationalisms. It is an international space onto which all participating nations proclaim a distinct and valuable musical and artistic contribution to the world stage. Eurovision is not the only media event that allows for such nationalist performances, however. This panel will focus on the performativity of nationalism in Eastern European media events, film, and literature, among other artistic performances. Focusing on these texts, this panel aims to create dialogue between performances and the mediums of their development.

“Early Modern English Literature”

Early modern English authors (c. 1453-1789) wrote in a period of unprecedented national and international political, cultural, social, religious, and scientific changes. Literature in English across a range of traditional and alternative genres reflected, resisted, and redefined these developments. We invite papers that identify and analyse the many forms of evidence of the literary engagement with transformative issues, events, and axes within and outside of the British Isles.

Editors of the number: Elizabeth Sauer (Brock University, Canadá) and Luiz Fernando Ferreira Sá (UFMG)

Submission deadline: April 30th 2018.
