UCD Humanities Institute Postgraduate Scholars Conference
Conference date Thursday 27th September 2018
Whether framed as divergent (Ramos), cruel (Franco), subaltern (Saldívar, ed), vanguardist (Sanders), multiple and baroque (Bolívar Echeverría), kaleidoscopic (Schelling), contradictory and hybrid (García Canclini), truncated (Roniger), enchanted (Morello et all), or with a dark side (Mignolo), discussions of modernity have predominated in the field of Latin American Studies. These deep explorations into the nature of modernity have also shown a particular preference for spatiality, a visual category which privileges a critical vocabulary that seeks to map, survey, visualize, and picture a series of landscapes and territories.

This panel welcomes abstracts on any aspect of humor and activism in America. By May 16, 2018, please submit a 250-word abstract, brief biographical statement (inclusive of academic affiliation and contact information), and A/V requirements to Autumn Lauzon, The University of North Carolina at Pembroke, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This panel is an affiliated session with SAMLA 90 (November 2-4, 2018 in Birmingham, Alabama).
The AIDS crisis in France and Francophone countries has seen the emergence of a “littérature SIDA,” as well as artistic expressions through various media such as photography or films. On August 23rd 2017, the movie 120 battements par minute (BPM), shed a light on the first years of activism of Act Up-Paris in the early 1990s. In April 2018, France Culture’s radio show LSD, La série documentaire, dedicated four days to the topic “Quand la création raconte le SIDA.” Despite the medical advances, both the movie and radio show reminded viewers and listeners of a duty to remember the AIDS crisis. This panel will focus on the representations of AIDS and the accompanying activism in literature, cinema and arts from French and Francophone artists.
The 116th annual conference of the Pacific Ancient & Modern Language Association (PAMLA) will be held at the idyllic Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington, from Friday, November 9, to Sunday, November 11.
The Birmingham meeting place of SAMLA 90 and the conference theme, “Fighters from the Margins: Socio-Political Activists and Their Allies,” suggests the extent to which social justice has replaced literary aesthetics as the driving force of literary classroom pedagogy. While our classrooms may still be filled with analysis of irony, depth, and complexity, it is certainly true that the intersectional barriers to social justice have become an animating force in the analysis of literature. The questions this panel wants to ask include:
SAMLA 90: Fighters from the Margins: Socio-Political Activists and Their Allies
November 2–4, 2018 ◆ Sheraton Birmingham ◆ Birmingham, Alabama
While historically a product of birthright, and more recently associated with merit, social class has always presented itself as a set of expectations setting the stage for encounters between unfamiliar people. Whether sincerely or in masquerade, everyone adopts a social class as a role to be played before an audience. In line with this year’s conference theme “Acting, Roles, and Stages,” this panel, examines social class as performance and focuses on literary works across genres and eras that present class accordingly. From estates satire to the minstrel show, from social realism to the theater of the absurd, we will consider ways that literature either enacts the performance of class or dramatizes its enactment.
This two-day interdisciplinary symposium will look at how American literature was taken up into French culture over a fifty-year period bounded by two defining moments in French-US relations: 1917, when the US entered World War I, and 1967, when NATO troops withdrew from French soil.
Conference Dates: October 18th-19th, 2018.
Keynote Speaker: Richard T. Rodriguez, University of California, Riverside

Emmanuel Levinas writes extensively about the temptations of knowledge and the seductions of intelligibility and intentional consciousness as they enable a fascination for ontology, power, and war. For nearly 13 years, the North American Levinas Society has worked to preserve and focus this critique through social apertures that privilege questions of historical violence, transgenerational suffering, memory and repair.
