Academic Freedom and Academic Lives

 

The concept of “academic freedom”—always contested—has been muddied, polarized, and done violence to in recent years. This special cluster of Biography: An Interdisciplinary Quarterly invites contributions from a variety of perspectives that seek to illuminate the politics of academic freedom and censorship in the face of rapidly escalating racist, xenophobic, anti-semitic, Islamophobic, sexist, misogynist political currents. Essays connected to personal experience, or that situate questions of academic freedom within the problem of experience as a category of scholarship and public knowledge, are particularly welcome and encouraged.

14th Annual Carleton Communication Graduate Caucus Conference

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

 

Is progress always … progressive? Or can progression and regression occupy the same space? According to anthropologist Brian Larkin (2008), “progress can thus be seen as a mode of social ordering, of governmentality in Foucault’s sense that power works not by repression but by incorporation and internalizing modes of rule.” In other words, the tools of innovation often reimagine dominant ideologies with both positive and negative effects.

Special Issue on Amiri Baraka

updated: 
Wednesday, December 12, 2018 - 4:58am
Journal of American Studies of Turkey (JAST)
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 1, 2019

This issue of JAST will be dedicated to the works and legacy of Amiri Baraka—poet, dramatist, essayist and activist. Formerly known as LeRoi Jones, Amiri Baraka entered the Greenwich Village literary scene in 1957 as one of the most original poets and editors of the new writing and poetry that was emerging outside of academia and the established publishing world. Baraka’s profound and pointed criticism took shape in the milieu of the racial brutality of the 1960s, and continued to transform as Black Power was put into practice. Amidst assassinations and urban rebellions, he retreated to his hometown, Newark, New Jersey, and committed himself to African American cultural expression in the broadest sense of the term.

This panel invites interdisciplinary thinkers to transcend standardized methodologies for teaching and learning about the environment.  The ASLE Biennial Conference (themed 'Paradise on Fire') will be held at University of California, Davis, from June 26-30, 2019.

Paradise is burning - or melting, flooding, or otherwise collapsing.  In actuality, these collapses are simultaneous, or convergent as Christian Parenti has termed it.  Or, as a recent article states, "when the Arctic melts, the West burns."

American Literature in the World Graduate Conference, Yale University, April 5, 2019

updated: 
Monday, December 10, 2018 - 10:23pm
Yale University, Department of English
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 15, 2018

The conference hopes to broaden the scope of American literature, opening it to more complex geographies, and to a variety of genres and media. The impetus comes partly from a survey of what is currently in the field: it is impossible to read the work of Toni Morrison and Teju Cole, Bei Dao and Rita Dove, Tony Kushner and Lynn Nottage, Joan Didion and Ta-Nehisi Coates without seeing that, for all these authors, the reference frame is no longer simply the United States, but a larger, looser, more contextually varied set of coordinates, populated by laboring bodies, migrating faiths, generational sagas, memories of war, as well as the accents of unforgotten tongues, the taste and smell of beloved foods and spices.

DECADENCE [Call for Papers/Reviews]

updated: 
Saturday, December 8, 2018 - 10:55am
University College London, Dept of English [Moveable Type, Vol. 11 (Summer 2019)]
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 1, 2019

Montesquieu's assertion that the fall of the Roman Empire could be attributed to a decline in morality and deviation from Classical ideals redefined the term “décadence.” From a neutral term for “decline,” decadence transformed into a laden pejorative signifying perversity and decay, as well as a warning against the dangers of excess and the pursuit of pleasure. Perceived as a disruptive force, dangerous to social order and bourgeois normativity, the threat of decadence is still invoked in modern political rhetoric to stoke anxieties over shifts in traditional values and social mores, as well as the looming threat of an irretrievable loss of geopolitical power.
