Media globalization has transformed the study of Gender Identities and Gender Politics over the past few decades.  Such globalization has given rise not only to new research but also to new media forms that explore such Gender Identities.  As a result, many gender identities are now more widely visible than they were a decade ago—through both representation in texts and actual, real-life encounters.

“Rhetorical Theory”
Las Vegas, 11/12-15, 2020

Chair: Dr. Ryan Leack, USC

“Rhetoric is a coproductive function of circulation in excess of human intention, which collapses rhetoric and persuasion into the rhetorical, a process of world making that extends relationality into future publics.” 

—Byron Hawk, Resounding the Rhetorical (2018)

This panel will explore recent movements in rhetorical theory writ large, either in connection with or apart from composition theory and practice. Special attention will be given to proposals that engage with the conference's theme.

Science, Technology, and Literature During Plagues and Pandemics

 

In The Parasite, Michel Serres argues that “the parasite intervenes, enters the system as an element of fluctuation. It excites it or incites it; it puts into motion, or it paralyzes.” Throughout the world, COVID-19 continues to interrupt and alter daily life while it simultaneously compels governments to rely on technology and science to combat its spread. Configurations is seeking articles that examine intersections of science, technology, and literature with myriad contemporary and historical contexts relevant to COVID-19.

Navigating Chaos: Living the Apocalyptic Dystopia

Hegel wrote that the only thing we can learn from history is that we learn nothing from history, so I doubt the epidemic will make us any wiser. The only thing that is clear is that the virus will shatter the very foundations of our lives, causing not only an immense amount of suffering but also economic havoc conceivably worse than the Great Recession. There is no return to normal, the new “normal” will have to be constructed on the ruins of our old lives, or we will find ourselves in a new barbarism whose signs are already clearly discernible.                          (Slovaj Žižek, Pandemic!)

Contagions and Non-Human Animals: (Re)Viewing Disregarded Species in Real and Imagined Pandemics

The impact of COVID-19 and the threat that it poses to future human experiences has been well-documented in news reports during the past few months. However, now that non-human animals are possible carriers and becoming infected, their experiences, while often overlooked, are nevertheless integrated into the worldwide pandemic.

Thus, this collection seeks to balance essays about non-human animals during real-world pandemics, such as the COVID-19 one, with those of their experiences during literary or cinematic ones. The scope of this call for papers is broad and can include topics such as:

After completing four essays (two with a co-author), which are set to be published in different collections, on COVID-19 Internet memes, this edited collection seeks to include novel perspectives in addition to these to be gathered in a meme-focused volume, especially since online practices and behaviors have become the critical forms of expression during the pandemic.

Topics include but are not limited to:

'Floyding' Institutional Racism

deadline for submissions:

Intellectus invites submissions of research articles, interviews and book reviews that are specifically or broadly related to the focus: "'Floyding' Institutional Racism"

Following the death of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, there are protests, toppling and removal of iconic statues relating to slavery and racism. Despite some acts of reprisals, there seems to be an overwhelming acceptance of the protests and that there is an urgent need for reforms against systemic injustice to black people and/or people of colour. In memory of George Floyd, we refer to the various shows of acceptance as Floyding.

Since 2017, the #metoo movement has been successful for the conviction of Harvey Weinstein, who was at the center of the landmark trial. The same cannot be said in the case of India, which is still coming to terms with the issue of gender-based violence. Our panel will examine the representations of women who have been forgotten or have been rendered invisible in the national and international media discourse. Our panel will examine such representations through the study of South Asian filmic and theatre representations of Dalit (lower-caste), Northeast Indian, and women who were foundational figures in the defining the newly minted nation—India and Pakistan.
