Talking about different political slogans that she has written for different eras, namely “Cyborgs for Earthly Survival” during Reagan’s era, “Run fast Bite Hard” for father Bush’s era and “Shut up and Train” for George W. Bush’s presidency , Donna Haraway declares that today her slogan is “Stay with the Trouble!” (137) Amidst the very real and imminent threats of environmental disasters, rise of racism, and an expanding precarity, it is in fact very hard to stay with the trouble rather than going elsewhere to save ourselves.

Chinua Achebe's No Longer at Ease at 60 (for Northeast Modern Language Association 5-8 March 2020)

As Chinua Achebe's second novel, No Longer at Ease, first published in 1960, arrives at its 60th anniversary, scholars have an opportunity to reassess its significance not only for African literature, but also for world literature in general. The story is set in the 1950's and richly depicts the cultural tensions of African societies nearing independence from Great Britain. It forecasts both the optimism and the disappointment that would characterize post-independence Africa. In dramatizing the fortunes of the Okonkwo family in rural Nigeria and Lagos, No Longer at Ease forms a sequel to Achebe's first and most famous novel, Things Fall Apart (1958), but is not as widely read and discussed as its predecessor.

CFP: Cine-feminisms and the Academy Symposium

UNSW Sydney, 12-13th December 2019

 

The contemporary media landscape is shaped by increasing precarity and awareness of gendered issues. The global screen industry is grappling with the cultural and industrial shifts precipitated by the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. For some, the Harvey Weinstein revelations and subsequent scandal resulted in a re-evaluation of the gendered operation of Hollywood. The industry has responded on the red carpet, through the media and in film festival juries. What role do – and can – forms of film feminisms (or cine-feminism) play within this context?

In a letter written to Jacques Derrida in 1982, Gilbert Simondon poses a question to the project of deconstruction: “Why not think about founding and perhaps even provisionally axiomatizing an aesthetico-technics or techno-aesthetics?” Aesthetic thought has for too long remained at the level of subjective contemplation, which effaces any substantive understanding of technology’s effects upon the larger cultural sphere. The technical and the aesthetic, Simondon contends, should instead be understood as a “continuous spectrum” of experience, as each are composed of a “set of sensations” that emerge as matter is transformed, whether by the artist, the engineer, the designer, or the machinist.

Reading Politics and Art in the Poetry of Tracy K. Smith (NEMLA 2020 Panel)

CFP for the 51st Annual NEMLA Conference in Boston, Massachusetts, March 5 - 8, 2019

Tracy K. Smith, with four books of poetry, a volume of memoirs, a Pulitzer Prize and two stints as America's poet laureate, has every claim to be a major American poet at the pinnacle of success. It is easy to dwell on the mainstream acceptance that this success has earned. Her work is often described in highly aesthetic language, with an emphasis on its beauty and craft, and she sits neatly in the American poetic tradition. Among those poets she considers “most necessary” she invokes Seamus Heaney, Elizabeth Bishop, and Philip Larkin (Ordinary Light 336).
