SEMINAR PAPERS FOR THE FOLLOWING SEMINAR AT NEMLA CONVENTION 2015:

Philip K. Dick: Literary and Cinematic Visions for the Twenty-First Century

This seminar seeks papers that engage with Philip K. Dick's work. More specifically I would like the seminar to engage with any aspect of Dick's work, cinematic adaptations of his work, or work that was inspired by his vision—social, economic, religious, political—which has become so relevant in the twenty-first century and possibly beyond. Let us reflect on the immanence and historicity of the work and its adaptations while exploring it alongside contemporary issues and developments.

Imaginary Relations: A Journal for the Ideological Critique of Aesthetic Objects (IR)

Announcing Imaginary Relations
Invitation to submit essays

Imaginary Relations is an experimental ejournal dedicated to ideological critique and analysis of aesthetic objects: poetry, fiction, drama, film and television. The journal seeks to examine the competing meanings that ideologies generate; how ideologies are produced and reproduced in single cultural productions; how ideologies function to produce material practices, such as reading, and how those reading practices can work to reproduce and transform ideologies. The journal, therefore, focuses on the complex valences of ideology as positive and productive forces in culture that do, and can, transform subjectivities and social relations.

The L-A-N-G-U-A-G-E school of poetry marked a shift—or a return to avant-garde practice—in American poetry in the 1970s. This seminar examines the continuing international significance of the L-A-N-G-U-A-G-E school of poetry in the wake of renewed politically engaged practices after the international years of protest of 2011-2013. At a moment when artistic movements across the world are taking up avant-garde and modernist strategies, what is the legacy of that earlier recovery of the avant-garde? Diverse poetic practices associated with the loosely defined movement edged toward the position, in Lyn Hejinian's words, that: "Language is nothing but meanings, and meanings are nothing but a flow of contexts.
