Seismopolite Journal of Art and Politics

.

The upcoming issue of Seismopolite Journal of Art and Politics will discuss art's relationship with political ecology: What role does art have to play – if any – under the precariously situated human and environmental consequences of neoliberalism and its political geography? Which potentials can be found in locally situated artistic discourses and re-imaginations of political ecology, for influencing global discourses on climate change? How can the dialogue between culturally and historically different ecological imaginaries and eco-philosophical traditions be significant in an era marked by unprecedented threats to the environment?

CALL FOR PAPERS - REVOLUTIONARY GENDERS

Deadline for submissions: September 21, 2016

Conference dates: November 18 & 19, 2016, NUI Galway

The quest for equality always involves change, sometimes revolutionary change. This change, this revolution can be slow, living in the shadows, waiting for the moment to strike. Or it can be loud, visible and quick. Either way the landscape is changed.
In the wake of a revolution what remains? What is left behind? What changes? And for whom? What compromises are made?

What can sound studies tell us about the printed word? What kinds of intersections exist between sound and print modes of reproduction? What has visual culture taught us about print culture, and how are we now going beyond the visual to understand the printed word?

This MLA 2017 panel will examine conception, production, and dissemination of the printed word with and beyond the visual, including intermediality or sound studies. 250-word abstract by 15 March 2016; Lisa Chinn lisa.marie.chinn@gmail.com

Vice and Transgressive Behavior in Travel

NEASECS Panel
contact email: 

In Aphra Behn's play, The Widow Ranter, the entire Virginia colony seems to be spiraling into an unstoppable rebellion that may, or may not, have been caused by Bacchanalian bliss. From tobacco and alcohol to sex and marriage plots, the character Hazard is seemingly dropped into a den of vice as soon as he steps off the boat from England. This panel proposes to examine the concept of vice as a direct result of someone transgressing, or literally stepping over, a border in the long eighteenth century. How do the narratives of "self versus other" in the eighteenth century deal with naturalized behaviors coming home? How does the proliferation of tobacco in the American colonies cross the ocean and infiltrate domestic space?

At Parlour, we accept Growl Posts, video lectures, and video presentations on a rolling basis. These types of content need not relate to the theme of an upcoming issue.

A Growl Post is a short essay responding to a text using few, if any, secondary sources. Named for John Jarndyce's "Growlery" in Dickens' Bleak House, the Growlery is a space to express and ruminate on issues "unsuitable" for the parlour. However, Growls do not need to exclusively express "ill humour." Funny, edgy, witty, dark—Growls may contemplate or approach a text from any perspective. Growl Posts should follow current MLA guidelines and be approximately 1500-2500 words in length.

Inspired by the recently published fifth volume of Poems for the Millennium, Barbaric Vast & Wild: A Gathering of Outside & Subterranean Poetry from Origins to Present, this symposium will open up views to poetry past, present, and potentially future with the question: Is there something in poetry 'outside' (economically, racially, nationally, formally, etc.) and 'subterranean' (suppressed by political and poetic hegemonies) that may lie at the heart of the most vital poetic practice? In their new groundbreaking gathering, Jerome Rothenberg and John Bloomberg-Rissman have assembled a wide range of poems and related language works, in which outside/outsider and subterranean/subversive positions challenge the boundaries of poetry.
