Global Perspectives on Early America at IAAS 2018

updated: 
Friday, November 17, 2017 - 11:15am
Irish Association for American Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 15, 2017

We seek proposals on early American literature and history for the Irish Association for American Studies’ 2018 Conference, “Foreign Bodies and Native Sons,” at the University College Dublin (April 27-28). Though the recent U.S. presidential election thrived on the division of “foreign bodies” and “native sons,” this panel aims to analyze who and what constituted “America” prior to the creation of the United States. These two categories offer especially productive lenses into early American history and literature: how does coloniality trouble the terms foreign and native? how did the New World alter the bodies and minds of its disparate peoples? in what ways did early Americans renegotiate their own cultural and national identities?

Spaced Out. Spatiality in Comics

Space does for comics what time does for film.
McCloud 1994

How is space thematised and transformed, strengthened or weakened in the narrative comic? To what extent do comics rewrite and reinvent space by offering a place where spatial coordinates can be reconfigured in a utopian or fantastic manner? How does this reconfiguration affect perception devices? And again, how can the representation of spatiality in comics be modified within the network of the ongoing transmedia transformations?

deadline for submissions:

Critical studies on men and masculinities is a developing and interdisciplinary field of inquiry, flourished in association with the feminist and LGBTQ studies since its establishment in the 1980’s by the substantial efforts of authors such as Raewyn Connell, Michael Kimmel, Jeff Hearn, Victor Seidler and David Morgan among many others. This field is now elaborating and promoting its own issues and agendas. Masculinities: A Journal of Identity and Culture, an internationally refereed journal which is published biannually in February and August by Initiative for Critical Studies of Masculinities (ICSM), is a part of these efforts.

After 6 years of terrible violence, the war in Syria grinds on, and after surviving harrowing journeys, millions of people remain displaced, trapped in camps, between “borders,” tangled in bureaucratic processes. Meanwhile, anti-refugee campaigns have gained traction in certain wealthy nations best suited to mitigate the suffering of innocent people. Though a refugee crisis of this magnitude and duration is rare on the world stage, such catastrophes are not new and, today, not limited to Syria.
