CALL FOR PAPERS: ​‘Ford and the Other’

Université Paul Valéry, Montpellier, France
September 7–9, 2017

Proposals are invited for an international conference on Ford Madox Ford and 'the other'.

​The principle underlying Max Saunders’s magisterial biography on Ford is that of duality; of a man forever oscillating between differing versions of himself; between public and inner life; tradition and modernity; reality and authenticity. As Saunders reminds us, a writer’s life, according to Ford, is ‘a dual affair’; and this tenet seems relevant both as regards Ford’s life as a writer and his theoretical and literary writing. At the core of duality lies the idea that one is also always another.

Contemporary Media and Politics

 

‘There is no name for this: we read this as a truism. What is unnameable here is not some ineffable being that cannot be approached by a name; like God for example. What is unnameable is the play that brings about the nominal effects, the relatively unitary or atomic structures we call names, or chains of substitutions for names. In these, for example, the nominal effect of “difference” is itself involved, carried off, and reinscribed, just as the false beginning or end of a game is still part of the game, a function of the system’

-          Jacques Derrida, “Difference”

Queering the Transpacific: Asian American, American and Asian Queer Studies

In an era of neo-nationalism and the waning of Pax Americana, Asia ascends and transpacific tensions rise, evident in both Obama’s Pivot to Asia and Trump’s America First policies. A post-national Asian/American studies is thinking more robustly about transpacific relations that pay more attention to histories of Afro-Asian solidarity and methods of comparison beyond Asian nationalism and economic relations alone. What this means for queer critique is less clear, however. Critiques of homonationalism as well as formulations of queer international studies have pushed for critical approaches to Western international policy and its racial and gendered legacies.

52nd Annual Comparative World Literature Conference
April 11-12, 2017
California State University, Long Beach

Identity is inescapable and in constant flux. It can be located in the body, in the discourse that surrounds and determines bodies, or in the more nebulous realm of language. From race, class, gender, and orientation to professional, personal, familial, and cultural identities, we all negotiate multiple aspects of identity in our daily lives and our conceptions of ourselves.

In comes I, says Robbin to Bobbin. There were three Straw Bears and the little one said, rough music! Will the Phantom of the Opera feature in the Scottish play? This cold night will turn us all to fools and morris dancers: hocus pocus, and Faustus must be damned. There were three caskets, and only one contained the liar’s whetstone. Oh yes, there is a doctor to be found at the Hawk’s Well. Out, little spear, if herein thou be! What’s the time, Widow Twankey, at the Common Riding of the Valkyries? A knot, a knot! Waly waly wallflower in the eye of the sun, up and down and around the town. There were three oranges, my true love to see, but ’tis the foul fiend Flibbertigibbet. Surely he is a Puritan, for he has cast out Jack in the Green.
