Seeking conference paper proposals for ASLE: Association for Studies in Literature and Environment.   

The Anthropocene has developed largely because of our cultures of work and our work machines. This fact calls for a reevaluation of work. How might this effort proceed? How should we reimagine labor and leisure in light of climate change? What does the news of the Anthropocene teach us about ideologies of labor and leisure? What does the naming technology of “the Anthropocene” make possible? What does it suppress or disable?

"Doing Theory": theory@buffalo 20

In recent years, the value of critical theory has been questioned by various thinkers for reasons that may seem contradictory. On the one hand, it has been subject to criticism for its excess, for being redundant in the face of actual facts. On the other, it has been seen as lacking, impoverishing the object of analysis by forcing upon it a limiting framework. In response to this, humanities scholars have sought out new analytic tools, for example in the fields of neuroscience, cognitive science, and biology. This 20th anniversary issue of theory@buffalo speaks to this “existential crisis” being experienced in the humanities. Is it time to move on from theory and cultivate other ways of thinking?

From March 21-24, 2017, the Humanities Division at Essex County College will host its Fifth Annual Humanities Conference, "Radical Humanities: The Radical Tradition in the Humanities." Although the idea of radicalism can, in some ways, seem antithetical to our understanding of "tradition," this conference will, in part, examine the roots and patterns of radical thought in humanities discourse (including literature, philosophy, art, music, theater, dance, media, architecture, and design) as well as explore works, ideas, and movements that may be seen as radical or revolutionary.

Lucas Malet, Dissident Pilgrim: Critical Essays

Popular novelist, female aesthete, Victorian radical and proto-Modernist, Lucas Malet was a literary tour de force in her own day, yet her work has been largely neglected by contemporary readers and critics. A daughter of Charles Kingsley, Malet was part of a creative dynasty from which she drew inspiration but against which she rebelled both in her personal life and her published work. Scholarship by Talia Schaffer and Catherine Delyfer has reopened critical enquiry into the work of this fascinating author, and we are seeking contributions in order to expand this emerging field of study.

We require additional essays for an edited volume on queer visual cultures contracted with Universitas Press and due to be published by the end of this year. Essays should focus on representations and portrayals of, or appropriations of the queer subject on stage, on screen or through other visual cultural mediums. The essays could discuss individual works or artists or attempt to present a study of genres or a cluster of works. At this stage we are looking for an additional 5-6 papers that deal with the queer subject on film and on stage/theatrical portrayals of the queer, queer art or the queer in art, New Queer Cinema, installation art and the queer, queering dance, and the queer in television.
