Utopian Acts

Birkbeck, University of London

1 September 2018

http://utopia.ac/

Above all, we need to understand utopia as a method rather than a goal … always suspended between the present and the future, always under revision, at the meeting point of the darkness of the lived moment and the flickering light of a better world, for the moment accessible only through an act of imagination.

- Ruth Levitas, Utopia as Method (2013)

Another world is possible.

PAMLA 2018 Special Session

Veterans Studies is a growing field of research that addresses the significant impact of military personnel transitioning from active duty to civilian life. All the world is a ‘stage’ for military personnel and their families. Their stories and experiences as they ‘act’ in foreign locations is a rich part of human culture that veterans bring with them when they return to civilian life. This special session invites papers that explore the many facets of the military experience including literature, theatre, film, and poetry written about or by military veterans.

Literary Politics Beyond Colonial Recognition

MLA 2019/Gabriella Friedman and Alex Young
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 25, 2018

The goal of this session is to explore literature as an arena for articulating alternatives to colonial recognition. In recent years, scholars working across the humanities and social sciences, but especially in Indigenous and Black studies, have challenged the role of recognition in resisting regimes of racialization and empire. However, there is not yet a large body of scholarship grappling with the role of literature in crafting forms of politics that do not depend on the recognition paradigm. We believe that literature, with its emphasis on imaginative creation, is a site of cultural production that holds unique insights about what politics without recognition might be like.
