Utopia, Dystopia and Climate Change: 20th International Conference of the Utopian Studies Society, Europe

Despite the incidence of climate change scepticism amongst right-wing politicians in the United States and elsewhere, there is a near-consensus amongst scientists that current levels of atmospheric greenhouse gas are sufficient to alter global weather patterns to possibly disastrous effect. Writing in the journal Utopian Studies in 2016, the Californian science fiction writer Kim Stanley Robinson observed that: "Climate change is inevitable - we’re already in it - and because we’re caught in technological and cultural path dependency, we can’t easily get back out of it ...

Re-Invoking Global Dialogues on Learning, Un-Learning, and Study

Current neoliberal education on a global scale is dominated by the logic of learning. Specifically, learning is framed as the process of acquiring the OECD/USA-endorsed indispensable skills, competencies, or literacies as the desirable prerequisite for students to succeed in the 21st century. As an effect, education is further collapsed into socialization and qualification (Biesta, 2006), staked primarily on making students into subjects who can fit into the pre-existing order of things.

Signs Special Issue: RAGE

Feminists are raging.  This special issue will consider our rage as a global, complex phenomenon that mandates interdisciplinary and intersectional analysis. Rage is historical. Rage can be deeply exclusionary, recognizable as a legitimate emotion for only a privileged few. It is an instrument of patriarchy as well as a potential feminist resource. Rage shapes moral claims for racial justice, movements against gender violence, and opposition to the global rise of authoritarian regimes.  Rage can do so in ways that both extend and depart from the histories of feminist and queer raging that marked late-twentieth-century radical feminism, global organizing against HIV/AIDS, and against police brutality.

This special issue of the Journal of the Midwest Modern Language Association aims to interrogate how transatlantic encounters, itineraries, and movements have shaped literary and cultural expressions, influencing the formation of both individual and collective knowledge.  In particular, it aspires to foster a dialogue to address political, ethical, sexual, and aesthetic questions related to transatlantic interactions among people, practices, and ideas, expanding from traditional Eurocentric perspectives and canonized narratives to encompass a global perspective.  This dialogue becomes even more relevant in the present days, considering the political and cultural implications of such motilities.  Transatlantic travels have played a

Have you taught a place-based course in literature, history, American studies, or the humanities more generally? Have you focused on place in courses on Latinx, African American, Native American, or queer studies? What design choices did you make when creating your syllabus? If you were to redesign the documents for this course, what would you change?
