Dr. Natasha Lushetich, University of Exeter

As a conscious and unconscious, sustained, even efficient effort at 'making and letting die' (Mbembe), necropolitics is systemic to capitalism. The grand-scale destruction of the earth's ecosystems, the overt and covert forms of genocide (the so-called 'war on terror' or the 'refugee crisis'), the feeding of dead poultry to genetically modified legless pigs, or the more recent 'ecological' inventions such as biocremation in which human remains are used to produce heat for leisure centres (Rumble) are only some of the familiar examples.

CFP: Critiquing Humanism (Deadline May 15, 2016)

Sanglap: Journal of Literary and Cultural Inquiry Vol 3 No 1

The recent refugee crisis in Europe has brought to the fore the pressing aspects of the precarious nature of human life. This is not a sudden crisis as scholars have traced its historical roots with the exploits of "Western" capitalism, imperialism, environment, and war on terror. Such engagement has also given us different politico-philosophical points of analysis of the condition: for instance, the rise of terms such as "precariat," "new subaltern," "precarity" (Guy Standing; Simon During), the debates on "Anthropocene" and "capitalocene" (Dipesh Chakraborty; Jason W Moore), or the interest in neuro-biological or communal human affects (Catherine Malabou; Judith Butler). Added to such is the challenge of the machines and objects in our daily life.

PAMLA 2016: Beyond the Children's Paper Book (abstract: 6/10/16; conference: 11/11-11/13/2016)

Sunday, May 1, 2016 - 7:35pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA)

With the rise of the internet, computers, ipads, and other new media, children's books have begun to transform into post-books, new book-game or book-movie hybrids that are changing the nature of the children's book in the 21st century. In this session, we will theorize the roots of the change (how the new technological post-paper books are different from or similar to other earlier book-hybrids like pop-up books, book-toy hybrids, and book-game hybrids) and the ramifications (material, political, pedagogic, and aesthetic) of the new media.
Proposals attending to the conference theme "Archives, Libraries, Properties" are especially welcome.
