Gendering PostNature

updated: 
Wednesday, January 25, 2017 - 11:25am
Genders Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 15, 2017

This special issue of Genders invites essays, reviews, roundtables, and creative work that address the emergent category of “postnature” in the new geological epoch of the Anthropocene. We seek interventions across local and global frameworks that consider the ways postnature is informed by gender identities, norms, discourses, and practices, as well as their socio-political, scientific, popular, and aesthetic regulation. As a disciplinary norm deployed to police the “unnatural,” nature has proved to be a labile signifier used to endorse or discredit a wide spectrum of cultural formations.

CFP:Mississippi Goddam Everywhere: The Ends of Southern and American Exceptionalisms We are seeking abstracts for 20-minute papers for a panel of the Southern United States Forum at MLA 2018. The myth that the United States (and the “American” colonies before that) is the greatest and freest nation in the world has always been deeply intertwined with the myth of a problematic, antidemocratic, backwards South. On the flip side, many southerners have long embraced the notion that the region is culturally and politically different from the rest of the nation in terms of food, music, religion, family life, literature, and more.

MLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Works of literature, the visual arts, drama, dance, and music have long been addressed to readers, viewers, and listeners, both real and imagined. Whether implicit or explicit, the ways artists address, court, and affect their audiences are crucial to understanding their work. But while traditional ideas about audience often denote passive reception or disinterested judgment, certain artistic forms recast the observer as an active participant and/or collaborator in the construction of the art object’s meaning.

We invite papers exploring any aspect of religion, spirituality, and the sacred in Wharton’s work, including the afterlives of religion in gothic, aestheticism, or satire. How does Wharton conceptualize belief, spirituality, or religious tradition within modernity? What place does the sacred have in her writing, and where are the sacred spaces in her work? Are there distinctive features to Wharton’s discussions of religious architecture or sacred art? What interactions take place between Wharton’s fiction and the Bible, or religious texts and genres? How does Wharton’s anthropological eye address religious movements, practices, or characters?

Break-up: Separation, Estrangement and Disjunction

SHU Humanities Postgraduate Conference 2017

 

Hosted by SHSU Postgraduate Research Students’ Society - 1st and 2nd June 2017

 

‘Between three counties far apart that lay

We were divided and looked strangely each

At the other, and we knew we were not friends

But fellows in a union that ends

With the necessity for it, as it ought.’

From “Home”, Edward Thomas, 1916
