Contemporary Media and Politics

 

‘There is no name for this: we read this as a truism. What is unnameable here is not some ineffable being that cannot be approached by a name; like God for example. What is unnameable is the play that brings about the nominal effects, the relatively unitary or atomic structures we call names, or chains of substitutions for names. In these, for example, the nominal effect of “difference” is itself involved, carried off, and reinscribed, just as the false beginning or end of a game is still part of the game, a function of the system’

-          Jacques Derrida, “Difference”

updated: 
Friday, February 17, 2017 - 1:28pm
Todd Goddard / Utah Valley University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

One doesn't need to look hard to find someone declaring the "end of biography" generally, and in light of the various challenges posed by critical theory, perhaps literary biography is in an even more precarious position. Likewise, it seems clear that the academy generally devalues the efforts of life writers. This roundtable will consider the current state and future(s) of literary biography, in and out of the academy.  Send 250 word abstract by March 15th.

Queering the Transpacific: Asian American, American and Asian Queer Studies

Friday, March 31, 2017

In an era of neo-nationalism and the waning of Pax Americana, Asia ascends and transpacific tensions rise, evident in both Obama’s Pivot to Asia and Trump’s America First policies. A post-national Asian/American studies is thinking more robustly about transpacific relations that pay more attention to histories of Afro-Asian solidarity and methods of comparison beyond Asian nationalism and economic relations alone. What this means for queer critique is less clear, however. Critiques of homonationalism as well as formulations of queer international studies have pushed for critical approaches to Western international policy and its racial and gendered legacies.
