What is Sexual Modernity - 6/30

updated: 
Wednesday, June 10, 2015 - 9:32am
full name / name of organization: 
Benjamin Kahan / Modernism/Modernity
contact email: 

I am seeking submissions for a prospective special peer-reviewed cluster on the Modernism/Modernity print-plus platform exploring the question: "What is Sexual Modernity?" Does modernity have a sexuality? We might follow Rita Felski's lead in The Gender of Modernity (1995) to ask what is at stake in, or what changes occur when we define the sexuality of modernity as queer, sapphic, heteronormative, perverse, or otherwise? How might these nominations intersect with or alter formations of the color of modernity, colonial modernity, atavistic modernity, or the gender of modernity?

[UPDATE] Consuming Culture in Victorian and Edwardian Literature (SAMLA 87) (6/25)

From the proliferation and commodification of print culture in the 18th century to the Forster's Education Act of 1870, those who consumed - and the way people consumed – the arts and culture at large changed irrevocably in England. These factors - among numerous others- culminate Leonard Bast's feeble attempts to fit Ruskin's depictions of Venice to his basement hovel in E.M. Forster's classic Howards End. Bast's story, pushed to the margins of the novel, is primarily that of a working class individual attempting to better his position in life through the arts and culture.

[UPDATE - deadline extended] 'From Manland to Womanland': Gender in SFF

updated: 
Wednesday, June 10, 2015 - 8:23am
full name / name of organization: 
Brunel University London

From military patriarchies to feminist dystopias, from the monstrous feminine to cyborg uncertainties, from Ursula LeGuin's The Left Hand of Darkness to Ann Leckie's Ancillary Justice, from wars between the sexes to post gender societies, SFF texts have continuously complicated, questioned and reinvented our approach to gender.

We invite proposals for papers considering any aspect of gender in SFF/horror texts or related comics, films, tv, games and music. Topics might include:

CFP: Global Identities in a Digital Age: German-language Culture in
the 21st Century

A joint graduate conference by the University of Toronto and the
University of Waterloo

Date: November 13th, 2015
Location: Hart House, University of Toronto
Deadline for abstracts: July 30th, 2015
Keynote speakers: tba

As inhabitants of a digital global space, we all form identities that may or may not differ greatly from our non-virtual selves. Informed and manipulated by mass media, the construction of our identities is, more than ever, shaped by global discourses. Ideas of nationalism, race, and gender are formed and re-formed in ways impossible to recreate in a non-digital environment.

How to do things with art

Steen Christiansen and Jens Lohfert Jørgensen

We must account for the intensity of art, otherwise we can only explain part of our aesthetic experience. This argument is found in critics as diverse as Brian Massumi, Charles Altieri, and Sianne Ngai. Philosophers such as Alfred North Whitehead, Henri Bergson, and Steven Shaviro have argued that much of our perception is not cognitive but intuitive; we connect to the world through our senses.

Audiovisualtopia: A Conference on the Contemporary Screen Scene

full name / name of organization:

CALL for PAPERS: One hundred twenty years after the Lumiere Brothers' Arrival of a Train at Ciotat Station / L'arrivée d'un train en gare de La Ciotat and about 60 years after the insinuation of television...into living rooms across the industrialized world, contemporary societies are saturated with audiovisual culture. More recently, the rise of widely affordable techno-substrates for production (digital photography) and exhibition (youtube, proliferating film festivals) are clearly enabling toward the "democratization" of audiovisual sophistication, such that the committed college sophomore can readily produce polished short films. In other words, there is much to celebrate!

Edited Collection: Eco Culture: Disaster, Narrative, Discourse

updated: 
Tuesday, June 9, 2015 - 3:15pm
full name / name of organization: 
Robert Ficociello/ Holy Family University

The edited collection, Eco Culture: Disaster, Narrative, Discourse, seeks to open a conversation about the mediated relationship between culture and ecology. The dynamic between these two great forces comes into stark relief when a disaster—in its myriad forms and narratives—reveals the fragility of our ecological and cultural landscapes. Disasters are the clashing of culture and ecology in violent and tragic ways, and the results of each clash create profound effects to both. So much so, in fact, that the terms ecology and culture are past separation and coincide through a supplementary role to each other.
