Belonging and possession have long been treated as foundational to the missions and activities of museums and archives in how they connote, establish, explain, and demonstrate the ways collections belong to them; determine and express who possesses custody, ownership and control of artifacts; and, by extension, consider the knowledge surrounding objects, makers, places of origin and residence that they supply. Typically, museums and archives express their interests in possessing collections through practices of acquisition, loan, attribution, provenance, exhibition, scholarship, conservation, and rights and reproductions.

(dis)junctions 2015: Strange Bedfellows

"Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows."-Shakespeare's The Tempest (2.2)

University of California, Riverside's (dis)junctions conference invites papers and panels that push at the boundary of contemporary scholarship. Our critical focus, "Strange Bedfellows," is geared specifically toward innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to cultural, literary and theoretical texts. We are looking particularly for scholarship that emerges from the disjunction of incongruent forms, that thrives on the border of the unfamiliar, and that transgresses the boundary of the expected.

Across Europe, the public discourses of migration continue to trade on anxiety and fear. Much of this debate seems wearying familiar: populist politicians rehearse familiar anti-immigration rhetoric, while EU states co-operate to target so-called "irregular" migrants. At the same time, European migration appears to display new contours and patterns that such repetitions seem unable to record. Migration within Europe has also changed, as the EU expansion has combined with the calamitous collapse of finance capital.

Waiting shapes the narratives of individuals and societies alike. Yet, waiting is more than just one realization of the present. Far from being a mere form of intermittent white noise, waiting could be conceptualized as the unravelling of and the reflection on a plurality of possible futures. Waiting simultaneously foregrounds the often paradoxical agency/passivity of the waiting subject as explored, for example, in the narrative of Penelope in Homer's Odyssey.

Originality in a Digital Culture (13 Marcy 2016)

Originality as an ideal has occupied an august position in American cultural history, from Emerson's injunction to "[N]ever imitate" to Apple's "Think different" campaign. Yet the very proliferation of coffee mugs, bumper stickers, fridge magnets, and tablet cases bearing Emerson's words and Apple's slogan shows that not only objects but even the ideas they bear can be disseminated en masse. And in a digital culture in which information can be shared more quickly, easily, and cheaply every day, how do we—scholars, teachers, critics, readers—conceive of originality and theorize its value?
