ASA 2016: At home/not at home in time: rhythms of belonging and unbelonging in American Arts and Social Life

updated: 
Thursday, January 14, 2016 - 1:24pm
Elizabeth Freeman and Krystyna Michael

Elizabeth Freeman (UC Davis, English) and Krystyna Michael (CUNY Graduate Center, Comp Lit) seek papers for an ASA 2016 panel proposal that asks questions about how rhythm has functioned to either create or disrupt a sense of place in time in American arts and social life. Most accounts of the experience of rhythm involve a conscious or subconscious expectation of return—a sense of one's place in a temporal series that lends time structure. Rhythm thereby has the capacity to constitute a reassuring orientation, a sense of being at home in the regular, predictable patterns of music, everyday life, or collective practices it shapes.

CFP: Powering the Future: Energy Resources in Science Fiction and Fantasy

The recent rise of the interdisciplinary subfield of "Energy Humanities" as a prominent critical endeavour has seen an efflorescence of academic and cultural production from around the world focussing on the crucial topic of energy resources. A major spur for this work is, of course, the pervasive anxiety of late environmentalism in the face of anthropogenic climate change, a phenomenon in which energy use plays a central role: as both cause and possible solution. A variety of critical thinking around past, present, and future energy scenarios is motivated by what has been called the contemporary "energy trilemma": how to balance energy security, equality, and sustainability on a world – and indeed planetary – scale?
