CFP for MSA 19: Modernism and/as Refuge

updated: 
Monday, January 9, 2017 - 12:34pm
University of Essex
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 12, 2017

Refuge, as a condition of displacement, seeking place, and placement, and the experience of moving oneself from a position of real or perceived harm to a position of real or perceived safety, interacts in complex and illuminating ways with perceptions of home and homelessness, belonging, citizenship, state and statelessness, personhood, language, loss, as well as with everyday practices and modes of dwelling, and the emotional and cognitive strategies used to configure the past, the present, and the future. Prompted by real historical transformations and mass displacements on an unprecedented scale, the notion/condition of refuge operated vigorously, if ambivalently, in the late nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth century.

Drain
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2017

What is a diagram? How do maps, charts, plans, DNA sequencing, weather mapping, computer glitches and Internet cartography blur the boundaries between ‘art’ and ‘information’? Drain calls for artworks, thought experiments, essays and reviews that explore how data has been weaved into artworks and in the other direction, artworks into data. How are surveillance, spying, data collection explored by artists?  Does Google Earth problematize artists’ relationships with space and mapping? Is there an algorithmic aesthetics?  What is at the source of the renewed artistic interest in Cybernetics?

Console-ing Passions
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 12, 2017

We are seeking to form a panel of researchers who study memes – meme makers, meme culture, meme formats, meme sites, etc. Our aim is to create a conversation about the possibilities and consequences of meme culture. Analyses related to the following are particularly relevant to the work of the coordinators and would likely best fit with the theme of possibility and consequence: feminist media studies, social media, affective/emotional labor, politics, trolling, and subcultures. However, proposals on additional, related topics are welcome. If interested in participating, please e-mail a 250-word abstract to Bree or Caroline by Thursday, January 12, 2017.

In the Spirit of Nationalism: Reconsidering the Intersections of Nation and Literature

Department of English Tenth Graduate Student Conference

University of Ottawa

17-19 March 2017

 

Current events, such as Canada’s upcoming 150th anniversary, the Brexit vote, and the international affairs policies instilled by the Republican Party in the US, encourage a reconsideration of the concepts of nation, nationalism, and the nation centre. What has been the role of the nation in shaping cultural identities? What is the current place of the nation in a globalized world? Are nations defined by geographical boundaries? What is the role of literature as it intersects with these matters throughout history?
