Marx and The Arts

updated: 
Thursday, March 26, 2015 - 1:34pm
SAMLA 87

According to Marx, man's aesthetic sense is socially acquired, rather than innate. As cultural producers, artists must labor in the system for the benefit of the market as well as be committed to the working-class cause. In keeping with the theme of SAMLA87, this panel will seek to explore the ways that social constructs can influence all mediums of art. Papers dealing with any aspect of Marxism will be considered as well. Please send abstracts, A/V requirements, and a brief bio to Emma Baughman, Georgia State University, at emmacbaughman@gmail.com Deadline is 10 June 2015.

Migration & Marginalities: C21 Routes - deadline: 1st April 2015

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.

Studies in South Asian Film and Media: Special issue on 'The Region',

Studies in South Asian Film & Media

The economic and political/cultural impact and transformation due to neoliberal policies and the globalizing agendas of capital are to be seen at the level of the region as much as they are at the national. Indeed, under the thrust of global financial and technological forces the region as a linguistic, geographical and political entity is at once sutured to and independent of the nation. The power of capital and corporations, often circumventing the national structures of power and governance, allows them to directly intervene into and shape the affective and ideological landscape of specific regions. The very process of integration into capital is disintegrative, heightening the region even as it dissolves its distance from capital.

"In a world where language and naming are power, silence is oppression, is violence."
― Adrienne Rich, On Lies, Secrets, and Silence: Selected Prose, 1966-1978

"When we (as readers) fill in the gaps that the writer has peppered throughout the book, we form a meaningful bond with the book. We are not just pulling information from it; we're participating in a reciprocal relationship, creating and deriving meaning in an extravaganza of interpretation."
—Wolfgang Iser, Prospecting: From Reader Response to Literary Anthropology

Extending from the conference theme — Arts & Sciences — this special session for the 2015 Midwest Modern Language Association Convention in Columbus, OH seeks papers that engage the vibrant debates over critical "reading."

-To what extent do new modalities of reading imagine themselves as an art, a science, or both?

-What's at stake in the calls for new reading practices, from surface reading to distant reading, from zoomable reading to dialectical reading, and so on?

-To which specific conditions do new reading practices respond?

-To which rhetorical, theoretical (interpretive), and/or scientific traditions do these practices turn or, alternately, shun?

From Diagnosis to Discourse - Midwest Modern Language Association - November 12 - 15, 2015

updated: 
Tuesday, March 24, 2015 - 2:42pm
Sarah Eilefson, Loyola University Chicago and Devon Madon, Illinois Math and Science Academy, chairs

This panel proposes to explore the relationship between the science of medicine and the art of representation. The power of language to create and control lived experiences within a social context is widely accepted. We know that the way in which we experience gender, sexuality, and other identity constructs are formed by the words we use. We also know that power dynamics are shaped and reinforced by domestic and public discourse. This panel seeks to explore these issues in the medical field. How does the language we use to represent medical realities shape or create the experience of various medical conditions? How can the diagnostic categories we use to describe illness or other disorders influence the ways in which we experience them?
