Friday, September 15, 2017

Join us at the Central APA in Chicago in February 2018 for a unique opportunity!  For the first time, the Karl Jaspers Society of North Amercia and Gabriel Marcel Society are meeting together to view contemporary issues through the lenses of Jaspers and Marcel.  The content of the joint session is broadly construed, but with an eye toward contributions that draw from, or are indebted to, the work of Karl Jaspers and Gabriel Marcel. Differences and similarities of these two thinkers will be discussed in view of existentialism and politics. Contributions that integrate current political realities are especially encouraged, as are those that draw from distinct academic methodologies.

'Nevertheless, they persisted': The Aesthetics of Resistance

updated: 
Tuesday, May 30, 2017 - 4:35pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel seeks papers that analyze textual, visual, and/or performance-based media in which female, trans*, and/or genderqueer protagonists fight against injustice, whether through explicitly political acts (e.g. protest) or by living a life in opposition to oppressive hegemonic demands. How is this resistance coded aesthetically, linguistically, formally, and/or narratologically? How do intersecting aspects of the protagonist’s identity, such as race, ability, class, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, and/or nationality/citizenship status shape the kinds of resistance undertaken? How are these acts interpreted by other actors in the storyworld and what is their impact?

CFP: Iconic Images in Media for PAMLA Conference 2017 Honolulu, Hawaii (11/10-12/2017)

Our daily lives are saturated with images, but among the mundane are the few—like the drowned Syrian refugee child—that stand out and become icons of some bigger issue in society. It is not only their stories that are important to analyze, but also the effect these images have on the population. No longer are we dependent on those with professional equipment and experience to show us images and stories from half a world away. Pictures taken by the people and of the people have a way of refocusing hearts and minds away from war/conflict/political agenda and to the lives of the individuals affected. This session will focus on these kinds of images as text and analyze their stories, context, and effect in our society.
