Lost and Found: Texts as Exploration and Discovery - Extended Deadline

Tuesday, January 10, 2017 - 6:54pm

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 3, 2017

The Acacia Group invites submissions both academic and creative from all disciplines for this year’s conference “Lost and Found: Texts as Exploration and Discovery” at California State University, Fullerton on March 17th-18th, 2017.

This conference seeks to find the lost voices of marginalized groups, scholarship that is “just a student paper,” identity in an age of technology, and connections between seemingly disparate experiences. Ultimately, we are looking for work that explores what is lost and what is found through our interaction with texts (which includes literary texts as well as performative, cinematic, social media, and other forms of textuality). What is lost? What is found? What happens now that it is lost/found?

Acts of injustice in or with the Indian subcontinent have been committed by previous generations in institutional, social, political or familiar contexts. This conference seeks to highlight some of these wrongs and discuss the various ways they have been or should be righted.  This conference is likewise geared by an inclusionary energy that connects diverse manifestations of “Indianness” against the background of an Indoceanic geography. W/righting wrongs involves acts of remembrance whereby memory and history coalesce, and, as a result, a dynamics of self situated beyond the national/global dichotomy is delineated.

Chiasma: A Site for Thought

Wednesday, January 4, 2017

Continental philosophy and science have a complex and tumultuous relationship. At turns oppositional and complementary, their discourse has been marked by mutual incomprehension and distrust, often leading to a general lack of interest. But with the recent appearance of the so-called New Materialisms – the materialist Deleuzianism of Manuel DeLanda, the Speculative Realism of Quentin Meillassoux, Ray Brassier, and Graham Harman, the “neuro-turn” of Catherine Malabou, Donna Haraway’s animal studies, the actor-network theory of Bruno Latour – there has been a renaissance of science studies in continental thought.
