The (Dis)Order of Things: Mechanisms of Power and Control

updated: 
Monday, April 17, 2017 - 2:32pm
Florida Atlantic University Comparative Studies Student Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 19, 2017

Our Fall 2017 Comparative Studies Student Association Interdisciplinary Conference will focus on questions of power.  Where is power found? How does power exert control? Power and control form the foundation of relationships within institutions (government, gender, self, etc.) but also invite conflict. These concepts serve to establish order and stability, but can also inspire disorder and a desire to destabilize when they become oppressive. Understanding the mechanisms of power and how they exert control, how power and control are distributed, becomes imperative in understanding and possibly resolving conflict.

Following on from The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath (2000) and Ariel: The Restored Edition (2004)this book is another landmark contribution in efforts by Plath scholars to piece together and recuperate Plath’s words that have for so long been fragmented. With The Letters of Sylvia Plath, Volume 1, Plath’s words and experiences will be drawn together to give readers a fuller insight into her creative process and richly artistic literary life.

DEADLINE APPROACHING—CFP for ALA panel—Sense of Place in American Modernist Poetry and Visual Art

updated: 
Friday, April 7, 2017 - 4:00pm
American Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 1, 2017

This panel explores the sense of place as part of the indigenous language of American artistic production of Modernism in the context of the European avant-garde. Though U.S. poets and artists were influenced by the formal techniques of Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Dadaism and Surrealism, they were also determined to search for the essence of an expressive language that defined its authenticity as opposed to European foreignness. One of their avenues of research was the exploration of the distinctive features of the American soil as a means of contributing novel aspects to modern aesthetics. The genuine character of the environment is closely linked to the strong attachment to rural or urban spaces and the value they acquire for the observer.
