The Cultural Life of Suburbs: Global Perspectives (proposed collection of essays)

updated: 
Tuesday, February 10, 2015 - 10:35am
Cultures of the Suburbs International Research Network (http://suburbs.exeter.ac.uk/)

This edited collection of original scholarly essays directs attention to the relationship between cultural practice and suburban life across diverse global, disciplinary, and historical contexts. Where many previous studies of suburbia have focused on sociological, anthropological, political, or architectural features, this collection is specifically interested in the hitherto hidden part played by culture in shaping our understanding and experience of the suburbs. The aim of the collection is to evaluate culture's role in constructing, mediating or critiquing particular suburban environments and identities.

REMINDER - HYPERION INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE - MARCH 12, 2015

Tuesday, February 10, 2015 - 7:09am
HYPERION UNIVERSITY, BUCHAREST, ROMANIA

Dear all,
I just wanted to remind you about our International Conference, to take place on March, 12 (Thursday), 2015 - COMMUNITY AND COMMUNICATION FROM A DIACHRONIC AND SYNCHRONIC PERSPECTIVE.
Deadline for proposals: February 20, 2015

Reminder: Special issue of Deleuze Studies "Deleuze and Guattari in the Anthropocene." Abstracts due March 1, 2015

updated: 
Monday, February 9, 2015 - 11:28pm
Hannah Stark, University of Tasmania

Twenty years after his death, Deleuze's thought continues to be mobilised in relation to the most timely and critical problems society faces. We are compelled to consider the philosophical consequences of the irreversible and profound impacts of industrialisation and consumerism on environments at a planetary scale. Theory is starting to reconcile itself with a grim environmental future, and more ambitiously, with the emergence of the Anthropocene as an eternal conceptual horizon. The Anthropocene disrupts thought itself, requiring that we return to the question of the place of the human species in the cosmos: a third Copernican Revolution. It is widely accepted now that the human species is itself a geological force.

Nabokov on Politics

updated: 
Monday, February 9, 2015 - 10:13pm
Benjamin Mangrum / University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

In a later preface to Bend Sinister (1947), Vladimir Nabokov claims, "the influence of my epoch on my present book is as negligible as the influence of my books, or at least of this book, on my epoch." The conventional reading of Nabokov as an aesthete who is insistent upon sharp divisions between fictional and political worlds has its principal source in the author's stylization of his own career. Yet this way of reading Nabokov has been complicated through such recent studies as Andrea Pitzer's The Secret History of Vladimir Nabokov.

This panel proposes to investigate the formation of a "Postcolonial Studies Generation": namely, a generation of artists who attended university after the consolidation of postcolonial studies in the academy in the 1980s, and whose artistic production bears the influence of this academic contact. The creative production of this generation includes literature, and extends beyond it, encompassing music, visual art, digital media, and other forms.
