We need new figurations for the humanities. We need to explore intellectual pathways in which critique goes together with creativity. We need critical practices that, defamiliarizing consolidated patterns of thinking, escort us out of the safety zones in which anthropocentrism, Eurocentrism, sexism, speciesism, ableism, constitute the normal discourse of our cultural paradigms. These inspiring ideas were expressed by the philosopher Rosi Braidotti in her keynote lecture on "Posthumanist Paradoxes" held in Zurich at the 2014 Conference of the American Association for Italian Studies.

Dirty Talk: The Forms and Language of Pleasure (MadLit) - Abstracts Due 1/3/2015

Dirty Talk:The Forms and Language of Pleasure
The 11th Annual Graduate Conference on Language and Literature (MadLit)
at the University of Wisconsin-Madison // February 26-28, 2015w

Dirty talk. Guilty pleasure. Darkest desire. Our everyday discourse is littered with phrases that shun or shame the pleasurable. Yet seeking pleasure, as fig- ures from Chaucer to Freud have argued, is a basic human instinct. Scholarship across a variety of fields has gravitated toward humanity's complex relationship with pleasure.

Nobrow: The History and Future of Popular Culture

CFP for edited collection "Nobrow: The History and Future of Popular Culture"

Traditional distinctions between "highbrow" and "lowbrow" are not sufficient to describe the cultural production of our times. We live—and have been living for a long time—in the age of "nobrow," which intertwines art and entertainment into a complex yet identifiable mode of cultural practice. Our increasingly global, digital, and culturally eclectic world is dominated by endless varieties of nobrow culture. Yet, with few exceptions, the historical nature, aesthetic complexity, and social interpretation of this cultural formation have largely escaped critical analysis.

The Alternative Document
This symposium explores the relationship between event and documentation as a provocation between the text /visual record and ephemeral art practices as a negotiation between sites that are often represented as polar opposites. These sites could be imagined as a territory where the distinction between land and sea is blurred, for example in alluvial plains, where the interplay between its different stages replenishes and revives each state. Rather than prioritizing one form over another, each manifestation generates potential for further responses, creating an ongoing work.
