Imagining the Post-Apocalypse

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 8, 2018

The genre of apocalyptic literature has long been associated with times of crisis and distress.  Perhaps one of the most important examples in the Western tradition, the Biblical Book of Revelation, was written as a response to the horrible persecution of early Christians in the Roman Empire.  Since that time, authors and film-makers have turned to imaginations of apocalypse, the end of the world, and life after the collapse of contemporary social structures to take on a host of questions and concerns.  The prevalence of post-apocalyptic literature and film in recent decades has forced literary and cultural studies scholars to examine this cultural mode in a new way.

UPDATE: Deep Learning & Shifting Paradigms in the Humanities

Humanities have long since recognized the importance of critical reading and thinking, or the ability for students to engage in higher-order thinking skills to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate texts and ideas.  With the growing decline of interest in the humanities and so many students now enrolling in colleges for more vocational ends, there is an emerging shift away from in‐depth reading/critical dialogue in both college and American culture.  Thus, many students now enter college with fewer critical tools that we once took for granted and that once made humanities engaging.   How do we approach this new cultural/student paradigm?  Are there more avenues of approach than simply resisting or easing up on expectations/requirements/objectives?  P

UPDATE: Animals in Literature and Film

This year’s MMLA Animals in Literature and Film panel invites papers engaging in tensions of “human” and “animal” found within a variety of ancient textualities related to the broad field of animal studies. In ancient Greek and Roman society, animals serve important roles, often as a medium in religion, as symbolic function in Greco-Roman mythology, and as poetic symbol in ancient oral tradition and later written literature. Often, animals are given titular roles, and they carry strong symbolic function in the narrative, whether the narrative is oral, written, or artistic.

“State Reason/University Thought” proposes to bring together disparate considerations of the historical and contemporary role of higher education in the reason of state. In distinction from many other contemporary investigations of the university, this event seeks to interrogate the intensity and complexity of the very relation between the university and the state; to ask about the university as a social, psychic and historiographic idea of state consolidation and rationalization.

Polygraph 27—Call for Papers Special Issue: Neoliberalism and Social Reproduction Social reproduction, as both the material reproduction of the workforce and ideological interpellation of individuals into normative culture, remains crucial to contemporary Marxist and feminist critical thought. Whether Althusser's ideological state apparatuses, Foucault's theories of discipline and biopower, or Federici's analysis of invisible and unwaged domestic labor, critical theory has long attempted to name the mechanisms through which capitalist societies reproduce themselves.

The current political climate cultivates a culture hostile to basic freedoms of speech and press, refuses to acknowledge fact-based knowledge, and belittles activists as “paid protesters.” Recently, Inside Higher Ed published, “Time for the Scholar Activist” (Oct. 2016).  Its author, Kerry Ann Rockquemore, suggests, “The main feature of the [Reframe Your Definition of Activism] model is integrating the work you are hired to do as a faculty member with the changes you want to see in the world.
