Many faculty came of age in the Post-Vietnam War era. This time period was shaped by the writings of Tim O’Brien in The Things They Carried and the films Platoon directed by Oliver Stone, Full Metal Jacket directed by Stanley Kubrick, and The Deer Hunter directed by Michael Cimino. These stories challenged the image of the United States as a land of righteous warriors protecting the world from oppression. Instead, soldiers were the pawns of forces they didn’t understand, forces that were bent on a neo-colonial domination of the world. Then came 9/11 and everything changed. Or did it?

The panel “Spaces / Borders / Identity” deals with the spatial dimension of migration movements in Europe and focuses especially on aspects of identity formations und identity negotiations in border spaces. It is primarily concerned with the discussion of migration as a border-crossing process that challenges spatial borders and that enables and necessitates the constitution of complex identities. It also considers translocal and transnational identities in flux, as they can be described by theoretical concepts important to cultural studies such as orientalism (Edward Said), “third space” and hybridity (Homi Bhabha), contact zones (Mary Louise Pratt) and border spaces as heterotopias.

Ege University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 30, 2016

CALL FOR PAPERS

Multidisciplinary academic considerations that define the field of trauma studies are currently being shaped, expanded and redefined by various theoretical openings. As Dominick LaCapra comments: “No genre or discipline owns trauma as a problem or can provide definitive boundaries for it” (Writing History, Writing Trauma 96). For Cathy Caruth, one of the central figures in cultural trauma theory in the early 1990s, trauma is a crisis of narrative and representation, and of truth and history. Trauma theory is also an attempt to trace the different forms of human suffering and our responses to it.

“If I had to choose between the Doors and Dostoyevsky, then—of course—I’d choose Dostoyevsky. But do I have to choose?” –Susan Sontag

There seems to be no end to the anxieties, fantasies, pleasures, and possibilities of pop culture—how we consume it, avoid it, appreciate it, and allow it to inform our identities. Yet, can we theorize pop today? And if so, to what extent are we obligated to do so?

Intersecting Global Modernism and World Literature

ACLA 2017: Utrecht University, July 6-9
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

The recent global turn in modernist studies prompts timely questions about the intersections between global modernism and world literature, and the role that global modernism plays within the study of world and comparative literature. In their article “The New Modernist Studies,” Douglas Mao and Rebecca Walkowitz argued for an “expanded” vision of modernism that reconsiders canonical figures and texts, contests canonicity’s traditional limits, and redefines temporal and geographical coordinates beyond Anglophone traditions and Eurocentric frameworks.

Anger is traditionally conceived as a contrary response to a negatively-perceived experience. Anger is an emotion that is acceptable for some and not others. For some, expressing anger can have a devastating impact on social, political, professional, and economic outcomes while it enables the successful outcomes of others. Moreover, it can function as an impetus for transformation or stall changes in culture.

Anger may color the actions of groups who strive for change. Particularly, in academia, anger and professionalism are often perceived as mutually exclusive. Calls for respectability and civility are often used to silence minority groups who express anger.
