updated:

Rebeccah Bechtold
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 30, 2017

This panel invites papers on representations of social transformation in the Marvel Universe to be presented at South Central MLA’s 2017 annual convention held October 5-8th in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Presenters should feel free to propose papers on a wide-range of topics. We are especially interested, however, in papers that explore the representation of trauma and/or violence as a necessary part of socially transformative practices. Proposed papers could consider, for instance, the trauma of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’s terrigenesis or how Luke Cage’s body—often riddled with bullets—offers a challenge to the “All Lives Matter” movement.

Nel 1987, per iniziativa della Presidenza del Consiglio dei Ministri, vide la luce "Il sessismo nella lingua italiana", opera curata da Alma Sabatini, all’interno del quale avevano trovato posto le "Raccomandazioni per un uso non sessista della lingua italiana", diffuse alla fine del 1986. L’intero studio era stato concepito per coniugare riflessione teorica e prassi quotidiana, affinché potessero far insieme breccia nel sentire comune, anche e soprattutto grazie all’impegno degli operatori della comunicazione, come dimostra pure l"’Ammissione di colpa e chiamata di correo" di Sergio Lepri – già direttore dell’ANSA – che accompagnava la ricerca.

Call for Papers: Special Issue, The Comparatist
Topic: Figuring Race
General Editor: Zahi Zalloua (Whitman College)

We welcome contributions that examine the notion of race in comparative studies and literary theory. How do we imagine, represent, and construct race today? What role does race play in the Humanities? How do we talk about race in an ideologically color blind society? How does racial difference relate to other type of differences? Can we foreground race while avoiding both the pitfalls of identity politics and the depoliticization of race by neoliberalism? Topics of interest could include:

Black Lives Matter

Critical Race Theory

Solidarity Movements

Intersectionality

Cosmopolitanism

MSA 19 Panel: Fascist Rebirth, Modernist Resistance

updated:

Wednesday, January 25, 2017

Today we witness a resurgence of fascist rhetoric from parties offering various “alternatives” to the multicultural states that have come to characterize Europe and North America. Modernism, of course, is famously entangled with the rise of fascism, these xenophobic movements’ most notorious antecedent, and there is a new urgency to the questions that Griffin (2007), Ravetto (2007), Antliff (2007), and Ben Ghiat (2015) broached in their scholarly work.

Monday, January 9, 2017

The history of modernist collage is a varied one. Futurism, influenced by Cubist techniques, turned to collage as a method for subverting traditional, representational artwork; Dada’s absurd arrangements of advertising images and print offered a scathing critique of capitalism; Surrealism’s bizarre juxtapositions sought to empower and stimulate the subconscious.
