ENGLISH and englishes: Culture, Power, Politics in a Neo-liberalist Regime

updated: 
Tuesday, November 12, 2019 - 2:26am
Department of English, Bankura University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 8, 2019

The destiny of English / englishes was perhaps foreshadowed long back in 1975 by George Steiner in his Presidential Address to the English Association in London: “…the linguistic centre of English has shifted”. This shifting terrain came to be further reified in terms of expansive movements beyond the borders of traditionally recognised territories.

With the exhaustion of postcolonial models, it is time we tried to break free of conventional straitjackets. In a neo-liberalist world order, that almost runs co-extensive with the free market economy and transnational political diplomacy, cultural disciplinary models are establishing an innovative paradigm shift.

I Intersectional Conference 2020: Incarceration and Society

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 - 4:19pm
University of Coimbra
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 31, 2019

In his book The Racial Contract (1997), the African American philosopher Charles W. Mills describes how western white supremacy has created a system of unnamed power that carries with it a social and political structure conducive to the full exercise of a racialised State and judicial system, capable of determining, and legislating over, the life and death of the bodies it subjugates. It is in this sense that Whiteness, as an established power system, can determine, in those countries with a history of slavery and colonialism, the hegemony of ‘Whites’ in all spheres of society, in contrast to the imposition of a marginalised and lesser social place upon the racialised bodies of ‘Blacks’, ‘Latinos’ and other non-white minorities.

Popular Culture and Politics’

 La Rochelle Université-Université de Reims

To be held at: La Rochelle University (France) from 11th to 13th December 2019

 

The ambition of this conference is to explore the close links, hidden or implicit, that exist between popular culture and politics. Indeed, politics may attempt to subvert popular culture, or may be an object of ridicule or praise in Popular Culture, and it would therefore be of great interest to investigate this research field, which is relatively unexplored in France and which mixes two sometimes contradictory and conflicting spheres.

 

Panel CfP: Affect, Theory, and the Emotions: Literary Feelings from the Age of Sensibility to the 21st Century / ESSE Conference, 31 Aug - 4 Sept 2020, Lyon, France

updated: 
Wednesday, October 9, 2019 - 1:27am
ESSE 2020 Panel, Lyon, France
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

The study of affect and the (history of) emotions has transformed literary criticism in the past few decades. While many critics now agree that studying feeling and literature, in literature, or even through literature, have become legitimate pursuits, there is much debate concerning questions of theory, critical methodology, and interpretation (Greco 2008; Seigworth and Gregg, 2009; Keen 2010; Pedwell 2014). This seminar invites papers taking stock of the opportunities and debates in the wake of the Affective Turn in literary criticism through individual case studies from the 18th to the 21st centuries.

From the 1911 National Association Opposed to Woman Suffrage to Phyllis Schlafly’s “STOP-ERA” campaign in the 1980s and governor Kay Ivey’s recent signing into law of House Bill 314 criminalizing abortion in Alabama, women have played a prominent role in opposing feminism in the US.
