3rd MEMORY, FORGETTING AND CREATING - International Interdisciplinary Conference

updated: 
Wednesday, May 29, 2019 - 9:18am
University of Gdansk, InMind Supprt,
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 7, 2019

CFP:

In our increasingly fast-paced societies, where information is abundant and its reception is superficial, human memory appears to be an endangered phenomenon. This is why we would like to take a closer look at the complex processes of memory. These include forgetting, neglecting, negation, and detachment, along with creating, recollecting, remembering, regaining memories, and reconstructing one’s relationship with the past. We are deeply interested in examples and consequences of altered memories: invention, fabrication, deception, indoctrination or propaganda. We invite reflection on mutual relations between memory and imagination, fantasising and manipulating, forgetting and creating.

More than Meets the Ear - Sound & Short Fiction

updated: 
Wednesday, May 29, 2019 - 11:58am
University of Vienna (Austria)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 15, 2019

Sound is being celebrated as a source of insight in the humanities. Foregrounding the sense condemned to play second fiddle by Plato, scholars are tapping into sonic, auditive and aural phenomena and their technological reproduction, mapping practices of sound production, exploring soundscapes of different periods, compiling cultures and histories of hearing and listening. Some publications in this vibrant field focus on voice/s, others explore the theorisation, representation and political (re-) evaluation of noise/s or investigate how hearing may interact with vision, touch, taste and smell.

Decolonizing the Digital Archive

 

In recent years we have witnessed a proliferation of digital archival work – often (but not always) in the form of open access platforms developed to gather, preserve, and share historical documents. The very nature of open accessibility counters a rhetoric of retreat and the construction of barriers among knowledge producers and consumers – by refusing ownership over its content and seeking collaborative and communal engagement in both interpretational and curatorial work, open access digital archives are often decentralized archives that  provide modes for democratic access, exchange, and co-construction of knowledge.

Visibility of the Invisible: The Idea, Theory, and Ontology of Trace

updated: 
Wednesday, May 29, 2019 - 1:56pm
NeMLA 2020
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel invites proposals to examine the notion, theory, idea, and ontology of the trace and the ways in which it can be deployed in literature, image studies, art, film, and other media and disciplines. 

From its rudimentary manifestations as smoke and fire and footprint, to theological significations of the image of Jesus on the Shroud of Turin, the trace, as a visible marker of an absent presence, generates a compelling milieu to meditate on the proliferation of meaning in text and image. 

International Conference on SUSPICION

Race, Gender & Power: An Inquisition of Identity Politics in South Asian Literature

updated: 
Wednesday, May 29, 2019 - 11:53am
Northeast Modern Language Assoc
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel will explore the complex and evolving relationships between race, gender and power in South Asian Culture. Because of the complexity of these issues, we are not insisting on a specific time-frame. While the accent will be on contemporary life, participants may want to focus on the past, near or distant.

Narratives of Queer Space: An Inquisition in South Asian Literature

updated: 
Wednesday, May 29, 2019 - 11:53am
Northeast Modern Language Assoc
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel establishes the presence of and explores queer themes and narratives in South Asian literature. While the focus is on the last forty years, we will also include more historic approaches as well.

It is an often-accepted critical truism that South Asian Literature is devoid of its focus on narratives of queer resistance in its literature. Thus, the fight to highlight queer themes within larger heterosexual texts is more important than ever. South Asia with its rich and diverse literary background was never short of themes on queer genre but the practice was so normative at the same time so tabooed that it rarely found its way in literature.
