CFP - Unauthorized: Media Piracy, Digital Forgery and Generative AI

The specter of replicating – movement, physical reality, and life itself - has haunted cinema ever since Maxim Gorky stepped into the Lumières’ “Kingdom of Shadows.” Over a century later, digital copies and online piracy of media content raise questions of distribution, access, and emerging technologies’ impact on authorship, perpetuating the age of the unregulated reproduction. More recently, AI’s entry into creative production has made concerns over image duplication and fabrication as urgent as ever.

Reproductive Justice and the Humanities in Times of Crisis: Hybrid Symposium

updated: 
Thursday, November 9, 2023 - 3:44pm
University of York, UK and online
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 15, 2024

Reproductive justice was developed as an international human-rights framework by activists and scholars in the 1990s and has become a cornerstone of intersectional feminist theory and practice within social sciences. Yet, it is only recently that researchers in arts and humanities have begun to tap the rich interdisciplinary potential this framework offers for bringing together reproductive rights, social justice, and cultural representation. In a contemporary moment shaken by ecological and economic crises, rises in far-right nationalisms across the globe, and the rolling back of hard-fought sexual rights in the USA, attention to questions of reproductive justice across the disciplinary spectrum is more urgent than ever.

Postcolonial studies as a way of reclaiming history from the perspective of the colonised continues to uncover the myriad fraught legacies of colonialism. The emergence of newer interdisciplinary areas of inquiry, such as climate change, has further revealed tangled legacies of colonialism that continue to persist. The burgeoning field of postcolonial print culture studies, in turn, has been bringing to the fore a fascinating terrain of production, circulation and consumption of print in colonial contexts that is particularly enriching our knowledge of anticolonial resistance in various ways.  This conference aims to bring together academic work in some of the newer sub-fields of postcolonial inquiry with attention to continuities.

In Postinternet: art after the internet, Marisa Olson defines the ‘postinternet’ variously as “a moment, a condition, a property, and a quality that transcends new media” (2017). Not simply a historical marker in relation to the advent of online networks, the ‘postinternet’ “encapsulates and transports network conditions and their critical awareness as such, even so far as to transcend the internet” (2017).

This is a Call for Papers for an online workshop titled Laughing in the Face of Evil: Humorous Perspectives on Perpetrators in Contemporary American Literature and Popular Culture. The workshop asks what humor can contribute to our understanding of perpetrators by examining a selection of works from contemporary American literature and popular culture. Does humor help demythologize certain perpetrators whose international fame turned them into quasi-mythical figures? Can the ownership of humorous content about a traumatic situation or process endured by a specific marginalized community be transferred to other communities?

Online Midwinter Seminar 2024: Something Mighty Queer

updated: 
Wednesday, October 4, 2023 - 11:05am
Mythopoeic Society
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2023

We invite submissions for an online conference that focuses on queerness in fantasy, science fiction, speculative fiction or other mythopoeic work. This can be queer representation within the work or engaging with mythopoeia through queer theory. “Queerness” is an intentionally ambiguous term, demonstrating the diversity of queer experiences, and the necessity of situating queerness as a liminal, complex paradigm. Queer theory is wider than the study of gender identity or sexuality, extending to taking positions against normativity and dominant modes of thought, and engaging with the indefinite. 

 

Aspects of this topic might include but are certainly not limited to any of the following:

Trauma and Memory Studies: Responses from the Global South (Online)

updated: 
Monday, September 25, 2023 - 3:40pm

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2023

Memory and Trauma Studies have emerged as a key paradigm in the field of humanities, social and cultural studies, especially towards the end of the 20th century. The intersections and interactions between these two fields have been employed by contemporary scholars to study human histories of war, atrocities, genocides, partition, displacement and discrimination. Building upon this enriched understanding of the intricate relationship between memory and trauma, scholars have extended their inquiries to explore the mechanisms through which societies and individuals navigate the aftermath of traumatic experiences.
