***Extended Submission Deadline: 15 July 2015***

Please visit Modalities2015.com for more information!

This is a symposium about –alities. Now commonplace, terms like temporality, governmentality, positionality, and so on have made their way into literary studies and the humanities more broadly. The broadening of scholarship beyond the human now underway requires that we take a fresh look at the poetics and politics of interpretation, whether or not our scholarship studies the nonhuman explicitly. At the precise moment at which we are being told to look “outside,” we need to get clear again: what is this outside? Is it thinkable? Can we say what we have been saying in such a climate?

We choose to consider not “environment,” say, but “environmentality” in order to avoid sounding monolithic or reified. But if these terms are more than academic politesse, it is time to revisit what we mean by monolithic, reified, and, of course, –ality. By animality, do we mean the conditions of possibility for animals or being-animal? By materiality, are we shifting our focus from material characteristics and attributes to describe instead what modulates or grounds existence? Moreover, are theorizations of animality and materiality as politically motivated and implicative as socially-conscious work on sexuality or postcoloniality?
