Department of Comparative Literature and Classics, California State University, Long Beach

Comparative Literature is a dynamic, interdisciplinary field with a global reach. Its roots can be traced to classical philology, but its modern incarnation can probably be found in Goethe's early 19th-century concept of "world literature" (Weltliterature), in which he refers to the international circulation, reception, interpretation, and influence of ideas and the arts beyond cultural boundaries, an idea both poignant and prescient in our age of global communication.

Tuesday, February 24, 2015 - 5:56pm

How do contemporary poets envision their role in the public life of a postcolony? This is not a question of social value but of social relations. In what ways does poetry mediate the discourses which, in part, inform the coherency of any public?

updated: 
Tuesday, February 24, 2015 - 2:21pm
Christopher Allen Varlack, University of Maryland Baltimore County

From Langston Hughes' 1955 collaboration with photographer Roy DeCarava in The Sweet Flypaper of Life, Wallace Thurman's 1929 collaboration with William Jourdan Rapp in Harlem: A Melodrama of Negro Life in Harlem, and the infamous collaboration of Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston in Mule Bone: A Comedy of Negro Life, the Harlem Renaissance era was a time of flourishing inter-arts collaborations under-examined in contemporary criticism. This panel therefore welcomes papers about the inter-arts collaborations of the Harlem Renaissance inspired by the SAMLA 87 theme, In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts.

Nation, Narration, and Revolution - MSA 17 "Modernism and Revolution", Boston, Nov. 19-22, 2015

Vaclav Paris / CUNY City College

The modernist period is characterized by national upheavals, from the Mexican Revolution, to the Russian Revolutions, to the controversial peace settlements of 1919, and the crises leading up to the Second World War. Modernist artists, writers and filmakers engaged with, and responded to these upheavals, adapting their media to narrate new kinds of national belonging and new versions of the national story. Exploring the connections between nation, narration, and revolution in its broadest sense, this panel seeks to bring together a variety of examples of modernist reactions to geopolitical upheaval.

[UPDATE] - Tufts Grad Conference - Radical Kinship

updated: 
Monday, February 23, 2015 - 10:03pm
Tufts Graduate Humanities Conference

RADICAL KINSHIP

Keynote: Omise'eke Tinsley, University of Texas at Austin
Conference Date: October 16, 2015

Kinships that cross boundaries often entail radical decenterings of family, community, or subjectivity. What happens when Yellow Peril supports Black Power in Ferguson? When Maggie Simpson holds up a Je Suis Charlie sign? When, in a single frame, Kordale and Kaleb dismantle stale notions of Black masculinity, queerness, and fatherhood?

Can we undomesticate kinship?

CFP: Academic Autobiographies

Intermezzo, a digital longform publication associated with Enculturation (http://www.enculturation.net) seeks submissions that address academic autobiography.

David Shumway once labeled the academic star system as one where autobiography marginalizes community in favor of the individual. Indeed, too few academics pen autobiographies unless they are so-called stars. Yet, all academics have a story to tell, one that merges the personal and the professional, the anecdotal and the political, the banal and the important. Academics should want to tell their stories.
