Michel Foucault: Discourse Theory and the Archive
(Göttingen University, 16 July 2016)

This year marks not only Michel Foucault's 90th birthday, but also the 50th anniversary of the publication of his seminal book Let Mots et les Choses, which made Foucault a prominent intellectual figure throughout Europe. We would like to commemorate this double anniversary with a one-day symposium organised by the Department of British Literature and Culture at Göttingen University in cooperation with the Göttingen Center for Genderstudies and the Center for Theory of Culture and Society.

NOSTALGIA - Deadline 20th April 2016

Wednesday, March 9, 2016 - 11:06am
Dandelion Journal, Birkbeck College

The Dandelion editors seek submissions on the theme of NOSTALGIA for their forthcoming issue.

Nostalgia is a ubiquitous presence in contemporary culture. Images and fantasies of the past permeate cultural and political discourses: from the mediated recycling of retro culture and popular history, to nostalgia as a method of political renewal (for example, Donald Trump's campaign slogan 'Make America Great Again!' and Ken Loach's The Spirit of '45).

Since his seminal writing on The Sandman (1989-present) and long since before and after on works such as Batman, Miracleman, The Books of Magic, The Endless, Stardust, The Graveyard Book, etc. from adult graphic novels (Neverwhere) to voluminous amounts of children's graphic novels and illustrated texts (Coraline, Chu's Day, Fortunately, the Milk, Hansel and Gretel etc.), Neil Gaiman has established himself as one of the most prominent, if not prolific, writers in the medium of sequential art in the late twentieth and twenty-first century.

Problems We Can Name: Subverting Domesticity Past and Present
A Reader

"I make these lists [of books] but when on earth will I ever get a chance to read these? Since having kids, instead of reading I do something with them or for them or clean up. I always have this sense of domestic responsibility that makes reading feel self-indulgent but that's ridiculous,"- Jennifer Egan

Religion and Literature permanent section panel, MMLA, November 10-13, 2016

Monday, March 7, 2016 - 1:42pm
Midwest Modern Language Association

In keeping with the conference theme "Border States," the Religion and Literature permanent section invites papers on writers and texts which challenge, question, or reimagine the borderlands between religion/spirituality and secular life. Papers might consider questions such as: How do race, ethnicity, gender, and/or sexuality shape the religious imagination (or vice versa)? How do writers belonging to religious minorities address cultural hegemony? How do these writers counter the perceived threats they pose to the dominant social/political culture? How does a writer/character negotiate the relationship between aspects of her spiritual and secular lives? How do religious and spiritual concerns shape the formal choices that writers make?

Modernisms and Modernities East, West and South: Comparing Literary and Cultural Experiences, Shanghai, 19.-22. July 2017

updated: 
Monday, March 7, 2016 - 6:52am
Convened by Fudan University (China), Macquarie University (Australia), Universität Hamburg (Germany)

Modernism has often been critiqued for being homogenising and Eurocentric. Yet, modernity was experienced differently by different societies and cultures, each pursuing their own specific historical trajectory. Across the world in societies as different as China, Australia, the US and Europe, modernist literature and art were, in very different ways, crucial mediators of modernity. This conference will survey diverse experiences of modernity and the place of modernist art and aesthetics in those experiences. Implicit in this discussion is the question of what survives of modernist practices and modernity as a project beyond the known debates around modernism and postmodernism towards a new relevance in the era of globalisation and climate change.

[UPDATE] MLA 2017 Special Session: New Approaches to Existentialism and the Absurd (deadline 3/15/2016)

updated: 
Sunday, March 6, 2016 - 5:18pm
Julia Elsky / Loyola University Chicago

This is a call for a proposed panel, which will explore new approaches to the study of the existentialist and absurdist movements in the 20th century. We invite proposals for papers that rethink these movements in light of recent scholarship related to gender, race, ecology, transnationalism, and immigration. We welcome papers that rethink issues at the heart of these two movements: the category of the Other, the search for meaning in the world and its environment, freedom and oppression, the political and the private. We are also interested in how these movements have been in dialogue with each other.
