"The Means, Ends, and Representation of Radical Political Experience"

This panel will focus on modernist literature that represents the means of radical or revolutionary political movements – instinctual repression, iron discipline and eclipse of personal freedom, hierarchical organization, etc. – in opposition to their manifest goals of personal freedom and equality.

[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.

Vol. 42 No. 1 | March 2016
Deadline for Submissions: June 30, 2015

In the last ten years memory studies has experienced a gradual shift towards comparative, interdisciplinary, and border-crossing perspectives. Studies on cosmopolitan memory (Levy and Sznaider), multidirectional memory (Rothberg), transcultural memory (Crownshaw), travelling memory (Erll), or transnational memory (De Chesari and Rigney) highlight the circulatory, competing, overlapping, fluid and dynamic nature of the processes of remembrance and cultural memory.
