Verge: Studies in Global Asias

Verge: Studies in Global Asias is a new journal that includes scholarship from scholars in both Asian and Asian American Studies. These two fields have traditionally defined themselves in opposition to one another, with the former focused on an area-studies, nationally and politically oriented approach, and the latter emphasizing epistemological categories, including ethnicity and citizenship, that drew mainly on the history of the United States. The past decade however has seen a series of rapprochements in which, for instance, categories "belonging" to Asian American Studies (ethnicity, race, diaspora) have been applied with increasing success to studies of Asia.

MadLit 2015 - "Dirty Talk: The Forms and Language of Pleasure" EXTENDED DEADLINE: Jan. 15

Thursday, January 8, 2015 - 11:45am
University of Wisconsin-Madison

The 11th Annual Graduate Conference on Language and Literature
at the University of Wisconsin-Madison // February 26-28, 2015

Dirty talk. Guilty pleasure. Darkest desire. Our everyday discourse is littered with phrases that shun or shame the pleasurable. Yet seeking pleasure, as figures from Chaucer to Freud have argued, is a basic human instinct. Scholarship across a variety of fields has gravitated toward humanity's complex relationship with pleasure.

Illinois State University, "Transgressions in English Studies." Deadline Jan 15th

Wednesday, January 7, 2015 - 10:15pm
Word's Worth English Studies Graduate Committee

Transgressions. When we think of transgressions, we may think of crossing borders—geopolitical, linguistic, cultural, ethical—circulations through or circumventions of boundary states, the perturbation, violation or abolishment of regulating functions, or the exploration of the forbidden, the taboo, unethical or the criminal. Transgressions can also be, however, the revolutionary spirit, subversive fortitude, a generative force, the problematizing of categories of difference, the frontier locations of codeswitching, hybridization, and the repurposing of genres, of words. Transgressions both inflict trauma and emerge out from it.

Resisting the Nation, Reproducing Colonial Misery: Sports and the Transnational Imaginary (ASA 2015)

updated: 
Wednesday, January 7, 2015 - 12:59pm
American Studies Association, Annual Meeting of the American Studies Association. (October 8-11, 2015. Toronto, Canada.)

In 1844, Canada and the USA played a cricket match at the St. George's Club in New York, which is now the site for NYU's Medical Centre. This long-forgotten match was the first international sporting event of the modern era, predating the revival of the Olympic Games by more than 50 years. Since then, cricket's place in the cultural imaginary of North America has been displaced by the emergence of baseball and hockey as the national sports of the USA and Canada. This piece of historical trivia serves as a line of departure for the panel to investigate how sports have engaged with—by perpetuating, resisting, institutionalizing—the hegemonic narratives of the nation-state.
