The PAMLA (Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association) 2017 Conference will be held at the lovely Chaminade University of Honolulu (with the official conference hotel being the Ala Moana) from Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12.

This session focuses on the epistemic, philosophical, and political implications of seeing and speaking. It starts from the image of a face that speaks—an image that solicits further thoughts about the relation between visual arts and literary texts, between representation and dialogue imagination, between being seen as the other and speaking as the other.

When Objects 'Write Back': Rethinking Material Culture in the Tricontinent

Material culture assumes significance of massive proportions in cultures across the globe by virtue of its ability to trace everyday life and its nuances through the signifying metaphor of objects. The historical trajectories of nations, cultures and communities function in tandem with that of the prevailing material culture(s) in as much as transformations in the latter sphere inevitably represent ruptures or shifts in the former. The stories that objects recount surpass the boundaries of time and space as they transcend both. They function as signifying metaphors, carrying multiple significations of lives lived through and with them.

International Conference

The Left Conference – Photography and Film criticism

 

 

Since the late nineteenth century, the printed photograph in the media stood as a powerful tool for denouncing social injustice and claiming better life conditions – i.e. as seen in the work of Jacob Riis, Lewis Hine, or Joshua Benoliel, among many others. In the early decades of the twentieth century the use of images had a significant boost with film, when directors such as Flaherty, Eisenstein, John Grierson, Vertov, Dvorjenko or Ivens, combining documental intentions with avant-garde experimental claims, made possible to discuss political and historical conditions.

MFS Special Issue - Inter-imperiality

updated: 
Wednesday, May 3, 2017 - 2:38pm
Modern Fiction Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

The editors of MFS seek essays that engage with the concept of inter-imperiality, as developed in the recent PMLA “Theories and Methodologies” cluster (March 2015) and elsewhere. The global turn in literary and cultural studies, although productive, sometimes elides the post/colonial, economic, and other historical or geopolitical conditions of literary-cultural production. We solicit essays that offset this tendency by reading literary-cultural texts within an inter-imperial framework.

EnGendered Borders

Wednesday, May 3, 2017 - 2:39pm
Gender Forum: An Internet Journal for Gender Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 13, 2017

In a 2016 music video, “Borders”, the ever-controversial M.I.A., herself a Tamil refugee, comments on the gendered aspects of Western anxieties in the on-going refugee ‘crisis’: images of endless masses of all-male refugees of colour resonate with right-wing myths of uncivilized brown invaders, stealing jobs, raping white women and undermining Euro-American gender progressivism. In fact, gender issues are a constitutive force not only in refugee status and immigration law, but also in media discourses and popular knowledge production about refugees.

Special Session for PAMLA 2017 - Honolulu, HI

Nov 10-12, 2017

Victorian Empire and Oceania

Many analyses of Victorian empire focus on India and Africa, yet the British empire also expanded to many parts of Oceania, both directly and indirectly. The papers in this session will examine cultural texts that explore relationships between Victorian empire and Oceania. This session especially welcomes essays that make connections between Victorian empire and Hawai'i.

The PAMLA 2017 Conference will be held at the lovely Chaminade University of Honolulu (with the official conference hotel being the Ala Moana) from Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12.
