TRANS-AM :: Losing/Becoming Self

Individuals from around the globe travel to Louisiana early in the year to participate in Mardi Gras celebrations. Masks, costumes and reverie encourage participants to shed certain prefigured aspects of identity in order to become something new. Much of the excitement these traditions allow is rooted in the idea that one can undergo a personal, transformative experience by relinquishing a prefigured sense of self.

Following Paul Gilroy's Postcolonial Melancholia (2005) and Judith Butler's reappraisal of melancholia in Precarious Life (2004), this symposium seeks to consider whether contemporary British and Irish authors are haunted, constrained or inspired by national identity or whether they actually undermine attempts to use this concept to define their work.

"Beneath these Pooled Waters: Damming in Literature, Film, and Culture" Panel proposal for the ASLE Eleventh Biennial Conference

contact email: 

This panel--to be held at ASLE's biennial conference, June 23-27, 2015 at the University of Idaho, in Moscow, ID--will mine the conference theme of "Notes from the Underground: the Depths of Environmental Arts, Culture, and Justice," as it explores the planning, design, and implementation of dams, as well as their aftermath. While damming in the United States proliferated during the mid-twentieth century, dams are now generally understood as ecologically and culturally harmful. In light of our contemporary understanding of dams, this panel seeks to drudge up what has been silenced by the floodwaters.

We find ourselves in a world where economic logic rules the day. Caught within the rationality of neoliberalism, those of us who contest austerity, privatization, and the concomitant militarization of civil society are often left to counter them through vague logics of redistribution which take as given the very systems of accounting which we seek to undermine.
