Writing from Below

"What if there were, lodged within the heart of the law itself, a law of impurity or a principle of contamination?"
-Jacques Derrida, "The Law of Genre"

THE THEME
Unlawfulness, impurity, contamination: in the porous and scattered disciplines of gender, sexuality and diversity studies, these are the forces and strategies that impel our criticism and creation, the ethos of the fugitive journal Writing from Below.

African Migrations: Transcultural Identities in the Making

Monday, July 7, 2014 - 11:59am
Dalarna University, sweden and University of Botswana

The phenomenon of migration is well-established in the history of human societies, where individuals or groups of people have moved from one place to another, either across international borders or internally within a state, for various reasons, such as political, religious, social, or economic. The experience of migration, whether it applies to refugees, displaced persons, or economic migrants, raises a number of important questions in terms of its effects on the individual and on society. These questions relate to the negotiation of identity on the part of the migrant, the effects of personal and cultural displacement, and not least questions concerning global justice and human rights.

NeMLA Seminar: Identity, Politics, and Universals in Literary Theory and Beyond (30/9/2014: 30-3/4-5/2015)

updated: 
Saturday, July 5, 2014 - 4:39pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

In recent years, the position that argues that human actions are guided by certain Universals (biological, cognitive, emotive, and moral) that are common to all humanity has been contested. Literary traditions such as poststructuralist thought represented by the views of thinkers like Michael Foucault have seen human identity exclusively as a product of class struggle. However, alternate views represented by Martha Nussbaum and several others have challenged this by claiming that human identity is guided by certain non-coercive universals that determine how human beings identify and respond to society.

[UPDATE] Toward an Ecosomatic Paradigm: Disability and the Environment in American Literature; August 1, 2014

updated: 
Thursday, July 3, 2014 - 5:32pm
Matthew J.C. Cella, PhD [Edited Collection]

I seek contributors to an edited collection focused on the intersection between disability studies and literary ecology, particularly as it plays out in American literature and culture. More specifically, the collection will investigate the role that literary ecology plays in upholding what might be called the ecosomatic paradigm. As a theoretical framework, the ecosomatic paradigm underscores the dynamic and inter-relational (and thereby ecological) process wherein human mind-bodies interface with the places, both built and wild, they inhabit. That is, the ecosomatic paradigm proceeds from the assumption that nature and culture interact in an ongoing, dialectical relationship that has implications for both the human subject and the natural world.

DISASTER AND DISEASE IN AFRICAN LITERATURE: THE AESTHETICS OF ENDURANCE (SAMLA, Nov. 7-9, Atlanta)EXTENDED DEADLINE

updated: 
Thursday, July 3, 2014 - 4:44pm
Renee Schatteman

This panel proposes to examine the work of writers who explore environmental or health hardships experienced by communities in African countries. Papers are encouraged to engage with the complexities of writing on these topics: for example, the difficulty of representing lived realities of disaster or disease without reinforcing the stereotype of Africa as a space of continual crisis or the challenge of crafting an aesthetic that can adequately contain suffering and the will to endure. By July 15, 2014, please submit a 300-word abstract and A/V requirements to Renée Schatteman, Georgia State University, at schatteman@gsu.edu.
