Critical Afrocentric Re-Framing of Intellectual Portraits: Contemporary Updates to Traditions of Genius -- October 16-17, 2015

Thursday, February 19, 2015 - 12:47am
27th Annual Cheikh Anta Diop International Conference, Sponsosred by Diopian Institute for Scholarly Advancement (DISA) -- Location: The Wyndham-Historic District, Philadelphia, PA,

We seek cutting-edge papers from an international cadre of scholars to introduce intriguing and effective ideas about using the Afrocentric paradigm to update, re-frame, modernize, and re-engage African global intellectual legacies. We are excited about the methods and applications presenters will offer to give contemporary Afrocentric readings of the knowledge and values found in experiential and life narratives from the global African intellectual tradition. Such a collective exploration of the possibilities of discovery and re-discovery of innovation and genius-thought has dynamic potential to inform contemporary strategies for liberation, agency, historical awareness, and ancestral acknowledgment.

MLA Austin 2016 Special Session: More-Than-Human Publics in Nineteenth-Century English Literature

updated: 
Wednesday, February 18, 2015 - 11:50pm
Shun Yin Kiang/ Northeastern University

Possible topics: animal-human encounters, pastoral or colonial representations of ecologies/life words, and narratives and poetics of living in common(s). We especially welcome papers attending to the affective, everyday nature of more-than-huamn encounters and eco-spheres, as invoked/mediated in Romantic poetry and Victorian fiction. The diverse, if diffuse, impact this period's representations of more-than-human publics have on contemporary or subsequent readings of nineteenth-century England and its empire, and, more broadly, on animating new relations/approaches to postcolonial studies, green studies, bio-politics, more-than-humanism, etc., are of particular interest to this panel.
