The Other Senses of Modernism (MSA 14)

This CFP is for MSA 14

While there has been increasing attention to the senses more generally and to the 'lower' senses of smell, taste, and touch in recent years, it is pretty clear that most scholarship on modernism that focuses on sensation is visually (and to a lesser extent aurally) oriented. Attention to the visual in modernist scholarship has allowed us to ask important questions about surface and glamour, affect and image, the urban landscape and the commodity, race and sexuality. But our largely visual version of modernism has also, perhaps, not allowed us to conceptualize and encounter the other senses of modernism.

SHORT FUSE, An Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference - OCTOBER 10, 2014

University of Pittsburgh, Department of French and Italian

From the quarrel of the Ancients and the Moderns to Julien Gracq's La littérature à l'estomac; from Zola's J'accuse...! to Celine's pamphlets, from Marinetti's Parole in libertà to Dario Fo's political farces, anger has often been a creative force; art, a forum for indignation. Yet, the point of origin of short-fused productions can be many: artistic disagreements, social debates, and political views are only three examples of what explosive literature and art can bring to light.

Possible themes and topics include but are not limited

E[RACE]ED: METHODOLOGY OF THE REPRESSED

Papers will take a pan-ethnic, interdisciplinary approach to interrogate ongoing American national concerns, veering away from insulated politico-racial narrative trajectories.

[UPDATE] Deadline Reminder - MSA 2014 - Frankfurt School Critical Theory in the 21st Century

The deadline for this CFP is quickly approaching!

This CFP is for the MSA 16 conference in Pittsburgh.

Once considered a touchstone of modernist aesthetics, politics, ethics, and cultural criticism, the critical theory of the Frankfurt School has seen its reputation suffer in the latter portion of the 20th century, in part because of its pessimism towards or outright dismissal of "€œmass culture,"€ as well as the perception that its purview is too narrowly European. More recent scholarship has begun to revalue the School'€™s critical theory and argue for its contemporary significance, especially for ecocriticism and postcolonial aesthetics and politics.

9th Global Conference: The Erotic

Tuesday 4th November – Thursday 6th November 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations

Mapping the field of the erotic is a complex and frustrating endeavour; as something which permeates lived experience, interpersonal relationships, intellectual reflection, aesthetic tastes and sensibilities, the erotic is clearly multi-layered and requires a plethora of approaches, insights and perspectives if we are to better to understand, appreciate and define it.

Myth-Making Across Boundaries (22-24 October 2014: Literature and Cultural Studies Conference, Ege University, Izmir/Turkey)

Every culture has its conception, interpretation, dissemination and reformulation of myths on a grand spectrum from oral and written narratives to aural and visual arts. Furthermore, myths from different cultures have similar formation mechanisms no matter how diverse social processes cultures might have undergone. The underlying motivation behind the similarity of myths, even myth-making processes, might be considered as deriving from various aspects and layers of cultural memory. Myths as one of the basic building blocks of culture are continuously rewoven into the fabric of memory.
Subjects for discussion may include, but are not limited to:
• Comparative creation myths
• Ancient myths and/vs. modern myths

5th Global Conference: Making Sense of: Suffering

Tuesday 4th November – Thursday 6th November 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations:

This inter- and multi-disciplinary conference seeks to explore if, or to what extent, meaning can be found in suffering. During the course of living our lives, we are invariably forced to stop and question why we suffer – be it through illness, pain, loss, grief or the multitude of distressing circumstances which we encounter. Problems arise in a variety of contexts and due to a bewildering variety of conditions. And because our lives are constant streams of experience, the nature of suffering and consequently the "meaning" of such suffering continually varies and changes.
