Biography and/as Experimental Fiction, 5 June

updated: 
Tuesday, January 20, 2015 - 2:54am
full name / name of organization: 
Goldsmiths University of London

This one-day conference deals with intersections of biography and/as experimental fiction in the 20th and 21st centuries. While for scientists an experiment is a common way of proving or disproving a hypothesis and thus of arriving at certainties, fiction writers have long been demonstrating that literary experiments tend to have the opposite effect: they open up alternative and multiple ways of reading and pose new epistemological challenges.

We - an international group of students enrolled in the MA Global History at Free University Berlin - would like to inform You about a conference in Global History for bachelor and graduate students, April 24-25 in Berlin. (We will be able to cover some travel and accommodation expenses.) Our idea is to provide a venue for ambitious students to spread and discuss their projects with a larger audience. This conference presents a very good opportunity to broaden perspectives ahead of future challenges. We accept texts written in English, Spanish, French and Italian, and the discussions will be held in English.

Death/Work: Afterlives of the Black Mortuary—ASA 2015 Toronto

updated: 
Saturday, January 17, 2015 - 11:27pm
full name / name of organization: 
American Studies Association

We seek interdisciplinary papers for a proposed panel investigating "the black mortuary," an analytic that considers the place of the black deceased within cultural, economic, and intellectual practices. Informed, in part, by Vincent Brown's groundbreaking text The Reaper's Garden: Death and Power in the World of Atlantic Slavery, this panel will explore the conceptual and constitutive work that racial death performs. We invoke a popular African American colloquialism, "who's got the body," to locate the contested ownerships of the (deceased) black body. And we ask, how might the corporeal remnants of blackness foreshadow new possibilities for myriad forms of oppositional action?

Between the nutrient and food, the food and the object of taste, are involved in a trajectory of meaning. Before reaching the essence of the taste it originates in the senses and sensations, the epitome of the gustative emotion. A trajectory both discrete and complex, a flow of flavor in value, a range of words in moments marked by emotions.
