REMINDER: DEADLINE APPROACHING Oct. 28 2017

In 1995, Star Trek: Voyager launched in a way very different from its predecessor series.  Voyager took place thousands of light years from the Federation, and it contained a multi-ethnic crew with a female captain.  Voyager, in a sense, encapsulated the American zeitgeist of the 1990s when major demographic changes were transforming the population of America, and the post-Cold War era left us wondering what strategic alliances would mean moving forward. The series challenged the nature of the American mindset at the time.

Narrative Dynamism (ACLA '18)

updated: 
Thursday, September 14, 2017 - 12:30pm
American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 5, 2017

Unities, wholes, patterns, ends, beginnings, organization, structure: these terms all belong to the structuralist tool kit with which we are familiar, yet we believe that this vocabulary is in dire need of reassessment. While the structural impetuses of narratology continue, dynamic theories of narrative such as those proffered by Roland Barthes, Ross Chambers and others, have become less prominent.   In this seminar we will explore the following questions: What might a dynamic, systemic, and/or non-structuralist theory of narrative look like?  What narratives (in any medium) exemplify a dynamic notion of narrative? What additional insights might we gain by working through a dynamic as opposed to a structuralist approach to narrative and narratives?

The Anthropocene and Beyond

updated: 
Wednesday, September 13, 2017 - 10:02am
Hong Kong Shue Yan University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

Call for Conference Paper Proposals, “The Anthropocene and Beyond,” Hong Kong, 31 May-2 June 2018. Human society and culture have arrived at a pivotal moment in the production of scientific, economic, psychological, and even artistic and philosophical subjectivity and identity. The different “scales” inherent in the concept of the Anthropocene galvanize both the local and global, inviting academic research to adopt an interdisciplinary approach with unprecedented pace and intensity. The Anthropocene has emerged as the ultimate conceptual horizon of cultural, economic, and political debates, disrupting the whole pattern of our “thought” itself in a radical process of paradigm shift.
