Michel Foucault: Discourse Theory and the Archive
(Göttingen University, 16 July 2016)

This year marks not only Michel Foucault's 90th birthday, but also the 50th anniversary of the publication of his seminal book Let Mots et les Choses, which made Foucault a prominent intellectual figure throughout Europe. We would like to commemorate this double anniversary with a one-day symposium organised by the Department of British Literature and Culture at Göttingen University in cooperation with the Göttingen Center for Genderstudies and the Center for Theory of Culture and Society.

NOSTALGIA - Deadline 20th April 2016

updated: 
Wednesday, March 9, 2016 - 11:06am
Dandelion Journal, Birkbeck College

The Dandelion editors seek submissions on the theme of NOSTALGIA for their forthcoming issue.

Nostalgia is a ubiquitous presence in contemporary culture. Images and fantasies of the past permeate cultural and political discourses: from the mediated recycling of retro culture and popular history, to nostalgia as a method of political renewal (for example, Donald Trump's campaign slogan 'Make America Great Again!' and Ken Loach's The Spirit of '45).

1) To present new readings of Beckett through the lens of Adorno and/or Badiou

2) To juxtapose Adorno and Badiou's reading of Beckett in order to show how each illuminates ethical and political shortcomings in the other

Please send a 250-500 word abstract to charlessumner@hotmail.com by April 1.

The Modernist Studies conference will be held from November 17-20, 2016, in Pasadena, California.

[UPDATE] Postcolonial Shakespeares - CFP for Postcolonial Interventions Vol I, Issue 2 -

updated: 
Tuesday, March 8, 2016 - 11:07am
Postcolonial Interventions: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Postcolonial Studies ISSN 2455 6564

2016 marks the quartercentenary of Shakespeare's death and the upcoming issue of Postcolonial Interventions will focus on the continued relevance of multiple Shakespeares in the culture-scape of the postcolonial world. Not only were Shakespearean plays shaped in many ways by colonial discourses, especially discourses of racial difference, but Shakespearean plays also initially functioned as those "signs taken for wonders" through which the colonial administrators sought to consolidate imperial hegemony, as evident from such critical works as Post-Colonial Shakespeares (1999).

[UPDATE] MLA 2017 Special Session: New Approaches to Existentialism and the Absurd (deadline 3/15/2016)

updated: 
Sunday, March 6, 2016 - 5:18pm
Julia Elsky / Loyola University Chicago

This is a call for a proposed panel, which will explore new approaches to the study of the existentialist and absurdist movements in the 20th century. We invite proposals for papers that rethink these movements in light of recent scholarship related to gender, race, ecology, transnationalism, and immigration. We welcome papers that rethink issues at the heart of these two movements: the category of the Other, the search for meaning in the world and its environment, freedom and oppression, the political and the private. We are also interested in how these movements have been in dialogue with each other.
