Literati 2014: Speaking Bodies
University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, WI

www.museuw.com/call-for-papers

Textual bodies have long served as a battleground for conceiving of the human body. Through the lens of literature, people have fathomed the body's limits, its relationship to identity, its ability to liberate or enchain. Literati 2014's theme, "Speaking Bodies," asks, What does it mean to be embodied, and what are the consequences of conceiving of human or textual bodies as "legible"? Who or what gets to establish the limits of these bodies? How are they able to transform or be transformed?

Sonic Economies: Sound, Voice, Substance

updated: 
Friday, November 8, 2013 - 12:13pm
ACLA Annual Meeting, March 20-23, New York University

If sound is a physical property, it is also at once a property of ambiguous physical effect, and an effect difficult to regulate as property. We speak of the weight or grip of a voice, the worth or substance of a song, of sound —environmental and linguistic, especially—as a thing to be lost, but also to be gained or regained. We speak, through the terms of new media and recording technology, of sound preservation and purification, of sonic hierarchies or dismantlings: mixing, splicing, sampling. Yet this investment in the materiality, or materialization, of sound is an uneasy one, at constant odds with what we know of sound's fragilities and invisibilities, its resistance to ownership, its tendencies toward corruption, disruption, and decay.

Fear and Loathing: Phobia in Literature and Culture 9th-10th May 2014

updated: 
Wednesday, November 6, 2013 - 2:11pm
Centre for Gender, Sexuality and Writing, School of English, University of Kent, Canterbury, United Kingdom

Focusing on the literary and historical representation of irrational emotions or phobias, Fear and Loathing seeks papers on topics and authors from any period, which aim to demonstrate the extent to which literary-historical study offers us unique insight into the cultural politics of emotions. Given the growth of both affect studies and historical enquiry into emotions over the past decade, Humanities scholarship has generated a rich and varied body of work on the representations and histories of emotions, sentiments, feelings and affects. This two-day international conference seeks to build upon this research and to reflect upon the relationship between the Humanities and the study of emotions more generally.
