Call for Panels - Europe and its Worlds: Cultural Mobility in, to and from Europe

Radboud University Nijmegen, Faculty of Arts and Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies

The Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies at Radboud University Nijmegen jointly welcome panel proposals for an international conference on their common research theme 'Europe and its Worlds'. At the core of this theme is the question of how Europe has always consisted of different worlds, how it differs from the rest of the world, and how it interacts with other worlds. This conference specifically addresses the many ways in which cultural mobility impacts on European culture, past and present. The notion of cultural mobility raises new questions on issues of persistance, change and interaction, as Stephen Greenblatt argues in Cultural Mobility: A Manifesto (2010).

ACLA 2013 Seminar: Migrant Cartography: (Dis)Placing South Asia (DEADLINE: November 15)

With more than 14% of the world's refugee population, South Asia, as a region, hosts the fourth largest concentration of refugees. Displaced on account of religious, ethnic and political conflicts, refugee communities force us to experience the fluidity of borders from within the cartography of nations. From the refugee cross-border migrations during the Partition of India in 1947 to the more recent Tamil refugee crisis in Sri Lanka, the influx of Afghan war refugees in Pakistan, and the relocation of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, modern South Asia has repeatedly witnessed the pain of people in a state of statelessness.

[UPDATE] ACLA 2013: "Repositioning America as an Atlantic and Pacific Nation" (April 4-7, 2013) DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION NOV. 15

Monday, November 5, 2012 - 4:54pm
American Comparative Literature Association [ACLA]

"The United States," says Bruce Cumings, "is the only great power with long Atlantic and Pacific coasts, making it simultaneously an Atlantic and a Pacific nation." Yet, theorizations of transnational America conventionally focus on one or the other, not both. This seminar explores the challenge of situating America bicoastally as a problem of epistemology that engaging with American literary and philosophical histories can illuminate. We posit alongside Carolyn Porter that what vexes the American subject's ability to position itself in history and geography is an Emersonian literary tradition of ahistorical and reified consciousness.

The Human and the Non-Human

March 22nd, 2013 -- Oxford, OH

"Beyond the edge of the so-called human, beyond it but by no means on a single opposing side, rather than "The Animal" or "Animal Life" there is already a heterogeneous multiplicity of the living or more precisely...a multiplicity of organizations of relations between living and dead" - Jacques Derrida

"(Dis)realities and the Literary and Cultural Imagination" April 5-6, 2013

Monday, November 5, 2012 - 10:16am
Graduate English Organization Conference, University of Maryland, College Park

What is (dis)reality? In The Metaphysics of Virtual Reality, Michael Heim notes the multiple attempts to define reality in Western history. The effort to delineate reality begins with Plato's notion of ideal forms as the "really real," through Aristotle's emphasis on material substance. Reality in medieval times is mirrored in the shimmer of religious symbols; efforts to catalogue the real mark the Renaissance, and the atomic bomb defines the reality of the Modern era. In contrast, material representations of the "real" are often surreal, intangible, and unregulated in Latin American, Caribbean and African literatures and cultures e.g. the work of Gabriel García Márquez, Ben Okri amongst many others.
