[UPDATE] Fandom & Neomedia Studies Conference

updated: 
Monday, October 22, 2012 - 1:20pm
Fandom and Neomedia Studies Association

We are pleased to announce a CFP for submissions to the First Annual Fandom and Neomedia Studies (FANS) Conference in Dallas, TX, on 1 and 2 June 2013. We are privileged to have Helen McCarthy as our keynote speaker.

Fandom for us includes all aspects of being a fan, ranging from being a passive audience member to producing one's own parafictive or interfictive creations. Neomedia includes both new media as it is customarily defined as well as new ways of using and conceptualizing traditional media.

Redeemer's University (RUN), Mowe, Nigeria

The twin issues of religion and development have had a long history of engagement in the humanities. From the perspectives of history and international relations, language and literature, and theatre arts, there have been many far-reaching scholarly enquiries into the complex relationship between the two and the roles they have played in helping to facilitate or to hinder personal, national and global progress.

Collaboration as Positioning -- 2013 ACLA Conference, Toronto

"Collaboration as Positioning"

Abstract Deadline: 15 November, 2012
Conference Date: April 4-7, 2013

Requiring the production and negotiation of one's position in relation to others, collaboration can be understood as a process both of mapping a whole and of locating oneself within it. Collaborations arise from the hope that multiple perspectives can generate new positions on problems, both artistic and political. This seminar welcomes papers on historical and contemporary methodologies of creative collaboration, considered as a strategy of positioning. How does collaboration affect our understanding of the relationship between community and singularity, between the private and the public?

Crosshatched Places: Mapping Spatial Complexities; ACLA, Toronto, April 4-7, 2013

updated: 
Saturday, October 20, 2012 - 12:14pm
American Comparative Literature Association

This panel explores how the trope of "crosshatching"—as elaborated in Mieville's novel, The City and the City, or illustrated by Sergei Larenkov's photography—helps us redraw cognitive maps of contested spaces. Crosshatching, where "two or more worlds inhabit the same territory," illustrates how spaces we live in or move through are palimpsests of differing, often competing, narratives. Consider, for example, riven cities like Berlin or Sarajevo, the Jewish ghetto of Renaissance Venice, the medieval pilgrim's Jerusalem. To negotiate such spaces comfortably, we "unsee" features that might breach the political or cultural truths by which we live.

[UPDATE] Across the Shadow Lines: Diasporas in the Age of Transnationalism (ACLA, Toronto, 4/4-4/7/13; deadline, 11/15/12)

As the movement of peoples across state borders, diasporas are both literal and imaginative insofar as they entail the concomitant crossing of cultural forms. Diasporas forge and decimate local communities, call into question the boundaries of the nation-state, and reconfigure international relations. Ideally, they can result in the creation of new modes of social relations by producing opportunities for education and work and also encouraging the cross-fertilization of peoples, ideas, and arts. Yet migration has historically often been the result of forced labor, persecution, war, environmental degradation, decolonization and neo-imperialism, and the unrelenting spread of global capital.
