[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.

How does metadata contribute to forgetting and the shape of memory? How do we define and put into practice the growing field of Digital Humanities?
