MyTerritory - Saturday 24 April 2010

School of English, University of Leicester, UK

Following on from two hugely successful recent conferences, the 2010 School of English postgraduate conference at the University of Leicester will address concepts of personal territory, in any of its manifestations. A sense of personal belonging, or 'home',
contributes towards the idea of having a territory, and this can take any number of physical and psychological forms. Topics that might be considered are:

[Update] Visual Arts in the 21st Century

Sunday, November 22, 2009 - 1:13pm
Rupkatha Journal on Interdisciplinary Studies in Humanities

In the wake of the digital revolution and globalisation policies the whole world is witnessing formation of certain conditions which are having and will continue to have tremendous impact on the production, reproduction, access, dissemination and appreciation of visual arts. While the old art forms and artworks are being revisited and reproduced in wholly new ways and for a variety of purposes, new types in the forms of digital arts are surfacing not only on the internet but also every place of our visual culture. The place and workplace of the artist also has undergone a radical change.

[UPDATE] Afterlives of the Nineteenth Century (ACLA 2010)

Saturday, November 21, 2009 - 7:42pm
Criscillia Benford, Marty Gould, Rebecca Mitchell

UPDATE: ACLA has extended the deadline for submissions to November 23.

The buzz surrounding recent Austen adaptation Pride and Prejudice and Zombies captures the ambivalence — equal parts horror and delight — evoked by the perpetual resuscitation of the nineteenth century. Leaving others to fight Austen's zombies, this seminar sets its historical sights slightly later, taking the figure of the zombie as a point of departure. Does Victorian Britain, like the zombie, refuse to remain quietly dead and buried? Or do we keep digging it up?

Global Financial Capital and New Realisms

Thursday, November 19, 2009 - 2:39pm
ACLA Annual Meeting at New Orleans

The recent economic crisis coincides with flourishing of new realism across different media in Europe and North America [Frazen's The Corrections in literature (2001), Audaird's The Prophet (2008) in film, Simon and Burns' The Wire (2002-2008) in television]. This realism distinguishes itself by an extensive preoccupation with poverty, migration, crime and urban violence while it stylistically appropriates violence as a commentary on the disposability of bodies under neo-liberal economy. The time seems ripe to explore what kind of realism is being produced in our historical moment. This seminar explores the prospects and limits of realism as a narrative mode that reflects on the contemporary capitalism, its trajectory, moments of crisis and recovery.

"The Aural Archive"

ACLA annual convention, New Orleans, April 1-4, 2010

Proposals due: Nov. 23, 2009 [Deadline extended]

This seminar aims to draw out several theoretical and methodological questions lurking behind recent work in media studies, performance studies, musicology, and literary studies: If the aural realm is ephemeral (as is often said), how does it factor into the historical record? When you listen to your archive, what and how do you hear? And how do you theorize the silences and noises in the archival grain?
